Microwave Vision Group (MVG) has introduced the StarLab 50 GHz, a new compact and portable multi-probe system that is designed to meet testing challenges at a high frequency of 650 MHz to 50 GHz. It is a near-field multi-probe turn-key antenna measurement system for both passive antenna measurements and/or OTA testing.
The StarLab 50 GHz integrates cutting-edge technology for the measurement and analysis of mm-wave frequencies. It provides fast and accurate test results for a variety of 5G devices, and its compact and portable design facilitates flexibility in test lab or production site location and space.
Future-proofed, the MVG StarLab 50 GHz technology leaps forward to offer a wide range of frequency measurements, from 650 MHz to 50 GHz. The spherical near-field measurement capabilities of StarLab 50 GHz provide flexibility in the types of antennas to be tested, from low to high directivity, and its patented multi-probe electronic scanning technology and oversampling capabilities limit mechanical movement.
StarLab 50 GHz can be used to test the following parameters:
- Cross polar discrimination
- Sidelobe levels
- 3D radiation pattern
- Radiation pattern in any polarization (linear or circular)
- Antenna efficiency
- TRP, TIS, EIRP and EIS
Advancements in technology enabling more broadband, high capacity, and high data rate transmissions have led to the increased necessity for accurate and precise OTA measurements in R&D labs and production lines. In conjunction with WaveStudio-OTA dedicated software, an anechoic chamber and requisite instrumentation, StarLab 50 GHz is compliant with the standards specified for CTIA certification of wireless devices.
Built for efficiency, the StarLab 50 GHz is an all-in-one, turnkey solution and its compact and portable design facilitates flexibility in test lab or production site location and space. Altogether, this advanced technology brings crucial speed and accuracy to the test and validation process of your future 5G device.
Applications of StarLab 50 GHz include mmWave Antenna Measurement and mmWave OTA Testing.
“MVG’s ambition is to be at the leading edge of what the market needs in terms of 5G testing. By offering flexible test solutions that can be upgraded to serve future needs, we enable our customers to be competitive in the development of new products. Optimization of the test systems to find the best balance between the total flexibility of a fully modular system and the efficiency of a single-box solution is a core competency of MVG. This know-how has been proven over many years through the delivery of first-class test systems to the most competitive companies in the world,” commented MVG CEO, Philippe Garreau.
