• Covering multiple frequency bands (24; 76-77; 77-81 GHz)
• 3D pan-tilt system for radar antenna’s radiation diagram and EIRP (Effective Isotropic Radiated Power) measurement.
• Robust connectors and modular fixturing for dozens of thousands of mating cycles
• Based on a semi-automatic process and high-quality fixturing for quick change over iterations
PARTS is an all-in-one solution composed of various blocks:
• R&S® AREG100A automotive radar echo generator for target generation
• Semi-automatic load/unload of radar Unit Under Test (UUT)
