October 16, 2009 | Aeroflex announced today it will deliver a nonsignaling PXI solution customized for RF production line test of Infineonâ€™s secondgeneration ultra low-cost mobile phone platform. The solution, based on the Aeroflex PXI 3000 Series, will test Infineonâ€™s second-generation ultra low-cost chipset (XGOLD â„¢101).
The primary challenges facing mobile phone handset manufacturers today are getting to market first, lowering the cost of manufacturing test and optimizing valuable engineering resources. Aeroflexâ€™s PXI accelerates the development of a customized RF test solution to meet these needs.
The key advantage of Aeroflexâ€™s PXI solution is its flexibility, which contributes to lower test costs and faster test times. The PXI 3000 Series is able to test many more standards [such WLAN, CMA2000/1xEVDO, WiMAX, UMTS, GSM/EDGE, Bluetooth and LTE] than previous â€œone-box solutionsâ€ could. This is important because todayâ€™s design engineers and manufacturers are developing sophisticated cell phones that require cellular handset developers to test one device for compliance with many, if not all, of these standards. With the PXI 3000 Series, the same flexible high-performance
high-speed hardware tests all the 2G, 3G and 4G and wireless data standards. Furthermore, the user can add software modules to customize the solution to meet their current and future RF testing needs.
The PXI 3000 Series achieves up to five times higher throughput than conventional instrumentation and is leading the market in terms of test speed. Its performance is the result of very fast responding hardware and the use of multi-core processors. Multi-core processing through the inherently open software architecture helps the engineer to perform multiple simultaneous measurements and multi-device testing.
â€œOur customers include the leading global mobile handset manufacturers and their supply chains. Their loyalty, as well as our strong partnerships with chipset manufacturers, demonstrate Aeroflexâ€™s consistent track record of meeting and
exceeding the most stringent market requirements,â€ said Bill Burrows, business development manager, Aeroflex. â€œOur extensive expertise in design and manufacturing of RF systems is reflected in every PXI module, providing the highest levels of performance, accuracy, reliability and repeatability, which translates to our customers and partners as confidence in their test results.â€
