RICHARDSON, Texas -- Anritsu Company continues its commitment to next-generation wireless technologies with the enhancement of its LTE software and tool set. The improved software packages allow Anritsu’s MS269xA Signal Analyzer series and MG3700A Vector Signal Generator to conduct highly accurate measurements on LTE Uplink and Downlink signals. With the accuracy required for R&D and the speed needed for manufacturing, Anritsu’s test equipment facilitates efficient testing of 3GPP LTE-compliant mobile terminals, base stations, and components.

For the MS269xA, both the LTE Uplink and Downlink packages now include analysis at the resource block level. Analysis resolution can be set to the physical channel, resource block, subcarrier, and symbol. EVM, a key figure of merit for LTE, is available at any resolution. Users can quickly test all varieties of unwanted emissions described in the specification with the MS269xA. By pressing a single button, OBW, ALCR, and Out-of-Band Spurious Emissions measurements can be made.

IQproducer, Anritsu’s waveform generation software, has been enhanced to allow users to define test waveforms for the Uplink or Downlink. While standard test waveforms are not yet part of the specification, IQproducer provides users with a rich set of parameters and variations to create standard and unique waveforms for LTE signal analysis. When IQproducer is installed on the MS269xA and the MG3700A, the instruments can up convert and generate any waveform, including Uplink and Downlink data frames, and Uplink Random Access Preamble signals.
