5G partnership hones MIMO OTA testing

Anritsu and AeroGT Labs have teamed to provide 5G MIMO OTA test platforms to characterize, test, and optimize antennas. The platforms can be used to test the performance and reliability of single-use and multiple-use antennas in vehicles, mobile devices, and similar products in a simulated environment before commercialization.

AeroGT Labs was recently formed by OTA measurement specialist General Test Systems and test and measurement company TOYO. The turnkey systems integrate Anritsu’s MT8821C radio communication analyzer and MT8000A radio communication test station with solutions from General Test Systems (GTS). According to Anritsu, the high dynamic range RF performance of the MT8000A and MT8821C enables successful 3GPP-specified radiated two-stage (RTS) testing in a MIMO environment.

The China Intelligent and Connected Vehicles (CICV) Research Institute in Beijing standardized on an OTA MIMO measurement system using an automotive communication performance measurement system developed by GTS, the Anritsu MT8000A and MT8821C instruments, and integrated by TOYO. It supports CICV’s efforts to codify wireless communication standards for intelligent connected vehicles (ICV). The system employ’s GTS’ patented RTS method to accelerate the measurement cycle without sacrificing accuracy.

These 5G MIMO OTA platforms can be used at many different product development stages, ranging from research and development to quality assurance and production test. Industry professionals seeking OTA testing capabilities can contact AeroGT or Anritsu for more information or a product demonstration.
