Multiple Radio Controller and Test Interface: Proof of Concept
Tait base stations and repeaters are designed for mission-critical operation and engineered to provide unbeatable performance and reliability. In development testing of the RF base stations, we carry out a number of tests using radios and other equipment in a continuous integration test system. On this project, you will work with experienced engineers to investigate and prove the concept of a new test interface controller that, if fully developed, could replace other unreliable legacy interfaces. Currently, the systems in use are comprised of expensive and limited 3rd party equipment, or custom build circuits that are not fully reliable. The technical challenge will therefore be to carry out a proof of concept with several Evaluation Boards (audio codec, USB hub, multiple Uart and Arduino) and integrate them within the existing test framework. To do this, you will need to develop a software interface for control from a Linux host to the trialled integrated circuit components. By the end of the project, you should be able to make a recommendation on whether the proof of concept is a practical solution, cost implications of the development and whether it could be a common test interface approach that may help identify improvements to the test control systems. This project would be suited to someone with background working in Linux and programming in Python. An interest in or background with using embedded hardware would be an advantage, as would background with or interest in single board computers.
