Create LTE/LTE-advanced waveforms for component testing
The basic waveform playback mode of N7624B Signal Studio enables you to create and customize LTE, LTE-Advanced, LTE-Advanced Pro (NB-IoT and eMTC) FDD waveforms to characterize the power and modulation performance of your components and transmitters. It provides flexible length and customized configuration or standard-compliant test models (E-TM) for measuring the EVM, ACLR, SEM and CCDF of your components and transmitters.
Create LTE signal for receiver testing
The advanced waveform playback mode of N7624B Signal Studio enables you to create LTE waveforms with transport-channel coding to validate eNB and UE receiver characteristics and performance. It provides standard compliant fixed reference channels (FRC), or user configurable custom configurations, for performing receiver measurements such as HARQ functionality and BLER.
The N7624B also provides real-time mode for eNB receiver testing, enabling you to create real-time uplink LTE signals for closed-loop HARQ and timing adjustment tests.
