ETS-Lindgren Demonstrates 5G mmWave Antenna Measurement System at Industry Leading IEEE Symposium


CEDAR PARK, Texas August 8, 2019   ETS-Lindgren demonstrated its 5G millimeter (mmWave)  Antenna Measurement System at the recent 2019 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC), Signal and Power Integrity, held in New Orleans, LA over July 22-26.   With Professor Gabriel Rebeiz of the University of California at San Diego (UCSD) presenting the keynote address on "5G and the Rise of Directive Communications: The End of the Marconi Era is Near," 5G mmWave performance verification testing was a popular topic during the symposium week.  As an industry leader in antenna measurement solutions for the testing of wireless devices, ETS-Lindgren's wireless experts presented in the symposium technical program and provided a hand's on learning opportunity with a demonstration featuring the Model AMS-5700, a Compact 5G Antenna Measurement System, and a Gapwaves 5G mmWave antenna.


James Young, Director of Business Development with ETS-Lindgren, conducted a demonstration that showed an effective isotropic radiated power (EIRP) and power spectral density (PSD) measurement solution for a 5G mmWave radiating device, as required by FCC Part 30.  Mr. Young noted, "The lack of antenna ports now drives these formerly conducted tests to a radiated test environment.  Additional FCC Part 30, ETSI 400 coexistence tests, such as modulation accuracy, adjacent-band or out-of-band measurements, must also adapt to a radiated test procedure when applied to 5G devices, making this demonstration applicable to nearly any EMC lab that handles wireless intentional transmitters."  The demonstration highlighted the challenges associated with evaluating emissions and immunity compliance on 5G New Radio (NR) devices and gNodeB base stations that utilize beamforming antennas and mmWave communication. 


The Gapwaves 5G antenna shown in the demonstration is a 28 GHz active antenna that enables an extremely low loss, high efficiency and compact mmWave antenna. The all metal waveguide assembly makes it ideal for high power, high EIRP applications as the power devices are efficiently thermally coupled to the antenna acting as a heat sink.


Thomas Emanuelsson, Chief Technology Officer with Gapwaves, said, "We appreciate working with ETS-Lindgren and are impressed by their testing capabilities.  The Gapwaves 28 GHz active antenna leverages the patented Gapwaves waveguide technology demonstrating a state of the art 5G mmWave solution. ETS-Lindgren is unique in addressing 5G mmWave test and measurement solutions for this kind of application."  To view a short video of the AMS-5700 and Gapwaves antenna, click here.
