AGILENT Technologies has announced the availability of its next-generation wireless communications test set platform for calibrating mobile phones in high-volume manufacturing.
The Agilent E6601A is an integrated test system in one box. It features a built-in open Windows XP PC, which allows test programs to be developed, downloaded and executed directly in the system -- eliminating the test-system PC and saving system space and cost.
With a new measurement architecture designed for high-speed measurements and industry-leading accuracy, repeatability and measurement integrity, the Agilent E6601A significantly lowers the cost of mobile-phone manufacturing test.
A key feature is its speed -- up to 30 percent faster than other solutions. New calibration applications for GSM/GPRS/EGPRS, WCDMA and HSDPA provide scalable, multi-format capability with only a software upgrade.
An optional Fast Device Tune measurement provides breakthrough test-time improvements for mobile-phone calibration, up to 10x faster than traditional methods.
Agilent's E6601A also has flexible licensing options that enable users to effectively manage test assets and reduce capital equipment by purchasing the licensing option best suited to their manufacturing needs.
Cost-effective term licences make it easy to quickly respond to short-term needs for increased test capacity, while transportable licences allow users to quickly rebalance test capacity. Flexible calibration application licences are available for GSM/GPRS/EGPRS, WCDMA, HSDPA and Fast Device Tune measurements.
