Precaution of Interference caused from poor Isolation outside MT8820B/C

The precautions of the interference caused from poor isolation outside MT8820B/C, i.e. between UEs and RF cables, should be considered, Especially, in case of using MT8820B/C Parallel Phone Measurement (PPM) configuration which can do 2port-measurement independently by single unit, the interference problem may be occurred easier than 1 port/1 unit configuration since the UEs and/or RF cables tend to be located closely in the production line. Moreover TDD (Time Division Duplex) mode in TD-SCDMA, and TD-LTE technology tend to have the interference problem since TDD uses the same up and down frequencies. But there is also a possibility that FDD mode in WCDMA, GSM, C2K, and LTE FDD while the same frequency in a test is used between UEs. Meanwhile the MT8820C internal isolation between Phone 1 and Phone 2 is at least 138 dB min, which is enough against the interference.

Conducting Gain Compression Measurements Utilizing Peak Power Sensors Application Note

While complex communication signals can transmit information very efficiently, they exhibit large and random amplitude and power variations (commonly referred to peak to average power ration [PAPR] or crest factor). These complex signals are also not very tolerant to nonlinear distortion that inevitably occurs while they are processed by communication subsystems. To minimize the impact on the design and production of today's communications systems, this application note discusses robust measurement methods that can be used to help characterize and quantify the effect these nonlinearities will have on complex signals.
