Anritsu has introduced a new series of communications test unit that streamlines signal analysis for GSM, GPRS, EDGE, WiMAX and HSPA, increases measurement speed and combines multiple-test features in one module.

The company says the MS2690A and MS2691A series signal analysers set a new standard in the mobile test market, with 20x increased measurement speed and the integration of signal analyser, signal generator and RNC simulator into one piece of equipment.

Employing advanced FFT techniques and a high-speed CPU, the MS269X series is now able to offer a 20x increase in measurement speed and a 10x increase in processing power when measuring across a number of technologies such as GSM, CDMA or OFDM. Anritsu suggests this makes the MS269X series the fastest signal analyser on the market, dramatically lowering the time required to perform critical measurement functions.

Anritsu says with the incorporation of the three functionalities into one 'box', the need for combining multiple pieces of RF equipment on the test bench is eliminated, providing savings in system set-up time as well as calibration. The integrated, single box design is 30 per cent smaller than previous generations of signal analysers, which cuts test bench space requirements.

The MS2690A and MS2691A are suitable for use across the mobile market, supporting GSM, GPRS, EDGE, W-CDMA, WiMAX and HSPA. The MS269X series is also capable of Long Term Evolution (LTE) and 4G application testing, setting standards for the future of mobile devices. The MS269X series also features automatic "plug and play" programming to enable the measurement of mobile WiMAX signals.

Anritsu suggests the MS269X series fundamentally changes the face of signal analysis, delivering a combination of the highest measurement speeds, smallest equipment size with industry leading dynamic range and low noise floor, which enables the measurement of spurious as well as real life signals, which are easily digitised and replicated for testing.
