6.5.2 Transmit modulation

36.521-13GPPEvolved Universal Terrestrial Radio Access (E-UTRA)Part 1: Conformance testingRadio transmission and receptionRelease 17TSUser Equipment (UE) conformance specification

Transmit modulation defines the modulation quality for expected in-channel RF transmissions from the UE. This transmit modulation limit is specified in terms of:

– Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) for the allocated resources blocks (RB),

– EVM equalizer spectrum flatness derived from the equalizer coefficients generated by the EVM measurement process

– Carrier leakage

In-band emissions for the non-allocated RB

6.5.2.1 Error Vector Magnitude (EVM)

6.5.2.1.1 Test Purpose

The Error Vector Magnitude is a measure of the difference between the reference waveform and the measured waveform. This difference is called the error vector. Before calculating the EVM the measured waveform is corrected by the sample timing offset and RF frequency offset. Then the carrier leakage shall be removed from the measured waveform before calculating the EVM.

The measured waveform is further modified by selecting the absolute phase and absolute amplitude of the Tx chain. The EVM result is defined after the front-end IDFT as the square root of the ratio of the mean error vector power to the mean reference power expressed as a %.

The basic EVM measurement interval in the time domain is one preamble sequence for the PRACH and is one slot for the PUCCH and PUSCH in the time domain. When the PUSCH or PUCCH transmission slot is shortened due to multiplexing with SRS, the EVM measurement interval is reduced by one symbol, accordingly. Likewise, when the PUSCH starting position is modified or when second last symbol is the ending symbol of the PUSCH sub-frame for Frame Structure Type 3, the EVM measurement interval is reduced accordingly. The PUSCH or PUCCH EVM measurement interval is also reduced when the mean power, modulation or allocation between slots is expected to change. In the case of PUSCH transmission, the measurement interval is reduced by a time interval equal to the sum of 5 μs and the applicable exclusion period defined in subclause 6.3.4, adjacent to the boundary where the power change is expected to occur. The PUSCH exclusion period is applied to the signal obtained after the front-end IDFT. In the case of PUCCH transmission, the PUCCH EVM measurement interval is reduced by one symbol adjacent to the slot boundary.

6.5.2.1.2 Test applicability

This test case applies to all types of E-UTRA UE release 8 and forward.

6.5.2.1.3 Minimum conformance requirements

EVM measurements are evaluated for 10 uplink sub-frames excluding any transient period for the average EVM case, and 60 subframes excluding any transient period for the reference signal EVM case, the different modulations schemes shall not exceed the values specified in Table 6.5.2.1.3-1 for the parameters defined in Table 6.5.2.1.3-2. For EVM evaluation purposes, [all PRACH preamble formats 0-4 and] all PUCCH formats 1, 1a, 1b, 2, 2a and 2b are considered to have the same EVM requirement as QPSK modulated.

Test procedure for PUSCH:

1.1. SS sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via PDCCH DCI format 0 for C_RNTI to schedule the UL RMC according to Table 6.5.2.1.4.1-1. Since the UE has no payload data to send, the UE transmits uplink MAC padding bits on the UL RMC.

1.2 Send continuously uplink power control "up" commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until the UE transmits at PUMAX level.

1.3 Measure the EVM and using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E).

1.4 Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE output power is –36.8dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -36.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

1.5 Measure the EVM and using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E).

Test procedure for PUCCH:

2.1 PUCCH are set according to Table 6.5.2.1.4.1-2.

2.2 SS transmits PDSCH via PDCCH DCI format 1A for C_RNTI to transmit the DL RMC according to Table 6.5.2.1.4.1-2. The SS sends downlink MAC padding bits on the DL RMC. The transmission of PDSCH will make the UE send uplink ACK/NACK using PUCCH. There is no PUSCH transmission.

2.3 SS send appropriate TPC commands for PUCCH to the UE until the UE transmit PUCCH at PUMAX level.

2.4 Measure PUCCH EVM using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E).

2.5 Send the appropriate TPC commands for PUCCH to the UE until the UE transmits PUCCH at -36.8dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -36.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.6 Measure PUCCH EVM using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E).

