zSeries PA/FEM (Discontinued)
Power Amplifier/Front-End Module Design Test Solution
zSeries PA/FEM is a fully-integrated hardware and software test solution combining 7.2 GHz VSG/VSA for accurate characterization and testing of the existing and the latest Wi-Fi standard 802.11ax PA/FEM components for use in mobile devices.
Covering wide measurement bandwidths useful for digital pre-distortion (DPD) testing, the FEM solution guarantees low noise and distortion necessary for validating the high efficiency Wi-Fi 6 1024QAM devices.
Meeting the exponential rise in the number of Wi-Fi capable devices in the market, the zSeries offers reduced time-to-test from weeks to hours or days.
- 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
- 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
- Support for C/C++, LabVIEW, Matlab, TCL and Python programming environments with example code and projects
