It features parallel testing and fulfills cellular and non-cellular multi-signal, multi-technology requirements for mass production
To manage multiple parallel signals for both multiple devices and MIMO transmission methods, here’s the new R&S CMP180 radio communication test platform from Rohde & Schwarz. With a maximum measurement speed at frequencies up to 8 GHz, the analyser/generator single-box tester covers wireless standards including Wi-Fi 6E, Wi-Fi 7 and 5G NR at FR1 frequencies, plus a wide range of legacy technologies.
Thanks to excellent RF parameters and high output power, test engineers can use the R&S CMP180 throughout the entire development phase, from engineering validation tests right through to production. The high-speed non-signalling test method is made possible by predefined test routines known to both the device under test and the R&S CMP180, eliminating the need for interactive communications between the device and the tester during the test procedure.
Since the R&S CMP180 features both a vector signal generator and a vector spectrum analyser, the tester generates the test signal sequence as defined in the routine, feeds it to the DUT and analyses the results.
The R&S CMP180 helps expand Rohde & Schwarz its single-box tester portfolio to include frequency ranges up to 8 GHz, supporting all anticipated wideband signals up to 500 MHz. The tester features future-proof hardware with excellent RF performance. Two independent RF channels and 16 RF ports support multiple parallel device tests, MIMO transmission methods and technologies.
The R&S CMP180 will launch in late 2021.
