Altair selects Rohde & Schwarz as test partner for new IoT chipsets

Friday 9 February 2018 | 11:54 CET | News

Altair Semiconductor selected Rohde & Schwarz as its strategic partner for test equipment for its dual-mode CAT-M1/NB1 IOT chipset ALT1250 as well as next-generation IoT chipsets. This test equipment will be used for protocol testing as well as RF, RRM performance and carrier tests.

The ALT1250 is the market's most highly integrated dual-mode CAT-M1/NB-IoT chipset. Modules with ALT1250 inside are the world's smallest, and may be as small as 100mm2 in area. The ALT1250 includes GNSS location positioning, a wideband RF front-end supporting all commercial LTE bands within a single hardware design, a multi-layered and hardware-based security framework, an internal application subsystem and packaging that enables standard, low-cost PCB manufacturing. The Rohde & Schwarz R&S CMW500 offers CAT-M1/NB-IoT protocol conformance tests. It allows manufacturers and test houses to use a single instrument to verify that chipsets, modules and devices comply with GCF and PTCRB standards, and specific network operator requirements.

Altair will be demonstrating partner modules based on ALT1250 at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain from 26 February to 1 March at Altair meeting rooms in Hall 2, Stands 2B2Ex and 2B4Ex. Rohde & Schwarz will showcase CAT-M1/NB-IoT test solutions with the R&S CMW500 at MWC in hall 6, booth 6C40.
