Luton, UK – 11th February 2014 – Anritsu Corporation has announced that they are now approved by LTE chipmaker Sequans Communications for using the MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set as an advanced manufacturing test solution of LTE devices based on Sequans’ Mont Blanc LTE platform. State of the art production facilities require test methods that are fast and reliable, to enable cost effective production solutions, and the MT8870A meets this demand with its flexible hardware configuration and sophisticated software solution.
The Anritsu MT8870A provides a cost effective solution by supporting multiple standards and multiple antenna testing in parallel, and has modular and expandable chassis architecture. The MT8870A is able to support all the major worldwide cellular standards, as well as short range wireless (e.g. WiFiTM and BluetoothTM), GNSS (e.g. GPS and GLONASS), and FM radio testing. This provides a comprehensive and flexible manufacturing test solution for Smartphones and wireless connectivity devices. The unique CombiTestTM software environment provides a sophisticated application to control the MT8870A test hardware, ensuring the solution is easily configured and controlled. With this application, MT8870A is able to support both the RF calibration and the screening (final test) requirements of the production line device test for Sequans chipset based devices.
Sequans’ Mont Blanc LTE platform comprises Sequans’ SQN3120 baseband SOC with an integrated network CPU, a carrier-proven and mature LTE protocol stack, an LTE-optimized transceiver, a comprehensive software package, and reference designs. Designed for the highest performance and efficiency either as a standalone 4G solution or alongside a 3G subsystem, Mont Blanc is a powerful, compact, and cost-effective semiconductor solution for adding LTE connectivity to feature-rich, high performance mobile devices. The SQN3120 baseband chip at the heart of the Mont Blanc platform is certified by leading mobile operators Verizon Wireless and China Mobile.
Anritsu will be demonstrating the MT8870A operating with Sequans devices at Mobile World Congress (Barcelona) on booth number 6F40.
