Cost-efficient benchmarking of wireless devices
In Over-The-Air (OTA) performance testing, a wireless device is tested in an anechoic chamber using the Propsim radio channel emulator. The test is conducted without any cables connected to the device under test. This enables true performance testing of an entire design, eliminates any interference caused by test cables and omits the need for modifying the planned design for testing purposes. A properly developed and tested MIMO feature in a wireless device leads to greater throughput and ultimately drives end-user satisfaction.
Enhanced mobile capacity driven by MIMO performance is partially dependent on the antenna design. Testing the MIMO antenna design of a wireless device over-the-air is the optimal way of verifying the antenna performance. The OTA solution includes a Propsim® channel emulator (FS8, F32 or F8) with the MIMO OTA application, a test transmitter and an anechoic chamber equipped with OTA antennas. The OTA performance testing system using Propsim is scalable from a single cluster to full 3D. The scalability of the testing system means that the location and amount of test antennas in the anechoic chamber can be altered.
