The integration of the new R&S CMP180 radio communication test platform into MediaTek’s ATE production test tool offers significant benefits to system makers with new WiFi6E devices.

The R&S CMP180 is designed to manage multiple parallel signals for both multiple devices and MIMO transmission methods, providing maximum measurement speed at frequencies up to 8GHz. The analyzer/generator single-box tester covers wireless standards including WiFi 6E, WiFi 7 and 5G NR at FR1 frequencies as well as legacy technologies.

WiFi 6E devices can now take advantage of the 6 GHz band to the full power of Wi-Fi 6 by making use of 160 MHz channels in a widely uncongested band. They are able to deliver multi-gigabit connection speed, but require more extensive testing in production. By working with MediaTek, the CMP180 is now qualified for WiFi production testing with the META & Multi ATE production test systems.

“Our ongoing close collaboration with Rohde & Schwarz has now enabled MediaTek customers to speed up development and verification of their products using the R&S CMP180 platform alongside devices under test (DUT) provided by MediaTek,” asid Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit at MediaTek.

In January 2021, MediaTek announced its WiFi 6E platforms for Access Points and client-side devices have been selected for the WiFi Alliance WiFi 6E Certification Program. The company offers both MT7915-AP-AX (Access Point) and MT7915-STA-AX (client-side) as testbed devices. MediaTek continues to work closely with the WiFi Alliance to ensure MediaTek’s connectivity portfolio supports the latest features of its standards.

“We are delighted to be working with MediaTek – a leader in highly integrated chipset solutions for Wi-Fi – on a dedicated product test solution. Thanks to its excellent RF parameters and high output power, test engineers can use the R&S CMP180 throughout the entire development phase, from engineering validation tests right through to production,” said Alexander Pabst, Vice President Market Segment Wireless Communications at Rohde & Schwarz.