Test procedure for PRACH:

3.1 The SS shall set RS EPRE according to Table 6.5.2.1.4.1-3.

3.2 PRACH is set according to Table 6.5.2.1.4.1-3.

3.3 The SS shall signal a Random Access Preamble ID via a PDCCH order to the UE and initiate a Non-contention based Random Access procedure

3.4 The UE shall send the signalled preamble to the SS.

3.5 In response to the preamble, the SS shall transmit a random access response not corresponding to the transmitted random access preamble, or send no response.

3.6 The UE shall consider the random access response reception not successful then re-transmit the preamble with the calculated PRACH transmission power.

3.7 Repeat step 5 and 6 until the SS collect enough PRACH preambles (2 preambles for format 0 and 10 preambles for format 4). Measure the EVM in PRACH channel using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E).

Figure 6.5.2.1A.4.2-1: Test pattern

NOTE 1: In TDD the free subframes are special subframes or DL, in FDD the free subframes are OFF.

1. SS sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via PDCCH DCI format 0 for C_RNTI to schedule the PUSCH… Since the UE has no payload data to send, the UE transmits uplink MAC padding bits on the UL RMC. The initial uplink RB allocation is 12. Send appropriate TPC commands for PUSCH to the UE to ensure the UE transmits PUSCH at 0dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 0dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2. Schedule the UE’s PUSCH data transmission as described in Figure 6.5.2.1A.4.2-1 for 161) active time slots with an uplink RB allocation alternating pattern as described in table 6.5.2.1A.4.1-1 while transmitting 0dB TPC command for PUSCH via the PDCCH.

3. Measure the EVM using Global In-Channel Tx-Test. The averaging across 161) timeslots is done across mixed RB allocations, as illustrated in Figure 6.5.2.1A.4.2-1

NOTE 2: Averaging across 16 timeslots is used to represent each type of transition equally in the average.

6.5.2.1EA.1.4.2 Test procedure

Test procedure for PUSCH:

1.1. SS sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via MPDCCH DCI format 6-0A for C_RNTI to schedule the UL RMC according to Table 6.5.2.1EA.4.1-1. Since the UE has no payload data to send, the UE transmits uplink MAC padding bits on the UL RMC.

1.2 Send continuously uplink power control "up" commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until the UE transmits at PUMAX level.

1.3 Measure the EVM and using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) according to the UE’s declaration on the position of carrier centre frequency.

1.4 Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE output power is –36.8dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -36.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

1.5 Measure the EVM and using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) according to the UE’s declaration on the position of carrier centre frequency.

Test procedure for PUCCH:

2.1 PUCCH are set according to Table 6.5.2.1EA.4.1-2.

2.2 SS transmits PDSCH via MPDCCH DCI format 6-1A for C_RNTI to transmit the DL RMC according to Table 6.5.2.1EA.4.1-2. The SS sends downlink MAC padding bits on the DL RMC. The transmission of PDSCH will make the UE send uplink ACK/NACK using PUCCH. There is no PUSCH transmission.

2.3 SS send appropriate TPC commands for PUCCH to the UE until the UE transmit PUCCH at PUMAX level.

2.4 Measure PUCCH EVM using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) according to the UE’s declaration on the position of carrier centre frequency.

2.5 Send the appropriate TPC commands for PUCCH to the UE until the UE transmits PUCCH at -36.8dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -36.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.6 Measure PUCCH EVM using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) according to the UE’s declaration on the position of carrier centre frequency.

Test procedure for PRACH:

3.1 The SS shall set RS EPRE according to Table 6.5.2.1EA.4.1-3.

3.2 PRACH is set according to Table 6.5.2.1EA.4.1-3.

3.3 The SS shall signal a Random Access Preamble ID via a MPDCCH order to the UE and initiate a Non-contention based Random Access procedure

3.4 The UE shall send the signalled preamble to the SS.

3.5 In response to the preamble, the SS shall transmit a random access response not corresponding to the transmitted random access preamble, or send no response.

3.6 The UE shall consider the random access response reception not successful then re-transmit the preamble with the calculated PRACH transmission power.

3.7 Repeat step 5 and 6 until the SS collect enough PRACH preambles (2 preambles for format 0 and 10 preambles for format 4). Measure the EVM in PRACH channel using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) according to the UE’s declaration on the position of carrier centre frequency.

