Agilent Technologies Inc. and Lime Microsystems have unveiled a device that combines test equipment, transceiver technology and control software capable of testing and evaluating advanced wireless systems. According to the companies, the evaluation platform helps speed products to market by saving digital and software-defined radio designers development time and cuts optimization cycles.

16900 Series

The 16900 Series Logic Analyzer generation of digital IQ signals using a pattern generator.

The Lime Microsystems evaluation platform and associated control software allows users to adjust the transceiver's uplink and downlink frequencies from 300MHz to 3.8GHz, with no gaps, and to set the on-chip channel filters to accommodate all cellular standards. With Agilent test equipment and the transceiver from Lime, customers can generate digital IQ signals using a pattern generator, convert these signals to RF, and analyze the RF signals with Agilent's Vector Signal Analyzer software on an Agilent Spectrum Analyzer or wideband oscilloscope.

This setup is supported by a comprehensive set of Agilent software tools, coupled with the Lime user interface, for optimizing the RF parameters on a given standard or frequency band, providing a simple and fast method for configuring the Lime transceiver.

The 16900 Series Logic Analyzer is available at about $20,000.
