Today’s multi-tasking cellular UE boast powerful processors, incorporate back-lit touch-screen displays, and have amassed multiple radio receivers and transmitters that are sending and receiving data at unprecedented rates. The might and performance of these devices have one common dependency – they rely on limited battery power to keep their users simultaneously informed, entertained, in-touch and happy. Anticipating battery performance issues requires early verification testing, allowing any necessary alterations to be made during the development phase. Keysight offers a number of test solutions based on functional test demands. Our measurement knowledge and testing experience is built in to a range of test tools, so you can focus on UE verification testing rather than developing in-house test tools.
The Keysight N5974A automation scripts implement AT&Ts battery performance test plan and output results to an .xls spreadsheet formatted as an AT&T test report. The software is used in conjunction with Keysight Wireless Communications Test Sets for base-station emulation, DC power sources for battery emulation and includes all necessary server applications, enabling realistic user scenarios to be replicated in a controlled laboratory environment. With this test configuration you can make reliable, repeatable measurements without having to create complex code or program test equipment, allowing you to focus on fine-tuning the design of UE hardware, firmware and software apps for optimal current drain.
This solution is available to AT&T-approved companies. Contact your sales representative for further information.