Figure 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.2-1: Test pattern for FDD and TDD

Figure 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.2-2: Test pattern for HD-FDD

NOTE 1: In TDD the free subframes are special subframes or DL, in FDD and HD-FDD the free subframes are OFF.

1. SS sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via MPDCCH DCI format 6-0A for C_RNTI to schedule the PUSCH. Since the UE has no payload data to send, the UE transmits uplink MAC padding bits on the UL RMC. The initial uplink RB allocation is 6 or 5. Send appropriate TPC commands for PUSCH to the UE to ensure the UE transmits PUSCH at 0dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 0dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2. Schedule the UE’s PUSCH data transmission as described in Figure 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.2-1 and 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.2-2 for 161) active time slots with an uplink RB allocation alternating pattern as described in table 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.1-1 while transmitting 0dB TPC command for PUSCH via the MPDCCH.

3. Measure the EVM using Global In-Channel Tx-Test according to the UE’s declaration on the position of carrier centre frequency. The averaging across 161) timeslots is done across mixed RB allocations, as illustrated in Figure 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.2-1 and 6.5.2.1EA.2.4.2-2.

NOTE 1: Averaging across 16 timeslots is used to represent each type of transition equally in the average.

6.5.2.1F.1 Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) for category NB1 and NB2

6.5.2.1F.1.1 Test Purpose

The Error Vector Magnitude is a measure of the difference between the reference waveform and the measured waveform. This difference is called the error vector. Before calculating the EVM the measured waveform is corrected by the sample timing offset and RF frequency offset. Then the carrier leakage shall be removed from the measured waveform before calculating the EVM.

The measured waveform is further modified by selecting the absolute phase and absolute amplitude of the Tx chain. The EVM result is defined after the front-end IDFT as the square root of the ratio of the mean error vector power to the mean reference power expressed as a %.

6.5.2.1F.1.2 Test applicability

This test case applies to all types of E-UTRA FDD UE release 13 and forward of category NB1.

2.4 In response to the preamble, the SS shall transmit a random access response not corresponding to the transmitted random access preamble, or send no response.

2.5 The UE shall consider the random access response reception not successful then re-transmit the preamble with the calculated NPRACH transmission power.

2.6 Repeat step 4 and 5 until the SS collect enough NPRACH preambles (64 preambles). Measure the EVM in NPRACH channel using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E).

NOTE 1: For configuration IDs applicable to UE depending on UE capability in Test Configuration Table with different UL sub-carrier spacing, the SS shall release the connection through State 3A-NB and finally ensure the UE is in State 2A-NB with CP CIoT Optimisation according to TS 36.508 [7] clause 8.1.5 using the appropriate UL subcarrier spacing in Random Access Response message.

6.5.2.1G Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) for V2X Communication

6.5.2.1G.0 Minimum conformance requirements

For V2X physical channels PSCCH, PSSCH and PSBCH, the Error Vector Magnitude requirements shall be as specified for PUSCH in subclause 6.5.2.1 for the corresponding modulation and transmission bandwidth.

For V2X sidelink physical channels PSCCH, PSSCH and PSBCH, the Error Vector Magnitude requirements shall be as specified separately for PSSCH and PSCCH for the corresponding modulation and transmission bandwidth. The measurement period for EVM of PSSCH and PSCCH is 15 subframes. The measurement period for reference signal EVM is 30 subframes. When V2X transmissions are shortened due to transmission gap of 1 symbol at the end of the subframe, the EVM measurement interval is reduced by one symbol, accordingly.

For PSBCH the duration over which EVM is averaged shall be 24 subframes.

For intra-band contiguous multi-carrier operation the EVM requirement shall apply for each component carrier.

When UE is configured for simultaneous E-UTRA V2X sidelink and E-UTRA uplink transmissions for inter-band E-UTRA V2X / E-UTRA bands specified in Table 5.2G-2, the requirements in subclause 6.5.2.1G.0 apply for V2X sidelink transmission and the requirements in subclause 6.5.2.1.3 apply for the E-UTRA uplink transmission.

The normative reference for this requirement is TS 36.101 [2] clause 6.5.2G and 6.5.2G.1.

