Designed to create a custom cellular environment to serve testing and characterization needs. The combination of high power, real-time computing and the software defined radio platform enables this instrument to create your own cells for testing in a compact size and cost-efficient way.


Validating cellular devices like automotive telematic control units (TCUs), new generation vehicle-to-vehicle communication modules, smartphones or IoT cellular interfaces requires recreating complex RF test scenarios on your workbench. The NOFFZ Base Station Emulator makes this possible by creating a custom cellular network covering technologies from 2G to 5G. Equipped for dual-cell SISO, 2×2 MIMO or single-cell 4×4 MIMO operation to conduct tests for multiple phone modules in parallel: Voice call, text messaging, eCall, VoIP, maximum data throughput or mobile hotspot sharing.


  • Manages multiple TCUs and dual SIM module validation testing in parallel
  • Tests voice call, texting, eCall, high-speed data traffic, VoIP, Wi-Fi hotspot, connected gateway, and other wireless capabilities with real-world network coverage from 2G to 5G
  • Scales up to 4 independent cells, intra radio access technology handover, and different MIMO scenarios


  • Cost-efficiency: Switch from a traditional box instrument to an SDR platform                
  • High channel count: Move from single-DUT validation to a multi-DUT system
  • Full system integration: Up to a complete infotainment validation system including global navigation satellite system, broadcast, wireless, and Bluetooth
