Streamline Test of Ultra-Wideband Wireless Devices

Wireless standards continue to evolve to keep up with pace and innovation in the industry. The Ultra-Wideband (UWB) IEEE 802.15.4z standard has bandwidths greater than 500 MHz with frequencies ranging from 3.6 GHz to 10.6 GHz. This, along with the versatile use of UWB in multiple wireless applications such as asset localization, wireless payment, and digital keys means it is both difficult to accurately test and will constantly increase in use and complexity.

A robust UWB test solution needs to:


  • Account for wideband capabilities greater than 500 MHz  
  • Ensure full frequency coverage from 3 GHz to 10 GHz 
  • Allow for coexistence of UWB, WLAN, and Bluetooth standards 
  • Incorporate precision ranging measurements with time-of-flight calculations 
  • Include Deterministic HRP Frame Generation for thorough characterization
