Anritsu Co. has introduced test solutions that support next-generation PHS (XGP: eXtended Global Platform) to help ensure the successful rollout of XGP in the marketplace. Three software packages have been developed for use with Anritsu’s MS269xA Signal Analyzers and MG3700A Vector Signal Generator to offer designers and manufacturers of XGP mobile devices, base stations and devices a test solution to ensure the performance of their products and speed time to market.

The MX269016A XG-PHS Measurement Software and the MX269909A XG-PHS IQproducer are for use with the MS269xA series, while the MX370109A XG-PHS IQproducer PC software is for the MG3700A. Installing the MX269016A in the MS269xA series supports evaluation of transmitter characteristics of next-generation PHS downlink and uplink signals. In addition, using the MX269909A supports creation of XGP-compliant waveform patterns that can be used with the optional vector signal generator to evaluate receiver characteristics.

The MX370109A PC application software creates next-generation PHS compliant waveform patterns that can be used with the MG3700A to evaluate the receiver characteristics of XGP mobile phone terminals, base stations and devices. One MG3700A can output both the wanted and interference waveforms required for evaluating receiver characteristics, offering a cost-effective measurement solution that eliminates the previous need for two signal generators.
