Key facts

  • Frequency range from 30 MHz to 12.75 / 26 / 40 GHz
  • Includes signalling for GSM (2G), WCDMA (3G), LTE (4G), 5G, WLAN and Bluetooth
  • Unique technique shifts to ideal dynamic range for test receiver
  • Measurement up to 325 GHz for 5G FR2 with high sensitivity of -40 dBm/MHz

The R&S®TS8996 RSE test system is designed for EMI and radiated spurious emission testing on wireless devices in semi-anechoic or fully anechoic chambers. The modular design makes it easy to extend the system to include new communications technologies. Typical devices under test include mobile phones or radio sets along with radiated measurements of other short-range devices. Standards require a wide range of test setups and a wide and high frequency range (up to 40 GHz). ESW or FSW frequency ranges are extended up to 325 GHz with option B21 using receive units TC-RSE for 5G FR2. Dedicated RSE test routines are also covered for this frequency range.

Features & benefits

Supported standards

Compliant with relevant RSE and EMI standards for wireless devices 

The RSE and EMI testing are covered for the following standards:
ETSI EN 300 607-1
ETSI EN 301 908-1
ETSI EN 301 908-25
ETSI EN 300 328
ETSI EN 301 893
ETSI EN 303 687 
ETSI EN 300 220
ETSI EN 301 489 (incl. sub articles)
FCC CFR47 part 15
FCC CFR47 part 20


Modular system design

The test system can be easily adapted to customer requirements for supported technologies, standards, frequency ranges or combinations with other EMC tests. Existing EMC test systems can be upgraded to TS8996  supported wireless device testing.

Dynamic range shift

Unique measurement procedure by shifting dynamic range

Using notch filters for carrier suppression is not convenient in a large number of the bands and bandwidths used by modern communications technologies, such as WCDMA (3G), LTE (4G) and 5G FR1. The R&S®OSP-B155G plug-in module can measure radiated spurious emissions for all bands and bandwidths in one compact unit. Near the carrier, signal is shifted to the ideal dynamic range for the test receiver to measure spurious emissions in the presence of the carrier.

Supported Technologies

All common technologies supported

The main technologies for integrated signaling with CMW/CMX communications testers:
- GSM (2G)
- WCDMA (3G)
- LTE (4G)
- 5G FR1
- 5G FR2
- WLAN incl. WIFI6
- Bluetooth
DUT controls or their counterparts in the ELEKTRA test software monitoring interface can support other technologies. 

EMS extension

Easily extendable to EMS measurements including audio breakthrough

The RSE and EMI test system can be easily expanded to include a commercial EMS test system. BER, FER and PER can be used for monitoring depending on the technology. Audio breakthrough measurements (ABT) are also available for devices with audio links.

Turnkey solution

The TS8996 is available as a turnkey solution

The complexity of radiated measurements for wireless devices means that purchasing the TS8996 as a turnkey solution can quickly get operations up and running. The core TS8996 components can also be purchased independently by experienced customers

Microwave extension

5G FR2 device support with measurements up to 200 GHz

5G FR2 RSE measurements in line with ETSI EN 301 908-25 and FCC are supported with a sensitivity of -40 dBm/MHz at 1 m testing distance in the frequency range from 41 GHz to 200 GHz. Special tests cover automated measurements of 5G FR2 spurious emissions in line with FCC incl. TRP for RSE.
