EXM Addresses Manufacturing Test for Emerging Wi-Fi Technologies (Automotive & Internet-of-Things)

With new support for WLAN 802.11p, 802.11ah, 802.11ac wave 2 measurements, and Bluetooth® 4.2 the EXM wireless test set is in sync with the latest technology evolutions in wireless communications - and it's ready to make the measurements required to efficiently manufacture today's and tomorrow's “Internet-of-Things” wireless devices.

Address test needs of high-throughput RF devices

  • Test new multi-channel LTE-Advanced uplink carrier aggregation devices
  • Test advanced “Wave 2” 802.11ac devices that incorporate 80+80 MHz SISO, 80+80 MHz 2x2 MIMO, and 1024QAM devices
  • Test the latest vehicle to vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) devices with new 802.11p measurements
  • Be ready for testing the Internet of Things (IoT) with 802.11ah
  • Test the latest Bluetooth 4.2 devices

Leverage EXM's scalability and flexibility to test today's wireless devices faster, better, and cheaper

  • Up to four independent TRX modules supporting up to 16 connections without the use of external fixtures or switching
  • 160 MHz bandwidth, up to 6 GHz frequency range, best in class ±0.2 dB power-level accuracy at 3.8 GHz, and -43 dB receiver EVM noise floor for 802.11ac
  • Independent source and analyzer on each TRX, with each TRX including four RF ports configured as two full-duplex and two half-duplex ports or four full-duplex ports
  • Broadest multi-format capability including legacy technologies as well as the latest formats and technologies such as Bluetooth 4.2, WLAN MIMO, and LTE-Advanced carrier aggregation
  • Now even more cost effective applications - one application covers an entire box (up to 4 TRX) and the new Y90xxB applications offer unlimited waveform playback for the specified technology
