PCTEST Partners with Anritsu to Conduct SAR Testing of 5G NR Devices

PCTEST Engineering Laboratory has announced that it will conduct SAR (Specific Absorption Rate) testing of 5G devices using Anritsu's Communication Test System. The MT8000A will be used in PCTEST's Columbia, MD, and San Jose, CA laboratories to emulate a 5G New Radio (NR) radio access network, providing mobile operators and device makers with an efficient means to conduct SAR testing, which is critical due to the imminent rollout of 5G NR technology by operators worldwide.

SAR testing measures the electromagnetic energy absorbed by a body when a wireless device is transmitting in proximity to an end user. SAR testing with the MT8000A will accurately measure the device to evaluate that it is operating within the established maximum RF exposure limits mandated by regulatory bodies.

5G NR devices will be designed in a variety of form factors and power classes that will have different maximum transmitting power limits. The Anritsu MT8000A test system provides reliable 5G NR call connection with the transmitting device over a wide range of frequencies, including FR1 (Sub-6 GHz) and FR2 (mmWave), to enable accurate, reliable, and stable near-field Power Density and SAR measurements.
