Agilent Technologies Inc. has unveiled what it claims as the industry's most automated WiMedia-based multi-band orthogonal frequency domain modulation (MB-OFDM) ultra-wideband (UWB) validation software.

This Agilent U7239A WiMedia-based MB-OFDM UWB software provides engineers with an easy way to verify that their MB-OFDM designs perform to the parameters defined by the WiMedia UWB PHY 1.2 test specification.

The software, which runs on Infiniium 90000 Series oscilloscopes, provides PHY verification and compliance measurements on radios based on WiMedia's ISO-published radio standard. The application covers the PHY transmitter testing required by the WiMedia 1.2 PHY test specification. Engineers can make measurements with the software and an Infiniium Series oscilloscope via a simple connection to the SMA input or by attaching the receiver antenna directly to the input of the oscilloscope for radiated testing.

The U7239A UWB PHY test software performs a wide range of tests required to meet the WiMedia PHY specification. It is designed to test the requirements documented in the WiMedia PHY test specifications versions 1.0 and 1.2.

Products that incorporate technologies such as Wireless USB, wireless HDMI, and high-speed Bluetooth devices that use MB-OFDM need to successfully pass a variety of compliance tests typically based on the original WiMedia specification. The U7239A software allows engineers to simply select testing to the original WiMedia specifications or testing to the Wireless USB specifications defined by the USB-IF.

The Agilent U7239A MB-OFDM PHY test software automatically configures the oscilloscope for each test and generates an informative HTML report at the end of the test. It compares the results with the specification test limit and indicates how closely the device passes or fails each test. The complex analysis runs seamlessly within the scope, which saves users time and effort compared to making and analysing measurements manually.

The Agilent U7239A compliance test application is available now at a price of Rs.3.50 lakh ($7,000).
