Agilent Technologies and Lime Microsystems has jointly launched a custom pairing of test equipment, transceiver technology and control software which constitutes a new method for testing and evaluating advanced wireless systems.


The evaluation platform consist of a suite of test equipment and software which saves development time and cuts optimization cycles, helping to speed new products to market.

''Combining the transceiver platform from Lime Microsystems with our suite of test equipment has given designers a comprehensive, cost-effective method for design validation, even for multi-standard radios,'' said Robert Drollinger, marketing manager at Agilent.

''The LMS6002D flexible transceiver from Lime Microsystems is gaining traction in a wide variety of market sectors, including cellular small cells, software defined radios, public safety and land mobile radios,'' said Dale Wilson, director of marketing at Lime Microsystems.

The Lime Microsystems' evaluation platform and associated control software allows users to adjust the transceiver’s uplink and downlink frequencies from 300 MHz to 3.8 GHz, while with Agilent test equipment and the transceiver from Lime, customers can generate digital IQ signals using a pattern generator and then can convert these signals to RF.
