Broadband test solutions
The MICROWAVE VISION Group, primarily French, achieved an enviable international position with its unique, patented multi-probe technology that is dedicated to measuring high-performance antennas. The Group’s technology is already developed into a range of test solutions for systems of all sizes and in all sectors using communication products: telecommunications, multimedia, aerospace, automotive, civilian, military, etc.
MICROWAVE VISION is launching a new generation of measurement devices dedicated to 4G (LTE, WiMAX), the newest mobile broadband standard. These devices (smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc.) include MIMO technology that relies on multiple antennas at both the transmitter (e.g., a router) and the receiver (e.g., a laptop) sites, to increase throughput or network coverage.
A strategic concern for mobile handset manufacturers
With MIMO wireless devices, manufacturers are faced with a new level of complexity in antenna development and testing. MIMO technology requires that antennas are tested in multiple configurations and multiple environments (urban, rural, domestic, etc.) This presents a real challenge. A fast, flexible test solution becomes a major asset in the design and pre-launch testing phases of development.
For years, MICROWAVE VISION delivered blue and yellow arches sized from smaller than one meter to larger than twelve meters in diameter to industrial customers. They have been used to test products of much larger or smaller size, from smartphones to airplanes!
The new MIMO solution creates fully-immersive electromagnetic environments for wireless devices. True to its political aims, MICROWAVE VISION offers a range of solutions for MIMO measurement.
With this step, MICROWAVE VISION demonstrates its technological leadership and dedication to innovation. Already, several companies have expressed interest in this new solution.
