Anritsu High-Performance Signal Analyzer for 5G and Wideband Signal Measurement
Anritsu has announced the release of its high-performance MS2850A Signal Analyzer targeting development and commercial production of 5G mobile communications systems.
The MS2850A supports a measurement range up to 44.5 GHz, analysis bandwidth up to 1 GHz and the evaluation of 5G multicarrier signals. Its high dynamic range and good flatness performance cut measurement times using all-at-once, high-accuracy measurements of a typical 800 MHz modulation bandwidth to be used in 5G (eg, eight 100 MHz bandwidth carriers).
With many operators currently preparing the introduction of next-generation 5G cellular mobile communications systems, with plans to start actual testing from late 2017 into 2018, leading wireless equipment makers have started transitioning from the development and verification testing phases to development of commercial models and preparations for volume manufacturing. Additionally, other non-5G communications fields will have the same bandwidth and flatness requirements as 5G when broadband communications come into use offering larger data capacity at faster speeds.
The signal analyser supports transmitter performance tests for wireless communications equipment during development and manufacturing. Installing the 5G measurement software packages in the MS2850A supports measurement of 5G uplink and downlink signal frequency error, power, EVM, etc, using CP-OFDM modulation. Additionally, downlink measurements evaluate multicarriers all at once. Noise figure (NF) and phase noise measurement functions can also be installed.
Not only does the MS2850A support all previous cellular technologies, such as LTE, W-CDMA, TD-SCDMA and GSM, it also offers futureproof support for the new 5G NR standards now being defined by 3GPP.
