Anritsu Corporation starts sales of its NB-IoT uplink Tx measurement MX887067A software and NB-IoT downlink waveforms MV887067A package supporting 3GPP RF measurement tests for NB-IoT devices and further strengthening the functions of the popular universal wireless test set MT8870A.
Installing these developed NB-IoT options in the MT8870A enables evaluation of communications equipment with built-in NB-IoT functions as well as tests of the RF TRx characteristics of modules. Additionally, these same options are bundled with a PC application supporting signal analysis to assist customers with development work and design testing. Moreover, a fully automatic measurement application is provided for controlling measuring instruments and chipsets at prototyping and mass-production testing. These application software packages can be used to simplify test program creation and automate measurement, cutting customers’ test software development man-hours by about 90 percent.
The MT8870A is a measuring instrument for mass-production of wireless communication devices, including 2G/3G/LTE/LTE-A, W-LAN, Bluetooth, GPS, FM, etc., technologies. Up to four high-performance test units can be installed in one main chassis, with each unit performing completely independent parallel measurements to evaluate up to four wireless communications devices simultaneously. Installing the developed NB-IoT measurement software (NB-IoT Uplink Tx Measurement MX887067A and NB-IoT Downlink Waveforms MV887067A）in the MT8870A supports fast and easy 3GPP NB-IoT RF tests, including power, frequency, modulation accuracy, Rx sensitivity, etc.
