ZigBee Automated Compliance Test Solution

ZigBee aCT is a ZigBee Automated Compliance Testing solution that executes a sequence of Tx and Rx tests to characterize a DUT's compliance and performance in accordance with the IEEE 802.15.4 standard and generates detailed test reports This solution enables the user to test the ZigBee DUTs with minimal user input requiring just the configuration parameters to be input for each test.

The tests provided are optimized for speed to reduce test times and are verified for their accuracy with various RF Chipsets from leading manufacturers.

The software integrates with the National Instruments' vector signal generator and analyzer hardware to provide a complete test-bench solution. The main advantage of this solution includes test automation with minimal user input and the ability to save test results in easy-to-read report formats. ZigBee aCT performs several compliance tests on any or all of the 16 frequency channels numbered 11 to 26.

With the help of the DUT's firmware, the control of the DUT is handled by ZigBee aCT through RS-232 communication. The user can perform a number of Rx tests including BER/PER tests with ease without requiring external DUT-controller software.
