Bluetest has introduced the most compact member of its Reverberation Test System (RTS) family – the RTS25. The system is optimized for measurements on the 2.4 and 5 GHz ISM bands and is therefore suitable for Over-the-Air (OTA) measurements of WLAN, Bluetooth devices, or IoT applications such as ZigBee and Thread.
“We wanted to create a high performing product for our customers on the WLAN and Bluetooth market to a competitive price. WLAN and Bluetooth are receiving more and more interest due to the growing IoT focus and we know that these customers are struggling with problems to verify devices or access points in a repeatable and accurate way. The RTS25 enables a shielded, controlled and repeatable OTA environment, and the small size of RTS25 makes the investment less painful and the maintenance cost is at a bare minimum.” said Kjell Olovsson, CEO.
The reverberation chamber provides an inherent 3D multipath environment that is necessary to enable the MIMO functionality, hence substantially reducing the start cost for MIMO measurements compared with other OTA solutions, claimed Olovsson. He continued: “We have thought about the cost for the customer from every aspect of the entire development process. Combine the RTS25 with our accompanying throughput test solution and you will have the most cost effective and complete WLAN throughput measurement test solution on the market.”
