12. Unwanted RF Emissions due to Modulation
12.1 Test purpose
To verify that unwanted RF emissions due to modulation shall comply with the conformance requirements.
12.2 Conformance requirement
The unwanted emissions of EUT, as measured, shall not be greater than the power levels stated in table below:
M is the EUT transmit channel:
Y=M 1, emission power 160 W
Y=M 2, emission power 1 W
Y=M 3, emission power 40nW
Y= at any other channel, emission power 20nW
12.3 Method of measurement
a. If the EUT has an external antenna connector then this shall be used to connect the EUT to the LT. Otherwise, the transmitted signal shall be applied to the LT via a coupling device which provides the appropriate signal level to the system. The analyzing system in the LT shall be operated under the following conditions:
Frequency sweep: 1MHz
Resolution bandwidth: 100KHz
Video bandwidth: greater than resolution bandwidth
Peak hold: on
Sweep time: greater than 12secs
Filtering type: synchronously tuned
The total sample time used for measurement is 60% to 80% of the duration of the physical packet, starting before 25% of the slot time has expired but after the transmission of the synchronization word. The LT shall determine the start of the physical packet (bit p0) transmitted by the EUT.
b. The LT shall place the EUT in a mode whereby the EUT is positioned in a LT specified slot and RF channel c=5. If so equipped, the handover function in the EUT shall be disabled.
c. The EUT shall be placed in a test mode whereby it performs the loopback function.
d. Select system simulator for the unwanted RF emissions due to modulation test mode described as in TBR 6. A test modulation signal D-M2 is generated by the LT.
e. Using the analyzing system, a measurement of the EUT's transmitted power on channel M is made during the sampling time. This power measurement shall be called Pref.
f. Using the analyzing system, a measurement of the EUT's transmitted power during the sampling time on channel
M-3 shall be called Prm-3 and recorded in dB as a value relative to Pref.
M-2 shall be called Prm-2 and recorded in dB as a value relative to Pref.
M-1 shall be called Prm-1 and recorded in dB as a value relative to Pref.
M+1 shall be called Prm+1 and recorded in dB as a value relative to Pref.
M+2 shall be called Prm+2 and recorded in dB as a value relative to Pref.
M+3 shall be called Prm+3 and recorded in dB as a value relative to Pref.
g. Using the measured value of normal transmitted power, NTP. The LT shall calculate the power emissions on adjacent channel:
dB (P emissions on channel M-1)= dB (NTPm) + dB ( P rm-1)
h. The values calculated in g. shall be converted from dBm to Watts.
i. Display the results on the screen and print the measurement results.
j. Steps b. to i. shall be repeated for RF channels c=2 and 9.
12.4 Test requirement
The test conditions are given in Annex A. The measurement arrangement is given in Annex B. The test shall take place at a test site or in a test fixture. If the EUT has an antenna connector then it shall be used to connect the EUT to LT.
