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, and are well proven measurements in Bluetest's reverberation chambers. The TRP and TIS measurements in a reverberation chamber are standardized and included in the 3GPP Test Specification TS 34.114.
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:
LTE-Advanced and Carrier Aggregation
Bluetest solutions provide insight into the data handling capacity of LTE devices and verify that the 4G capabilities such as MIMO and carrier aggregation are delivering on the promise of high performance wireless.
Preparing for 5G
As wireless systems and devices leap towards the next generation of connectivity, Bluetest provides the test environment to test your next generation innovations.
Bluetest systems can accommodate the unique form-factors and system complexity of todays automotive designers as wireless systems become inseparable from vehicle functionality.
Reverberation chambers inherently simplify OTA tests, but Bluetest systems go further and provide flexible, automated solutions that are accessible to everyone on the innovation team.
The power of ubiquitous data networks is rapidly expanding the number and type of devices demanded. Bluetest chambers help to quickly certify devices of all shapes and sizes.
Testing Wearable Devices
In reverberation chambers, movement is a natural part of the process, not a repeatability challenge. This means Bluetest systems provide a natural test environment for testing complex physical interactions.
Passive and Active Antennas
Bluetest reverberation chambers provide fast and intuitive insights into antenna performance. Perfect for designers faced with challenging performance requirement, complex element solutions and unique physical constraints.
The current trend in active device over-the-air (OTA) testing is to characterize the system performance via data throughput. With Bluetest measurement software the throughput can be measured at either IP or MAC layer in a fast, repeatable, and convenient way.
