LitePoint IQxel The First 802.11ac Manufacturing Test Solution

LitePoint Introduces IQxel—The First 802.11ac Manufacturing Test Solution

Published: 5th March 2012

LitePoint, a leading provider of wireless test solutions, has announced the industry’s first manufacturing test solution for very high throughput wireless devices supporting the 802.11ac standard. The LitePoint IQxel™ rapidly tests 802.11 a/b/g/n/p/ac and Bluetooth 1.0, 2.1, 3.0 and 4.0 devices in an easy to deploy, single-box test solution.

“802.11ac, the 5th generation of Wi-Fi (5G WiFi), is the world’s fastest and most reliable Wi-Fi for HD-quality video streaming and near instantaneous data synch. Broadcom is working aggressively with LitePoint to design an efficient and consistent testing solution that will enable our customers to deliver state-of-the-art, high-performance 5G WiFi products to the market,” said Bryan Richter, Director, Hardware Development Engineering, Broadcom.

John Lukez, Director of Product Marketing for LitePoint added, “The IQxel extends LitePoint’s leadership in connectivity testing to the fast growing 802.11ac technology space. It enables LitePoint’s many existing customers to easily test all 802.11 technology modes by leveraging their existing test software.”

The IQxel runs test programs written for previous generations of LitePoint test equipment enabling a straightforward transition for customers from IQflex and IQview to 802.11ac technology devices. Customers can quickly ramp volume production in days utilising LitePoint’s large library of over 100 IQfact™ chipset test software solutions.

IQxel tests 802.11ac 80 MHz and 160 MHz SISO and MIMO devices delivering the high- performance EVM measurement capabilities needed for 256 QAM modulation used in 802.11ac. IQxel provides consistent test yields and reliability in manufacturing environments owing to its single chassis design with fully calibrated RF measurements to the DUT connection point.

Power supplies and voltage regulators are typically designed to maintain a constant voltage over a particular current range. The supply should respond quickly to demand changes while maintaining a constant output, without excessive ringing or oscillation. To do this, power supplies are essentially amplifiers with a closed feedback loop.
