Agilent Technologies Announces TD-SCDMA Calibration Application for Manufacturers of TD-SCDMA UE
September 25, 2007
SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 24, 2007 -- Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today introduced its TD-SCDMA Calibration Application, which provides the industry's most cost-effective, high-performance, calibration-optimized solution for TD-SCDMA mobile phone manufacturing. Designed for use with the company's E6601A Wireless Communication Test Set, the Agilent E6835A enables the E6601A to support multi-format handset calibration, which includes TD-SCDMA, GSM/GPRS/EDGE, W-CDMA/HSDPA and cdma2000/1xEV-DO. This multi-format support, coupled with stable, accurate, repeatable results, allows today's handset manufacturers to expedite UE calibration while producing high-quality TD-SCDMA/GSM UEs. Agilent's new E6835A application fully supports all requirements for TD-SCDMA chipset calibration. It also provides many of the additional RF performance tests as required by the 34.122 TD-SCDMA test standard. These tests include mean power and RRC-filtered mean power, adjacent channel leakage ratio, spectrum emission mask, error vector magnitude, frequency error and peak code domain error, occupied bandwidth, and transmit on/off power mask measurements. Working together, the Agilent E6835A and E6601A provide industry-leading measurement speed and integrity, built-in windows PC functionality, licensing flexibility, scalability, and software-upgradeable formats. These features are designed to simplify the test process, drive down manufacturing cost-of-test, and accelerate the time-to-volume for high-quality TD-SCDMA/GSM dual-mode UE production.
