Joint Anritsu and ETS-Lindgren Japan Measurement Solution Exhibited at Wireless Technology Park 2018
Anritsu Corporation exhibited its measurement solutions jointly with ETS-Lindgren Japan at Wireless Technology Park 2018 held at Tokyo Big Sight from May 23 to 25.
ETS-Lindgren Japan introduced its AMS-8040 Antenna Measurement System at the ETS-Lindgren Japan booth in conjunction with Anritsu’s Wireless Connectivity Test Set MT8862A and Bluetooth Test Set MT8852B to demonstrate a WLAN and Bluetooth OTA measurement*1 solution.
Anritsu introduced its MT8862A at the Anritsu booth in conjunction with ETS-Lindgren’s Model 5601 RF Test Enclosure as a WLAN measurement solution in a noise-free environment.
Use of WLAN and Bluetooth communications is spreading rapidly as IoT applications move into home electronics, such as printers, TVs, etc., automobiles, industrial machinery, sensors, and more. Assuring the communications quality of these equipment by measurements such as testing antenna characteristics and TRx sensitivity in an OTA environment cannot be ignored.
On the other hand, WLAN and Bluetooth are common short-range wireless communications technologies using the 2.4 and 5-GHz bands that are used by many other devices, resulting in difficulties creating a measurement environment with as little interference*2 as possible.
To help solve this issue, Anritsu and ETS-Lindgren Japan jointly demonstrated their efficient and accurate wireless measurement solutions.
[Measurement Solutions Outline]
The Model 5601 RF Test Enclosure introduced at the Anritsu booth isolates from outside signal interference to easily configure an ideal measurement environment. Use in combination with Anritsu’s MT8862A supports WLAN quality measurements without impact from outside signal interference.
Meanwhile, the AMS-8040 Wireless Antenna Measurement System introduced at the ETS-Lindgren Japan booth not only isolates from outside signal interference but also supports tests of antenna characteristics as well as Rx sensitivity tests. Combined use with Anritsu’s MT8862A and MT8852B offers easy configuration of a WLAN and Bluetooth turnkey measurement environment*3 for efficient OTA measurements.
*1 OTA Measurement
Abbreviation for Over The Air measurement.
Radio performance using radio waves sent and received via antennas in contrast to measurements generally made using cables connected to radio equipment connectors
Unwanted signals coming from outside the communications system
*3 Turnkey Measurement Environment
Instant-on measurement system for target application requiring no additional development
