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.

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.”
Jorge I. Ortiz
RF Network & Antenna Engineer, Independent Consultant at Mueller Systems Ocala, Florida Area
“We're impressed with the accuracy of the RFX scanner compared to our external lab measurements for TRP.”
Jeremy Monroe
MoJoose Inc
“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.”

“Designers now evaluate designs in real-time vs. waiting at the back of the queue with $100M+ projects in front”
