Promising to save development time and increase speed to market, Agilent Technologies and Lime Microsystems offer a custom pairing of test equipment, transceiver technology, and control software that constitutes a new method for testing and evaluating advanced wireless systems. The Lime Microsystems evaluation platform, which includes the LMS6002D flexible transceiver 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, users can 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 an Agilent Spectrum Analyzer or wideband oscilloscope. This setup is supported by a comprehensive set of Agilent software tools including the popular 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.
