LitePoint Corp. announced the availability of two new wireless test solutions for advanced MIMO wireless LAN productsthe LitePoint IQnxn MIMO Test System and the LitePoint One-Box Tester MIMO Add-On Software Package for existing LitePoint IQview and IQflex instruments.

The IQnxn MIMO Test System targets the flexibility needed for IC and product developers with an expandable array of integrated and synchronized Vector Signal Analyzers (VSA) and Vector Signal Generators (VSG) needed for today's complex wireless products. Optimized for the lowest production test cost, said the press release, the One-Box Tester MIMO Add-On Software running on either an IQview or IQflex test platform executes production test programs using advanced analysis techniques which deliver fast test times close to non-MIMO products.

The IQnxn MIMO Test System is a very flexible multiple VSA, multiple VSG instrument which comes in a 2x2 starter configuration and is expandable to a maximum 4x4 configuration using the company's IQnxn MIMO Expansion Units. All VSA and VSG resources are fully synchronized for accurate measurements. User test interfaces include two dual-band RF ports and single/differential baseband input and output ports.

The software suite supplied with the IQnxn MIMO Test System includes IQsignal for MIMO, IQnxn API and VSG Channel Simulator Panel, and is compatible with the LitePoint One-Box MIMO composite API for production test program development. Complete analysis of MIMO products is possible with this test system. Support for 802.11a/b/g is included and Bluetooth 2.0/EDR support can be added.

The company added that its One-Box Tester MIMO Add-On Software Package adds the production MIMO test capability needed on the manufacturing floor, seamlessly integrating into any existing LitePoint IQview or IQflex test instrument.

The LitePoint IQnxn MIMO Test System in the 2x2 starter configuration is priced at $147,500, while the LitePoint IQnxn MIMO Expansion Units are available for $59,000. Single user license for the LitePoint One-Box Tester MIMO Add-On Software Package is priced at $5,995. Site licenses are also available.
