Analyze your embedded antenna design and test multiple design iterations on your lab bench in seconds
The characteristics of an antenna like antenna impedance, efficiency and gain can change when an antenna is embedded into a product. These characteristics are crucial to ensure that the antenna will function as expected after it is integrated into a product. The structure of the product in which the antenna is embedded could affect the feed in impedance of the antenna. PCBs or any metal element on the product could have an impact on the antenna efficiency or gain.
So it is very important to measure the antenna characteristics at each stage of the embedded antenna design process and to optimize the performance of the embedded antenna to launch an excellent product to the market on-time.
Depending on your project deadline and budget, you may either be designing your own embedded antenna or buying an off-the-shelf antenna. Either way, RFxpert brings fast and accurate test capabilities to RF engineers to assist them with antenna integration and successful delivery of the product to market.
Don’t lose valuable project time waiting for an anechoic chamber to test your designs!
There are various antenna design tools to optimize the characteristics of an embedded antenna. However, immediate access to the test results at each stage of the embedded antenna design process is crucial to the success of your project. Anechoic chamber or other conventional test methods can be extremely time consuming especially when there is no dedicated anechoic chamber for the design and development team. You have to wait for your turn and spend hours to make antenna pattern measurements in the chamber every time you make a modification to your embedded antenna design.
In less than a second, RFxpert characterizes antennas and provides far-field patterns, bisections, EIRP and TRP without the need for an anechoic chamber. Novel very-near-field results, including amplitude, polarity and phase give insights into the root causes of embedded antenna design challenges and help troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns. You can test multiple design iterations and optimize complex embedded antenna designs at your desktop in seconds. You can quickly optimize positioning, monitor the impact from packaging or layout changes or verify performance of final product, and then go to the anechoic chamber for final certification with your mind at ease, knowing that your design will achieve a first-time pass.
Most leading smart phone manufacturers, military contractors and consumer electronics manufacturers are already using RFxpert to measure their embedded antenna designs quickly and cost effectively.
