YellowFin LTE 4G Analyzer

Download Hi-Res Image Download White Paper

YellowFin-LTE™ 4G analyzer is the world's first truly portable calibrated, demodulating LTE test receiver. This handheld unit utilizes a tablet PC as an interface in conjunction with Berkeley's precision receiver technology for complete spectrum analysis as well as LTE physical layer demodulation. The receiver sweeps the 700 MHz to 2.2 GHz or 2.0 GHz to 5.9 GHz spectrums (choose model) to within +1.5 dB accuracy measuring both primary & secondary synchronization signals for RSSI, Signal Quality/CINR and Multipath. YellowFin-LTE spectrum analysis also performs interference detection, channel clearing with trigger/synchronization modes for LTE signal frequency analysis. LTE demodulates the physical layer for Identity, Cell Identity Group, Cell Identity, Extended CP, BS Antenna Count and PBCH Channel. The optional DF (Direction Finding) Antenna allows engineers to pinpoint sources of LTE interference, rogue base stations and even nearby hackers. An internal 12-channel/satellite GPS receiver allows for geo-coded site surveys and drive-studies using optional mapping software.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does the YellowFin-LTE do WiMAX studies?
 
While the YellowFin does scan the spectrum that common 802.11 Wi-Fi and WiMAX devices operate on, it does not demodulate Wi-Fi or WiMAX packets. YellowFin was designed for 4G LTE installations, troubleshooting and interference detection.
