Most Versatile RF Instrument Available

Featuring Averna’s leading RF and test expertise, the software-defined AST-1000 is powered by the NI VST (second generation), and can generate all common RF signals, including AM/FM, DAB, HD Radio, Sirius XM, and GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, QZSS, BEIDOU). This all-in-one solution is ideal for validating automotive infotainment systems.

Due to the AST-1000’s FPGA-based design, this software-defined instrument will soon be able to accommodate new signals too – including Connectivity protocols like Bluetooth and WiFi, and non-RF signals like CAN for bus monitoring.
