zSeries PA/FEM

zSeries PA/FEM is a complete fully-integrated hardware and software test solution required for the characterization and testing of the latest generation of PA/FEM components for use in mobile devices.

zSeries PA/FEM can perform compliance testing for existing and emerging wireless standards including the next-gen Wi-Fi standard 802.11ax 1024QAM. Time-to-test can be reduced from weeks to hours or days thanks to the advanced hardware and software integration of zSeries PA/FEM.

Key Specifications

  • Best-in-industry residual EVM performance: <-50dB, required for 802.11ax PA/FEM tests
  • Very wide instantaneous bandwidth (>500 MHz) for broadband testing
  • 20 GHz spectrum analyzer option for harmonic and spurious emission testing

Fully Integrated Configuration

  • Lab-in-a-Box configuration
  • Seamless hardware and software enhancements using a modular PXIe platform
  • Reduce time-to-test from weeks to hours or days with LitePoint’s zSeries PA/FEM apps and highly integrated solutions
  • Test apps to setup complex tests for PA/FEM characterization and design verification without code

Advanced Software Integration Tools & Support

  • Graphical User Interfaces (GUI) for real-time “bench-top” interactive operation for RF designers and field application engineers
    • Ease test debugging and manual testing duties
  • Digital Pre-Distortion (DPD) capabilities for rapid PA linearity characterization
  • Envelope Tracking characterization measurements for power efficiency maximization
  • Support for programming environments: C/C++, LabVIEW, Matlab, TCL and Python with example code and projects

All solutions are adaptable and re-configurable to provide you with the greatest flexibility for your testing requirements.
