Anritsu has released ISDB-T and DVB-T/H bit error rate (BER) measurement options for its MS2712E/ MS2713E Spectrum Master handheld spectrum analysers and MT8212E/MT8213E Cell Master base station analysers.
The BER options expand the measurement capabilities of their MS2712E/ MS2713E and MT8212E/ MT8213E handheld analysers, providing users with a broad portfolio of digital broadcast measurements for ISDB-T and DVB-T/H available in handheld instruments.
The BER measurements, together with the other digital video and SFN measurement options help ensure digital TV transmitters are configured according to license agreements and optimised for error-free reception over the entire coverage area.
Anritsu has utilised for the ISDB-T BER function, Silicon Infusion’s Zaltys 3-Layer ISDB-T Demodulator core technology, which integrates a high-performance COFDM demodulation engine and a fully compliant deframer to help the handheld analysers provide high-quality real-time measurements.
Other enhancements made for DVB-T/H testing applications include extending the frequency tuning ranges on the MS2712E/ MS2713E Spectrum Master and MT8212E/ MT8213E Cell Master models to 2.4 GHz in addition to including a frequency map for automatic channel selection from VHF channels 5-12 for European testing environments.
