ANRITSU MT8000A-033 option modular RF hardware upgrade for MT8000A Radio Communication Test Station leverages the flexible architecture of the MT8000A mainframe. RF module can be installed in new or existing units to facilitate extended all-in-one 5G NR test coverage for highly efficient verification of device and chipsets. Module supports extension of FR1 band to 7.126GHz providing a broad spectrum of coverage from 0.4GHz. Product features a built-in RF transceiver that provides up to 16 Tx and 8 Rx. It supports 5G carrier aggregation over four different bands for 5G 4×4 MIMO Standalone (SA) and New Radio Dual Connectivity (NR-DC), which combines Frequency Range 1 (FR1) and Frequency Range 2 (FR2) component carriers to achieve higher bandwidth.
