Pass the test

LitePoint Corporation and Texas Instruments Incorporated have announced the release of the LitePoint IQfact turnkey production test software.


LitePoint Corporation and Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) have announced the release of the LitePoint IQfact turnkey production test software for WiFi chipsets based on TI’s TNETW1350A and TNETW1450 WLAN system solutions. IQfact runs on the LitePoint IQview and IQflex family of advanced WLAN one-box tests.



LitePoint IQfact production test software is optimised for TI’s TNETW1350A and TNETW1450 chipset solutions targeting residential gateway applications such as DSL and Cable modems, VoIP-enabled gateways, set-top boxes and digital media adapters, as well as applications using a universal serial bus (USB) dongle form-factor.



IQfact runs on LitePoint IQview R&D and IQflex high-volume production WLAN one-box testers (OBT). The software contains a flexible operator interface, a test suite of recommended tests and test limits, and calibration and verification procedures needed for the manufacturing of WLAN solutions. The flexible operator interface is said to make for easy set-up and a dual test head option lets users share one tester between two stations.



“WLAN original design manufacturers like AboCom need simple and quick ways to insure near-faultless products,” said Eric Oh-Yang, chairman AboCom, Inc. “LitePoint solutions help us do this by allowing us to differentiate ourselves from competitors. Now we can go further by incorporating TI’s latest technology while continuing to verify reliability quickly and insuring a trouble-free customer experience at the lowest cost.”



The IQview R&D and IQflex production test products are wide bandwidth devices that incorporate the capabilities of a Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA), Vector Signal Generator (VSG), spectrum analyser, and power meter into a single high-performance instrument. LitePoint claims that one-box testers independently produce highly accurate signals ensuring consistent and reliable test results.



The demo version of LitePoint IQfact for TI production test software is available today. Registered users of LitePoint IQview and IQflex test instruments can obtain a no-cost demo version by visiting Litepoint’s web site.
