Anritsu MT8801B Radio Communication Test Set, 300KHz


Antritsu MT8801B Radio Communication Test set 3 GHz Synthesized Generator 3 GHz Spectrum Analyzer


This equipment has been tested. Please refer to the tests/remarks section below for details.



Every major radio communication system in the world, including GSM/DCS1800/PCS1900, IS-136A, PDC and PHS, can be evaluated using just one MT8801B Radio Communication Analyzer, covering the 300 kHz to 3 GHz frequency band in one hardware platform, and the dedicated measurement software options. The call processing test and sensitivity test using loopback method are possible for GSM/DCS1800/PCS1900 and IS-136A.

In addition, connection testing, as well as send testing while communicating, are also possible for PDC and PHS measurement by using the call processing function. And the PDC uplink RCH can be monitored (RSSI, estimated error rate) too. FM radio transmission/reception tests are simplified by using the optional analog measurement function. And the optional spectrum analyzer function covering 10 MHz to 3 GHz is very useful for maintenance as well as for measuring spurious near carrier on production lines. GPIB and RS-232C interfaces are standard, so MT8801B can be incorporated easily into automated production lines or on-site automated testing systems.

The time required for testing equipment on production lines is greatly reduced using the high-speed adjacent channel power and occupied bandwidth measurement functions based on Anritsu’s proprietary measurement algorithm and DSP (Digital Signal Processing).

Furthermore, major transmission test items such as transmission frequency, modulation accuracy (phase error), transmission power, rise/fall characteristics of burst wave, adjacent channel power, etc., can be measured and judged pass/fail for limit value of the each item.
