LitePoint announced the IQxel-MXTM test system, which handles the high-performance requirements of the new Wi-Fi 7, IEEE 802.11be standard.

Wi-Fi 7 enables extremely high throughput, which operates at close to 5x the maximum throughput of Wi-Fi 6, and provides very low latency. Combining these capabilities with the new multi-link modes, Wi-Fi 7 will power the future of connectivity for the most demanding wireless applications. 

“The leap forward in data rates in Wi-Fi 7 will enable a new generation of applications such as AR, VR, eXtended reality, cloud gaming and cloud computing,” said Eve Danel, senior product marketing manager. “Our decades of experience testing Wi-Fi has allowed us to build a test system that R&D teams can use to ensure the next generation of Wi-Fi applications deliver on the promise of a high-speed, low latency and highly reliable experience.” 

Technical Details: IQxel-MX

The foundation of Wi-Fi 7 lies in the device’s PHY performance with operation in all three Wi-Fi bands (2.4, 5 and 6 GHz), extra-wide 320 MHz channels, 4K QAM modulation, up to 16 MIMO streams, and multi-link operation (MLO). 

The IQxel-MX is a fully integrated RF PHY test solution with signal generation and analysis combined in a single tester, supporting a continuous frequency range from 400 MHz to 7.3 GHz. With an analysis bandwidth of 320 MHz and best-in-class residual error vector magnitude floor. The unique signal combination architecture supports MLO without external hardware. The IQxel-MX addresses the requirements of the IEEE 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E) and IEEE 802.11 legacy specifications, as well as a full range of connectivity standards (Bluetooth 5.x, Zigbee, Z-Wave). 

For faster time to market, turnkey IQfact+TM software solutions offer customized testing of leading chipsets and enable thorough design verification and rapid volume manufacturing with minimal engineering effort.

The IQxel-MX is now available.
