Morgan Hill, CA — BTS Master™ MT8222A and Spectrum Master™ MS272xB series analysers from Anritsu Company now boast added options that allow field engineers and technicians to conduct W-CDMA and HSDPA measurements faster and more efficiently during the installation and maintenance of wireless networks.
With these options, the MT8222A and MS272xB can support HSPA+ 64 QAM modulation, and a 64 QAM constellation diagram can be displayed on the respective analyzer's measurement screen. The new software also adds support for discontinuous transmission (DTX) and Adaptive Multi-Rate (AMR).
Over-the-Air (OTA) measurement capability has been enhanced as well. OTA scanner measurements can be made twice as fast, and users experience improved Code Domain Power (CDP) measurement performance, due to lower EVM. Additionally, more active channels can be displayed.
These latest options complement the existing W-CDMA and HSDPA measurement capabilities of the MS272xB handheld spectrum analyzers and MT8222A base station analyzer. Both instruments can conduct all the major RF and demodulation measurements on W-CDMA and HSDPA OTA signals.
A protable spectrum analyser, the MS272xB offers sensitivity of less than -153 dBm Displayed Average Noise Level typical at 1 GHz, and can measure very low level signals, a critical feature as the RF spectrum becomes more congested. The handheld spectrum analyzers also feature a wide dynamic range to measure very small signals, even in the presence of much larger signals.
Three models are available in the series. Leading the way is the MS2724B, which covers 9 kHz to 20 GHz. Other models include the MS2721B, with frequency coverage of 9 kHz to 7.1 GHz, and the MS2723B, which goes up to 13 GHz.
The BTS Master MT8222A is an integrated multi-functional base station test tool that eliminates the need to carry and learn multiple test sets. Its measurement capabilities include spectrum analysis, precision return loss, VSWR, cable loss, distance-to-fault, two-port gain/loss, one-port and two-port magnitude and phase, interference analysis, spectrogram, RF and demodulation measurements.
The software options are available for immediate delivery.
