H-Series – Medium-size Anechoic Chamber
Sub-6GHz and mm-Wave 5G OTA testing
0.6/3 to 40/67/110 GHz
The H-Series OTA CATR + DFF + SNF Test Ranges provide complete 3D performance assessment for 5G devices and antennas including gain, efficiency, directivity, polarization and beam characteristics for frequencies from 0.6 up to 110 GHz, capable of supporting forthcoming 5G Sub-6 GHz (from 600 MHz to 6 GHz) and mmWave (24 to 110 GHz) standardized testing in accordance to 3GPP TR38.810, TR37.842 and TR38.101. The nature of 5G Sub-6 GHz and mmWave frequencies makes OTA testing extremely sensitive to physical positioning and to phase and gain measurement accuracy, and for this reason aerospace-used technology has been incorporated into our H-Series chambers. With serrated reflectors providing unique 15µm peak-to-peak roughness in 36 cm quiet zone and high accuracy 0.03° positioners, with both roll over azimuth and roll over elevation, the H-Series are undoubtedly a best-in-its-type set of chambers, and the only ones in the market capable of testing FR1 Sub-6 GHz and FR2 mmWave frequencies in a simultaneous manner. Additionally, an optional climatic enclosure allows for OTA testing under controlled temperature and humidity conditions.
E-Series – Medium-size Reverberation Chamber
Passive, Active and Time-Domain MIMO OTA Testing
400 MHz to 6/40 GHz
The E-Series medium-size multicavity Reverberation Chambers represent the state-of-the-art in reverberation chamber technology. The E-Series can make single measurements, batch tests, protocols or campaign tests for different frequency bands, different technologies and different channel models, running overnight without human intervention. Embedded frequency-, mode-, source- and platform-stirring in a double-shielded set of cavities allow Passive MIMO (Efficiency, Correlation, Diversity Gain, MIMO Capacity and others), Active MIMO OTA (TRP, TIS, TPUT, MTS, CQI, M2TxDT, RSRP, MCL and others) and Time-Domain MIMO (DL/UL TCP/UDP/FTP TPUT, RMS DS, STD, PL, CBW, Mute%, eNodeB, VDT-OTA) measurements up to 8×8 and 8DLCC to be performed for antennas and devices up to 50cm and 50kg ranging from 2G to 5G, covering all available cellular and wireless technologies to date, including wearables devices, sound acoustic mute, WLAN and W-IoT testing. The E-Series can also test both 5G OTA in both Sub-6 GHz (FR1) and mmWave (FR2) frequency ranges for both Non-Line-of-Sight (NLoS) NIST and Line-of-Sight (LoS) scenarios up to 2×2 MIMO and 40 GHz. There is no RC in the market more advanced than the E-Series.
F-Series – Large-size Hybrid Reverberation / Anechoic Chamber
Cellular MIMO OTA, W-IoT, SR, MTC, WLAN, VDT-OTA, 5G OTA (DFF, IFF-CATR, NFTF-SNF), EMC, wearables
200 MHz to 6/40/67/110 GHz
The F-Series large-size hybrid Reverberation/Anechoic Chambers represent the most versatile OTA test system in the market today. With the same unique test features of their E-Series RC and H-Series AC counterparts, the F-Series can also test large form-factor devices under test (DUTs) like laptops, large TV sets, solar and trash compactors, drones, fridges, gNodeBs or washing and vending machines, among others. With up to 16×16, 10DLCC and DUTs up to 2m and 500 kg including full-body phantoms in a turntable, the F-Series also expands the frequency range down to cover 200 MHz up to 40 GHz for 5G OTA and the test modes to include Cellular MIMO OTA, W-IoT (LoRA, Sigfox, LTE-M), Short Range (SR), Machine-Type Communications (MTC), Virtual Drive Testing over the air (VDT-OTA), 5G OTA of gNodeBs and UEs following 3GPP 38.101, 38.521, 37.842, 38.810, 38.104 and 38.141, EMC and wearable device testing. In an again unheard-of set of features. The F-Series is also reverse-convertible from Reverberation into Anechoic and vice-versa, allowing Direct Far Field (DFF), Indirect Far-Field Compact Antenna Test Range (IFF-CATR) and Near-Field to Far-Field Spherical Near Field (NFTF-SNF) 3GPP-permitted test methods for 5G OTA. Conversion from RC to AC or vice versa can be performed within half a day. The F-Series is currently in use in several carrier customers for 5G OTA testing and installations are tailored to your space and testing needs.
