In a groundbreaking collaboration, RanLOS, TOYO Corporation, AeroGT Labs, and Anritsu have unveiled the first 5G antenna over-the-air (OTA) measurement system. This innovative system, engineered with RanLOS’ OTA test solution and Anritsu’s 5G Radio Communication Test Station MT8000A, represents a major leap forward in enabling advancements in 5 G-connected vehicles.
With the rapid rise of autonomous driving and the increasing demand for connected vehicles, the adoption of 5G for automotive use has brought about new performance requirements. The seamless flow of dynamic, real-time data communication is crucial for the safety of autonomous and connected vehicles, as well as for enabling advanced infotainment. This necessitates highly reliable antenna performance, which is essential for successful implementation.
To address this need, design engineers require a consistent, reliable, and controllable test environment that can accurately emulate real-world conditions. RanLOS and Anritsu have joined forces to integrate a portable antenna test system with a wide dynamic range base station simulation. This combined solution supports the measurement of throughput and antenna radiation patterns under static conditions, as well as the evaluation of throughput degradation in vehicles operating on a dynamometer. It is specifically designed to assess the performance of antennas on various transportation vehicles, including automobiles, vans, minibusses, and autonomous transport systems. What sets this solution apart is its unique capability to seamlessly integrate into pre-existing EMC chambers, providing manufacturers with an opportunity to establish an essential testing environment while minimizing the initial investment.
As leaders in the measurement solution industry, TOYO and AeroGT Labs view this innovative solution as the optimal choice for customers seeking a 5G OTA measurement solution for advancing next-generation mobility. Leveraging their extensive experience in EMC and antenna measurement, TOYO and AeroGT Labs are spearheading the go-to-market efforts for this cutting-edge system.
The 5G antenna OTA measurement solution is now available for shipping. For further information or to book a demo, interested parties are encouraged to contact any of the companies mentioned in this news release.
