Berkeley Varitronics Systems, Inc, continues to Clarify RF by
releasing the latest reptile in the growing family of stimulus
transmitters used around the globe for drive-study analysis.

The engineering team at Berkeley will showcase the Tortoise a high
power stimulus transmitter containing ultra-clean, Class A amplifiers
for simultaneous, dual-band independent transmissions from one
portable unit. Quad cooling fans keep Tortoise cool, while the
internal dual amplifiers simultaneously transmit up to 45 watts each
allowing for more efficient drive-studies to be conducted within two
distinct bands. Tortoise is easily controlled directly from the
unit’s top panel or through the ethernet, USB or RS-232 ports using
the supplied remote control PC software. The unit has built-in
over-voltage protection, forward and reverse power measurement as
well as internal and external temperature measurements. Unique to
the Tortoise will be an optional WiMAX modulator allowing users to
simulate a WiMAX network when used in conjunction with the
YellowFinWiMAX Analyzer.

“Like a live tortoise which can live up to 150 years, Berkeley’s
Tortoise is designed for ruggedness and longevity.” says Scott
Schober, President/CEO.
