Multi-radio wireless connectivity system for rapid simultaneous functional testing
July 13, 2012 // Nick Flaherty
Spirent Communications in Paignton, UK, has launched a new test system to address functional testing of wireless devices on manufacturing lines and in service and repair centres.
The GSS5300 has been developed for rapid simultaneous functional testing of up to 2 wireless-enabled devices with multiple RF interfaces, including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, FM and NFC. It also operates with widely-used Spirent GNSS constellation simulators to test GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, and QZSS technology.
Functional testing of a wireless device is a rapid test method for the manufacturing line, ensuring a device has been correctly assembled and will operate in real world conditions. Spirent’s GSS5300 provides repeatable testing against full signaling conditions, with the ability to determine RF transmitter/receiver operation. By following a parallel testing approach, customers can test multi-radio devices in shorter times, greatly improving manufacturing line throughput.
“We expect the GSS5300 system to be deployed on the manufacturing lines of the future to support the ever growing complexity of wireless devices,” said John Pottle, marketing director of Spirent’s positioning technology business. “Spirent’s GSS5300 provides a new approach, replacing the existing parametric method that is becoming over-complex, slow and outdated for testing wireless connectivity technologies.”
Spirent’s GSS5300 multi-radio platform can be used with Spirent’s new GSS6300M multi-GNSS simulator, which enables testing of fundamental GNSS receiver functionality including time to first fix, sensitivity and accuracy on the manufacturing line.
