Eurofins Electrical & Electronics (E&E) North America, part of the Eurofins global network of laboratories, is pleased to announce that it is now able to provide FR1 5G sub-6 and FR2 5G mmWave over-the-air (OTA) pre-testing at its Santa Clara lab facility. OTA Performance Testing
For 5G FR1 (sub-6) OTA testing, Eurofins utilizes the ETS AMS-8815. This theta arm-based anechoic chamber features a frequency range from 400MHz to 10GHz, making it suitable for all FR1 customer testing needs.
For 5G FR2 (mmWave), Eurofins utilizes the ETS AMS-5705 Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR) chamber, which is an ideal solution for 5G mmWave OTA testing. This AMS-5705 chamber is optimized to handle mmWave antenna arrays up to 30cm in diameter and covering a frequency range from 18GHz to 50GHz. Eurofins E&E North America is one of the first commercial labs to commission the mmWave testing chamber.
Both chambers are integrated with the MT8000A and MT8821C state-of-the-art equipment from Anritsu. OTA Performance Testing
“With our latest 5G OTA capabilities, we are pleased to offer a wide range of OTA performance testing services for wireless and radio devices,” said Eleazar Zuniga, Director of Wireless Technologies for Eurofins E&E. “These new services allow us to develop a custom testing process based on our customers’ requirements.”
