Anechoic chamber is ready!!! First measurements started.
Blog: Oh, yeah. There's gotta be an antenna in there, too.
We go through it often: design ready, an antenna on it and...? EMC problems! In the worst case this means a redesign from scratch. Often this can be prevented, that's why this blog has some handles. Read on...
The anechoic chamber is ready. We have it, and the first tests are looking very good. With total radio silence it is very fine measuring. It is even more accurate and, because of its precision, faster and therefore faster time-to-market for products.
Jan ten Thije takes us on a tour of the anechoic chamber , both inside and outside . He also tells us about measuring setups, turntables, separate power supplies, measuring antennas and more.
At the end of March we will be measuring our first project - the new GTTS-5000 Solar Tracker
In an anechoic chamber all radio waves are absorbed and there is no influence from outside. We therefore test our designs in a 'green-field' situation. Ideal for pure measurement or to meet the - already difficult to achieve - FCC regulation. Our pre-compliance measurement is more accurate as required by the standard and therefore the development of your product is more efficient with a faster time-to-market.
It is very effective if you include the antenna directly in the design. See also the blog on the right 'Oh yes, there should also be an antenna in it'. This illustrates that we often experience this. Unfortunately, the design often has to be completely reworked and that costs time and energy.
A long-cherished dream comes true
