Radio Communication Analyzer MT8820C

 
Radio Communication Analyzer MT8820C
Features
  • RF Tests for LTE-Advanced FDD DL CA, LTE, 2G and 3G mobile terminals
  • Market-Leading TD-SCDMA functionality including HDSPA and HSUPA
  • Fast test times for R&D, Service and Manufacturing
  • Supports manufacturing including non-signaling UE calibration and functional tests
  • Backwards compatibility with MT8820A/B
  • Parallelphone measurement option for testing 2 phones at once

The MT8820C Radio Communication Analyzer platform covers 30 MHz to 2.7 GHz (3.4 GHz to 3.8 GHz valid only if MT8820C-018 is installed). Installing dedicated software and optional hardware supports evaluation of key TRx characteristics for LTE-Advanced FDD DL CA, LTE FDD/TDD, W-CDMA/HSPA/HSPA Evolution, CDMA2000 1X/1xEV-DO, TD-SCDMA/TD-SCDMA HSPA, GSM/GPRS/EGPRS, and PHS/ADVANCED PHS mobile terminals.

By installing 2G/3G/3.5G dedicated measurement hardware and software in the main frame, one MT8820C supports high-speed batch measurements of RF TRx characteristics and call connection tests for 2G/3G/3.5G mobile terminals. In addition, installing the MX882012C/13C supports RF TRx tests required for manufacturing LTE FDD/TDD mobile terminals and data cards. The MX882012C/13C supports 2x2 MIMO DL LTE Rx throughput tests too.
