MS8608A and MS8609A are transmitter testers equipped with an internal spectrum analyzer, a modulation analyzer and a power meter. Just one tester can cover the development and manufacturing of base stations and mobile stations, as well as the construction and maintenance of base stations.
- MS8608A supports 9 kHz to 7.8 GHz and high power inputs up to +40 dBm.
- MS8609A supports 9 kHz to 13.2 GHz and input power up to +20 dBm.
The spectrum analyzer has resolution bandwidths up to 20 MHz, meaning that it can readily support measurements of wide-band signals. The modulation analyzer realizes all Vector Signal Analysis (VSA) functions through high-speed DSP. The power sensor can perform highly accurate power measurements of ±0.4 dB by using an amorphous power sensor.
Up to three measurement software options (such as W-CDMA, GSM/EDGE, HSDPA, WLAN/802.11, CDMA, 1xEVDO) can be installed simultaneously. Input signals can be selected from RF or I/Q inputs. For I/Q signals, balanced or unbalanced input can also be selected.
Each tester can be equipped with optional GPIB, RS-232C, and 10BASE-TEthernet interfaces for remote measurement. High-speed GPIB data transmission of 120 kbyte/sec enables high-speed measurement on the manufacturing line. The monitor uses an easy-to-see TFT color LCD.
