An RF Power Measurement Solution for Multi-antenna MIMO Transmissions

May 15, 2014 // By Agilent
The MIMO wireless connectivity method has been widely used in today's broadband data transmission equipment. However, with the revision of the ETSI EN 300 328 v1.8.1 test standard, new requirements for multi-channel RF power measurement have been defined which also could be leveraged to other test standards like EN 301 893.v1.7.1. In this paper, a new RF power measurement solution that addresses the revised EN 300 328 v.1.8.1 and EN 301 893 v1.7.1 requirements is discussed which features the Agilent Technologies U2020 X-Series USB peak power sensor and Agilent U2531A 2 MSa/s USB modular data acquisition (DAQ) unit.
