Anritsu MT8870A high-volume tester

The MT8870A instrument mainframe by Anritsu is aimed at high-volume manufacturing test of cellular and short-range wireless user equipment (UE) and houses up to four test modules. Each module does not need external switching to alternately measure two smart phones.

Each MU887000A test module includes a built-in VSA (vector signal analyser) and VSG (vector signal generator) for performing DUT transmitter and receiver tests. Modules cover a frequency range of 10MHz to 3.8GHz, 6GHz optionally, and provide a measurement bandwidth of 160MHz.

The platform implements test capabilities for multiple wireless technologies through the addition of VSA and VSG software options to the mainframe, ranging from Bluetooth and WiFi to LTE and 802.11ac. Installing four independent modules in the MT8870A enables simultaneous measurement of four separate wireless devices. A unique IP address can be allocated to each slot, and each module supports remote control via Ethernet or optional GPIB connections.

CombiView PC-based software is used to control the MT8870A and allows the display of graphical and numerical test results. A utility program detects the network and aids in licensing and firmware upgrades.
