Anritsu Company (Morgan Hill, CA) introduced their MT8860A fully integrated wireless-local-area-network (WLAN) test solution at the recent Wireless Systems Design Conference & Expo (San Diego, CA). The MT8860A covers the 2.4- and 5-GHz WLAN bands for covering all WLAN standard, such as IEEE 802.11a/b/g/h and other options. The single instrument performs transmitter and receiver analysis and includes its own internal "golden radio" standard for comparison to a device under test. The MT8860A performs a wide range of transmitter measurements, including power, frequency, carrier suppression, and harmonic levels. The instrument's PCI bus design makes it a simple matter to modify functionality and add measurement capability at a later date. The low-cost instrument (starting at $26,000 US) is a faster and easier-to-use alternative than more costly racks of dedicated equipment.
