For 36 years, Berkeley Varitronics Systems has provided design and consulting services for the telecommunications industry. We cover a wide range of disciplines and client needs ranging from programming, DSP software, hardware production engineering to light manufacturing.
BVS' inter-disciplined team thrives on technical challenges and works to find creative and sometimes novel solutions. We specialize in RF, video, audio, high-speed digital, analog and signal processing technologies with an emphasis on the unlicensed 802.11 Wi-Fi and WiMAX bands. In 1995, BVS released its own wireless test transmitter and receiver line-up for various PCS, Cellular and CDMA network installs. Some standout features include portability, durability, spectrum analysis, BER, packet demodulation, PER, direction finding and a host of optional mapping coverage validation software packages.
BVS has the YellowFin-LTE™ 4G analyzer which is the world's first truly portable calibrated, demodulating LTE test receiver. This handheld unit utilizes the Samsung Q1 Ultra tablet UMPC as an interface in conjunction with Berkeley's precision receiver technology for complete spectrum analysis as well as LTE physical layer demodulation. The receiver sweeps the 700 MHz to 2.0 GHz or 2.0 GHz to 5.9 GHz spectrums (choose model) to within +1.5 dB accuracy measuring both primary & secondary synchronization signals for RSSI, Signal Quality/CINR and Multipath. YellowFin-LTE™ spectrum analysis also performs interference detection, channel clearing with trigger/synchronization modes for LTE signal frequency analysis. LTE demodulates the physical layer for Identity, Cell Identity Group, Cell Identity, Extended CP, BS Antenna Count and PBCH Channel. The optional DF (Direction Finding) Antenna allows engineers to pinpoint sources of LTE interference, rogue base stations and even nearby hackers. An internal 12-channel/satellite GPS receiver allows for geo-coded site surveys and drive-studies using optional mapping software.
BVS’ manufacturing methods are designed to control quality and fast turn-around for customers' products. We utilize automated surface mount (SMT) and through-hole printed circuit board assembly techniques which provide quick (sometimes in just 48 hours) delivery of prototype or small production runs. Because of our internal manufacturing experience, we are sensitive to costs, manufacturability, parts availability, test-ware and other critical elements. We make not just a design that works, but one that can be made efficiently and is reliable. Hardware design and prototyping are expedited through the use of in-house CAD tools, including schematic capture, PC board layout, Bridgeport, mechanical and LSI gate array design and simulation.
