Anritsu has enhanced its LTE software and tool set. The improved software packages let Anritsu’s MS269xA signal analyzer series and MG3700A vector signal generator conduct accurate measurements on LTE uplink and downlink signals. The test equipment facilitates efficient testing of 3GPP LTE-compliant mobile terminals, base stations and components.
For the MS269xA, both the LTE uplink and downlink packages now include analysis at the resource block level. Analysis resolution can be set to the physical channel, resource block, subcarrier and symbol. EVM, a key figure of merit for LTE, is available at any resolution.
IQproducer, Anritsu’s waveform generation software, has been enhanced to let users define test waveforms for the uplink or downlink. While standard test waveforms are not yet part of the specification, IQproducer provides users with a rich set of parameters and variations to create standard and unique waveforms for LTE signal analysis.
Besides LTE, the signal analyzers support GSM, GPRS, EDGE, W-CDMA, HSPA and mobile WiMAX.
