Vertical profile CATR for 5G RF, Demod, RRM testing, and antenna system performance characterization at millimeter-wave frequencies.


The Keysight F9652A Vertical profile Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR) chamber is expected to fulfill the 5G FR2 RF in-band only, Demod, and RRM 1 Angle of Arrival (AoA) test demands over the air, for design and verification as per 3GPP, and device acceptance as per certification bodies like GCF, PTCRB and CTIA. It also provides a measurement environment for characterizing wireless and antenna system performance of 5G devices, at millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies.

The F9652A platform architecture allows the customer to configure the chamber to suit their frequency range requirements, with a wide range of available options and upgrades. Choose either in-band only (24-42 GHz or 24-55 GHz) probe feed assemblies with or without roll motor. Add extreme temperature conditions (ETC) for 3GPP conformance testing and device/UE R&D. The F9652A offers a 40 cm Quiet Zone size and device under test (DUT) holders to accommodate a wider range of UE’s.

Chamber software provides comprehensive operational control of the chamber positioner, with support for coordinate systems and measurement grids, storage/recall of chamber calibration data, and 2D/3D plotting functions. Keysight Test Automation Platform (TAP) plugins simplify the task of integrating signal and network analyzers.
