WirelessHD compliance test system debuts
Agilent also announced a partnership with Compliance Certification Services (CCS), the WirelessHD Consortium's Authorised Test Centre (ATC). Agilent will provide WirelessHD test systems to CCS while working with them to continue to define improvements and features for WirelessHD certification test, ensuring device compliance with the WirelessHD Compliance Test Specification.
The WirelessHD specification is the next-generation, wireless digital network interface for wireless high-definition signal transmission in consumer electronics, personal computing and portable device products. Architected and optimised for wireless display and audio connectivity, it achieves high-speed data rates of up to 4Gbps at 10 meters. Based on the 60 GHz millimeter wave frequency band, WirelessHD technology can theoretically support data rates as high as 25Gbps, allowing it to scale to higher resolutions, colour depth and range.
Agilent's CTS-1000 system provides WirelessHD adopters with a complete solution for testing compliance of their devices to WirelessHD standards. The CTS-1000 automates measurements such as error vector magnitude, frequency, power, occupied bandwidth, and packet error rate on signals generated by a WirelessHD device under test conditions.
The system is comprised of Agilent's PSG microwave signal generator, PSA spectrum analyser, Infiniium DSO 90000A high performance oscilloscope, a purpose-built down-converter, and automated test software. A reference test unit is used to establish a link between the device under test and the CTS-1000.
Agilent's CTS-1000 system will be commercially available on June 1. Custom solutions are available now for early implementers of the WirelessHD specification. The system is priced Rs.1.74 crore ($350,000) to Rs.2.49 crore ($500,000), depending on the specific configuration requested.
