RTX Telecom A/S Introduces the RTX2300 Modular Test Unit, a Highly Optimized Automated Test Solution for Production of Wireless Enabled Devices

NOERRESUNDBY, Denmark, December 7, 2010 - RTX Telecom A/S announces availability of the RTX2300 Modular
Test Unit, a multipurpose solution to dramatically simplify and cost-reduce
the production test environment compared to traditional "rack and stack"
wireless test implementations. This new compact platform is intended for
wireless device calibration and functional test (including DECT, GSM, WiFi,
Bluetooth(TM), etc.) and integrates numerous test components. The design of
the RTX2300 is based on the extensive experience RTX has gained though the
development and installation of automated test equipment (ATE) systems over
the past 10 years.

The RTX2300 can be used for printed circuit board (PCB) as
well as final product testing. It features a customization area that enables
the interconnection between internal and external measurement functionality
and the device under test (DUT), reducing both space requirements and
complexity for the total test system. The flexibility of the RTX2300
simplifies the customization of the test platform, and enables economical
replication. A production test system can be implemented by using an RTX2300
in combination with an RF communication tester (such as the RTX 2011
DECT/CAT-iq RF Tester or Agilent 8960) and a PC for executing the test

The RTX2300 reduces the complexity, size, and cost of the ATE system
through the inclusion of modular instrumentation internal to the test unit,
including a digital volt meter, tone generator, and signal multiplexer.
Optional internal instrumentation includes a programmable power supply,
battery simulator, and high stability frequency counter. These components
allow for the calibration and test of the baseband and audio portions of a
DUT without the need for additional external equipment. The RF shielded
compartment of the RTX2300 can be customized with a device-specific probe
fixture, including a pneumatic capture unit to automatically hold the DUT in
place during test.

The RTX2300 can decrease overall product test time since it has been
designed to allow several units to be set up in parallel, enabling optimal
use of RF, baseband, and acoustic test resource, and effectively reducing the
handling time of the DUTs. In addition, the RTX2300 can streamline the
manufacturing process, since in literally a matter of seconds, it can be
physically reconfigured to accommodate different products and test types.

Demonstration units are available now, and production units will be
available in the 1st quarter of 2011. Customization of the RTX2300's hardware
fixture and software test application can readily be performed by the end
user, or RTX can provide these services.
