WLAN and GSM/EDGE Measurement Suites
Aeroflex announces a measurement suite for WLAN as well as expanding features of the existing GSM/EDGE measurement suite. These measurement suites for use with the company’s PXI modular RF platform will help speed up testing during the development and manufacture of WLAN and cellular devices using a single Aeroflex test system. The Aeroflex PXI measurement suites for WLAN and GSM/EDGE will test all modulation formats of 802.11a, b and g WLAN or GSM/EDGE devices. The WLAN and GSM/EDGE measurement suites offer the ability to make a variety of spectrum, modulation and power measurements with a single PXI test system, saving time and test resources. Both suites are options to the Aeroflex 3030 PXI RF digitizer family. The WLAN Measurement Suite expands the capability of the Aeroflex 3030 PXI RF digitizer to perform OFDMA (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing Access) also known as multi-user OFDM, and DSSS (Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum) power, spectrum and modulation measurements in accordance with 802.11 standards. The Aeroflex GSM/EDGE Measurement Suite is now extended to include receiver as well as transmitter testing.
