E1966A 1xEV-DO terminal test application, which runs on the industry-standard 8960 Series 10 (E5515C/E) wireless communications test set, delivers comprehensive call processing and RF parametric test capability to verify the RF performance of your 1xEV-DO wireless access terminals. The E1966A is developed to meet the needs of high-volume manufacturing, wireless RF device development, and service and repair.
Based on the high performance E5515C/E test set, you gain the additional benefits of extremely fast measurement speed, ease of programming, accuracy, reliability, and worldwide service and support. These proven features help you shorten test development time, increase throughput, and minimize support costs. We will help you protect your investment by meeting your test needs now and into the future. The E1966A is continuously updated to add test capabilities to best address the cellular device market trends, such as 1xEV-DO Release A and Release B.
The E1966A is the first-to-market with support for 1xEV-DO Release B MCTAP and Optional DRC (including 64QAM). This functionality provides R&D engineers with standardized RF parametric tests for Release B, ensuring that components are designed to handle the more stringent modulation requirements. Manufacturers can easily expand their existing 1xEV-DO production tests to include Release B. Single carrier Release B MCTAP functionality can be added with the E1966A-102 Release A feature option; two or three carrier Release B MCTAP functionality requires feature option E1966A-103.
Easily upgrade the 8960 Series 10 (E5515C) for testing multiple technologies
For cdma2000®/1xEV-DO dual mode device test, simply add both the E1966A 1xEV-DO test application and the E1962B cdma2000/IS-95/AMPS test application to the E5515C. Or, if you do not already own an E1962B or E1966A, order the E1996A cdma2000/1xEV-DO test application suite and save!
The 8960 can fast switch between all major 2G/3G/3.5G wireless formats for multi-format mobile device testing. See Related Software Products for other test application formats.
