At IMS 2022, MilliBox will be unveiling and demonstrating its new generation of mmWave and THz phased array antenna positioner. The GIM05 is a revolutionary solution for antenna over-the-air (OTA) measurement with a spherical roll design, offering the widest possible unobstructed field of view. Traditional Azimuth-Elevation positioners have arm structures on the sides of the device under test (DUT) which blocks the measurement path at some high angles. However, the GIM05 holds the DUT from the back which completely clears the sides from obstruction and stray reflections coming from the positioner body.
The GIM05 antenna positioner has 3 axes of rotations Theta, Phi, and relative polarization control on the probe side. All motorized axes have angular resolution below 0.1°. The software controller is written in Python for maximum portability and is provided in source code for ease of integration and expandability. The software controller is compatible with all other antenna positioners from MilliBox and supports all instruments capable of SCPI automation.
GIM05 is modular in size and offers a wide range of DUT mount capabilities for DUT up to 15” (38cm) and 10lbs (5kg). GIM05 system fits in all MilliBox anechoic chambers.
The GIM05 can be seen at the MilliBox booth 7101 at IMS 2022 in Denver, Colorado from 21-23 June.
