RTS65 The ultimate OTA system

Designed to Save Time

The RTS65 reverberation chamber is designed to optimize the time you spend on OTA measurements. Our development focus has been on increasing the productivity in your lab. We want your focus to be on the results, not the test equipment. We have developed a generation of RTS chambers that is an integrated system which will give every engineer the user experience they deserve. The latest addition to the RTS65 includes up to 16 sub-6 GHz measurement ports and innovate solutions supporting 5G measurements including directive and isotropic measurements in the 28 and 39 GHz (FR2) mmWave bands.

Multipath Environment – inherent MIMO and multi-carrier support

The RTS65 consists of a shielded reverberation chamber with reflecting walls. The device to be tested is placed on a turntable. The reflective walls in combination with moving reflectors (mode stirrers), and the turntable, create a Rayleigh faded rich isotropic multipath environment inside the chamber. We refer to this environment as “RIMP”. The multipath environment is enabled by default and moving from SISO to realistic evaluation of MIMO devices only requires a few more cables and a MIMO-enabled communication tester.

This environment is very well-suited for antenna and radio performance evaluation of modern multi-antenna (MIMO) devices such as WLAN, 4G and 5G. Bluetest’s vast experience in reverberation chamber technology development has resulted in a well-proven, highly accurate and robust OTA test system.
