Calgary, Canada – August 21, 2012: RFxpert 3.4 software release due on September 7 is another step in expanding the range of antennas and wireless devices that can be tested in real-time by RFX and RFX2. Embedded antennas can now be tested up to 115 mm (4.5 inches) away from the surface of the scanner. Advanced Mode set-up can support infrequent pulse data with a maximum time between pulses of 60 seconds. Products like Wi-Fi base stations and smart meters are representative products benefiting from both features.
Another key feature of 3.4 is a very-near-field mask that filters unwanted very-near-field emissions in a selected area. Far-field results of for example an antenna under test are no longer affected by emission from a mismatch feed that radiates with the antenna.
Customer-driven improvements have also been incorporated in this new release; for example far-field patterns can now displayed in terms of directivity, normalized, gain or realized gain.
All RFxpert customers under warranty will receive 3.4 automatically; upgrade programs are also available on-demand. Please contact your local representative or contact us via our web site: http://www.emscan.com/emscan/contactus.cfm
