Passive Antenna Pattern Testing for 5G Beamforming Antennas

We offer 3D antenna pattern testing for 5G beamforming antennas. The testing frequency for FR1 and FR2 ranges from 400MHz to 53GHz. Testing is performed in an anechoic chamber utilizing direct far-field and near to far-field transformation methodologies.

Evaluated antenna parameters include:

  • Gain
  • Beamwidth
  • Azimuth Beam squint
  • Cross-polarization ratio
  • Tilt accuracy
  • Front to back ratio
  • First upper sidelobe suppression
  • Efficiency

AntView - Antenna Pattern Measurement Analysis and Visualization Tool

With our in-house developed antenna pattern measurement analysis and visualization tool, AntView®, you can easily examine the antenna radiation patterns. AntView® makes analysing, comparing, and storing antenna measurement results easier and more efficient.

AntView® enables fast antenna characteristics analysis. With AntView®, you can easily compare multiple antenna measurement results and present them in easy-to-understand format with colours, graphs, and parameters.

GPS Antenna Pattern Test

Our OTA test system provides accurate 3D pictures of the GNSS antenna patterns using feed-through method. In addition, we can measure antenna patterns without any cabling using Carrier-to-noise-density-ratio (CNO). Measurements are usually done in Free Space, but we can also use hand, head and body phantoms or even real people to see how your product performs in realistic, different use cases.

Antenna Test Chambers

We perform all antenna pattern measurements in our large full anechoic chambers to ensure high quality results. To measure each point, the positioning system moves the DUT (Device Under Test) relative to the measurement antenna.

Antenna Pattern Measurement Chambers

Dimensions:

  • Width: 7m
  • Length: 6m
  • Height: 7m
  • Measurement Distance: 3.4m

Frequency Range:

  • 400MHz – 53GHz

Pre-conformance spurious emissions testing from Verkotan

Pre-conformance spurious emissions testing is important during the R&D stage to ensure that the spurious emissions of a device are acceptable and under control and that the device complies with international and regional limits set by the FCC, RED and ISED. Ensuring that the spurious emissions of a device are under control can save time and money in the EMC testing stage. Read more

Near Field to Far Field Transformation

Near field to far field (NF-FF) transformation means transforming the near field antenna radiation pattern measurement to far field radiation pattern. NF-FF transformation is used in OTA testing process of large antennas since the antenna performance must be measured in far-field condition, which is possible only in huge test chambers. Continue reading to find out more information on what NF-FF transformation is and how it is done! Read more
