R&S®CMWrun - RF preconformance testing solution

Sequencer Software Tool

T&M solution

When the test focus is on preconformance RF testing in line with the specification rather than validation testing, the right choice is the R&S®CMW500 RF tester, remotely controlled by R&S®CMWrun

Using a standalone R&S®CMW500, and with just a few configuration clicks for bands, channels and bandwidth, the tool provides a comprehensive result report that gives the user a first impression of in-band compliance. This provides beneficial knowledge in the very early stage of verification, before doing more complex system tests or validation.

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.
