ATS1000 antenna test system for millimeter wave antenna testing

Characterization of devices throughout the entire process from R&D to production

Offering measurements on active and passive devices - supporting also extreme temperature testing. 5G is all about data, speed and reliability using high frequency millimeter wave bands. The lack of conventional external RF connectors makes 5G antenna characterization challenging. 5G antenna, chipset and UE manufacturers as well as wireless market operators need a viable solution for research, diagnostics and debugging up to type approval.

Features & benefits

Very fast and accurate 3D antenna characterization

The high precision positioner allows very fast and accurate measurements

The positioner allows highly precise azimuth and elevation movements with extremely high repeatability and angular resolution, thus assuring accurate 3D antenna measurements.
Different DUT holders and fixtures are available to allow convenient measurements for different sizes and weights.
An accurate DUT positioning and RF calibration is essential in order to get highly precise results. Cross lasers integrated in the chamber ensure maximum precision for proper alignment of the DUT.

The conical cut positioner allows highly precise movements with extremely high repeatability and very fine angular resolution

Designed for maximum compactness and mobility

The compact design fits into any lab ensuring a small footprint of around 1.3 m2

Developers no longer depend on large antenna chambers installed in fixed locations to test and optimize products and can thus avoid measurement bottlenecks. A mobile shielded chamber on wheels can be easily shared among multiple departments.
The R&S®ATS1000 provides a high performance shielded environment over a wide frequency range from 18 GHz to 87 GHz.
The decisive advantage is that it offers measurement accuracy as high as that of a three times larger antenna chamber in a more compact shape.

Compact and versatile footprint

Compact and versatile footprint

R&S ATS1000 offers a very compact footprint and high mobility as it features wheels

Far-field measurements in a small footprint

The compact setup allows far-field measurement with 0. 5m range length

Antenna characterization for 5G devices can be performed under farfield conditions in a quiet zone size of approx. 5 cm. Where the whitebox approach is suitable the ATS1000 can deliver fast and accurate results in a very small form factor

3D device characterization

3D device characterization

Measurement of 3D pattern or antenna gain on a 5G NR transceiver module

Near field to far field transformation

Based on near field measurements far field parameters can be computed

When the device under test exceeds the maximum size for far field conditions, a near field to far field transformation is necessary to determine far-field data.
In conjuctions with the R&S®AMS32 software and a vector network analyzer (e.g. R&S ZNA), the positioner in the ATS1000 is capable to perform 3D measurements in the near field for fast near field to far field transformations.

Dual polarized measurement probe R&S TC-TA85CP

The dual polarized measurement proble delivers data of two orthogonal polarizations required for near field to far field transformations

Measurement under extreme temperature conditions

Perform 3D device and antenna characterization over a wide temperature range

Thermal effects diagnostics on DUTs is becoming a requirement not only for 5G since device heating can affect the RF components and consequently the radiation pattern of the antennas. Engineers no longer need to depend on separate testing in an RF OTA chamber and a climatic chamber because the R&S®ATS1000 thermal solution combines both into a single chamber. The R&S®ATS-TEMP option is a compact solution that allows RF measurements on devices in a temperature range from –20 °C to +85 °C.
