Hosted by ECN's Editorial Director, Alix Paultre, the Tinker's Toolbox is ECN's web-based interview show where we talk about the latest technology, components, and design issues for the electronic design engineering community.
In this episode we talk to Richard Jacklin of Anite on his insights into the emerging TD-LTE standard. Anite’s Conformance Toolset provides a suite of test cases for testing protocol stack implementation on mobile devices. The test cases are validated by both the GCF and PTCRB organisations and can be used to certify the compliance of mobile devices to the relevant industry standards, a mandatory requirement for most major mobile network operators.
