Anritsu Adds Enhanced C-V2X Measurement Functions to its RF Test Sets

Anritsu has introduced the LTE-V2X PSCCH TX Measurement MX887068A-001 software option to enhance Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) measurement functions of the Universal Wireless Test Set MT8870A/MT8872A.

Adding this new MX887068A-001 option to the LTE-V2X Tx Measurement MX887068A software for the MT8870A/MT8872A not only supports the Physical Sidelink Shared Channel (PSSCH) for LTE-V2X (PC5) but also supports RF measurement of the Physical Sidelink Control Channel (PSCCH). As well as supporting mass production of LTE-V2X (PC5) devices, this option facilitates the evaluation of R&D RF test items.

Anritsu can now support pre-release laboratory evaluation testing of V2X devices and configuring an adequate test environment for R&D and mass production. 

Development Background

LTE-V2X (PC5) will cooperate with other radio access technologies such as 5G V2N (Vehicle to Network) and the Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) and is expected to be adopted for Connected Autonomous Vehicle applications.

Japan, Europe, and China are investigating the introduction of V2X to the New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) and RF evaluation of V2X is becoming increasingly important from the safety aspect. V2X communications technology is used for Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC), such as Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS), and C-V2X using mobile communication technology with a wider communication range is also being investigated.

Since the automotive industry is investigating implementing Autonomous Driving/Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (AD/ADAS) with V2X, test solution supporting R&D to mass production is required increasingly.

Anritsu is continuing to develop various future automotive test solutions for wireless connectivity, ITS, AD/ADAS, infotainment, etc., to help the automotive industry secure autonomous driving and safe and secure society.

Product Outline

The Universal Wireless Test Set MT8870A/MT8872A series is designed for developing and mass-production various wireless communication equipment, modules, etc. Installing up to four high-performance test units in the main unit supports a seamless frequency band of up to 7.3 GHz with a 200 MHz bandwidth.

Each unit measures independently in parallel, enabling the MT8870A to quickly and simultaneously evaluate multiple wireless communications devices and the industry’s fastest.
