New Model Extends 5G RF Conformance Test System for FR1


Contributes to cost-effective verification of 5G devices, such as smartphones, automotives, automatic guided vehicle (AGV), drones, etc.


Anritsu Corporation has released its New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR Lite Model supporting 5G Sub-6 GHz (FR1) TRx tests.

5G services primarily using FR1 are expanding gradually, especially in major advanced economies. As a result, demand for FR1 certification conformance tests is expected to increase. However, 5G conformance tests take longer because 5G NR supports flexible numerology with a wide range of frequencies and scheduling for diverse services, which requires a large number of test cases. Consequently, engineers face challenges in meeting development deadlines and obtaining prompt certification. One solution is purchase of a new conformance test system, however this requires large additional investment.

Anritsu’s extended ME7873NR Lite Model solves this problem by supporting more efficient testing without large extra costs.

Product Outline

The ME7873NR Lite Model is configured using only one MT8000A, unlike the conventional ME7873NR platform consisting of multiple test instruments. This simple configuration has the following key benefits for customers:

  • Optimizes capital investment
    Supports 5G FR1 TRx test cases at lower cost and with flexible upgrade path for required test case coverage.
    1. Upgradeable to Lite Model from own MT8000A to support FR1 conformance test cases
    2. Upgradeable from Lite Model to full ME7873NR model for full conformance test cases
  • Reduces test times Simplified hardware configuration reduces test times by about 20% compared to conventional platform.
  • Same user experience
    Keeping same user interface eliminates unfamiliarity for existing users.
  • Supports 5G conformance test verification
    In addition to conformance tests, automated regression tests, etc., support device verification.
