LeCroy Corp. has announced the introduction of its new MB-OFDM ultra-wideband (UWB) compliance software solution for analyzing the WiMedia UWB radio platform. The new software will be incorporated into LeCroy's WaveMaster and Serial Data Analyzer (SDA) product lines to allow users to test the new wireless USB (WUSB) standard.

According to the company, the solution allows engineers to easily interpret physical layer signal details and identify problems quickly. Wireless USB connections are initially expected to replace traditional wired USB in select electronics products, such as printers, digital cameras, consumer electronics applications, and desktop and notebook PCs. Industry analysts expect there will be more than 11 million WUSB nodes in 2007 growing to over 300 million nodes by the year 2010, resulting in significant potential for WUSB. Longer term, a wide range of lower-priced consumer electronics and PCs are expected to adopt this new wireless standard.

"The MB-OFDM UWB compliance software enables LeCroy's customers to enhance time-to-market for emerging products with WiMedia UWB wireless USB connections," said Tom Reslewic, LeCroy president and CEO. "Through unique software features, we are able to provide engineers with the highest possible measurement throughput. This is critical for validation and volume production testing, and enables engineers to quickly integrate WUSB technology and functionality into products."
