Rohde & Schwarz Announces Manufacturing Test License Agreement With Broadcom
Rohde & Schwarz to provide optimized test solutions for the development and production of WLAN and Bluetooth® devices.
Rohde & Schwarz recently announced it has entered into a Manufacturing Test License (MTL) agreement with Broadcom Corporation. Through the MTL agreement, Rohde & Schwarz can provide certified verification test solutions to Broadcom WLAN and Bluetooth® customers.
The Broadcom Manufacturing Test License agreement is a license and validation program that gives test equipment vendors access to Broadcom WLAN and Bluetooth® software tools and Broadcom technical support resources. The program is designed to provide Broadcom OEM customers with validated test systems that reduce time-to-market and improve manufacturing efficiency and product quality.
The tried and tested R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz plays a key role in these systems. The multistandard platform offers testing capabilities for consumer electronics equipment based on common wireless communications standards including LTE, WCDMA, GSM, CDMA2000® and TD-SCDMA, and is capable of testing WLAN and Bluetooth® wireless connectivity standards and positioning standards such as GPS. The R&S CMWrun sequencer software controls the platform with turnkey test cases. Users can also adapt the flexible solution to their own needs and test environments.
As a result of the MTL agreement, Broadcom customers gain access to the global Rohde & Schwarz service and support network.
