Test Cellular and Connectivity Standards with One System

Test system engineers constantly manage change requests from in-flux designs, address a large mix of I/O to cover requirements, and (hopefully) automate the final test system to improve productivity, all while keeping the design moving through to production. 


Focus more on design test challenges and less on test system challenges with a wireless test platform that includes:


  • An open, software-centric approach to system design for the customization and automation of large, mixed-I/O test systems

  • Reliable and repeatable verification for adherence to regulatory or internal compliance standards

  • Long-term system maintenance so updates to old designs can be validated with less rework

  • A software defined radio (SDR) architecture with RF instrument class performance to test a variety of cellular and wireless standards in a smaller footprint 

  • Integrated processing, timing, and synchronization for smaller benchtop footprint

Wireless Standards Validation Test System for Connected Electronics

  • Build a test system with a smaller footprint using PXI systems that combine modular instrumentation and signal I/O with timing and synchronization in a single chassis.

  • Test a variety of cellular and connectivity standards with the PXI Vector Signal Transceiver (VST), which combines an SDR architecture with RF instrument class performance in a single PXI module.

  • Build, deploy, and automate your test system with TestStand test management software.

  • Control third-party instruments, program NI measurement hardware, and generate custom test reports with LabVIEW systems engineering software.

  • Combine COTS convenience with DIY flexibility with the configuration-based workflows of NI’s application software for wireless design and test.

Solution Advantages

"Using the software-designed PXI Vector Signal Transceiver and the [WLAN Test Toolkit], we improved test speeds by more than 200 times compared to traditional rack-and-stack instruments while significantly improving test coverage."

–Doug Johnson, Qualcomm Atheros
