LitePoint Corp.'s Zigbee software package is said to provide test support for Zigbee 802.15.4-based products and can be used with existing LitePoint IQview and IQflex Test Solutions. With the new solution, production test programs for the manufacturing floor can now be developed, allowing Zigbee products to be tested by one-box test instruments and manufacturing costs to be reduced.

The Zigbee software package expands Zigbee test capability to the owners of IQview and IQflex 802.11a/b/g/n one-box testers. IQview/IQflex has integrated vector signal analyzer and vector signal generator (VSG) for faster test times. When installed, the Zigbee software package is automatically recognized by the IQview/IQflex test analysis software and the software integrates seamlessly into the test environment, adding Zigbee test capability for both R&D and manufacturing applications.

Zigbee DUT test commands are made through the chip vendor's test control interface for faster set-up times. Moreover, the unique LitePoint capture-once-measure-all hardware implementation allows full transmitter and receiver testing with very few signal captures for the fastest test times.

Zigbee software demodulates and displays critical transmitter measurements like EVM and carrier frequency offset with the same ease and test time as the basic power and spectrum measurements. For receiver testing IQview/IQflex internal VSG can send packets to the DUT and the IQfact software calculates packet error rate.

The LitePoint Zigbee software package is available now. Pricing starts at $2,200. The device is licensed on a per-use basis with site license packages available.
