Anritsu Company introduces the MT8860B WLAN Test Set a protocol-based single-instrument test system for analyzing the performance of 802.11b/g devices and consumer products. Simulating an Access Point, the MT8860B creates a standard connection to the device under test (DUT), eliminating special DUT test mode software or signal generator programming commonly used by other WLAN test systems. All major 802.11b/g transmitter and receiver measurements can be made with the MT8860B, making it a good testing alternative to traditional test systems consisting of power meters, spectrum analyzers, Golden Radios and attenuators. Because it simulates an Access Point, the MT8860B can directly measure a DUT's receiver sensitivity and all transmitter parameters. Transmitter measurements, such as OFDM, EVM, power profile, spectral mask and CCDF, can be conducted in parallel, providing improvements in measurement speed compared to conventional systems that perform sequential measurements with long sweep times. All transmitter measurements are conducted via the MT8860B's Packet Loopback measurement capability that eliminates the need for DUT test mode software.
