Myriad Applications

Here at Bluetest, the reverberation chamber is more than a test box. It is a core set of technologies for which we continually find new applications - almost as fast as our users do!

As a statistical sampling platform, our systems inherently distill core insights from complex scenarios. Often, the more complex the interactions, the more useful engineers find the reverberation chamber. Today, wireless devices, their components and networks come together to provide one of the most complex, yet productive systems around. Reverberation Chambers, when paired with Bluetest innovations, regularly cut through the chaos and allow engineers and technicians to evaluate and solve problems quickly. Check-out just a few of the many applications we deliver on below:

5G Exploration and Development

We can see that the wireless industry are moving forward with the introduction of 5G. Before we see a 5G roll-out to the mass market there is still some work remaining to be done. But our customers are already now starting to run initial trials and try early deployments. We have listened to them and we have a good understanding of what they need. We have answered to their initial testing requirements and we now have the first MIMO OTA 5G measurement solution available

IoT and M2M communication

Internet of Things (IoT) and Machine to Machine or M2M communication is an application area quickly growing in importance both in the professional and domestic market. The professional segment includes different kinds of wireless metering, wireless diagnostics and supervision, while the domestic market focuses on smart home appliances. Together they include devices with a wide range

Automotive Measurements

As the variety of wireless devices and wireless connections in a car increases, there is a corresponding increase in the need for testing to ensure good functionality and performance. Automotive engineers are finding that Bluetest reverberation test systems are often the most convenient solution for understanding the effects of wireless devices in, around and embedded in vehicles.

WLAN Over-the-Air Testing

Although WLAN has been around for many years it has during the last couple of years grown rapidly in importance, driven mainly by the introduction of WLAN into mobile devices and operators offloading data from their cellular networks. Another force contributing to the strong growth is the trend to have “everything” connected, for example home appliances as well as different types of metering and sensors.

The Impact of Mobile Phone Covers

It is common nowadays to add a cover to your mobile phone, both for protection and esthetical reasons. They are available in many different stores including the mobile operator branded stores. The material and form varies considerably from one cover to another. You can get everything from plastic and rubber covers to silicon or metal. Of course the different materials have pros and cons. Some are more protective, even against the delivery of data. The question that follows is; how does a cover affect the performance of the antenna?

Bridging the Gap

For the last couple of decades, reverberation technology was soley used as a tool for engineers specializing in electromagnetic compliance (EMC) testing. Bluetest innovations have transformed this technology into a powerful solution tuned to the needs of current wireless developers. They are the next generation of over-the-air (OTA) test systems that bridge the testing gap between conducted and drive test methods.

Diversity and MIMO Measurements

A reverberation chamber is ideally suited for testing antennas for multi-antenna technologies such as diversity and MIMO. Bluetest Flow for diversity and MIMO measurements are well-proven and will give you instant feedback of the performance of the antenna array after the measurement is finished - no waiting time needed! In combination with the extreme measurement speed, the user will have the antenna performance in a single minute only.

Antenna Efficiency

Antenna efficiency goes under the category of Bluetest passive measurements in the reverberation chamber. An important parameter for all different types of antennas is radiation efficiency and is a basic parameter for all antenna designs. In fact, it is the dominating factor for antenna performance in multipath environments.

TRP/TIS Measurements

Total Radiated Power (TRP) and Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS) goes under the category of Bluetest's active measurements. Active measurements means that the transmitter/receiver in the DUT is active and powered up. Active measurements will give you a complete overview of how the whole system in your device is performing. These are parameters directly related to the antenna radiation efficiency,
