The SG 24 is ideal for the OTA testing of mobile device conformance, particularly for LTE, 5G (<10 GHz) and WiFi protocols. It offers a measurement speed up to 3 times faster and a consi¬derably higher dynamic range in passive antenna measurement mode than the previous version. Available in 3 sizes, with the standard and large models CTIA certifiable.
Option to extend the frequency band up to 10 GHz
SG 24 uses analog RF signal generators to emit EM waves from the probe array to the antenna under test (AUT) or vice versa. It uses the NPAC as an RF receiver for antenna mea¬surements. The NPAC also drives the electronic scanning of the probe array. The NPAC includes the fastest and most accurate sources and receivers on the market.
For OTA measurements, the tests are performed through the radio communication tester. The amplification units amplify the signal on transmission/reception channels to achieve optimum dynamic range. The Transfer Switching Unit is used to switch between the emission and reception modes of the AUT.
Adding the NPAC to your configuration is a great way to boost your SG 24 system capabilities. Alternatively, an existing VNA can be used if dedicated to the SG 24 system.
It allows users to perform the following measurements:
