Agilent Technologies, Inc. announces an enhancement to its vector signal analyzer (VSA), signal studio and mobile WiMAX test Set measurement products to facilitate testing of the WiMAX Forum's Wave 2 system profiles. With their ability to test multiple input multiple output (MIMO) and other Wave 2 profile functionality, the systems provide up-to-date tools for engineers who require signal analysis, signal generation and end-to-end functional testing of mobile WiMAX. The 89601A VSA and N7615B signal studio measurement units have testing capabilities that support physical (PHY) layer signal generation and analysis for Wave 2 system profiles. The signal studio also provides MIMO fading embedded in a waveform. This capability enables testing of MIMO receivers without the added expense of fading hardware or software.
