Tektronix has announced that its UWB WiMedia compliance test solution has been selected by Testronic Laboratories, a leading test and certification center, to provide Wireless USB interoperability testing.
With the growth in high-speed communications technologies in the digital age, there is an increasing need to test products to ensure their compliance and compatibility with industry standards. Testronic Labs provides leading-edge test services for these technologies, and the Tektronix UWB WiMedia compliance test solution - comprising the AWG7000 arbitrary waveform generator, the TDS6154C ultra high performance oscilloscope and UWB spectral analysis software - provides state-of-the-art support for its activities.

Testronic Labs became accredited as an Independent Test Lab for testing and certification of Wireless Universal Serial Bus (W-USB) products by The USB Implementers Forum in July this year (www.testroniclaboratories.com). Using the Tektronix UWB WiMedia test solution, it is able to provide compliance testing and certification services for W-USB devices to its customers, allowing them to market products based on the Wireless USB specifications that are proven to interoperate with other certified products. When a product has achieved Wireless USB certification, it can bear the Wireless USB logo on the product and packaging, signifying to the consumer that the product has been tested and proven to interoperate with other certified W-USB products.

“UWB WiMedia test requirements are some of the most complex among current wideband RF standards,” said Johan Craeybeckx, chief technology officer at Testronic Labs. “Tektronix UWB testing and design tools - its fastest-in-the-industry real-time oscilloscopes and signal sources, along with UWB application software – provide easy set up of the W-USB compliance tests in the signal generation software allowing for quick, repeatable and reliable testing.”

Testronic Labs are the first test laboratory in Europe to be accredited to provide compliance testing and certification services for W-USB products and we are delighted that they chose our products to achieve this capability, said Lynne Camp, vice president, Performance Products, Tektronix. Tektronix is committed to delivering industry-leading RF test solutions with unequalled measurement accuracy and test flexibility that enable test houses like Testronic Labs and their customers to achieve certification with the latest compliance test requirements.

Features of the UWB WiMedia test solution make it ideally suited to Wireless USB interoperability testing, such as user defined IF frequency, parameter definition at Packet Group level, visual indication of hopping patterns, support for standard data rates or user defined MAC-Header, amongst others.

The Tektronix UWB WiMedia compliance test solution for Wireless USB interoperability testing comprises the AWG7000 arbitrary waveform generator, ultra-high performance oscilloscopes, such as DSA70000 real time oscilloscopes, matching probes, and UWB spectral analysis software.
