ANRITSU has released an HSDPA (high speed downlink packet access) measurement software suite for its MS8608/9A series of vector signal analysers.
HSDPA is positioned as a 3.5G mobile system and a likely successor to W-CDMA.
The introduction of this software complements an already comprehensive range of suites available for the MS8608/9A series, which include measurement packages for W-CDMA, GSM, CDMA2000 1xEV-DO, wireless LAN (802.11x), pi/4DQPSK etc.
The MS8608/9A series of transmitter testers is equipped with an internal spectrum analyser, a modulation analyser and power meter. Thus one tester covers the development stage right through to manufacturing of base stations, mobile stations and devices.
