Signal Analysis for LTE testing Spectrum and EVM measurements Analyzes both uplink and downlink LTE signals
Agilent Technologies Inc. has released a 3GPP LTE modulation analysis option for its 89600 Series Vector Signal Analysis software. The option provides today's RF and baseband engineers with a comprehensive signal analysis solution for LTE physical layer testing and troubleshooting of LTE transceivers and components. The Agilent 3GPP LTE option enables LTE signal analysis from baseband to antenna, on digitized or analog signals both uplink and downlink. The 3GPP LTE option is specifically designed to give R&D engineers deep insight into the RF and modulation characteristics of an LTE prototype device. It enables analysis of spectrum and EVM measurements for the entire frame, or within a frame on a sub-frame, slot or individual symbol on data and control channels, as well as synchronization and reference signals. Together with the Agilent 89600 VSA software, it is the only analysis tool capable of analyzing both uplink (SC-FDMA) and downlink (OFDMA) LTE signals in a single option, according to the company. As a result, users can perform transmitter measurements on both the base station and mobile station using the same solution.
