What Are Your RF Challenges?
Many of our customers have considerable issues ensuring optimum RF performance and validating new functionality due to these common problems:
- Higher and higher frequencies
- More RF standards yet fewer test resources
- Increased takt time and slower throughput
- Capturing large instantaneous bandwidths
- Streaming large amounts of RF data
A Tier 1 automotive supplier approached us about improving radar unit verification during production testing. In a 24/7 manufacturing environment, our turnkey, in-line solution helped them speed up takt time, verify full functionality and prevent breakdowns. They were so impressed they ordered additional systems for their operations around the world.
