Passive Measurements

Bluetest offers a complete range of measurement software for the developer of small antennas. Common for the passive antenna types of measurement software is that a vector network analyzer is used together with the reverberation chamber for the measurements. Bluetest supports most available network analyzers on the market.

Antenna Efficiency

The radiation efficiency is a basic parameter for any type of antenna, and small antennas in particular. Bluetest provide easy-to-use and quick measurement software for accurate radiation efficiency measurements. A radiation efficiency is normally covered in a single minute, even if a wide range of frequency bands is covered.

Diversity and MIMO Measurements

A Reverberation Test System is ideally suited for testing antennas for multi-antenna technologies such as diversity and MIMO. Bluetest software 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.

Measurement algorithms and calculations implemented in the Bluetest measurement software are developed in cooperation with world leading experts on small antennas, diversity, and MIMO. Bluetest is continuously improving the software to provide the most accurate and time-efficient measurements possible.

Bluetest Diversity Measurement Software enables testing of the following parameters:

  • Diversity Gain (Effective, Apparent, Actual)
  • Branch Gain Imbalance
  • Correlation (Complex, Amplitude, Power)
  • Statistical Distribution of Received Power

Bluetest MIMO Measurement Software enables testing of for instance the following parameters:

  • MIMO Capacity
  • MIMO Capacity Distribution
  • Branch Gain Imbalance
  • Branch Correlation
