XRONET Chooses Azimuth Systems' ACE™ 400WB Channel Emulator For Mobile
Automated Test Solution Allows Comprehensive WiMAX Performance Testing
of Advanced Mobile SoC Technology
ACTON, MA – September 10, 2007
– Azimuth Systems, Inc., a leading provider of wireless engineering
test equipment, today announced that XRONet has selected Azimuth’s ACE™
400WB WiMAX channel emulator for comprehensive performance testing of
its SoC (system on a chip) product based on the IEEE 802.16e specification.
As the industry’s first next-generation WiMAX channel emulator, the
ACE 400WB provides sophisticated channel modeling capabilities to enable
real-time testing of MIMO devices and help speed the development of
WiMAX chipsets, clients and infrastructure devices.
semiconductor company based in Korea, XRONet develops next-generation
mobile SoC technology with ultra-low power circuit technologies and
advanced wireless communication technologies. XRONet will use the ACE
400WB to accurately emulate multipath characteristics with channel correlation
to determine the effect of real-world multi-channel RF interactions
and validate the performance of their MIMO-based WiMAX products. The
ACE 400WB also provides XRONet with the ability to test and debug MIMO
algorithms, optimize the performance of WiMAX devices in MIMO and SISO
environments and run competitive performance benchmark tests.
“XRONet is focused on developing cutting-edge wireless technology
enabling data, voice and video everywhere,” said Will Kim, CTO of XRONet.
“By dramatically streamlining our development process, the ACE 400WB
will help us ensure the continued creation of the world’s most optimized
solutions for mobile WiMAX and WiBro terminals.”
the ground up as a MIMO test solution, Azimuth’s ACE 400WB is purpose-built
for testing the key technology differentiators of mobile WiMAX. Mobility,
high throughput and extended range are dependent on the multipath environment
for MIMO spatial streaming and advanced antenna techniques, and Azimuth’s
bi-directional and reciprocal channel modeling provides this real-world
scenario in a lab.
“XRONet’s selection of the ACE 400WB to automate
their WiMAX testing is another significant success story for Azimuth,”
said Graham Celine, senior director of marketing at Azimuth Systems.
“By upgrading their testing to fully dynamic and true MIMO testing,
the advanced signal processing technology of the ACE 400WB will provide
XRONet with accurate, repeatable and fast results in a laboratory environment
– enabling the delivery of higher performance SoC products.”

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling
2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed
formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit
design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at
the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps
while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got
Mail" when a new message arrived...
