BEAVERTON, Ore. -- Tektronix, Inc. (NYSE:TEK) , a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, today announced the addition of High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA) test capability to its series of Wireless Communications Analyzers (WCA) for the development of next-generation mobile user and network equipment. The addition will enable designers and manufacturers to test their latest wireless device designs that incorporate HSDPA technology.

Companies throughout the mobile industry are reporting increases in infrastructure spending. As a result, mobile equipment manufacturers are working on designs that will enable the acceleration of next-generation devices and networks. HSDPA, one of the latest next-generation technologies, has the potential to extend third-generation (3G) capabilities to enable an all IP network that merges wireless and wireline infrastructure by significantly enhancing peak data rates, quality of service and spectrum efficiency. To meet designers' requirements to test HSDPA designs today, Tektronix added an HSDPA test suite to its WCA200A Series of Wireless Communications Analyzers.

"Time to market is key for companies developing new wireless technologies like HSDPA," said Rick King, Vice President, Spectrum Analyzer Product Line, Tektronix, Inc. "The unique trigger, capture, and analyze capabilities of Tektronix' Wireless Communications Analyzers form a powerful troubleshooting tool that enables designers to solve tough RF system integration problems that typically delay new product introductions."
