mmWave Mobile Anechoic Chamber / Measurement System for up to 75GHz
17th January 2020
The Ethertronics ETH-MMW-1000 is a fully anechoic millimeter measurement system capable of testing wireless devices from 18 to 75GHz. The system is self contained, moveable, and compact enough to fit into any laboratory or production environment being a fully self-contained moveable system.
Self-Contained Moveable mmWave Testing Chamber
Compact and portable, the ETH-MMW-1000 frees up space in laboratories and production environments. The system integrates its Gigahertz Control Unit, Measurement PC and Vector Network Analyzer/Radiocom tester. Easily installed into a new or existing construction, the moveable chassis can be relocated within a test facility.
Accurate and Cost Effective Far-Field Measurement System
The ETH-MMW-1000 includes a distributed axis positioning system, consisting of:
An azimuth mast rotator for rotating the device under test about the Phi axis
A theta ring positioner for elevating the measurement Horns around the device under test
Each measurement bandwidth is covered by dedicated paths (High Performance RF cables, rectangular waveguides, measurement Horns), associated with a common amplification stage. The fully anechoic enclosure provides a shielded environment over a very wide frequency range (from 18 GHz to 75 GHz) and ensures stable measurement results.
The millimeter measurement system is a flexible turn-key solution, ideal for all testing needs for mmWave system development and validation, including: 5G communications devices, mobile communications devices, defence, and research and development.
The system is supplied with the complete Ethertronics® software suite, including:
Ethertronics® Antenna Measurement (Measurement Control and Data Acquisition)
Ethertronics® Antenna Viewer (Post-processing and tabular/graphical data output)
DMTL is a fully franchised, authorised Ethertronics distributor.
