The mmWave RF Shield Box, TC-5530B was an advent of the changing times. Previously conducted measurements were predicated on wired device-under-test (DUT) probe points, were feasible test methods given lower frequency technology. Now with the higher frequencies, more precise higher frequency devices, the TC-5530B was born to help tackle the difficult OTA testing tasks.   Over-the-air (OTA) tests are required for 5G New Radio (5G NR) mmWave spectrum technologies because components designed for mmWave devices are compact with no place to probe. Unfortunately, measuring performance via OTA methods increases difficulty achieving accurate, reproducible results. These complexities are exacerbated by high frequency path loss and wideband noise, as well as high frequency and wideband’s impact on frequency response.

At these higher frequencies, increased path loss between instruments and DUTs often results in low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). In turn, this induces difficulty in acquiring signal analysis measurements including error vector magnitude (EVM). Additionally, wideband also negatively impacts SNR. While wideband enables advantages such as higher throughput, faster data rate, and lower latency, it comes with a cost: more noise is introduced to the system. Transmitted signals must now compete with a channel’s higher noise floor in order to be accurately detected. Finally, high operation frequency and wideband also make DUT isolation and characterization more arduous. Test system components such as cables, connectors, and fixtures between the signal analyzer and DUT contribute to erroneous frequency responses in amplitude and phase, degrading modulation quality.

Add the right mmWave RF test equipment and this makes a perfect combination!
