Simple Interference Waveform Generator in Interference Testing

Anritsu Corporation is pleased to announce the launch of their brand new Interference Waveform Pattern for 5G NR Receiver Test MX371055A as well as Interference Waveform Pattern for LTE Receiver Test MX371054A software. These tools create 3GPP interference waveforms to test the throughput and sensitivity of 5G as well as LTE User Equipment (UE) as well as modules that use the Vector Signal Generator MG3710E. Incorporating these tools into the MG3710E in conjunction together with Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A and the Radio Communication Analyzer MT8821C makes it easy to evaluate interference tests that are required for 3GPP RF Compliance Test. 3GPP Compliance Test. Compliance Test.

The devices are made to allow for both in-house pretesting for confirming the conformity with sub-6 GHz 5G and LTE UE as well as modules prior to an official 3GPP Compliance Test as well as R&D to increase the sensitivity of receivers and throughput.

Developer Background

Alongside the increasing 5G smartphone sales and annual 5G shipments, the shipments of CPE (Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) have been rising in accordance with mobile operator fixed Wireless Access (FWA) services. Furthermore, the manufacturers of electronic components for automobiles are working on 5G communication modules, including for instance, the Telematics Control Unit (TCU).

In addition, with this expanding marketplace for 5G UUE modules, many of the companies continue to develop LTE UE and modules to mobile operators that haven’t launched 5G services as of yet.

To market 5G as well as LTE UE or modules the equipment manufacturers must make sure that their products meet the 3GPP RF Compliance Test administered by a recognized test institute.

Compliance Test Compliance Test is the final product test before commercial release. Failure to pass may require revision and repeat testing. Thus, testing before the development phase is crucial to reduce the danger.

Vector signal generators are necessary to create interference waveforms for the time of pre-testing. The evaluation of interference waveforms is crucial in reducing the sensitivity of receivers that are degraded and aids in the that efficient UE or modules.

Anritsu has developed two 3GPP-compliant interference pattern tools that help engineers with no expertise in the field create interference waveforms to conduct simple interference tests.

Description of the Product

Its Vector Signal Generator, MG3710E can support testing the sensitivity of the receiver and interference by generating modulation waveforms of up 6- GHz and these brand new software tools for interference waveforms enable output of different signals.

The MG3710E that comes with Anritsu’s RF Conformance Test System ME7873 series that supports 5G, as well as LTE systems will complete tests for the RF Compliance Test by certification companies, like test houses.


Generate 3GPP-compliant interference pattern to perform Rx tests of sub-6 5GHz bands and LTE Modules and UE. These patterns are utilized for the RF Conformance Test System.
