LTE TDD, TD-SCDMA, and FM/GPS/Digital Broadcast Functions for Manufacturing Smartphones and Tablets

- MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set and MU887000A TRx Test Module -


For immediate release - Anritsu is proud to announce the release of new options for the MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set, to support the latest LTE-TDD standard from 3GPP and also the TD-SCDMA standard as used in China. In addition, the FM radio, GPS and digital broadcast features used in many smartphones are now also supported by this test set. This provides the most comprehensive set of options and capability for high speed testing or smartphones, in a cost effective solution.

Anritsu has developed the MT8870A and MU887000A with this full range of options to meet the manufacturing requirements of advances smartphone production lines, with a powerful all-in-one testing platform capable of all relevant wireless measurement standards. As the complexity of smartphones increases with new radios, bands, capabilities, then the time and cost of test is ever increasing.

The technology used in the MT8870A is key to reducing the time and cost of testing for such advanced smartphones. The MU887000A incorporates a high-performance signal analyzer and vector signal generator. Additionally, the vector signal generator in the MU887000A can output LTE TDD and TD-SCDMA downlink signal waveforms using the MV887014A LTE TDD Downlink and MV887017A TD-SCDMA Downlink Waveform file options for standards-compliant Rx tests.

The MT88700A and MU887000A platform, into which the MX887014A LTE TDD Uplink Tx measurement and MX887017A TD-SCDMA Uplink Tx Measurement options are installed, will then support measurement of the LTE TDD and TD-SCDMA Tx characteristics defined by 3GPP.

Audio Measurement Hardware featured in the MU887000A-002 is used for radio measurements of the FM radio receiver with the MX887070A FM/Audio TRx Measurement software option, and also supports use as an audio measuring instrument with modulation/demodulation of audio signals required by FM transceivers.

The new MT8870A Universal Wireless Test Set and all of the above options are available immediately.
