New LitePoint IQxel-MW: the world’s first test solution for the next generation of Wi-Fi technologies

New LitePoint IQxel-MW: the world’s first test solution for the next generation of Wi-Fi technologies

Published: 25th May 2016

The IQxel-MW is the newest member of LitePoint’s industry-leading IQxel family of test systems. The IQxel-MW is designed to meet the demanding performance needs of the latest version of the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, as well as the upcoming 802.11ax standard.

“Consumers are in a constant search for stronger and more stable connections for their Wi-Fi enabled devices. 802.11ac and 802.11ax will enable a huge improvement on both fronts. If you’ve been in an airport, café, or other setting where you’re showing a strong Wi-Fi signal, but can’t get or hold a stable Wi-Fi connection, these advances will make those frustrations a thing of the past.” said Brad Robbins, President of LitePoint.

Robbins added, “The IQxel-MW is the next generation of our industry-leading IQxel connectivity tester that enables our customers to get the world’s most advanced wireless technology into consumers’ hands…fast. Product feature differentiation only lasts for a very short period of time in consumer electronics. It’s critical that companies also differentiate with quality — ensuring that their products work exactly as consumers expect…every time. That is what the IQxel-MW delivers for our customers.”

The LitePoint IQxel-MW is available now from MCS Test Equipment.

Quantenna Communications, a leading provider of Wi-Fi chipset solutions, has chosen the IQxel-MW for calibration and verification of their new 802.11ac Wave 3 chipsets. Their customers now can quickly and easily achieve improved wireless performance on the QSR10G chipset platform by calibrating and verifying chip performance with LitePoint’s IQxel-MW test system with IQfact± test software. This powerful combination enables fast manufacturing product ramps … avoiding lengthy test development and debugging cycles.

Quantenna recommends the IQxel-MW to their customers for calibrating and verifying the Quantenna 10G Wave 3 Wi-Fi family of chipsets.

“We have been working with LitePoint for many years on their IQfact+ software solutions that enable LitePoint testers to perform tests on Quantenna chipsets right out of the box— no programming required. We are often first to market with new technologies like 4x4 802.11ac and 8x8 802.11ac. Time to market is vital to our customers. Having the IQxel-MW ready to go when our new solutions came out was critical,” said Dr. Sam Heidari, CEO of Quantenna.
