Calgary, AB, Canada – October 12, 2017: The RFxpert 4.2 software application due for immediate worldwide release is a one more step toward the RFxpert delivering chamber-like accuracy with further enhanced performance.

These improvements come from a new far-field correction window algorithm correcting for the finite aperture effect. As a result, far-field pattern estimation is better than ever and the previously overestimated gain has been improved.

Two major features were added as well.

  1. The RFxpert now offers a TIS Proxy if the user knows the Conducted Sensitivity value and conducted power value of the DUT. RFxpert will estimate the TIS of the DUT without going through a time-consuming test plan. It is in fact a very fast measurement which can be done in real-time. This calculation is not a direct measurement of the receive performance which is why EMSCAN calls it a TIS proxy. It can still be a good approximation when the conducted RF values of the device are known.
  2. The RFxpert report generator has the option to include CTIA tests results from the Test Plan for Mobile Station Over the Air (OTA) Performance when one does an aggregate Fixed Frequency scan. This can apply to free space testing or testing with the phantom head and hand kit on the RFX2.

Customer-driven improvements and support for additional VNAs have also been incorporated in this new release.

All RFxpert customers under warranty will receive 4.2 automatically; upgrade programs are also available on-demand. Please click here for the release note.
