All-in-one test solution for LTE/LTE-A handset: Development, Verification, Conformance

The G9200 Radio Conformance Analyzer (RCA) is an advanced, 'all-in-one' test solution for mobile LTE, and other radio technology equipment. It provides a single highly integrated benchtop instrument with multiple types of test equipment, including a Base Station Emulator (BSE) with up to three cells, VSA, VSG, Protocol Tester, Fading emulator, power meter, audio analyzer, and DC power supply


RF and Radio measurements

The RCA is able to perform analysis of LTE/LTE-A mobile devices at all layers from the physical to the application layer, and is suitable for development, conformance, pre-conformance, and production test applications. It ships pre-loaded with ready-to-run automatic tests that test conformance according to 3GPP 36-521-1, 36-521-3 standards.

You can view, tune to, compare, analyze, and present measured signals using time and frequency domain graphs, EVM, IQ, constellation graphs, tables, markers, marker functions, statistics, limits, and annotations. You can also export results data to other applications (e.g., MS Excel, or Mathlab) for further analysis.


Protocol testing

3GPP TS 36.523-1, Evolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA) and Evolved Packet Core (EPC); User Equipment (UE) conformance specification; Protocol Conformance Specification, Part 1:

3GPP Priority 1 and 2 test clauses:
  • Idle Mode

2xCC DL and 3xCC DL FDD and TDD support


Built-in bases station emulator with 3 cells, vector signal analyzer and generator

The RCA has the ability to control and operate simultaneously different modules, including:

· BSE

· Signaling (to establish a link to UE)

· BSE based radio measurements

· Built in Channel Emulator

· OFDMA Channel Noise Generator (OCNG)

· VSA

· CW Signal Generator

· Power Meter

· Switching Unit

· Built in controlled power supply for UE


Fading and AWGN emulation

· Static propagation condition.

· Multi-path propagation conditions.

· Number of channels: 4.

· Multipath fading profiles supported:

o EPA5

o EVA5

o EVA70

o ETU70

o ETU300

o HST

o TTCQI



TCP/IP application & performance testing

The RCA supports the testing of UEs when application data (IP data) traffic to the device is simulated.

It will simulate the transfer of bidirectional IP traffic to and from the UE.

In this mode the user is able to create simple data traffic flows like http, ftp, UDP, TCP or different PRBS (to be defined), with predefined traffic patterns, and send them to the UE. Complex traffic flows are possible using the internal IP protocol stack or external application simulation software.

Lab-in-a-box’ integrated environment for running, building and management of tests, virtual instruments, projects and standard suites

The RCA Intuitive, easy-to-use GUI facilitates management of a database of tests, test actions and settings, projects, virtual instruments, reports, samples, and client information. It includes New, Edit, Group, Duplicate, Cut, Copy, Paste, Search, and Sort operations. You can run tests directly, or you can create projects with multiple tests that store results automatically


Powerful graphical script for test creation and automation

You can run standard tests, customize existing tests, or create new tests using the powerful RCA script. Tests can be executed conditionally and/or repeatedly in loops, as a function of parameter values, counters, and Equipment Under Test (EUT)-supported features. The appearance of the tests, and presentation of results is fully configurable, and you can arrange graphs, tables, and test parameter controls and set limits, as required. In this way, you can create as many virtual instruments as you require.


Automatic test reports generation in RTF, HTML, PDF format

You can open a test and run it directly from the Test Execution screen, or you can create projects that contain multiple tests, and automatically store all project test results. Detailed test reports can be generated in PDF, RTF, HTML, and CSV file formats, for all tests and projects.


Remote operation and automation of the instrument

You can also operate the RCA remotely using the script and SCPI commands.


Remote control of external equipment

You can control the UE under test using AT commands


Bench top instrument with built-in large touch screen Windows 8 PC, USB, Ethernet ports

The RCA can be used on a bench top, or you can install it in a 19" rack. It has a built-in PC running Windows 8 OS, and all instrument operations are performed via a 15.4" full HD touch screen and the front panel hard keys. An optional external keyboard, mouse
