Cost-Effective Test Chamber to Evaluate mm-Wave Radiation Patterns

mm-wave technology solutions experts, Milliwave Silicon Solutions, will be showcasing its innovative 2-Axis 360° Millimeter-Wave Radiation Pattern Test Chamber at the IMS 2019 in Boston next week.

The MilliBox is an innovative mmWave radiation pattern and beam-forming OTA test product.It can be used for Beamforming 3D capture, Over the air (OTA) measurements, antenna array performance tests, beam-steering algorithm testing, In-system antenna placement, compliance testing and a wide array of other applications. It is one of the most cost-effective ways of carrying out the above tests.

Here are some key features of the product:

  • Compact form factor, ­that fits on lab bench: 4’ x 3’ x 2’ WHD
