The MT8872A from Anritsu is a Universal Wireless Test System that operates from 10 MHz to 6 GHz. It has been designed for testing high volume smartphones, tablets, Automotive Solutions, IoT devices and wireless modules. The test set supports various wireless communications standards, including 5G NR Sub-6 GHz, LTE/LTE-Advanced, LTE-V2X, NB-IoT, Cat-M, V2X 802.11p, WLAN and Bluetooth. It has a standard measurement bandwidth of up to 200 MHz.
The test set supports up to two measurement modules that can be installed in one main frame and each module can be controlled independently. Each module shares the same power supply, chassis, and internal bus interface, helping cut infrastructure costs.
Installing two test units in the MT8872A main unit supports simultaneous parallel measurement of up to two connected devices under test. As the number of antennas in wireless communication devices increases to facilitate more wireless communication methods, each test unit supports the connection of up to 12 antennas to greatly simplify the test setup.
The MT8872A has a built-in audio analyzer and generator for both analog and digital mono and stereo audio that saves space on communication-module production lines and increases measurement efficiency for better line throughput.
