Aeroflex introduces its PXI 3030 TD-SCDMA Measurement Suite to provide fast and cost-effective production testing of mobile handsets and RFICs based on ETSI 3GPP TS 34-122. The PXI 3000 Series brings speed and modularity to the TD-SCDMA test market. It supports all major cellular standards, including 3GPP LTE, CDMA2000, 1xEVDO, GSM, W-CDMA, and mobile WiMAX. The wireless connectivity standards WLAN and Bluetooth are expected to be integrated into most TD-SCDMA phones and are also supported in this single box solution. Users can upgrade and add new standards to their test systems quickly through simple software upgrades as the need for hybrid phones featuring TD-SCDMA and alternative 2G or 3G standards starts to pick up. The PXI Measurement Suite makes parametric measurements of TD-SCDMA transmitters and supports high-speed alignment and performance verification of devices operated in a non-signaling mode. Applications include high-speed/high-throughput mobile handset testing as well as RFIC characterization.
