Wireless test solutions provider LitePoint Corp. has announced the market release of its IQmax-100 one-box manufacturing test solution. This instrument, designed to address the needs of WiMAX volume manufacturing, is part of a larger IQmax family of WiMAX test solutions. Both the IQmax-100 and IQmax-500 R&D test solutions share a common hardware platform and the same performance specifications that offer users consistency of results from development through QA.

Consistent test results
With integrated Vector signal analyser (VSA) and Vector signal generator (VSG) resources, one-box IQmax test systems promise consistent test results for all critical fixed and mobile WiMAX PHY parameters including all bandwidth and data rate options for product development, volume manufacturing and quality assurance (QA).

Accurate and repeatable, these test systems meet all current international WiMAX product test needs, are software upgradeable to address any evolving 802.16 needs, and are positioned to support future WiMAX implementations including Beamforming and MIMO. Additionally, they support optional Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities to test any WiMAX, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth or combination product. IQmax accommodates fast non-link-based test methodology that enables low-cost manufacturing with extensive test coverage that can reduce test times.

Faster product development
The IQmax-100 comes with a flexible C++ API interface to easily facilitate user automation. To jump-start initial manufacturing use ready-to-go IQfact automated manufacturing test programs that feature chip-specific production tests, test limits, chipset test driver and test executive. Developed in close cooperation with chipset suppliers, IQfact enables very fast time-to-production, reducing engineering development by as much as 6 months.

The IQmax-100 and IQmax-500 Test Systems are available today.
