Broadcom Taps LitePoint for Verification of New Wi-Fi 7 Chipsets

May 26, 2022
LitePoint's IQxel-MX platform supports Wi-Fi 7's Multi-Link Operation functionality as well as high-order MIMO testing.

To ensure performance and accelerate verification of access points based on its new Wi-Fi 7 chips, Broadcom has chosen LitePoint's IQxel-MX test platform, which enables comprehensive validation of key new Wi-Fi 7 access point and client features. The validation and verification processes are critical to ensuring high-speed and low-latency communications in support of next-generation applications such as augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

For residential and enterprise users, the nascent Wi-Fi 7 (IEEE 802.11be) standard offers higher throughput, reduced latency, and higher reliability. Many key enhancements to the standard make those features possible, including 4096-QAM modulation, extra-wide 320-MHz channels, and flexibility to operate in all three frequency bands.

Multi-Link Operation (MLO) further increases Wi-Fi’s capability to operate in high-density congested environments. It allows access points to schedule transmissions on multiple links to optimize bandwidth, latency, and range.

The IQxel-MX is optimized to validate a device’s wireless signal quality and optimal operation over multiple links and multiple bands. Thus, it's suited for accelerated development of next-generation Wi-Fi access points that utilize Broadcom’s Wi-Fi 7 chipsets.

LitePoint's IQxel-MX is a fully integrated RF PHY test solution with signal generation and analysis combined in a single tester, supporting a continuous frequency range from 400 MHz to 7.3 GHz. The platform offers an analysis bandwidth of 320 MHz and a very low residual error-vector-magnitude (EVM) floor. Its signal-combination architecture supports MLO without external hardware as well as high-order MIMO testing.

The IQxel-MX addresses the requirements of the IEEE 802.11be (Wi-Fi 7), 802.11ax (Wi-Fi 6, Wi-Fi 6E), and IEEE 802.11 legacy specifications, as well as a full range of connectivity standards (Bluetooth 5.x, Zigbee, Z-Wave).
