The Anritsu MT8860A WLAN Test Set is designed to meet the production test requirements of all products integrating IEEE 802.11 Wireless LAN technology. MT8860A is a single box test set for both transmitter and receiver measurements. Through its highly integrated design, the MT8860A replaces the separate test instruments and Gold Radios common in current test systems. MT8860A is suitable for both production and product design proving. The user interface is implemented through the supplied LANLook software package.

The IEEE standard defines limited test modes for 802.11 devices. This has resulted in chip set developers and product manufacturers having to develop proprietary test systems for each device. MT8860A simplifies testing by offering a generic solution for all chip sets. Receiver sensitivity measurements are performed using an integrated reference radio, which makes a connection to the DUT. Packet Error Rate (PER) is calculated from the ratio of transmitted packets to received acknowledgements. Transmit levels down to -100dBm can be set.

This measurement approach offers a rapid set-up and reliable test method for receiver sensitivity measurements. A high-speed spectral processor with 70MHz real time bandwidth performs all transmitter measurements in parallel. DUT power, frequency, carrier suppression, spectral characteristics and power profile are all measured many times faster than is possible with spectrum analyzers and power meters.
