Rohde & Schwarz GmbH & Co. KG Stands 23, 26
Automotive Radome Tester
Integrating automotive radar sensors into cars is very challenging. Radars operate behind bumpers, design emblems or other plastic parts. All radome materials need to be sufficiently transparent and homogeneous for automotive radars. Rohde & Schwarz has developed the R&S QAR quality automotive radome tester, a tailored solution for radar integration testing. It is a mmWave imaging system operating in the E-Band automotive frequency range. Thanks to its spatially resolved reflection measurement capability, it provides a very intuitive yet powerful way to evaluate radome performance.

Ingun Stand 130
RF Test Solution for IoT & 5G
The HFS-856 series offers a reliable RF test solution for IoT and 5G applications. Unlike OTA measurements, the signal can be tapped directly from the PC board. The mechanical sturdiness makes it suitable for harsh production environments. The test probes have particularly good, repeatably-accurate RF features. The VSWR is at least 1.3 in specified frequency ranges, the insertion loss is maximum 0.6 dB. A SMA connector or, for smaller grid sizes, a SMPM (-T) connector is used to connect the probes to the test system. A flange makes assembly in test fixtures especially easy. Tolerances are balanced out of by the test probe’s floating mount. The modular design allows the test probes to be modified for other applications.
