PXI 3030 TD-SCDMA test suite

Aeroflex offers the PXI 3030 TD-SCDMA measurement suite that provides fast and cost-effective production testing of mobile handsets and RFICs supporting all major cellular standards including 3GPP LTE, CDMA2000, 1xEVDO, GSM, W-CDMA and mobile WiMAX.

"Aeroflex is targeting the rapid growth in demand for TD-SCDMA cell phones with our new test suite," said Tim Carey, product manager, PXI 3000 series. "With the total number of Chinese cell phones exceeding 30 crore (300 million) units, the need for high-throughput test systems is vital to manufacturers who need to keep up with the growth in China."

The PXI 3000 series brings speed and modularity to the TD-SCDMA test market based on ETSI 3GPP TS 34-122. 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. Aeroflex customers 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-signalling mode. Applications include high-speed/high-throughput mobile handset testing as well as RFIC characterisation.

The Aeroflex PXI 3000 series platform lowers the cost of production testing of cell phones. The platform provides high yield and throughput, achieving dramatic improvements in test time using speed-optimising techniques such as multi-thread processing, pipelined capture, and fast-sequence tuning. In addition, Aeroflex's capability of including test coverage of multiple wireless standards in one box allows customers the flexibility to change test capability without incurring large expenses or changes in their production test processes. The TD-SCDMA measurement suite is compatible for use with any Aeroflex 3030 series RF digitiser.

PXI test solutions from Aeroflex are configured from a wide variety of modular instruments including vector signal analysers, vector signal generators, RF conditioning modules, PXI chassis/controllers, and software options. TD-SCDMA test solutions are available to ship within four to six weeks. Software upgrades to existing systems are available immediately as software retrofits.
