The MT8860C is an integrated one-box test set dedicated to testing 802.11 WLAN devices. It provides a high-speed measurement solution that is suitable for both production testing and design proving.
The MT8860C replaces existing test systems that typically require power meters, spectrum analyzers, and Gold Radios with external attenuators. The result is a test instrument with faster integration into production, offers a universal solution for all WLAN chip sets, and is simpler to maintain and calibrate. The MT8860C also reduces test system costs, increases production throughput, and delivers the most flexible WLAN testing available.
The MT8860C has two modes of operation: Network and Direct. The "Network" mode uses standard WLAN signaling and can be used for testing both the transmitter and receiver of DUTs. In "Direct" mode, the MT8860C tests DUT receivers by generating and transmitting WLAN packets, and tests DUT transmitters with its built-in transmitter analyzer. In Direct mode, the DUT must be controlled by the test mode software utility from the silicon supplier. The user interface is implemented through the supplied LANLook software package. LANLook runs on a standard PC and uses a conventional Windows®, based interface for both instrument configuration and results displays in clear numerical and graphical formats. LANLook communicates with the MT8860C through a GPIB interface.
