Rapidtek Technologies, an AESA (Active Electric Scan Antenna) designer and RF testing solution provider, and Amarisoft, a provider of affordable and high-quality 4G/5G testers to the wireless industry showcased next-generation RF test solutions at IMS 2022 in Denver, Colorado last week.
At the event, Dr. Alex Chou, Chief Technology Officer, presented a paper titled "A 1024-Element Ku-Band SATCOM Phased-Array Transmitter With 39.2-dBW EIRP and ± 53o Beam Scanning".
"We are delighted to demonstrate the innovated test solution with our strategic partner, Amarisoft, to join forces and catch up with the momentum of the Next Generation RF Test," said Arthur Wang, founder and CEO of Rapidtek. The test solution uses Rapidtek's UDC (Up/Down converter) Modules and accessories with AMARI Callbox. It can provide the customers with an instant and cost-effective test methodology for the next generation of seamlessly connected wireless devices that have different band requirements.
The idea behind the next-generation test solution is to generate a Sub-6 GHz baseband signal using the AMARI Callbox and a UDC (Up/Down converter) system to generate 6 - 48 GHz mmWave communication test frequency bands. The frequency bands include the Ku Band, Ka Band, n257 - n262 test frequency bands. The EVM of the generated signal is very good and the system has also completed a number of industry standard communication test verifications for WiFi 6E/7, 5G FR2, B5G.
The AMARI Callbox is the ideal solution for testing 5G Non-Standalone and Standalone, LTE, LTE-M, and NB-IoT devices. It acts as a 3GPP compliant eNB/gNB and EPC/5GC allowing functional and performance testing. "Both AMARI Callbox Advanced and AMARI Callbox Ultimate support 5G-NR mmWave with the use of external Up-Down Converters from our partners," said Marouan Benabdellah-Chaouni, Director Of Sales And Marketing of Amarisoft.
