Agilent Technologies Inc. announced a new member of its GS-8800 family of RF design verification and conformance test solutions: the GS-8853 3G RF Conformance Test (RCT) system. This system for mobile handset conformance test is well suited for use by wireless test laboratories, handset manufacturers, chipset vendors and NEMs performing full wireless RF conformance test.
The Agilent GS-8853 RCT system is designed to test handsets for conformance to the individual test standards as prescribed by the Global Certification Forum (GCF) for UMTS mobile phones. (PCS-type certification review board (PTCRB) validation is expected shortly.) Supporting multiple technology formats (e.g., 2G to 3G and 3.5G conformance test) and a wide range of bands, including Band 1, II and V, the GS-8853 aims to minimize the user's capital investment, ensure development of quality products, and provide an easy upgrade path for Release 6/7 HSPA/HSPA+ formats planned within 2008.
The Agilent GS-8853 3G RCT system is available now through Agilent's direct sales channels. Pricing is dependent on system configuration.
