Anritsu’s LTE advanced carrier aggregation measurement software for its MT8820C RF tester, enables analysis of mobile devices incorporating the new ultra-fast technology evolution. The new option leverages the PPMTM dual-RF capability of the tester to simulate inter-band and intra-band downlink FDD carrier aggregation with call processing. With the software installed, the MT8820C becomes a single-box tester with the capability to conduct three critical carrier aggregation receiver measurements. The multi-format 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE tester for wireless device calibration, RF parametric testing and functional testing, including call processing or no-call based testing, currently supports LTE, W-CDMA/HSPA to DC-HSDPA, CDMA2K to single and multi-carrier 1xEV-DO rel. A, GSM/(E)-GPRS, and TD-SCDMA/HSPA. Through the company’s unique PPM technology, combinations of these technologies may also be supported, including SV-LTE, SVDO, CSFB and redirection. PPM also enables other technologies that require two simultaneous RFs, including DC-HSDPA, LTE 2x2 MIMO, and now FDD downlink carrier aggregation, to be tested more effectively.
