AceAxis, a leading developer of wireless technology, today announced that it has launched the Advanced Radio Tester (ART), a one-box tester designed to meet the needs of manufacturing test for cellular infrastructure.
The AceAxis Advanced Radio Tester incorporates all the necessary RF and baseband functionality for fast, repeatable and traceable testing within a single 1U box, and has been designed to directly address the challenge of reducing manufacturing CAPEX and OPEX costs.
Operating over a frequency range of 700MHz to 2.7GHz with LTE signal bandwidths of 5MHz, 10MHz, and 20MHz, the Advanced Radio Tester incorporates RF functionality usually found only in discrete test equipment such as signal generators, spectrum analysers and network analysers. It supports OFDM and OFDMA modulation schemes with QPSK, 16QAM and 64QAM, in both TDD and FDD modes. Operating under Windows 7 (32-bit), programs can be developed in NI LabVIEW, Visual Basic and Visual C.
“With fast test times and set-up times, the Advanced Radio Tester can simplify ramp-up and enhance product throughput,” said Steve Cooper, CEO of AceAxis. “A fully capable test solution in a single compact box, the ART platform is complemented by a range of supporting software that enables rapid integration into the test environment.”
