Consumer demand for ever-more-capable mobile communication devices means
that RF designers are under pressure to create products compatible with the
new Long Term Evolution (LTE) cellular wireless standard. As this technology
becomes increasingly prevalent, it’s more important than ever for test engineers
to understand the new measurements and test instrumentation needed to refine
and characterize these products. This white paper offers a brief overview of
LTE technology and some of the associated test challenges RF testing engineers
now face.
