© 2017 IEEE. The architecture of a software-driven testbed is discussed. The test setup has been developed as measurement and instrumentation system to functionally verify and thermally validate the communication subsystems designed and manufactured for the nanosatellite applications. The system is applied for qualification of a communications subsystem currently under consideration for ZA-CUBE-2 mission.
