Jason Xiao, Principal RF Engineer | Philips Medical Systems, New York City, NY, USA – November 17, 2016

Philips Medical Systems uses RFxpert RFX2 and EMxpert EHX for testing.

What was the problem you were experiencing before you purchased RFxpert RFX2?

Inconvenience and time-consuming for quick antenna efficiency and radiation as well as noise assessment during development.

What did you find as a result of buying RFxpert RFX2?

Very convenient and sufficient for initial assessment.

What specific features did you like most about RFxpert RFX2?

Noise scans; antenna radiated power in active modes and passive – efficiency and patterns etc.

What are three other benefits of RFxpert RFX2?

Peak power capturing to assess total radiated power in “active” burst modes. Assembled products and field debug from burst mode scanning at different band and frequencies.

Tell us what your experience has been with our products/services?

Nice support from the vendor as well as educations etc.

Can you think of a word or phrase that best describes your experience with RFxpert RFX2? Why that particular word or phrase?

Convenience because it’s easy to use with good-enough accuracy.

Why would you recommend RFxpert RFX2 to someone else?

Convenience to use

If one of your colleagues called you and said “Why should I add RFxpert RFX2 to our testing process”, what would you tell them?


How was convenience translated into value to justify the investment in the EMSCAN products to management?

Saved a lot of time without coordinating and communicating to antenna test lab and vendors.

What resonated most with management: more development time (potential revenue) and/or less test time (cost reduction) from the engineer? Reduced chamber test costs? Accelerated time to market? Increased innovation by fast testing of new design or change to designs?

All these – all of them.

EMSCAN is the world leading developer of FAST magnetic very-near-field measurement technologies and applications since 1989, providing real-time test solutions to antenna and PCB designers and verification engineers, without the need for a chamber.

The EMxpert, a family of compact EMC and EMI diagnostic tools, and the RFxpert, a family of antenna measurement tools, enable engineers to quickly optimize their designs. EMSCAN solutions dramatically increase designer productivity and substantially reduce time-to-market and project development costs. www.emscan.com
