Metoder för uteffektskalibrering av en EGPRS mobilplattform (Swedish)
This thesis deals with output power calibration of a mobile platform that supports EGPRS.Two different topics are examined. First some different measurement methods are compared concerning cost efficiency, accuracy, and speed and later measurements are carried out on a mobile platform.
The output power from the mobile platform is controlled by three parameters and the influence on the output power when varying those parameters is investigated and presented. Furthermore, two methods of improving the speed of the calibration are presented.
The first one aims to decrease the number of bursts to average over as much as possible. The conclusion is that 10-20 bursts are enough for GMSK modulation and about five bursts for 8PSK modulation. The purpose of the second investigation is to examine the possibility to measure the output power in one modulation and frequency band, and then calculate the output power in the other bands. The conclusion in this case is that, based on the units investigated, it is possible for some values of the parameters and in some frequency bands. However, more units need to be included in the basic data for decision-making and it is possible that the hardware variation is too large.
