High-Frequency Spherical Near-Field Range (LA)
Located in Los Angeles is our High-Frequency Spherical Near-Field test range. This system extends the frequency range of our testing services up to 110 GHz and beyond. This is an ideal system for characterizing low gain antennas at mm-wave frequencies that would normally be difficult to measure. The anechoic chamber measures 8' (2.4 m) wide, 13' (4.0 m) long and 11' (3.4 m) high and lined with 12" (0.3 m) white pyramidal absorber.
The SNF chamber features the NSI-RF-90001D RF state-of-the-art antenna measurement system with the high-performance Panther 9000 receiver and dual Panther 7020 20 GHz sources. Using mm-Wave frequency conversion modules, the frequency range of this chamber is extended up to 110 GHz.
