5G Multiport Testing: Different Configurations for Different Components

Driving down the cost of test is a key challenge in high-volume component manufacturing. The trend towards adding more ports on components such as antennas, cables, and frontend modules (FEMs) increases the need for accurate and fast multiport network analysis. Minimizing operator intervention and reducing connection and calibration times is essential to increase measurement throughput. Optimizing your vector network analyzer (VNA) configuration is critical to minimizing the cost of test in manufacturing. That’s when the multiport and multisite testing concepts come in, but there are challenges.

How RF Trends are Impacting Connectors

When it comes to electronics, technology is moving forward at a rapid pace and component manufacturers are trying to keep up. Devices are becoming smaller and more complex, whether it is a smartphone, medical imaging device, or a remote sensor accessing military satellite systems.  At the same time, the devices still need to be rugged enough to withstand enormous amounts of wear and tear while offering unhindered data transmission and collection capabilities. With these evolving requirements, connector components have to be redesigned for these devices.
