Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced four new wireless connectivity test products for wireless LAN (WLAN), Bluetooth, ultra-wide band (UWB) and Wi-Max devices.

New capabilities simplify and speed test setup and offer improved performance to reduce design cycles and the cost of manufacturing wireless devices.

“Differentiating among the profusion of current and emerging standards for wireless networking is challenging,” said Pat Byrne, general manager and vice president of Agilent’s RF and MW Communications business unit.

The products, he added, are designed to help manufacturers unravel the intricacies of devices based on new and emerging technologies.

They include:

* The Agilent N4010A with WLAN option 102/103 that combines a calibrated vector signal generator and wide bandwidth signal analyzer into a single test set, eliminating the need to purchase separate WLAN and Bluetooth measurement systems;

* New options for the company’s PSA Series spectrum analyzer and PNA-L Series network analyzers, and

* Agilent’s P-Series power meters and sensors, which help R&D and manufacturing engineers develop wireless communications, networking and aerospace and defense products.

"The last 100 years were all about wiring the world to reap the benefits of rapidly evolving communication technologies," the company said. "Today, however, technology is letting us pull the plugs and still stay connected."