6.5.2.1G.1 Error Vector Magnitude (EVM) for V2X Communication / Non-concurrent with E-UTRA uplink transmissions

Before calculating the EVM the measured waveform is corrected by the sample timing offset and RF frequency offset. Then the carrier leakage shall be removed from the measured waveform before calculating the EVM.

The measured waveform is further modified by selecting the absolute phase and absolute amplitude of the Tx chain. The EVM result is defined after the front-end IDFT as the square root of the ratio of the mean error vector power to the mean reference power expressed as a %.

6.5.2.1G.3.5 Test requirement

6.5.2.1_s Error Vector Magnitude for subslot/slot TTI

6.5.2.1_s.1 Test purpose

The Error Vector Magnitude is a measure of the difference between the reference waveform and the measured waveform. This difference is called the error vector. Before calculating the EVM the measured waveform is corrected by the sample timing offset and RF frequency offset. Then the carrier leakage shall be removed from the measured waveform before calculating the EVM.

The measured waveform is further modified by selecting the absolute phase and absolute amplitude of the Tx chain. The EVM result is defined after the front-end IDFT as the square root of the ratio of the mean error vector power to the mean reference power expressed as a %.

The basic EVM measurement interval in the time domain is one preamble sequence for the PRACH, and as specified in Table 6.5.2.1_s-1 for the PUCCH and PUSCH in the time domain. When the PUSCH or PUCCH transmission slot or subslot is shortened due to multiplexing with SRS, the EVM measurement interval is reduced by one symbol, accordingly. Likewise, when the PUSCH starting position is modified or when second last symbol is the ending symbol of the PUSCH subframe for Frame Structure Type 3, the EVM measurement interval is reduced accordingly. The PUSCH or PUCCH EVM measurement interval is also reduced when the mean power, modulation or allocation between slots or subslots is expected to change. In the case of PUSCH transmission, the measurement interval is reduced by a time interval equal to the sum of 5 μs and the applicable exclusion period defined in subclause 6.3.4, adjacent to the boundary where the power change is expected to occur. The PUSCH exclusion period is applied to the signal obtained after the front-end IDFT. In the case of PUCCH transmission with power change, the PUCCH EVM measurement interval is reduced by one symbol adjacent to the boundary where the power change is expected to occur.

6.5.2.2 Carrier leakage

6.5.2.2.1 Test Purpose

Carrier leakage expresses itself as unmodulated sine wave with the carrier frequency or centre frequency of aggregated transmission bandwidth configuration. It is an interference of approximately constant amplitude and independent of the amplitude of the wanted signal. Carrier leakage interferes with the centre sub carriers of the UE under test (if allocated), especially, when their amplitude is small. The measurement interval is defined over one slot in the time domain.

The purpose of this test is to exercise the UE transmitter to verify its modulation quality in terms of carrier leakage.

6.5.2.2.2 Test applicability

This test case applies to all types of E-UTRA UE release 8 and forward.

6.5.2.2.3 Minimum conformance requirements

The relative carrier leakage power is a power ratio of the additive sinusoid waveform and the modulated waveform. The relative carrier leakage power shall not exceed the values specified in Table 6.5.2.2.3-1 or 6.5.2.2.3-2.

6.5.2.3 In-band emissions for non allocated RB

6.5.2.3.1 Test Purpose

The in-band emissions are a measure of the interference falling into the non-allocated resources blocks

The in-band emission is defined as the average across 12 sub-carrier and as a function of the RB offset from the edge of the allocated UL transmission bandwidth. The in-band emission is measured as the ratio of the UE output power in a non–allocated RB to the UE output power in an allocated RB. The basic in-band emissions measurement interval is defined over one slot in the time domain. When the PUSCH or PUCCH transmission slot is shortened due to multiplexing with SRS, the in-band emissions measurement interval is reduced by one SC-FDMA symbol, accordingly. Likewise, when the PUSCH starting position is modified or when the second last symbol is the ending symbol of the PUSCH sub-frame for Frame Structure Type 3, the in-band emissions measurement interval is reduced accordingly.

6.5.2.3.2 Test applicability

This test case applies to all types of E-UTRA UE release 8 and forward.

