RF & microwave component testing

RF & microwave component testing

Latest technologies in wireless communications, automotive and aerospace & defense call for higher frequencies and larger bandwidths. IoT and wearable devices for e-health have to minimize power consumption to extend battery lifetime. Components need to address the challenging requirements of mobility, connectivity, highest data rates, robustness and power efficiency.

To pick one example, 5G NR is driving demand in multiple directions that are as diverse as the various applications for 5G. For the first time, mass products will go up to microwave frequencies in the 28 GHz or 39 GHz range, enabling high data rates through wide RF bandwidths of hundreds of MHz. Beamforming will be an essential part of the 5G system. Antenna designs and RF frontends (including RF upconverters, filters and amplifiers) will look different than common solutions from former standards.

Engineers face complex challenges when designing, developing and testing new components. When building modules and complex systems, engineers need to select the best solution for their specific environment and make sure it performs. Our comprehensive test and measurement solutions include high-end lab equipment and cost-efficient production solutions.
