Software options for signal analyser MS269xA series support 5G NR analysis

Anritsu has released software options for the Signal Analyser MS269xA series that provide support for measuring the RF Tx characteristics of 5G mobile communications base stations and terminals.

The latest software options support signal analyses and measurement of RF characteristics by supporting 3GPP-compliant sub-6 GHz uplink and downlink signals and specifying 1 Component Carrier (1CC) up to a bandwidth of 100MHz.

Customers who have already invested in the Signal Analyser MS269xA can immediately and effectively begin developing sub-6 GHz wireless equipment using the same familiar operations, helping bring commercial 5G products to market sooner.

The new software options include:

  • 5G Measurement Software (Basic License) - MX269051A
  • NR TDD sub-6 GHz Downlink - MX269051A-011
  • NR TDD sub-6 GHz Uplink - MX269051A-061

Installing the 5G Measurement Software and NR TDD sub-6 GHz options to the Signal Analyser MS2690A/MS2691A/MS2692A series supports easy and consistent 5G signal analysis, including Tx power, frequency error and EVM of 5G NR TDD sub-6 GHz signals expected to be adopted by the new 5G standard.

Anritsu has added support for 5G measurements to the other communications methods, including LTE/LTE-Advanced. It describes the device’s level accuracy as “excellent” and featuring “dynamic” range, making it suitable for accurate signal analysis. Furthermore, adding various options, such as the built-in vector signal generator, helps to improve the quality of wireless equipment, while reducing the cost of sub-6 GHz measurements.
