LitePoint IQxel-MW Multi-Device Test Solution Product Description

High-performance test for 160 MHz & 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 devices

As 802.11ac (Wi-Fi 5) and 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6) technologies are adopted by device makers, product requirements are becoming more complicated, leading to complex test setups. IQxel-MW is equipped with new features that simplify production testing and lower production costs. The IQxel-MW series is available in three configurations—2 ports, 8 ports and 16 ports—which support up to 2×2, 4×4 and scalable to 8×8 true MIMO testing.

Designed for the Demanding Requirements of 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6)

  • Class-defining residual EVM performance for 1024-QAM
  • Unrivaled RF port configurability, eliminating the need for external components in the test fixture
  • Native support for per-port 160 MHz and 80+80 MHz signal combination
  • Simultaneous dual-band test enabled (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz): ensures performance of TX/TX, TX/RX and RX/RX operating modes
  • Support for single-user OFDMA, multi-user OFDMA, Uplink and Downlink
  • Patented Packet Engine™ technology for 802.11ax MU-OFDMA power and timing control verification

Highest Test Throughput for Manufacturing

  • Industry-leading test speed and efficiency delivered by LitePoint’s patented Packet Engine™ technology
  • Parallel multi-DUT test architecture lets you independently start and stop testing for each device in the same test station
  • Re-use existing equipment, preserve your factory setup, and consolidate multiple test stations into one
