Anritsu Co. has rolled out a software for its MT8870A universal wireless test set, targeting the market need for efficient manufacturing test solutions to verify IoT/M2M products. With the three software packages, the MT8870A now supports 802.11p, Bluetooth DLE and Z-Wave, creating a fast, all-in-one test set that can simultaneously measure multiple wireless systems used in connected cars, wearables, smartphones and industrial equipment, detailed the company.

The MX887032A/MV887032A software supports 802.11p RF tests for the 700MHz and 5.9GHz bands designed into automotive roadside and vehicle-to-vehicle wireless communications systems. When used with the MT8870A PC application software, it conducts RF tests of 802.11p-compliant chipsets, modules and dashboard equipment. Additionally, the software can be used to configure a fully automated test environment with control of device chipsets.

Support for the latest Bluetooth Core Specification version 4.2 is provided by the MX887040A-001/MV887040A-001 software package. The MT8870A can accurately measure components and devices that support the specification, which expands the Bluetooth low energy data length from 37 octets to 255 octets to improve system throughput by reducing the data transmission overhead and expediting communications between a host device and nearby sensing device, Anritsu noted.

The MX887061A/MV887061A software package supports ITU-T G.9959 Z-Wave RF tests. It can be installed in the MT8870A test set to verify home security systems, home appliance remote controls and other home automation products using Z-Wave, a low-power wireless technology using the 900MHz band.

The MT8870A mainframe can contain up to four TRX test modules, each capable of independent control by an external PC. An integrated vector signal generator and vector signal analyser that can perform transmitter and receiver RF tests is housed in each module. With four modules installed in the MT8870A, four test devices can be connected and measured simultaneously. By allowing different technologies to be measured in parallel, the MT8870A can reduce measurement times as well as the footprint of line test equipment, continued Anritsu.
