Aeroflex cdma2000/1xEV-DO Measurement Suite for PXI 3000 Series now supports 1xEV-DO Rev B for production testing of mobile terminals
Aeroflex announced today that the PXI 3030 cdma2000/1xEV-DO Measurement Suite now supports Revision B (Rev B) of the standard, at no additional cost to current licensees. This latest upgrade extends the capabilities of the Aeroflex PXI 3000 Series test system to include fast and cost-effective production testing of mobile handsets, components, and chipsets to the new standard revision.The
“We think it is a significant benefit to Aeroflex PXI 3000 customers that we provide ongoing software updates free of charge to current licensees of the cdma2000/1xEV-DO Measurement Suite, while our competitors customarily charge for supporting each new iteration of the standard,” commented Tim Carey, product manager, PXI 3000 Series at Aeroflex Test Solutions. “One single licence covers cdma2000, 1xEV-DO Rev 0, A and B.”
“The support for Rev B has been developed initially to support the indigenous Chinese handset market, where it is firmly established on the network standards roadmap,” he added. “But with operators widely reported as committed to adopting Rev B including KDDI, China Telecom, LG Telecom, PTCL, and INWI, we have identified that North American manufacturers of both handsets and RFICs will also soon be needing production test facilities for this standard.”
The modularity and software-defined functionality of the PXI 3000 Series renders the test system both flexible and future-proof. The system can be individually configured by the customer as required and additional standards can be added when necessary.
