It uses 3GPP Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR) for better test efficiency and improving 5G mmWave cell-phone RF characteristics
A new solution launched by Anritsu Corporation, the MA8172A-010 facilitates difficult temperature tests for 5G mmWave cell phones in Anritsu’s CATR Anechoic Chamber. The Temperature Testing Option can be either fitted at new MA8172A purchase or can be retrofitted as an upgrade to customers’ previously purchased units.
Combined use with the Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A for 5G R&D applications and the New Radio RF Conformance Test System ME7873NR for 5G conformance tests facilitates confirmation of 5G mmWave cell-phone RF characteristics in a controlled temperature environment to help assure and improve cell-phone quality.
The small-footprint, CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A uses the 3GPP Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR) method to perform 5G mmWave tests. Supplying cool air from an air conditioner, etc., to the CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A is installed with Temperature Testing Option for configuration of the 3GPP Extreme Temperature Condition test environment covering –10°C to +55°C.
Additionally, continuous testing at low, normal and high temperatures is not only linked with improved test efficiency but also plays a key role in the growing mmWave market.
Anritsu Corporation launched sales from February 1 of its Temperature Testing Option MA8172A-010 upgrade for the CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A.
