Ensuring performance of connected home electronic products

May 18, 2020
The number of IoT devices is growing. So is the number of coexistence issues. Ensure the correct performance of connected home appliances with the help of the R&S®CMW500 radio communication tester and an R&S®SMW200A vector signal generator.

Your challenge: Testing coexistence and user experience to ensure high quality of service in real-world use, and ensuring security and product compliance for risk free market introduction. The intended use case for the device under test (DUT) needs to be defined in order to identify the baseline EM environment and the corresponding functional performance of the wanted communications system. Based on the information, it is possible to define the worst-case RF scenario and later recreate it for testing.
