Millimeter Wave Products Inc. of Largo, Florida has just opened their new anechoic chamber for advanced millimeter wave testing. The new 65 x 20 foot room, insulated from exterior noise sources, is designed to test for millimeter wave and microwave frequencies.
The sealed environmentally controlled chamber is lined with special absorbing material that helps radio technicians test and measure results for equipment specifically in the millimeter wave spectrum that are configured for the 8GHz to 320GHz spectrum.
“It’s one of the few anechoic test chambers that allow testing solely for millimeter wave signals,” explains company president Mark Smith. “Most anechoic chambers are created for cell phone testing, like you see at Apple Inc. but our chamber which is coated for millimeter wave and microwave signals, has a longer dimension of 65 feet that lets us test bigger antennas as well. Not all Anechoic chambers are the same, the design of the material helps isolate certain radio frequencies, and in our case, it’s designed for targeting the millimeter wave frequency range. We want to provide our clients with test results that give them the absolute best quality product and this chamber is one of the things we have in place that separates us from other millimeter wave components providers throughout the world.”
The chamber is available for use commercial,military, university and research labs to use as a test facility. Please inquire with us for lease rates (daily,weekly, etc..).
Some history: Anechoic chambers is a term by American acoustics expert Leo Beranek. It was originally used in the context of acoustics (sound waves) to minimize the reflections of a room to reduce background noise. More recently, these chabers have been designed to reduce reflection and external noise in radio frequencies and are commonly used to test antennas, radars, or electromagnetic interference.
