Original Press Release:
GaGe Announces New NEXUS 802.11 WiFi Testing Systems
Lockport, IL (October 30, 2006) - GaGe, worldwide leader in high-performance data acquisition solutions, has introduced new low-priced 802.11 WiFi Testing Systems. The NEXUS turn-key Wireless Testing Systems provide all signal generation/analysis hardware and software required for complete testing of 802.11 a, b, g, j, and n wireless devices.
IEEE 802.11, also known as the WiFi standard, denotes a set of modulation standards developed for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLAN). Design, test and manufacturing engineers have previously had difficulty finding a low-priced testing solution for 802.11 a, b, g, j, and n devices. To meet this requirement, GaGe has developed the NEXUS 802.11 WiFi Testing Systems - a family of turn-key systems that are built upon a foundation of GaGe CompuGen and CompuScope hardware (arbitrary waveform generator and digitizer cards) and software technology, combined with powerful WLAN generation and analysis application software.
GaGe NEXUS 802.11 WiFi Testing Systems are capable of generating complex 802.11 testing signals for up-conversion and transmission as well as acquiring and analyzing received and down-converted 802.11 signals. NEXUS systems can provide an impressive Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) measurement of -45 dB. Compared to the best available transmit/receive wireless devices that typically provide an EVM of -35 dB, GaGe's NEXUS systems therefore provide base performance that is at least 10 dB better than the device under test.
Another important benefit of the NEXUS system is true simultaneous conversion clocking and triggering on all channels. This benefit is a direct result of GaGe's Master/Slave Multi-CompuScope digitizer architecture. Simultaneous timing on multiple channels gives the NEXUS a fundamental advantage for 802.11n Multiple-In/Multiple-Out (MIMO) architectures, where multiple transmitter and receiver antennas are used. Other manufacturers of 802.11 test systems suggest that their single-antenna systems may be combined and used in MIMO architectures, but closer examination often reveals that synchronization between separate channels is minimal or non-existent.
GaGe NEXUS WiFi testing systems are available to order immediately with a projected lead-time of 6-8 weeks. Pricing starts at $29,995.00 USD for the US market.
