The CRCA software has a test manager feature that stores designated test sequences for each phone and associated service provider. Once a technician inputs the phone model under test and corresponding service provider, the appropriate test sequence is automatically recalled.
A data file of test results is created and saved in a tab delimited format immediately after a phone is tested. Because it is saved in such a format, data can be easily extracted to run reports and track test results. A temporary file containing details of the test and results is also created and can be viewed from the operator interface.
Used in conjunction with the MT8802A, the CRCA software creates a single test solution that conducts a variety of transmitter and receiver tests based on TDMA, CDMA, and GSM. The MT8802A essentially combines nine instruments into one. In addition to acting as a base-station simulator, the MT8802A also has the measurement capabilities of a digital modulation analyzer covering 700 MHz to 1100 MHz and 1400 MHz to 2300 MHz bands; 3 GHz RF spectrum analyzer; digital modulation signal generator covering 300 kHz to 3 GHz; audio analyzer/generator; analog modulation analyzer; digital modulation analyzer; power meter with built-in thermocouple; and frame/bit error rate tester.
