Rohde and Schwarz (R&S) and Sequans Communications announced a partnership that aims to speed up the development of mobile Wimax devices.
The partnership will pair the R&S CMW270 Wimax Communication Tester mobile Wimax chip designs from Sequans.
Originally, RF alignment and verification procedures of mobile Wimax end-user devices were developed for initial low-volume production, thus leaving a huge potential for speed optimization.
The R&S CMW270 volume manufacturers to exactly adapt their test strategy to the individual quality requirements of their product. The range may span from simplified RF alignment to complete signaling link verification.
In combination with the general purpose RF functionality, the R&S CMW270 is also ready for transmit power and receive signal strength indication calibration of complementary technologies like WLAN or Bluetooth.
The two companies are doing live demos at the ongoing Wimax Expo in Taipei.
