Anritsu Corp.’s MT8820C Radio Communication Analyzer now integrates with both DASY6 and cSAR3D from Schmid & Partner Engineering AG (SPEAG) to provide seamless Specific Absorption Rate (SAR) compliance testing that significantly reduces assessment costs and maximizes flexibility.

As the range and complexity of wireless devices grows, so too does the need for fast evaluation of the amount of RF energy absorbed by the body when using these devices. The measurement of RF exposure, expressed in terms of SAR, is a mandatory testing requirement in many countries, bringing with it a need for cost effective, accurate and reliable testing that reduces time to market.

DASY6 is the newest generation of the industry-leading dosimetric and near-field evaluation system. It is fully compliant with all international standards and national regulations for SAR measurement. Compared to DASY52, DASY6 includes powerful new features resulting in significant time savings for routine SAR compliance testing. This is achieved without sacrificing accuracy by combining robot-optimized movements, intelligent scanning and smart utilization of standardized test reduction techniques. The integration of the Anritsu MT8820C Radio Communication Analyzer improves the efficiency of user handling to save even more time during the certification process.

cSAR3D is an advanced vector array system for conducting fast and accurate SAR measurements of wireless devices. To improve measurement speed, cSAR3D uses state-of-the-art fast data acquisition, advanced 3D field reconstruction algorithms, and tight integration of the Anritsu MT8820C Radio Communication Analyzer. It is designed for testing compliance with national and international exposure guidelines. It is compliant with the latest draft of IEC 62209-3 and it uses fast SAR protocols defined in IEC 62209-2 and IEEE 1528. cSAR3D integrates with DASY6 for the optimum combination of speed, versatility and regulatory acceptance.

The MT8820C One-Box Tester is a multi-format 2G, 3G, and LTE tester with capability for UE calibration, RF parametric testing, and functional testing, including call processing or no-call based testing. Supported formats include LTE-A, LTE, W-CDMA/HSPA CDMA2K up to 1xEV-DO Rev. A, TD-SCDMA/HSPA, and GSM/GPRS/EGPRS. The MT8820C provides stable and widely proven implementation of cellular standards for base station emulation and RF TRX testing.

”We are delighted to have Anritsu’s award-winning MT8820C One-Box-Tester integrating with our cSAR3D and DASY6 systems. This offers our customers the reliability and flexibility a SAR testing solution demands, with stable testing in LTE/W-CDMA/CDMA2K/GSM environments”, said Prof. Niels Kuster, President of SPEAG.
