Accurate performance evaluation is crucial in the design and manufacturing of phased array antennas. Planar field testing is a widely used testing method, and this article will introduce its advantages and the Planar field testing solutions we provide.
1. High precision measurement: Planar field testing provides a highly accurate measurement environment that can accurately evaluate the performance of phased array antennas. This helps detect and address potential performance issues, ensuring that the antenna meets design requirements.
2. Comprehensive performance evaluation: Planar field testing can be used to evaluate various aspects of phased array antennas, including radiation pattern, gain, beamwidth, phase performance, etc. This makes comprehensive performance evaluation possible, which helps improve and optimize antenna design.
3. Laboratory testing: Planar field testing is usually conducted in an indoor testing laboratory and does not require a large amount of open space. This is very useful for testing in a limited environment.
4. High efficiency and repeatability: Planar field testing can usually be automated, improving testing efficiency and reducing human error in testing. This also makes the testing process more repeatable.
Sunyield SCR-5000 cylindrical measurement system, the first linear array multi-probe cylindrical measurement system in the industry, innovatively integrates spherical multi-probe technology into the cylinder surface to ensure test accuracy while significantly saving space and cost. The system adopts multi-probe calibration technology and electronic solid-state switch to quickly collect data to measure the 3D pattern of the antenna, and at the same time expand S-parameter information such as standing wave and isolation according to user requirements. According to the characteristics of cylindrical system, this system is particularly suitable for the measurement of base station antennas with narrow vertical beam.
In general, the measurement of 3D pattern can be achieved with the cost of a chamber for PIM or standing wave, and the system is especially suitable for prototype diagnostic testing in R&D and batch sampling in production.
