Agilent Technologies Inc. and Altair Semiconductor will collaborate to accelerate the development of Mobile WiMAX devices. The companies plan to optimize the calibration and verification of Altair's Mobile WiMAX chipset using Agilent's wireless networking test set. As a result, handheld-device manufacturers will be able to quickly and efficiently test and verify their Mobile WiMAX devices.

The Agilent N8300A is a wireless networking test set combined with OFDMA measurement application software, which forms a complete one-box transmitter and receiver test solution for Mobile WiMAX devices. It effectively meets the needs of cell phone, ODM, and CM manufacturing engineers testing WiMAX mobile subscriber devices or modules that use IEEE 802.16e-2005.

Altair's ALT2150 is a small, low-power Mobile WiMAX baseband processor that measures 7-mm x 7-mm and consumes below 100 mW in a 5 Mbit/sec download scenario.
