5G NR Sub-6 GHz Measurement Methods

5G mobile communications systems use multiple connections to meet the need for increases in mobile data traffic volumes as well as new functions such as ultra-low-latency. 3GPP determining the standards released the 5G NR non-standalone (NSA) specifications for making connections via multiple radio technologies, such as LTE, in Release 15 in June 2018. Release 15 presumes the use of frequency bands up to 52.6 GHz and specifies the band from 450 MHz to 6 GHz as FR1 (Frequency Range 1), and from 24.25 GHz to 52.6 GHz as FR2 (Frequency Range 2). FR1 assumes use of the same wired tests as conventional wireless technologies whereas FR2 assumes OTA (Over the Air) testing. This application note references the 3GPP TS38.104 and TS38.141 Conformance Test specifications, and introduces TRx test measurement examples for wired connections with sub-6 GHz base stations covering FR1 using the Signal Analyzer MS2850A and Vector Signal Generator MG3710A.

By Product Category

I keep getting a "No Hardware Found" error when trying to connect my MS46122A. How do I fix this?

The issue occurs when the user tries to connect the MS46122A with Windows 8, 8.1 or 10, an error message may appear that suggests that there is no hardware connected to the controller PC.

For MS46122A using Windows 8, 8.1, or 10, please follow this manual driver procedure before installing ShockLine software.

Can a spectrum analyzer be connected to a cable that has DC voltage?

Yes, just don't exceed the maximum voltage that is normally described on the spectrum analyzer port

What is the difference between an OSL calibration and FlexCal?

With the OSL calibration, you have to calibrate each time you change the frequency range. With the FlexCal, you can change the frequency range and you don't have to perform another calibration. FlexCal is great for troubleshooting purposes. The accuracy can be affected if your span is really narrow so for optimum accuracy, it is recommended to use the OSL calibration.

What is the Ext. Analog In on the rear panel connector in Lightning 37000D series VNA?

It is +/- 50 volt input for displaying external signals on the LCD, the connector is BNC female.

How do I calibrate my thru when my DUT has the same gender connector on the input and output?

Use the phase equal adapters provided in the calibration kit.  Refer to page 7-3 of your VNA operation manual for a detailed description on the use of phase equal adapters.

What is the difference between 54100A series and 56100A scalar network analyzers?

54100A series analyzers have a signal source built in the unit and 56100A requires an external source.

What are the different sweep types that the Signal source of Lightning series VNA supports?

It supports Linear, CW, Marker, or N-Discrete point sweeps.

Can I connect a printer to my S312D Site Master that is not on the printer list?

Yes but there is no guarantee that it will work. Only those printers listed have been tested and are known to work properly with the Site Master.

What is the frequency and rise time with "N" type connector for Wideband power sensors?

N type connectors are rated to 18GHz. There are 2 sensors with N types, the MA2490A and MA2491A, 8 and 18GHz respectively. 18ns rise time.

How many data points does the MS2719B have and are they variable?

The MS2719B has 551 data points and they are not variable.  Variable data points are only useful in sample detection, so we have not added this capability.

What type of external trigger can be used in Lightning series VNA?

External TTL triggering for 37000D series VNA measurement. 10 K ohm input impedance, BNC female.

Can I use the 36584 4 port AutoCal module to calibrate my 37369D?

No, the 36584 AutoCal is only specified to 9 GHz and was designed to work with the Scorpion VNAs.

Can I use an Anritsu MA4701A sensor on a ML243xA series power meter.

Yes, the MA4701A can be used on the ML243xA power meters but since the pin configuration is different you will need an adapter which is part number MA2499B.

What is the System GPIB in the 37000D series Lightning VNA used for?

It is used to connect to an external controller for use in remote programming of the network analyzer. The address can be set from the front panel and can range from 1 to 30.

Does the MG3690B understand SCPI commands?

Yes, but only if the unit is configured with a special option installed, SM5821.

Can I use Agilent Vee with my MS462xB/D?

Yes.  While there are currently no drivers written, it is still possible to control the MS462xB/D with Agilent Vee using the GPIB commands.  Refer to the GPIB programming guide.

What is the fast CW operation in the 37000D series Lightning series VNA?

The Fast CW is an ideal mode of operation to attain rapid data over GPIB. To achieve a fast measurement rate, the display is not updated and only the raw S-parameter or user-defined parameter of the active channel is measured.