6.5.2.3.3 Minimum conformance requirements

The relative in-band emission shall not exceed the values specified in Tables 6.5.2.3.3-1 or 6.5.2.3.3-2.

6.5.2.3.4.2 Test procedure

Test procedure for PUSCH:

1.1 SS sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via PDCCH DCI format 0 for C_RNTI to schedule the UL RMC according to Table 6.5.2.3.4.1-1. Since the UE has no payload and no loopback data to send the UE sends uplink MAC padding bits on the UL RMC

1.2 Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE output power is 13.2 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 13.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

1.3 Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E)

1.4 Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE output power is 3.2 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 3.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.2 Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information for PUCCH to the UE until UE output power is 13.2 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 13.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.3 Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E)

2.4 Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information for PUCCH to the UE until UE output power is 3.2 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 3.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.5 Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E)

2.6 Send the appropriate TPC commands for PUCCH in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE output power is -26.8 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -26.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.7 Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E)

2.8 Send the appropriate TPC commands for PUCCH in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE output power is to -36.8 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -36.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

2.9 Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E)

6.5.2.3G In-band emissions for non-allocated RB for V2X Communication

6.5.2.3G.1 In-band emissions for non-allocated RB for V2X Communication / Non-concurrent with E-UTRA uplink transmissions
6.5.2.3G.1.1 Test Purpose

The in-band emissions are a measure of the interference falling into the non-allocated resources blocks, this is to verify that the inband emissions of V2X sidelink non-concurrent with E-UTRAN uplink transmissions satisfy the minimum requirements listed in 6.5.2.3G.1.3.

6.5.2.3G.1.2 Test applicability

This test case applies to all types of UE that supports V2X Sidelink communication and Band 47.

6.5.2.3G.1.3 Minimum conformance requirements

The in-band emission is defined as the average across 12 sub-carrier and as a function of the RB offset from the edge of the allocated sidelink transmission bandwidth. The in-band emission is measured as the ratio of the UE output power in a non–allocated RB to the UE output power in an allocated RB.

The basic in-band emissions measurement interval is defined over one slot in the time domain When V2X transmissions are shortened due to transmission gap of 1 symbol at the end of the subframe, the In-band emissions measurement interval is reduced by one symbol, accordingly.

For V2X sidelink physical channels PSCCH, PSSCH and PSBCH, the In-band emissions requirements shall be as specified for PUSCH in subclause 36.101[2] 6.5.2.3 for the corresponding modulation and transmission bandwidth. For intra-band contiguous multi-carrier operation the in-band emission requirement of subclause 36.101 [2] 6.5.2.3 shall apply for each component carrier.

Consequently, the relative in-band emission of each sidelink physical channel shall not exceed the values specified in Tables 6.5.2.3G.1.3.

When UE is configured for simultaneous E-UTRA V2X sidelink and E-UTRA uplink transmissions for inter-band E-UTRA V2X / E-UTRA bands specified in 36.101[2] Table 5.5G-2, the requirements in 36.101[2] subclause 6.5.2G apply for V2X sidelink transmission and the requirements in 36.101[2] subclause 6.5.2 apply for the E-UTRA uplink transmission.

For V2X sidelink physical channels PSCCH, PSSCH and PSBCH, the In-band emissions requirements shall be as specified for PUSCH in 36.101[2] subclause 6.5.2.3 for the corresponding modulation and transmission bandwidth. When V2X transmissions are shortened due to transmission gap of 1 symbol at the end of the subframe, the In-band emissions measurement interval is reduced by one symbol, accordingly.

Consequently, the relative in-band emission of each sidelink physical channel shall not exceed the values specified in Tables 6.5.2.3G.2.3-1.

1. The SS configure the PSCCH and PSSCH transmission at the PCMAX,c,V2X level of the corresponding test point to enable V2X sidelink transmission power at 4.3dBm+/-4.3dB for carrier frequency f > 5GHz.2. The SS simultaneously sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via PDCCH DCI format 0 for C_RNTI to schedule the UL RMC and V2X scheduling information via PDCCH DCI format 5A for SL_V_RNTI to schedule the V2X RMC according to Table 6.5.2.3G.2.4.1-1. Since the UE has no payload and no loopback data to send the UE sends uplink MAC padding bits on the UL and V2X RMCs.

3. Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE E-UTRA uplink output power is 3.2 dBm+/-3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 13.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz.

4. Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) on all the uplink and V2X sidelink carriers with PRB allocated. On E-UTRA carrier, the TDD slots with transient periods are not under test.

[TP2: V2X UE output power within (0,-30) dBm]

Repeat the above steps 1~4 with the exception in step3 that making sure UE E-UTRA uplink output power is -26.8 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -26.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz and the exception in step 1 that V2X sidelink transmission power is -25.5dBm+/-4.5 dB for carrier frequency f > 5GHz.

Test procedure for PSBCH

[TP1: V2X UE output power > 0dBm]

1. The SS configures PSBCH transmission at the PCMAX,c,V2X level of the corresponding test point to enable V2X sidelink transmission power at 4.3dBm+/-4.3dB for carrier frequency f > 5GHz according to table 6.5.2.3G.2.4.3-3.

2. The SS sends uplink scheduling information for each UL HARQ process via PDCCH DCI format 0 for C_RNTI to schedule the UL RMC, Since the UE has no payload and no loopback data to send the UE sends uplink MAC padding bits on the UL.

3. Send the appropriate TPC commands in the uplink scheduling information to the UE until UE E-UTRA uplink output power is 3.2 dBm+/-3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or 3.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz

4. Measure In-band emission using Global In-Channel Tx-Test (Annex E) on the uplink and V2X sidelink carrier with PRB allocated. On E-UTRA carrier, the TDD slots with transient periods are not under test.

[TP2: V2X UE output power within (0,-30) dBm]

Repeat the above steps 1~4 with the exception in step 3 that making sure UE E-UTRA uplink output power is -26.8 dBm ±3.2dB for carrier frequency f ≤ 3.0GHz or -26.5dBm ±3.5 dB for carrier frequency 3.0GHz < f ≤ 4.2GHz and the exception in step 1 that V2X UE transmission power is -25.5dBm+/-4.5 dB for carrier frequency f > 5GHz.

6.5.2.4 EVM equalizer spectrum flatness

6.5.2.4.1 Test Purpose

The zero-forcing equalizer correction applied in the EVM measurement process (as described in Annex E) must meet a spectrum flatness requirement for the EVM measurement to be valid. The EVM equalizer spectrum flatness is defined in terms of the maximum peak-to-peak ripple of the equalizer coefficients (dB) across the allocated uplink block variation in dB of the equalizer coefficients generated by the EVM measurement process. The EVM equalizer spectrum flatness requirement does not limit the correction applied to the signal in the EVM measurement process but for the EVM result to be valid, the equalizer correction that was applied must meet the EVM equalizer spectrum flatness minimum requirements. The basic measurement interval is the same as for EVM.

6.5.2.4.2 Test applicability

This test case applies to all types of E-UTRA UE release 8 and forward.

6.5.2.4.3 Minimum conformance requirements

The peak-to-peak variation of the EVM equalizer coefficients contained within the frequency range of the uplink allocation shall not exceed the maximum ripple. The EVM equalizer spectrum flatness shall not exceed the values specified in Table 6.5.2.4.3-1 for normal conditions. For uplink allocations contained within both Range 1 and Range 2, the coefficients evaluated within each of these frequency ranges shall meet the corresponding ripple requirement and the following additional requirement: the relative difference between the maximum coefficient in Range 1 and the minimum coefficient in Range 2 must not be larger than 5 dB, and the relative difference between the maximum coefficient in Range 2 and the minimum coefficient in Range 1 must not be larger than 7 dB (see Figure 6.5.2.4.3-1).

The EVM equalizer spectrum flatness shall not exceed the values specified in Table 6.5.2.4.3-2 for extreme conditions. For uplink allocations contained within both Range 1 and Range 2, the coefficients evaluated within each of these frequency ranges shall meet the corresponding ripple requirement and the following additional requirement: the relative difference between the maximum coefficient in Range 1 and the minimum coefficient in Range 2 must not be larger than 6 dB, and the relative difference between the maximum coefficient in Range 2 and the minimum coefficient in Range 1 must not be larger than 10 dB (see Figure 6.5.2.4.3-1).
