R&S®CMWrun - Simple and intuitive solution for highvolume testing

Sequencer Software Tool

T&M solution

Running tests on mobile phones in the service and repair market segment could not be easier. The R&S®CMW500 in combination with the R&S®CMW-KT050 R&S®CMWrun package offers the following highlights:

  • Select test plan by photo: the picture of the selected phone is displayed to help the operators confirm the correct model to be tested
  • Easy to operate: just follow the instructions on the screen; all tests plans are predefined; there is no need to change parameters
  • Test results and yield updated on the fly: once the tests are complete, the pass/fail results for the tests are displayed in a complete test report

The automation tool for the R&S®CMW platform

Today the R&S®CMW is the leading, most popular multistandard platform for UE testing. It is used by network operators, test houses, handset vendors and chipset manufacturers alike. The R&S®CMWrun automation software meets all requirements for executing remote control test sequences on the R&S®CMW in R&D, quality assurance, production and service for both current and future wireless equipment.

The software engine is based on the execution of test DLLs (plug-in assemblies). This architecture allows easy and straightforward configuration of test sequences without requiring specific programming knowledge of how to remotely control the instrument. It also provides full flexibility when configuring parameters and limits for the test items provided in the standard-specific R&S®CMWrun package options.

Intuitive and easy to use

The intuitive graphical user interface makes it simple for users to test wireless devices for compliance with the 3GPP protocols for various technologies.

The applications are diverse. For example, in combined user experience tests, synchronized markers show the IP throughput and current drain at a glance. During analysis, event markers help the user optimize IP throughput and battery life. At the end of the test, an easy-to-read test report containing limits, test results and verdict is generated. The report is available in csv, txt, xml and pdf format.
