LitePoint Corp.'s single-box IQmax tester supports the IEEE 802.16-2004 / WirelessMAN OFDM PHY standard including all bandwidth and data rate options.
Dual RF ports are selectable for either Tx or Rx operation and support the 3.3 to 3.8 GHz frequency band. An optional upgrade to tri-band operation, which adds 2 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands, will be available later this year.
IQmax is based on the company's Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) and Vector Signal Generator (VSG) architecture and has features systems designers, volume manufacturing test and quality assurance (Q/A) stations at the lowest possible cost.
IQmax includes the company's IQsignal analysis suite, which delivers all IQmax instrument set-up, control and analysis functions needed to measure the performance of a Device-Under-Test (DUT).
Many analysis functions are available including time domain RF and I&Q graphs, frequency spectrogram, power spectral density, constellation diagrams, EVM per symbol or subcarriers and peak, average power levels and many other functions.
To support automated laboratory and manufacturing floor testing, a C++ compatible API is included with the IQmax Test System which enables fast non-link based testing.
The IQmax Test System is software upgradeable for easy transition to the proposed 802.16e standard or feature enhancements and product upgrades. The IQmax Test System is available now.
