Now, we currently used Wifi module "WL18MODGB" for one of our products as attached.
And, we need to test that WIFI nodules on board by using PXA Signal Analyzer (N9030A) at our laboratory in Indonesia due to some reasons Do you have solution how to testing that WIFI module? And, what kind of parts which required to perform that test?
Your kindly assistance would be appreciate related this matter.

Can you please provide more details on exactly what tests are you about to perform? Do those tests required conducted or radiated measurement?
We are glad that we were able to resolve this issue, and will now proceed to close this thread.

Thanks for your reply. We need to perform RF test with do some procedures below,
And my questions as below,
Please kindly advise regarding this matter. Thank You.
Please kindly advise about this matter. Your suggestion would be appreciated. Or, do you have another solution with whom i can make a contact with technical support from Texas Instrument? Due to we need to solve that in a short time. Thank You.

I hope all is well. There are 2 tools that we have available that you can do the required test (setting modulation and channels).
1) IF you have pulled out RS232 and have a pull up resistor on the IRQ line you can used RTTT to do the tests. This is a GUI based interface that allows you to control the radio and does not require the host. In this way you can set the radio as you need. You can download this tool here:
2) The other method is with the host and uses calibrator as part of the Linux system. IN this way you send calibrator commands over the SDIO buss so that you can control the radio. The calibrator commands to use can be found here:
No for connection to the PXA. To do this you need to remove your first series component out of the module then solder on an RF pigtail such as the one below:
The open end would be connect to the pad closest to the module. The other pad that you removed the series component from would be left open. In this way you have disconnected the antenna from the circuit and are sending the signal to the RF cable that you can then connect to the PXA. Note that you will also need to ground the outer cable shielding to ground on your board, thus completing the circuit.
I hope this helps.

Dear Rizwan Murji,
Thanks for your reply. So, we only need to buy WL1835MODCOM8B and TMDXEVM3358 from TI. After that, we conduct this test using PXA Analyzer with follow as your suggestion? Due to we cant do anything because to risky for our PCB unit.
Awaiting your soonest reply.
Well noted for your answers. Which one have you recommended to conduct test that i was mentioned before,
Option No.1 : WL1835MODCOM8B and TMDXEVM3358
And which able to connect with PXA Analyzer using RF cable as below,
Option No.2 : WL18XXCOM82SDMMC and WL1835MODCOM8B and host platform. But, where we can connect with our RF Cable with PXA? What kind of host platform that we need to prepare
Please kindly advise above matter. Thank You.

Any update regarding my question that i was sent to you?
