Control Packages for Atheros Devices

In partnership with Atheros, Anritsu has developed control packages that provide a fully automated test solution for the devices listed below. Each control package uses a DLL containing commands that enable CombiTest to configure the chipsets from within a test plan. These commands are sent to the device via a host processor interface. When the test plan is executed, both the MT8860B/C and device are simultaneously controlled, allowing the test plan to proceed to completion in a fully automated manner.
