With the release of cDASY6 Module SAR V6.12, SPEAG pushes on to provide customers with more efficient specific absorption rate (SAR) compliance testing. Thanks to the new application programming interface (API), users can now customize the testing workflow of their DASY6 systems. Compliance measurements become:
Other additions and improvements include:
The API Option is specifically designed to increase your efficiency when performing SAR compliance testing with your DASY6 system. Typical use cases are:
To achieve these workflow optimizations, an API Server that enables remote control of DASY6 via HTTP requests is integrated in V6.12. End-users can automate their measurement procedures through custom scripts.
The API Option is compatible with a broad range of programming languages and operating systems. The most common instructions are already available (e.g., perform a scan, extract SAR results, generate a report). This library of instructions will be extended in future releases.
The Jupyter notebooks available in the cDASY6 API Tutorial guide users to develop optimized scripts for each application. In the video below, the BNN Test & Calibration Laboratory in Delhi demonstrates how the new API Option is used to automate SAR measurements with cDASY6.
Note that SPEAG is developing an API Option for cDASY6 Module mmWave, to be released in Q3/2020.
Support for the first set of 5G New Radio Frequency Range 1 (5G NR FR1) communication systems was released in October 2019 with cDASY6 V6.10. In V6.12, the communication systems database was extended to include frequency-division duplex (FDD) signals. Most importantly, from now on, the communications system library can be updated in the software without having to wait for a new release. Future versions will be available for download at SPEAG’s website.
All robot commands have been thoroughly reviewed and made more user-friendly in cDASY6 V6.12. The following robot commands are now available:
Based on valuable customer feedback, SPEAG has added new scanning features to cDASY6 V6.12:
cDASY6 V6.12 includes many other small but important advancements to improve the measurement experience. In particular, the amount of memory used by the software is dramatically reduced, making it more responsive after a long session of measurements.
