Tektronix Inc., a worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, announced it has created the world’s first Methods of Implementation (MOI) for the new Ultra-wideband (UWB) WiMedia PHY Test Specification Version 1.2 and released a new version of UWB Analysis software for DSA/DPO70000 series oscilloscopes that provides additional measurements for UWB WiMedia 1.2 www.tek.com/wimedia.

With the new WiMedia PHY Test Specification Version 1.2 adding more receiver testing, the Tektronix AWG7102 Arbitrary Waveform Generator and RFXpress signal creation software are the best choices for engineers working with v1.0 and v1.2 and planning for v1.5.

“Customers working with UWB WiMedia need simplified test methodologies and the ability to trigger, capture and analyze high speed RF signals,” said Brian Reich, vice president, Performance Scopes Product Line, Tektronix. “With the new MOI providing step-by-step instructions to perform 1.2 specification compliance testing and the latest UWB analysis software, Tektronix provides customers the most capable toolset for debugging and analyzing complex UWB waveforms while running on the industries’ highest performance hardware. No other combination of software and hardware in the market is able to match Tektronix for UWB WiMedia analysis and performance.”
