RTCE Antenna Testing Service
Specialists in Antenna Testing, Wireless Transmitter Evaluations and RF Compliance Services
Antenna Testing Services
RTCE specializes in rapid antenna testing, with an automated anechoic chamber for far field antenna gain and performance testing from 300 MHz to 40 GHz. We can measure broadband antenna gain patterns in 3D spherical or 2D (polar plot) formats for most antennas. Leverage our low online fixed rates and quick turn around time for your project’s success.
Antennas under 24 inches are easily accommodated in our laboratory, and we can provide swept radiation efficiency vs. frequency graphs, VSWR plots, or Axial Ratio vs. frequency along with your desired antenna patterns. Live transmitters with embedded antennas can also be tested with EIRP patterns (dBm radiation patterns) and TRP Total Radiated Power calculations. Live testing is the only way to know that your transmitter, matching circuit, and embedded antenna are all working together, and assure your customer their operating range!
All of our test result are engineer friendly, and are email supplied in Excel spreadsheets with embedded graphs. These standard spreadsheets provide the greatest opportunity for additional performance calculations and performance graphing. Our 2D polar plots are done right in Excel, and we have free downloadable 3D plotting software for rendering spherical plots on your desktop … at each test frequency.
Wireless Transmitter Testing Services
Our lab can also test your transmitters for Radiated Spurious Emissions RSE for FCC, CE, or PTCRB compliance. Get your RF product ready for formal approvals with a pre-compliance evaluation by solving and mitigating performance issues such as TRP, TIS, and harmonics before your deadline. Check out all of our testing services in the menu to the right.
Hundreds of OEMs have utilized our 25 years of radiated RF testing experience and our well equipped pre-compliance laboratory to address their product’s RF performance and compliance issues. Your prototypes and intellectual property are always held in strict confidence, since we are a “test only” house, and we do not sell design services to your competitors!
Research Triangle Compliance Engineering is located in the Research Triangle Park area of North Carolina.
