Advantest Corp. has debuted a pair of test modules for high-speed, cost-efficient testing of RF ICs used in cell phones and wireless LAN devices built to meet 802.11ac and LTE-Advanced mobile communication standards. The 32-port WLS32-A module and the 16-port WLS16-A module are fully compatible with the company's T2000 platform.

The modules use vector signal generation (VSG) and vector signal analysis (VSA) software to meet the modulation challenges presented by today's most advanced portable electronics, Advantest stated. Each module offers 80MHz modulation bandwidth combined with waveform generator software and modulation analysis software for 802.11ac and LTE-Advanced protocols.

The T2000 platform has a scalable architecture that allows customers to change modules and configure the system to test virtually any semiconductor devices. This enables the tester to match both current and future testing requirements, whereas most other testers must be locked into a dedicated equipment configuration.

Shipments of Advantest's T2000 WLS32-A and WLS16-A modules are expected to begin in Q2.
