LitePoint introduces First Test System for Wi-Fi 6 in the 6 GHz Frequency Band

Published: 25th February 2020

LitePoint has announced the release of the LitePoint IQxel-MW™ 7G, the first fully integrated tester for Wi-Fi 6 in the 6 GHz frequency band meeting the needs of product development and high-volume manufacturing.

Wi-Fi 6 currently operates in the 2.4 GHz or 5 GHz frequency bands. The FCC and EU regulatory agencies have recently announced plans to extend Wi-Fi to the 6 GHz frequency band (5.925-7.125 GHz) for unlicensed use in 2020.

“LitePoint is ready now to support the 6 GHz band product development with the IQxel-MW 7G, a compatible extension of our widely adopted IQxel family” said Eve Danel, Product Marketing Manager at LitePoint. “We are working closely with leading chipset manufacturers to provide a high performance, cost-effective test platform with seamless transition from the lab to production.”

IQxel-MW 7G Technical Details

The IQxel-MW 7G is designed to meet the testing demands of connectivity and cellular technologies operating between 400 MHz and 7.3 GHz.

The platform supports a full range of wireless technologies: Wi-Fi 6, WLAN legacy, all Bluetooth device standards (1.x, 2.x, 3.0, 4.x, 5.x) Bluetooth 5.1, including cellular TDD and FDD non-signaling test modes for 2G/3G/4G and 5G cellular technologies. The IQxel-MW 7G is an ideal solution for today’s Wi-Fi 6 devices as well as the future requirements for Wi-Fi 6 and cellular 5G NR-U coexistence testing.

IQxel-MW 7G is available now from MCS Test.
