It allows simplified terminal mounting/dismounting and meets the 3GPP RF/RRM Conformance Take a look at suggestions

5G mmWave (FR2) providers are anticipated to change into step by step extra widespread, particularly in developed economies. Consequently, future growth and certification testing of 5G mmWave terminals is anticipated to change into extra energetic.

This requires the mmWave terminals to be examined in an OTA setting, however, as a result of mmWave and OTA traits, acquiring reproducible check outcomes is tough except the check terminal is mounted within the check tools on the similar place every time. In consequence, not solely should terminal mounting/dismounting be simple, however a extremely reproducible mounting place must also be current for acquiring good measurement outcomes. 

Furthermore, correct outcomes is not going to be obtained if the most effective Alignment Possibility can’t be chosen in response to the terminal design and particularly the mmWave antenna place. 

To satisfy these challenges, the MA8179A-AK011 DUT Holder has been developed by Anritsu Company. Moreover simplifying test-terminal mounting/dismounting and sustaining accuracy, the MA8179A-AK011 has been developed as a DUT Holder for the CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A to implement a single compact jig supporting the DUT (Gadget Below Take a look at, e.g. terminals – smartphone or pill) positions and orientations specified by the 3GPP Alignment Possibility 1/2/3. Moreover, it satisfies the High quality of Quiet Zone advice for the 3GPP RF/RRM Conformance Take a look at. 

Options

  • Full assist for Alignment Possibility 1/2/3
  • Simple DUT/terminal mounting/dismounting within the check chamber
  • Repeatable excessive accuracy mounting of the check terminal within the check chamber
  • Sturdy engineering-plastics development assures wonderful sturdiness with minimal affect on indicators

The DUT Holder MA8179A-AK011 is constructed into the CATR Anechoic Chamber MA8172A, which meets the 3GPP RF/RRM Conformance Take a look at suggestions, as a hard and fast jig for check terminals and is mounted on the Positioner MA8179A to auto-control the test-terminal place.

Designed particularly for the Radio Communication Take a look at Station MT8000A / New Radio RF Conformance Take a look at System ME7873NR, the OTA chamber has wonderful compatibility with 5G mmWave check tools.
