LitePoint Corporation Announces IQmax Test System for 802.16 (WiMAX) Products
Demonstrating Continued Commitment to Develop Complete Test Solutions for Emerging Wireless Technologies
SUNNYVALE, CA (USA)LitePoint Corporation, an industry leading provider of advanced wireless "One-Box Tester" solutions, announces the new IQmax Test System supporting WiMAX products based on the IEEE 802.16 standard. Based on an integrated Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) and Vector Signal Generator (VSG) architecture, the single box IQmax Test System can test critical physical layer radio parameters for developers, volume manufacturing test and quality assurance (Q/A) stations at the lowest possible cost.
"Our release of the IQmax Test System represents the latest first-to-market product from LitePoint showing our continued commitment to our customers to provide the lowest cost-of-test manufacturing and Q/A solutions in the market" said Greg Ravenscroft, President / Advanced Development at LitePoint Corporation, Mr. Ravenscroft continued "LitePoint pioneered dedicated WiFi legacy and WiFi MIMO test solutions and was the first to support Bluetooth 2.0+EDR testing."
The IQmax Test System supports the IEEE 802.16-2004 / WirelessMAN OFDM PHY standard including all bandwidth and data rate options. The dual RF ports are selectable for either Tx or Rx operation and support the most popular 3.3 to 3.8GHz frequency band. An optional upgrade to tri-band operation, which adds 2GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, will be available later this year.
Included with the IQmax Test System is the richly featured IQsignal Analysis Suite. This GUI driven software presents the user with all IQmax instrument set-up, control and analysis functions needed to measure the performance of a Device-Under-Test (DUT). With this tool, 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. Contact LitePoint for a demonstration of the IQmax Test Solution at +1 (408) 456-5000 / email: firstname.lastname@example.org or your local LitePoint Distributor.
