New Reverberation Chamber for WLAN, Bluetooth and IoT Measurements

Bluetest, a developer of reverberation chamber technology for MIMO OTA measurements, has  introduced the most compact member of the Reverberation Test System (RTS) family - the RTS25. The new RTS25 is optimized for measurements on the 2.4 and 5 GHz ISM bands. It can be used for Over-the-Air (OTA) measurements of WLAN, Bluetooth devices, or IoT applications such as ZigBee and Thread.

Customers are struggling with problems to verify devices and access points in a repeatable and accurate way. The RTS25 enables a shielded, controlled and repeatable OTA environment, which is compact and cost-effective with a low a maintenance cost.

The reverberation chamber provides an inherent 3D multipath environment that is needed to enable the MIMO functionality, hence substantially reducing the start cost for MIMO measurements compared with other OTA solutions.

Bluetest’s RTS reverberation chambers help the RF or antenna engineer to optimize the radio performance of wireless devices in a cost efficient, accurate and repeatable way.
