Anritsu reports Samsung selects signal analyzer for 5G system development

Feb. 23, 2018

Richardson, TX. Anritsu announced that Samsung has selected its Signal Analyzer MS2850A with 5G analysis software installed to support 5G system developments. Samsung last year unveiled its end-to-end 5G product portfolios, including 5G home routers (CPEs) and a 5G Access Unit (AU), under development for commercial-grade products. The company is engaged with major operators in leading markets such as the United States, South Korea, and Japan to commercialize 5G. Anritsu’s MS2850A will play a key quality assurance role during manufacturing to facilitate fast 5G service deployments.

By partnering with Samsung in the mobile communications field since 3G (W-CDMA), Anritsu has long supported communications equipment development and manufacturing. This new advance as a 5G measuring equipment vendor for Samsung production lines provides a measurement solution tailored to fast deployment of future 5G services.

With an analysis bandwidth of up to 1 GHz, as well as built-in modulation analysis software and all-at-once capture of up to eight multicarrier signals, the MS2850A is suitable for development and manufacturing of 5G wireless-communications equipment. These advanced features slash measurement times compared with earlier slow signal analyzers requiring channel-by-channel analysis. In addition, the dynamic range, amplitude, and phase flatness of the MS2850A, which meet or exceed the specifications of high-end models, support high-accuracy signal analysis while controlling capital equipment costs. This helps increase product quality and measurement speed while maximizing investment efficiency.

Shinya Ajiro, general manager, IoT Test Solutions Div., Anritsu, said, “We are very pleased that Samsung Electronics—the world leader in the 5G market—has chosen our MS2850A as the best solution for their 5G wireless equipment manufacturing needs, and we shall continue working hard to provide more measurement solutions playing a key role in development of a mobile communications society, beginning with 5G.”
