Aeroflex Limited has announced the introduction of a base station (BS) RF tester for all popular cellular and non-cellular wireless standards, including LTE/LTE-A and WiFi. Designed for production test of BS and associated RF components, the tester can be used for both RF design verification and production test on small cells, as well as replacing conventional rack-and-stack instruments for macro BS RF test.
The Aeroflex BS RF Tester measures the BS transmitter (Tx) and receiver (Rx) characteristics of LTE/LTE-A, UMTS/HSPA+, TD-SCDMA, WLAN 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, GPS, and Bluetooth. A Vector Signal Analyzer (VSA), Vector Signal Generator (VSG), and optional multiple channel RF conditioning modules are integrated into a 4U PXI set. Measurement and analysis component libraries that provide low-level remote programming minimize the effort involved for the manufacturer to develop and integrate a customized ATE system, and to maximize production throughput.
An easy-to-use graphical user interface (GUI) also enables bench-top manual operation, making it ideal for the R&D stage regression test and design verification or troubleshooting.
