Tektronix Offers Ultra-Wideband (UWB) WiMedia Test Expertise

Tektronix is introducing Ultra-Wideband (UWB) WiMedia PHY test methodologies to help developer capture, and analyze high speed RF signals. The company also released a new version of UWB Analysis software for its DSA/DPO70000 series oscilloscopes. The new WiMedia Methods of Implementation (MOI) offers a step-by-step test methodology for the new Ultra-Wideband (UWB) WiMedia PHY Test Specification Version 1.2 release.

For UWB WiMedia radios using MB-OFDM technology for Certified Wireless USB, next generation Bluetooth, WiNet and Wireless FireWire (IEEE1394) applications, Tektronix UWB Analysis software reads the digital information from the RF waveform to determine the demodulation method on a packet-by-packet basis. By reading the digital information from the RF waveforms, UWB Analysis automatically determines which demodulation method is used, data rates, time frequency coding, the pass/fail test limits, and constellation type that is then displayed. Detection and analysis is done on each packet from the RF content, greatly simplifying setup and speeding analysis and compliance tests.
