Accelerating Mobile Device Testing for High Volume Production

This technical note will describe the differences between a lab test environment and production test. It will also describe some of the unique advantages that a physical layer tester such as IQxstream or IQxel-M bring to the production floor.

IQxstream and IQxel-M are manufacturing oriented, physical layer wireless test systems that represent a fundamentally new value proposition when discussing production test as compared to the more familiar lab test environment. To fully leverage these capabilities it is important to understand how they differ from the lab testers available and why production test is very different from lab testing.
