The R&S CMX500 radio communication tester from Rohde & Schwarz brings extensive device testing capabilities to the market, covering standalone (SA), non-standalone (NSA), TDD, FDD, FR1 and FR2.
ETS-Lindgren is integrating the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester to offer turnkey 5G test solutions to its customers. Pairing the R&S CMX500 with ETS-Lindgren’s CTIA-compliant EMQuest™ Antenna Measurement software and regulatory-compliant TILE!™ emissions and immunity software will provide comprehensive 5G OTA and EMC/EMI test capabilities.
The R&S CMX500 provides support for all 5G NR modes including FR1 (sub-6 GHz) and FR2 (mmWave), NSA and SA, for both FDD and TDD. The R&S CMX500 works seamlessly with the R&S CMW500 wideband radio communication tester, the industry standard for cellular (LTE, C-IoT, 3G, 2G) and connectivity (WLAN, Bluetooth®) testing. The combination of the R&S CMX500 with the R&S CMW500 provides complete coverage of all major commercial wireless technologies.
“5G NR is one of many radio access technologies that needs to be tested on the next generation of wireless devices,” says Jari Vikstedt, director Wireless Solutions with ETS-Lindgren. “The ability to upgrade an existing ETS-Lindgren Wireless OTA and EMC/EMI test system to support 5G NR with the simple addition of a R&S CMX500 gives our customers the easiest and most cost-effective way to enable 5G testing.”
“Different from other solutions on the market, the R&S CMX500 was designed from the ground-up to meet all of the diverse testing needs of 5G with a single solution,” says Michael Thorpe, product manager, Rohde & Schwarz. ”We are excited to be partnering with ETS-Lindgren to bring 5G NR OTA and EMC testing capabilities to the market.”
