Agilent and Lime cooperate on wireless test

Agilent Technologies Inc. and Lime Microsystems have been working on linking test equipment, transceiver technology and control software to produce a novel method for testing and evaluating advanced wireless systems.

The Lime Microsystems (Guildford, UK) evaluation platform and associated control software allows users to adjust the transceiver’s uplink and downlink frequencies from 300 MHz to 3.8 GHz, with no gaps, and to set the on-chip channel filters to accommodate all cellular standards.

With Agilent test equipment and the transceiver from Lime it should be possible to generate digital IQ signals using a pattern generator, convert these signals to RF, and analyze the RF signals with Agilent’s vector signal analyzer software on its spectrum analyzer or wideband oscilloscope.

This setup is supported by a set of Agilent software tools (including Signal Studio), coupled with the Lime user interface, for optimizing the RF parameters on a given standard or frequency band, providing a simple and fast method for configuring the Lime transceiver.
