The WTS combines PXI hardware with a single platform for multi-standard, multi-DUT and multi-port testing. When used with flexible test sequencing software such as the TestStand Wireless Test Module, manufacturers can improve instrument utilization when testing multiple devices in parallel. The WTS can integrate into a manufacturing line with ready-to-run test sequences for devices that use chipsets from suppliers as well as integrated DUT and remote automation control. With these features, customers are seeing considerable efficiency gains from their radio frequency (RF) test equipment and further reducing their cost of test. With support for wireless standards from LTE Advanced to 802.11ac to Bluetooth Low Energy, the WTS is designed for manufacturing WLAN access points, cellular handsets, infotainment systems, and other multi-standard devices that include cellular, wireless connectivity, and navigation standards.
