RF Test: Over the Air Fundamentals with Rohde & Schwarz
Now Available On-Demand
New technologies in wireless communications, automotive, and aerospace & defense call for higher frequencies and larger bandwidths. IoT and wearable devices for e-health have to minimize power consumption to extend battery lifetime. Components need to address the challenging requirements of mobility, connectivity, highest data rates, robustness, and power efficiency. Engineers face complex challenges when designing, developing, and testing new components. When building modules and complex systems, engineers need to select the best solution for their specific environment and make sure it performs.
Today, given the increasing integration of chipsets and antennas as well as usage of higher frequencies, the lines between testing chipsets, RF testing, and antenna characterization have become blurred. Therefore, Over-The-Air (OTA) testing is becoming more important for a broader audience. The step from conducted measurements to OTA testing changes the measurement requirements to a certain degree. New user groups are thus required to have a basic understanding of antennas and antenna measurements.
This webinar will provide an introduction to antennas in general, their parameters, and different types, as well as antenna characterization and testing. Included at the end of the presentation is a Q&A session with Rohde & Schwarz’s Rich Markley!
