Base Station Interface Tester from Elektrobit

Elektrobit has introduced Base Station Interface Tester, said to be the first commercial test solution to provide comprehensive support for verifying the functionality and performance of Obsai RP3 and RP3-01 interfaces.

The new solution can be used to emulate Obsai RP3, RP3-01 and RP1 (timing) interfaces, enabling the development and verification of individual RF or Baseband modules without the presence of other base station parts. The applications also include analysis of RP3 and RP3-01 data transmission between modules of running base station, the company explained, supporting system integration and enabling monitoring and analysis of field operation. The new interface tester promises to ease test development efforts, allowing engineers to focus on product development, thus shortening time-to-market.

The solution supports simultaneous testing of up to four active RP3 or RP3-01 links at line rates 768-, 1,536- and 3,072Mbps defined by Obsai. The tester can operate both in master and slave modes for RP1 synchronization and timing. Interface analyzer features include BER measurements, analysis of RP1 timing and testing of synchronization capability. Received interface data can be captured according to user-defined triggering rules and viewed as waveforms in a logic analyzer window with color coding for erroneous data. The tester's advanced features also include simulation of rarely occurring error situations. Error recovery of the design can thus be tested in a controlled manner, the company said, improving product reliability in the field.

"Obsai welcomes Elektrobit Base Station Interface Tester," said Tero Mustala, chairman of Obsai. "The introduction of a test solution that supports independent module development and verification of interoperability strengthens the status of Obsai as the key base station architecture of the future."
