A5.1 Introduction

3GPP51.010-1Mobile Station (MS) conformance specificationPart 1: Conformance specificationTS

A5.1.1 General

The test equipment is either an equipment or assembly of equipments which enables the tests described in the present document to be conducted.

This annex describes requirements for the test equipment which cannot be derived from and which are assumed in, the conformance test descriptions described in the present document.

Specifically stimulus setting and measurement uncertainties are defined.

A5.1.2 Test equipment terms

The term "System Simulator" (SS) is used to describe the complete suite of test equipment required to perform the tests in the present document when interacting with the following MS interfaces:

– Antenna (Connector or radiated);

– Acoustic;

– Data Port(s);

– Power supply;

– DAI.

NOTE: To perform a sub-set of tests, the SS may be simplified accordingly.

The term "SIM simulator" is used to describe the test equipment required to interact with the SIM/ME interface.

A "test SIM" has the physical characteristics of a standard SIM card, (see 3GPP TS 11.11) with specific parameters defined in annex 3.

A5.1.3 Confidence level

All uncertainty values stated in this annex are quoted for a Confidence Level of 95 %.
