SATIMO Innovates With MIMO Test Systems!

PARIS, May 10, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- SATIMO launches new systems that offer laboratories effective solutions to test the influence of Multiple Input/ Multiple Output (MIMO) signals on the performance of wireless devices. MIMO device testing has become necessary due to the increasing use of multiple antennas in single pieces of equipment.

The Telecom sector has been rapidly evolving toward the "4G" (WiMAX, LTE) which provides more functions and improved connectivity for wireless network and devices. To secure the connection and ensure higher rates, manufacturers in the Telecom sector now use MIMO technology. This technology is based on the integration of several antennas in an emitter (base station) or receiver (wireless communication device). Laboratory testing of this technology raises complex challenges.

In a real environment, either indoor or outdoor, a signal emitted by an antenna reflects off surrounding obstacles to form several signals. To measure the performance of a MIMO antenna system, the various environmental influences on a signal must be taken into account by modeling the direct signals, reflected signals (multipath), and any interfering signals (coming from competing emitters). A MIMO system must therefore simulate different electromagnetic environments in order to evaluate and optimize the performance of mobile devices in real operational conditions.

With over 10 years of experience in multi-probe technology, SATIMO has developed a family of MIMO test systems that best answers these technical requirements.

The uniqueness of the systems is based on the use of an arch that integrates many probes and an instantaneous calibration unit to speed up the measurement time. Both easy to use and extremely fast, these systems perfectly answer industrial expectations. With these new systems, SATIMO, already a leader in the antenna measurement market, strengthens its position in the Telecom sector.

SATIMO profile: SATIMO Industries SAS is a French subsidiary of the Microwave Vision Group, listed on the ALTERNEXT stock exchange (FR0004058949 - ALMIC). The company develops, manufactures, and markets electromagnetic field measurement systems. With a large choice of technical solutions, SATIMO possesses thorough technical expertise in the field of microwave measurements: mechanical or electronic scanning, anechoic or free space field strength measurements, software, mechanical design, system integration and antenna technology.
