The RFX2 is a desktop scanner that characterizes antennas without the need for a chamber. RFX2 provides far-field patterns, bisections, EIRP and TRP in less than two seconds. Novel near-field results, including amplitude, polarity and phase give insights into the root causes of antenna performance challenges and help troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns.
A large scan area allows designers to test antennas up to 32cm x 32cm (12.60″ x 12.60″) e.g. notebooks, laptops. RFX2 can also integrate with a network analyser to measure gain, efficiency and S11 of an antenna, and with a base station emulator to test cell phones.
Users can execute real-time analysis of their embedded antenna designs and test multiple design iterations, on the lab bench, in seconds at each stage of the design process. RFX2 also gives wireless engineers the freedom to do rapid prototyping and explore new designs, new materials and new forms.
Wireless engineers and designers can test multiple design variations and optimize complex embedded antenna designs at their desktop in seconds without wasting time waiting in congested anechoic chamber lines.
As a golden sample comparison tool with real-time results, the RFX2 is also ideal for sample lot testing and product verification for wireless service providers or for manufacturing support. RFX2 allows design teams to reduce testing time by at least one order of magnitude. With its real-time capability, RFX2 is a perfect tool to improve the design process for manufacturers of cellular, GPS, WiFi, RFID, Bluetooth, LTE, MIMO, custom and medical devices.
