EIRP performance report

Item

A) Test in Taoglas 3D anechoic chamber or Outdoor environment – Full UWB EIS/ TIS Physical channel frequency analysis as per IEEE 802.15.4a-2007 UWB Device OTA test standards in line with reference kits adhering to same using Taoglas UWB antennas https://www.decawave.com/products/dw1000

 

B) If fail consult with sales for recommendations or custom solution Post-integration verification of device Effective Radiated Power (EIRP) performance. EIRP is directly dependent on the antenna performance and Taoglas is testing in 4 specific azimuth quadrants of antenna radiation pattern for modem integration. (0 90, 180, and 270 degrees) Many of the network operators in North America and the rest for the world have specific tests and metrics for radiated performance on transmit (TRP/ EIRP), receive (TIS/EIS) and co-existence/ interference (RSE). These tests enforce a minimum level of performance on the wireless product. This is done to ensure end customer use-experience expectations are met, thus protecting the carrier’s network brand. Testing these performance parameters early in the design cycle can reduce risk of certification failure and costly design and tooling changes late in the design cycle. The best way to test these parameters is through completing the real testing in a real chamber. Taoglas can currently perform these tests on any UWB device for various UWB channels using a Reference Kit with Taoglas antenna vs the customer UWB device with Taoglas designed Antenna.

B) If fail consult with Noise Control Division. Post-integration verification performance of device Effective Isotropic Sensitivity (in 4 quadrants in Azimuth plane; 0, 90, 180, & 270 degrees) EIS/ TIS is dependent on both antenna performance and system design, device emissions control. Many of the network operators in North America have specific tests and metrics for radiated performance on transmit (EIRP/TRP), receive (EIS/TIS) and coexistence interference (RSE). These tests enforce a minimum level of performance on the wireless product. This is done to ensure end customer use-experience expectations are met, thus, protecting the carrier’s network brand. Testing these performance parameters early in the design cycle can reduce risk of certification failure and costly design and tooling changes late in the design cycle. The best way to test these parameters is through completing the real testing in a real chamber or outdoor test environment. Taoglas can currently perform these tests with any of these tests enforce a minimum level of performance on the wireless product.
