Santa Clara, Calif., U.S.A.: Agilent Technologies has developed new design verification and conformance systems for Long-Term Evolution (LTE). The three systems extend Agilent’s GS-8800 series for cellular design verification and conformance and are intended for engineers testing LTE devices to meet the TS 36.521-1 standard. They all use the Agilent E6621A PXT wireless communications test set as their core signaling engine.
The company says the U1905A GS-8800 (PXT) LTE benchtop design verification system is an economical solution for engineers who need standards-based testing on the bench when developing LTE devices.
The U1905A benchtop system uses the Agilent E6621A PXT wireless test set, the Agilent N9020A MXA signal analyzer with optional software licenses for Section 6, and part of Section 7 3GPP test cases for LTE. Customers who currently own the Agilent PXT or Agilent MXA can easily build LTE benchtop design-verification capability by adding the new test case software licenses.
The U1901A GS-8800 (PXT) LTE design verification and conformance system provides automated testing of LTE devices with coverage for test cases from Section 6 to Section 9 of the 36.521 LTE test standards. The U1901A is an integrated dual-bay rack consisting of the E6621A PXT wireless test set, the N9020A MXA signal analyzer, and signal generators for fading and adjacent channel simulation, along with switching and band-dependent filtering.
