OULU, Finland, Nov. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --Elektrobit (EB) (Elektrobit
Corporation NASDAQ-OMX: EBC1V), a developer of cutting-edge embedded
technology solutions for the wireless and automotive industries, announces the
successful implementation of the MIMO Over-The-Air (OTA) test system at NEC
CASIO Mobile Communications, Japan's premier technology company, based on EB
Propsim F8 radio channel emulators and an anechoic chamber. NEC CASIO Mobile
Communications uses this advanced test system to test and measure the RF
performance and data throughput of NEC CASIO Mobile Communications'
multi-antenna and MIMO mobile devices, such as LTE terminals.

Conventional conductive (cabled) test systems are not adequate for performance
testing of wireless MIMO terminal devices because they cannot measure the
multi-antenna effects. EB MIMO OTA testing technology creates user-defined,
realistic and sophisticated radio channel environment around the wireless
device inside the anechoic chamber and thus allows for measurement and testing
without cable intrusion into the tested device. The same EB MIMO OTA
technology can be used for testing all wireless handheld devices such as
smartphones, tablets, and laptop computers. The EB Propsim radio channel
emulator using the EB-patented file-based emulation principle and the anechoic
chamber ensures 100 percent control and repeatability of the testing
environment. This enables developers of multi-antenna and MIMO terminal
devices to verify the true product performance and thus create products better
meeting end user requirements.

NEC CASIO Mobile Communications is known to be committed to bringing the best
performing wireless devices to the world, with focused attention on research
and development. For this, the EB MIMO OTA test system based on EB Propsim
radio channel emulator enables NEC CASIO Mobile Communications to
quantitatively assess the RF performance of their products and enables an
efficient R&D process. The establishment of this test system helps NEC CASIO
Mobile Communications to further strengthen its market position in Japan and
in the world as the leading LTE terminal supplier.

"As the forerunner in the field of radio channel research, modeling and
emulation, EB has been diligently developing test solutions for the wireless
ecosystem. We enjoyed the cooperation with the competent NEC CASIO Mobile
Communications team; the entire definition, delivery and implementation
process has been highly efficient and smooth. We are happy to see that the
test system has contributed to NEC CASIO Mobile Communications' innovation and
product development", said Dr. Yu Gao, sales director of EB's Asia-Pacific
Wireless Business Segment.
