Anritsu unveils digital broadcast BER testing capability for Spectrum Master handheld analyzers

Telecom Lead Team:

Anritsu Company has launched ISDB-T and DVB-T/H bit error rate (BER)
measurement options for its MS2712E/MS2713E Spectrum Master handheld spectrum
analyzers and MT8212E/MT8213E Cell Master base station analyzers. 

The new
options enable broadcasters, network operators, network installers,
sub-contractors and regulatory authorities to have a complete portfolio of
digital broadcast measurements to properly install and maintain transmitters,
repeaters and gap-fillers, as well as to determine signal coverage.

The company
said in a press release that the options expand the measurement capabilities of
the MS2712E/MS2713E and MT8212E/MT8213E, and provide users with the broadest
portfolio of digital broadcast measurements for ISDB-T and DVB-T/H available in
handheld instruments.

measurements, together with the other digital video and SFN measurement
options, help ensure digital TV transmitters are configured according to
license agreements and optimized for error-free reception over the entire
coverage area.

For the
ISDB-T BER function, Anritsu has utilized Silicon Infusion’s Zaltys 3-Layer
ISDB-T Demodulator core technology. The core integrates a high-performance
COFDM demodulation engine and a fully compliant deframer, which helps the
MS2712E/MS2713E and MT8212E/MT8213E provide high-quality real-time

Anritsu has
made other enhancements for DVB-T/H testing applications. The frequency tuning
ranges on the MS2712E/MS2713E Spectrum Master and MT8212E/MT8213E Cell Master
models have been extended to 2.4 GHz. A frequency map for automatic channel
selection from VHF channels 5-12 has also been added, for European testing

In addition,
the MS2712E/MS2713E provides flexibility for locating, identifying, recording,
and solving communications system problems without sacrificing measurement
accuracy. Each analyzer has dedicated routines for simple one-button
measurements of field strength, channel power, occupied bandwidth, adjacent
channel power ratio (ACPR), carrier-to-interference ratio (C/I), and AM/FM/SSB

MT8212E/MT8213E handheld multi-function base station analyzers are the
smallest, lightest, and most economical solutions for installing,
troubleshooting, and maintaining transmitters and cell sites. The Cell Master
family combines the functionality and capabilities of a cable and antenna analyzer,
spectrum analyzer, interference analyzer, signal analyzers, backhaul analyzer,
and a power meter into one instrument, making it the most full-featured compact
base station analyzer on the market.
