EB MIMO OTA Test System Implemented Successfully At NEC CASIO Mobile Communications

EB Propsim® MIMO OTA Test System verifies the true performance of NEC CASIO Mobile Communications' LTE devices

OULU, Finland, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Elektrobit (EB) (Elektrobit Corporation NASDAQ-OMX: EBC1V), a developer of cutting-edge embedded technology solutions for the wireless and automotive industries, announces the successful implementation of the MIMO Over-The-Air (OTA) test system at NEC CASIO Mobile Communications, Japan's premier technology company, based on EB Propsim F8 radio channel emulators and an anechoic chamber. NEC CASIO Mobile Communications uses this advanced test system to test and measure the RF performance and data throughput of NEC CASIO Mobile Communications' multi-antenna and MIMO mobile devices, such as LTE terminals.

Conventional conductive (cabled) test systems are not adequate for performance testing of wireless MIMO terminal devices because they cannot measure the multi-antenna effects. EB MIMO OTA testing technology creates user-defined, realistic and sophisticated radio channel environment around the wireless device inside the anechoic chamber and thus allows for measurement and testing without cable intrusion into the tested device.  The same EB MIMO OTA technology can be used for testing all wireless handheld devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers. The EB Propsim radio channel emulator using the EB-patented file-based emulation principle and the anechoic chamber ensures 100 percent control and repeatability of the testing environment. This enables developers of multi-antenna and MIMO terminal devices to verify the true product performance and thus create products better meeting end user requirements.

NEC CASIO Mobile Communications is known to be committed to bringing the best performing wireless devices to the world, with focused attention on research and development. For this, the EB MIMO OTA test system based on EB Propsim radio channel emulator enables NEC CASIO Mobile Communications to quantitatively assess the RF performance of their products and enables an efficient R&D process. The establishment of this test system helps NEC CASIO Mobile Communications to further strengthen its market position in Japan and in the world as the leading LTE terminal supplier.

"As the forerunner in the field of radio channel research, modeling and emulation, EB has been diligently developing test solutions for the wireless ecosystem. We enjoyed the cooperation with the competent NEC CASIO Mobile Communications team; the entire definition, delivery and implementation process has been highly efficient and smooth. We are happy to see that the test system has contributed to NEC CASIO Mobile Communications' innovation and product development", said Dr. Yu Gao, sales director of EB's Asia-Pacific Wireless Business Segment.
