Santa Clara, CA, USA – January 06, 2016: EMSCAN will showcase the world’s largest real-time antenna pattern measurement system: RFX2 and how to test large directional antennas with RFX2 in minutes. Multi Co-planar Scan which is available only with the RFX2 enables power and pattern measurements at a single frequency or a series of frequencies for antennas with NEW maximum dimensions of 2.32 m x 2.32 m (91.34″ x 91.34″).

Multi-Co-Planar Scan (MCP) function which is available only with the RFX2 enables power and pattern measurements at a single frequency or series of frequencies of antennas that are too large to measure with a single RFX2 scanner. The RFX2 is a desktop scanner that characterizes antennas without the need for a chamber. RFX2 provides far-field patterns, bisections, EIRP and TRP in less than two seconds. Novel near-field results, including amplitude, polarity and phase give insights into the root causes of antenna performance challenges and help troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns.

RFX2 can also integrate with a network analyzer to measure gain, efficiency and S11 of an antenna, and with a base station emulator to test cell phones. Users can execute real-time analysis of their embedded antenna designs and test multiple design iterations, on the lab bench, in seconds at each stage of the design process. RFX2 also gives wireless engineers the freedom to do rapid prototyping and explore new designs, new materials and new forms. Wireless engineers and designers can test multiple design variations and optimize complex embedded antenna designs at their desktop in seconds without wasting time waiting in congested anechoic chamber lines. They can optimize positioning and effects from layout, monitor changes from packaging or layout changes or verify performance of final product in seconds and then go to the chambers for final certification requirements with their mind at ease, knowing that their design will achieve a first-time pass.
