AGILENT Technologies has introduced an integrated WLAN manufacturing functional test system, which enables efficient testing of WLAN 802.11a/b/g modules, helps speed time to market and improves manufacturing yield.
The Agilent GS-8300 is an integrated manufacturing test system that enables WLAN chipset and reference design manufacturers to spend less time developing and supporting functional test systems, and more time focusing on product development.
In addition, automated WLAN tests from the Agilent GS-8300 provide feedback on manufacturing quality to help improve yields.
The GS-8300 uses Agilent's one-box tester, which combines the source and analyser in one box, to enable accurate, reliable functional test measurements without the need for a golden unit inside the test rack to set measurement standards.
The ability of the Agilent GS-8300 to run two fixtures at the same time helps manufacturers increase throughput and improve asset utilisation. The Agilent GS-8300 also offers several options for fixtures that provide high-quality RF isolation, multiple test-step capabilities, and multi-interface PCI extensions.
Low-cost shielded fixtures, such as the WLAN 6GHz fixtures, provide good shielding, help ensure reliable and repeatable measurements, and support rapid line changeover with flexible nest designs.
Agilent's flexible, easy-to-use wireless test manager interface software supports multiple wireless formats to help improve testing efficiency.
Agilent provides consultation services to help with manufacturing functions, including transferring capacity to new manufacturing sites, optimising manufacturing line processes, installation, training and RF services. Agilent provides a single point of contact so that customers can quickly access the services they need.
