Avoid unexpected anechoic chamber test results

Complexity of wireless device designs is increasing. Performance expectations (gain, efficiency, pattern characteristics, etc.) constitute primary challenges in designing stand alone or embedded antennas. Designs are becoming ever more complex with a single device incorporating multiple technologies such as cellular, WiFi, Bluetooth, LTE, MIMO, RFID and GPS. Antenna performance is simply affected by the increasing number of antenna, components co-located with the antenna, enclosures, electronic sub-assemblies, and PCBs. Having immediate access to quick and reliable antenna test equipment is critical.

RFxpert’s unrivalled array of automatically switched probes calculates accurate far-field patterns and radiated power levels based on near-field measurements in less than a second.

Real-time scanning capabilities of RFxpert deliver significant design advantages not only at the design and development stages but also throughout the product lifecycle. Having immediate access to far-field data on your lab-bench significantly saves time and cost by decreasing dependence on time consuming and costly anechoic chambers. Now, wireless engineers and designers don’t lose time waiting in congested anechoic chamber lines to test multiple design iterations and optimize complex embedded antenna designs. They can troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns with novel very-near-field results, including amplitude, polarity and phase that give insights into the root cause of antenna performance challenges. RFxpert allows for more efficient and cost-effective solutions, project cost containment, and accelerated time-to-market.

Are you under time-to-market pressure because of the countless number of lengthy measurements in inaccessible anechoic chambers?

Tired of losing valuable project time waiting in line to test your designs in expensive anechoic chambers?

Do you want to test your design and performance quickly to accelerate project completion and delivery?

Are you under budget pressures?

Why did your product fail the compliance test in an anechoic chamber? Why didn’t you see this coming?

With RFxpert, in seconds and a fraction of an anechoic chamber cost you can easily:

  • Analyze your embedded antenna and wireless device designs
  • Prototype / test new designs, components, and forms
  • Iteratively test and optimize embedded antenna designs
  • Perform highly repeatable and rapid over-the-air wireless device measurements
  • Verify final product performance in real-time
  • Gain immediate insight into the root causes of performance issues by analyzing the near-field results

…all for a fraction of the cost of an anechoic chamber.

  •   How does RFxpert work?

    rfxpert-how-does-it-workRFxpert measures the magnetic field (H-Field) in two orthogonal directions using H-field probes and projects this data to the far-field using the planar aperture distribution to angular spectrum transformation or plane wave spectrum (PWS) transformation.

    A second custom algorithm then adjusts the far-field projection to eliminate the predictable coupling effects of the measurement array of probes. Probe response compensation is also taken into consideration in this algorithm.

    EMSCAN meticulously developed this custom algorithm through comprehensive and rigorous R&D efforts to get the most accurate test results.

Companies Who Trust RFxpert Products
What Our Customers Are Saying
“I prefer to use the RFxpert for my antenna design projects instead of simulation software. In a couple of hours, I can model a real antenna out of copper and test it with the RFxpert in the antenna’s intended operating environment. I then use the proven design, based on the RFxpert analysis, to prepare a CAD drawing and send it off to manufacturing for prototyping.”

“We're impressed with the accuracy of the RFX scanner compared to our external lab measurements for TRP.”

“We wanted to extend the distance between the hand-held transmitter and the aerial device. Initially we thought that we had to add an additional power amplifier stage. The RFxpert showed us that the real problem was something else: the coax was radiating as much as the antenna. By using better coax and a different coupling method from the final power amplifier stage to the antenna, we were able to transfer more power to the antenna. We managed this significant increase by almost zero cost to the design.”
