CEDAR PARK, Texas, March 27, 2008 – ETS-Lindgren announced the launch of a new open boundary quad-ridged horn antenna, Model 3164-08, designed to meet the demands of UWB, GSM, PCS, Wi-Fi and WiMax testing. Big on performance, yet compact in design, the “open boundary” design makes this antenna unique in both appearance and capabilities. Notable features include excellent gain over the frequency range with low VSWR.
Dr. Vince Rodriguez, ETS-Lindgren's Senior Principal Antenna Design Engineer, noted, “Engineers in the wireless products industry increasingly need to perform antenna pattern measurements over an extended frequency range. Using the advantages of open boundary quad-ridge design, the Model 3164-08 antenna meets the performance objectives and provides a very stable antenna pattern at the upper end of the frequency range. The antenna is also equipped with dual ports, so simultaneous measurements can be made in two orthogonal polarizations of the field. And, using a 90-degree hybrid (not supplied), the antenna can transmit or receive circularly polarized waves.”
For added convenience, the Model 3164-08 antenna can be used on a tripod with an included flange mount, or placed in a chamber with an optional wall plate mount. When mounted on a chamber wall, the antenna's rear assembly, milled from a solid billet, prevents RF leakage in or out of the chamber. Calibrated at 10 m per ANSI 63.5, the Model 3164-08 includes actual antenna factors with gain uncertainty values and a signed Certificate of Conformance. The Model 3164-08 is available for immediate delivery with quantity pricing. For more information: www.ets-lindgren.com/3164-08.
