Graphical User Interface

The intuitive WISP/mini-WISP GUI runs on a laptop computer (laptop included with WISP; offered as option for mini-WISP).  The GUI controls powerful use modes with flexibility to support a wide variety of operational scenarios. Users can manage transmitted and captured signal files and can stream raw data and analyze wireless protocols using signal analysis software. The WISP/mini-WISP GUI can be operated remotely.

Optional Power Amplifier Modules for Mini-WISP

WISP units include integrated power amplifiers. For mini-WISP units, optional external Power Amplifier Modules are available for applications requiring higher output power. Mini-WISP PA Modules are controlled from the mini-WISP user interface to provide accurate, power-calibrated output levels.  Mini-WISP PA Modules are available in single-channel and dual-channel versions and can be configured for frequency coverage and power.  A popular version provides up to 5 W of power over 500 MHz-4200 MHz and is powered by either AC or DC (9-36 V).
