VIAVI CX700 ComXpert for radio manufacturers and the military consolidate an entire communications test and measurement lab into a single system
Viavi Solutions Inc. introduced the CX700 ComXpert Radio Test System. This radio test solution revolutionizes testing for radio manufacturers and depot-based and field-deployed military personnel by delivering all-in-one high-performance synthetic instrumentation for production, depot-level, and field test of current and future radios and waveforms.
Engineers, manufacturers, and technicians responsible for designing or maintaining RF systems and radios often have to use multiple pieces of test and measurement equipment for accurate testing and verification. The CX700 is uniquely designed to address this challenge by providing users with a comprehensive, versatile, all-in-one communications test system that includes 100 MHz of instantaneous bandwidth, superb phase noise performance from 9 kHz to 6 GHz, the fastest industry-standard data transport mechanisms, and a built-in power supply for the devices under test.
For superior maintainability and upgradeability, the CX700 meets MIL-PRF-28800 Class 3 environmental requirements. It has a GNSS-enabled “no-cal” chassis time base, user-replaceable modules, and an integrated ruggedized keyboard, touchscreen, and trackpad to enable comprehensive system testing in remote-deployed environments.
“The CX700 ComXpert is the culmination of our team’s hard work constantly pushing the cutting edge of radio test design,” said Edward Latimer, Director, Radio Test, VIAVI. “It brings to our customers brand new all-in-one capabilities in lab-grade test equipment, such as the ruggedized chassis and KVM, built-in power supply for devices under test, and superior field maintainability. In addition, the CX700 leverages the highly intuitive GUI first introduced on our CX300 ComXpert, supports native on-box Python scripting as well as remote commands over Ethernet, and interfaces with VIAVI StrataSync and Smart Access Anywhere to deliver a truly exceptional integrated user experience.”
