Agilent (News - Alert) Technologies Inc., specialists in chemical analysis, life sciences, diagnostics, electronics and communications, has unveiled a set of LTE-Advanced 8x8 MIMO signal-generation and analysis solutions.
Agilent’s comprehensive LTE-Advanced 8x8 (News - Alert) MIMO signal-generation and analysis solutions come with Signal Studio and 89600 VSA software, as well as the Agilent X-Series vector signal generators and multichannel signal analyzer with up to eight measurement channels.
The new service blends well with Agilent’s other industry-first solutions for the LTE (News - Alert)-Advanced standard.
According to the company, the suite is ideal for use with R&D and test engineers designing and evaluating transmitters, receivers, basebands, and components for LTE-Advanced base stations and mobile terminals, as its generation and analysis of FDD and TDD signals are compliant with the 3GPP Release 10 standard.
“As a recognized leader and provider of world-class LTE solutions, Agilent plays a pivotal role in the development, revision and implementation of the 4G technology, LTE-Advanced,” said Andy Botka, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Microwave and Communications Division. “Our first-to-market 8x8 MIMO test solutions further complement Agilent’s comprehensive portfolio of LTE-Advanced signal-generation and analysis solutions, and reaffirm our commitment to actively leading the evolution of LTE to a 4G technology.”
Engineers can start testing physical layer implementations of LTE-Advanced devices with greater insight and confidence, once they install the Signal Studio and 89600 VSA software. This innovative solution enables engineers to analyze the root causes of design problems and its multichannel signal analyzer enables full analysis of LTE-Advanced standards on next-generation antennas, base stations and user equipment.
Interested parties can buy the new Agilent’s LTE-Advanced signal-generation and analysis solutions with 8x8 MIMO test. Pricing ranges from $3,300 and $3,600 for the LTE Signal Studio series and LTE VSA Software sets, respectively, to $208,500 for the Multi-Channel Signal Analyzer, 8-channel configuration.
