Software slashes mobile device RF test times
Aeroflex says that the latest upgrade to its Lector software provides dramatic improvements in the speed of mobile device RF tests in service centres. Lector 7 software achieves a remarkable doubling in LTE test speed for a range of mobile devices. Test times for a reference multi-band mobile device* using the Aeroflex 7100 LTE Digital Radio Test Set with Lector 7 have been improved by an average of 53%.
It now takes only 3 minutes 5 seconds to complete the full set of LTE tests with Lector 7 as compared with 6½ minutes with the previous version, Lector 6.83.
For a full test script covering multiple 2G/3G/4G bands, test time is reduced from ten minutes to less than six minutes, a saving of over 40% in test time.
The 2G/3G/4G final tests were performed using a 7100 for LTE and an Aeroflex 4400 Mobile Phone Tester for 2G/3G, although a 2201 Service Tester can also be used in place of the 4400.
