EB, Elektrobit (News - Alert) Corporation, which has been in the forefront of the designing and developing of state-of-the-art wireless products and systems, has reportedly expanded its offerings in the area of radio channel emulation. Building on its international radio channel research and solid experience in embedded technology solutions for the wireless and automotive industries, the company has launched EB Propsim FS8 radio channel emulator for testing the wireless performance of mobile devices and chipsets.
By providing higher data capacity to the end user, MIMO Technology enables mobile operators to upgrade their services from 2G and 3G to 4G and LTE (News - Alert) networks. Product developers are tasked with making sure that the ultimate MIMO gain is achieved. In MIMO technology, the radio channel characteristics are heavily exploited therefore requiring sophisticated radio channel emulation in 4G LTE mobile device and chipset development.
Furthermore, the EB Propsim FS8 provides accurate and realistic MIMO radio channel modeling for 4G LTE product developers seeking to create mobile devices that truly meet both operator and consumer expectations, EB explained in a statement.
EB is committed to continuously upgrading the EB Propsim radio channel emulators line-up in response to the new requirements set by the wireless industry. The latest launch is the outcome of this continuous development effort, the company said in a press reelase.
The EB Propsim FS8 has been developed as a compact-sized MIMO emulator for the testing of 2G, 3G and 4G LTE technologies, and is compatible with both conformance and operator-specific test cases. The ability to easily evaluate the true product performance against operator requirements in the laboratory with the EB Propsim FS8 decreases the amount of field testing needed, which often yields to remarkable savings in the product development process.
“The EB Propsim FS8 complements our product offering in the area of radio channel emulation. Whereas the recently launched EB Propsim F32 is targeted for the network infrastructure and defense & security customers, the EB Propsim FS8 is designed for testing mobile devices and chipsets. With the FS8, we can provide the convenience of compact size and smooth integration into mobile device test systems at an affordable price,” vice president of Test Tools at EB, Janne Kolu, explained in a statement.
Last month, Elektrobit Corporation (News - Alert) revealed that the company would be demonstrating LTE Band 14 functionality and other updates on the EB Specialized Device Platform, the company's award-winning Android (News - Alert)-based mobile device platform that enables vertical markets, such as public safety, to quickly and efficiently roll-out customized mobile devices to meet specific industry functional or performance requirements.
