And we’re back

August 12, 2013

Hello! Just a quick post this time to say that I’m now back from my week away, so there should be some more posts coming up this week.

Both the R6300s and the Wiced boards have now arrived from Broadcom, so there should be lots of new stuff to talk about over the coming few days. As I type the R6300s are in the anechoic chamber, so we can take a measurement of their antenna patterns and then pass that information back to Broadcom. Once that’s done we’ll be able to start using them for link testing.

In addition to the R6300s I also mentioned about these: http://www.broadcom.com/products/wiced/wifi/ which are the Wiced boards. Apparently they’re primarily aimed at washing machines, but the hope is that they may provide a useful alternative to using the microchip boards we’re currently looking at. I’m really looking forward to having a play with them.

Anyway, there is a humming sound coming from a motor under my desk which can mean only thing – another measurement has just finished. Thus it is time to go tend to the chamber! See you later…
