R&S offers ultra-wideband test solution

Rohde & Schwarz, as a member of the FiRa Consortium, will provide a FiRa-validated, ultra-wideband (UWB) PHY Conformance Test Tool (PCTT) to support the further development of an open and standardised UWB ecosystem.

The unique capabilities of UWB for secure fine ranging means UWB-enabled devices can accurately and securely measure the distance and direction of connected devices. These capabilities make UWB a technology for use cases such as indoor navigation, social distancing, hands-free access, asset tracking, ticket validation, mobile payment and point-and-trigger applications.

The FiRa Certification Program is intended to support interoperability of UWB-enabled devices on different layers. This includes physical layer conformance testing performed by FiRa Authorised Test Laboratories (ATLs). These labs use FiRa validated test tools like the test solution from Rohde & Schwarz.

As a leader in wireless device testing, Rohde & Schwarz collaborates with industry partners and organisations like the FiRa Consortium to develop UWB test solutions. These test solutions are used for R&D, certification, chipset characterisation and production. The comprehensive set of UWB test capabilities of the R&S CMP200 radio communication tester controlled by the new UWB PHY Test Suite for test automation allows flexible pre-conformance testing. It also offers an option to run as a PCTT for FiRa certification.
