The IQmax Test System now supports tests of fixed and mobile WiMAX products in the 2.15 to 2.7 GHz and 4.9 to 6.0 GHz bands. The 3.3 to 3.8GHz band was previously supported.
Optional test support is available for WiFi and Bluetooth products.
Based on an integrated Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA) and Vector Signal Generator (VSG) architecture, the single-box IQmax Test System can test critical WiMAX physical layer parameters for developers, volume manufacturing and quality assurance (QA) at the lowest possible cost.
This one-box instrument meets all international WiMAX development, production, and QA test needs for both fixed (16d) and mobile (16e) as well as optional WiFi and Bluetooth and is software upgradeable to easily address any future needs.
The IQmax Test System supports the IEEE 802.16e-2005 / WirelessMAN OFDMA (mobile WiMAX) and 802.16-2004 / WirelessMAN OFDM (fixed WiMAX) physical layer standards including all bandwidth and data rate options. The WiFi option adds support for IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 1.1/1.2/2.0 + EDR.
Included with the IQmax Test System is the intuitive and 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.
The software is capable of automatic detection of most critical signal parameters, including bandwidth, rate ID, cyclic prefix, and 16e burst map. This simplifies capture and analysis of complex WiMAX waveforms.
To support automated laboratory and manufacturing floor testing, a C++ compatible API is included with the IQmax Test System which enables fast testing with limited user-interaction.
The IQmax Test System is available now. Two product configurations are available, optimized for either R&D (IQmax-500) or Manufacturing (IQmax-100) test applications.
