Collaboration on Wi-Fi 6E Production Test

RS CMP18012 January 2022 - Rohde & Schwarz is joining forces with integrated chipset vendor, MediaTek, to deliver one of the first production test solutions for Wi-Fi 6E devices. The integration of the new R&S CMP180 radio communication test platform from Rohde & Schwarz into MediaTek’s ATE tool offers significant benefits to MediaTek’s customers bringing their latest Wi-Fi technologies on the market.

The R&S CMP180 radio communication test platform is designed to manage multiple parallel signals for both multiple devices and MIMO transmission methods, providing maximum measurement speed at frequencies up to 8 GHz. The analyzer/generator single-box tester covers wireless standards including Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7 and 5G NR at FR1 frequencies, plus a wide range of legacy technologies.

Through the close cooperation and team work, the R&S CMP180 is now qualified for Wi-Fi production testing with MediaTek’s automatic production test tool (META & Multi ATE). MediaTek’s customers using the latest MediaTek mobile platforms with cutting-edge wireless technologies can now smoothly integrate the R&S CMP180 in their production lines.

Dr. Yenchi Lee, Deputy General Manager of MediaTek’s Wireless Communications Business Unit at MediaTek said: “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.”

Wi-Fi 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, and low latency for applications like working, schooling, gaming, streaming and more.

In January 2021, MediaTek announced its Wi-Fi 6E platforms for Access Points and client-side devices have been selected for the Wi-Fi Alliance Wi-Fi 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 Wi-Fi Alliance to ensure MediaTek’s connectivity portfolio supports the latest features of its standards.

Alexander Pabst, Vice President Market Segment Wireless Communications at Rohde & Schwarz said: “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.”
