The Microwave Vision Group, has announced substantial interest in its innovative new StarWave system, with the first sale confirmed just a few weeks after launching the technology to market. Despite challenging global conditions caused by the coronavirus pandemic, the launch of this new era 5G mm-Wave OTA testing technology has been particularly well received by the telecommunications industry. The first system was sold post-launch in the USA and will be used to test 5G connected handsets, tablets and laptops.

StarWave is a compact, flexible, dual-polarized, wideband plane wave generator (PWG), specifically developed as a turnkey test solution. It optimizes the 5G device testing process.

Capable of testing a large spectrum of the 5G dedicated frequency bands, the StarWave system offers a highly scalable, all-in-one testing solution for 5G devices under development in the telecommunications industry. It is a compact solution, with minimal electronic parts for stable, quick and simple operation.
