4.12.2. CW mode power level requirements
4.12.2.1.DOCSIS Requirements for CW mode 1) A CMTS or EQAM MUST provide a test mode of operation, for out-of-service testing, configured for N channels, but generating one-CW-per-channel, one channel at a time at the center frequency of the selected channel; all other of the combined channels are suppressed. One purpose for this test mode is to support one method for testing the phase noise requirements of Table A-2. As such, the generation of the CW test tone SHOULD exercise the signal generation chain to the fullest extent practicable, in such manner as to exhibit phase noise characteristics typical of actual operational performance; for example, repeated selection of a constellation symbol with power close to the constellation RMS level would seemingly exercise much of the modulation and up-conversion chain in a realistic manner. The test mode MUST be capable of generating the CW tone over the full range of Center Frequency in Table A-2. 2) A CMTS or EQAM MUST provide a test mode of operation for out-of-service testing, generating one-CWper-channel, at the center frequency of the selected channel, with all other N – 1 of the combined channels active and containing valid data modulation at operational power levels. One purpose for this test mode is to support one method for testing the phase noise requirements of Table A-2. As such, the generation of the CW test tone SHOULD exercise the signal generation chain to the fullest extent practicable, in such manner as to exhibit phase noise characteristics typical of actual operational performance. For example, a repeated selection of a constellation symbol, with power close to the constellation RMS level, would seemingly exercise much of the modulation and up conversion chain in a realistic manner. For this test mode, it is acceptable that all channels operate at the same average power, including each of the N – 1 channels in valid operation, and the single channel with a CW tone at its center frequency. The test mode MUST be capable of generating the CW tone over the full range of Center Frequency in Table A-2.

4.12.3. CW mode power test procedure
4.12.3.1.For each combination of frequency, power, and number of QAMs measure the CW tone power, and the block power.

Th is test will verify the ability of the modulator to generate modulated carriers in the specified range with distortion energy emissions tha t conform to the required level in the Data over cable interface specification, Table 6-5 (Document reference DRFI). The notation “dBc” denotes decibels relative to the strongest carrier in th e channel block.

4.16.3. DRFI-05.0 Instructions for Margin to PSA Noise Floor
The worst-case measurements (minimum TX Levels) for, Quad and Eight QAM transmission Noise Floor will be less th an 10dB from the Instrument Noise Floor, in some test cases. Th is requires a correction to the result, to factor out the addition of the instrument noise floor, with the BEQ noise floor being measured. There is also a calibration for the Tester Signal Path a ttenuation over the frequency range. The DRFI DOCSIS Downstream Tester makes these calibrations and adjustments as part of the automated test. 4.16.3.1.PSA Noise Floor Margin to Min TX Noise Floor Requirements

4.18.1. DRFI-08.0 Test Conditions Introduction:
Th is test verifies th a t the EQAM downstream phase noise meets the DRFI compliant device specifications stated in table 6-3 of the DRFI specifica tion, and in the RF, Safety and EMC requirements for Korean market specification. In order to measure phase noise, an EQAM must provide a test mode of operation, for out-of-service testing, generating one-CW-per channel, one channel at a time, at the center frequency of the selected channels. This test also verifies such ability of a DRFI compliant device. • • • In the test mode, the EQAM generates one-CW carrier per channel, one channel at a time. The CW carrier is located at the center frequency of the selected channel. The other N-1 channels in the block are selectable to be either all off or all normal

4.18.1.1.Run each test at -5, 22, and 55 C ambient temperatures. 4.18.1.2.Use DOCSIS Test Mode MIB to set the TX output into the required test mode for each test. • • cwOnOthersOff(5), cwOnOthersNormal(6)

4.28.1. Test

Conditions for Modulation Change w/ Chassis Reset

Introduction:
Th is test verifies th a t the system software manages the BBQ so th a t during the period of a BEQ6200/BBQv8.3 modulation change with chassis reset the TX output is muted. The test verifies th a t TX output comes up at the set frequency, modulation type, power level, and th a t the RF spectrum does not have any momentary viola ti ons to the noise floor requirements, during the power up. 4.28.1.1.Run each test at 0, 22, and 50 C ambient temperatures. 4.28.1.2.S ingle QAM, QAM256, Annex “B” 4.28.1.3. Power Level 61dBmV

4.28.2. Modulation Change w/ Chassis Reset Spectral

Purity Requirement
4.28.2.1.Transmitter to stay in MUTE mode until LO lock complete, a ll boot up transitions are completed, and the set level/frequency are at t he correct configuration. 4.28.2.2. BigBand Transmit Spectrum Requirements, must be met so th a t any momentary spurious or noise products do not exceed the requirements.

RF Specifications
QAM BW Modulation Broadband spurious lower then dBc per total block power, 50 to 900 MHz Broadband noise for average noise for all channels outside ± 24/32 MHz from the band edges: l comply with the following levels: Spurious noise attenuation between 1 to 3 GHz
