The RFX is a compact bench-top scanner that characterizes antennas in your own lab environment in real-time. RFX provides far-field patterns, bisections, EIRP and TRP in seconds. Novel near-field results, including amplitude, polarity and phase give insights into the root causes of antenna performance challenges and help troubleshoot far-field radiation patterns.
RFX can also integrate with a network analyzer to measure gain, efficiency and S11 of an antenna, and with a base station emulator to test cell phones. Users can execute real-time analysis of their embedded antenna designs and test multiple design iterations, on the lab bench, in seconds at each stage of the design process. RFX also gives wireless engineers the freedom to do rapid prototyping and explore new designs, new materials and new forms. Wireless engineers and designers can test multiple design variations and optimize complex embedded antenna designs
at their lab bench in seconds without wasting time waiting in congested anechoic chamber lines. They can optimize positioning and effects from layout, monitor changes from packaging or
layout changes or verify performance of final product in real-time and then go to the chambers for final certification requirements with their mind at ease, knowing that their design will achieve a first-time pass.
With the Circular Polarization (CP) option, the RFX calculates the right and left hand circularly polarized patterns and displays axial ratio patterns. RFX can be integrated into virtually any automated test bed and production line by using DLL programming. As a golden sample comparison tool with realtime results, the RFX is also ideal for sample lot testing and product verification for wireless service providers or for manufacturing support.
RFX allows design teams to reduce testing time by at least one order of magnitude. Users have also documented fifty percent reductions in design cycle times. RFX provides antenna designers and wireless engineers with an easy-to-use, cost effective, and proven tabletop solution. With its real-time capability, RFX is a perfect tool to improve the design process for manufacturers of cellular, GPS, WiFi, RFID, Bluetooth, LTE, MIMO, custom and medical devices.
