SPEAG has released DASY8!
Our new flagship measurement system is based on DASY6 and has been further optimized for both compliance testing and R&D measurements. It provides:
DASY8 Module SAR V16-0, Module mmWave V2-4, and Module WPT V1-2 have also been released and come with important new features, as listed below. They will also be made available for DASY6 users soon.
DASY8 is centered around Stäubli’s new high precision 6-axis robotic arm, the TX2 series, which provides the ideal combination of speed, rigidity, size, and accuracy. The Mounting Platforms (MP8) have been redesigned to provide improved mechanical rigidity and flexibility at the same time. The phantoms are now detachable and fixed at the correct location using a smart locking mechanism.
The robot arm is now interfaced with a new Quick Adapter Change System (QACSV1) that allows fast (<5s) and easy reconfiguration of the system, i.e., a change of probe system (DAE, MAGPy-DAS, third-party probes, etc.) or mounting the device positioner of DASY8-3D. The Electrical to Optical Converter (EOC8) further provides all interfaces (USB, Ethernet) for the entire functionality of the various modules. The Measurement Server (MS8) has increased computation power, enabling smarter planning of robot movements to further reduce measurement time.
The DASY8 software has five different modules. Each module has been optimized for a specific application:
Two additional DASY8 products will be released later this year:
All modules include the latest and most advanced high-performance-computing (HPC) enabled reconstruction and evaluation algorithms of Sim4Life. SPEAG is committed to continuing to bridge the gap between measurements and simulations to create even more powerful compliance and R&D tools.
SPEAG has rewritten the SAR postprocessor to semi-automate the evaluation of a device that can transmit on multiple bands simultaneously. The measurements can be performed on different DASY6 and/or DASY8 systems. Combining SAR results from different bands is done via postprocessing only, i.e., without the need for additional measurements. This has proven to be the most efficient workflow to prove compliance without any significant overestimation. Check out the video below to experience how easy Multi-TX evaluations have now become:
The most important new features and improvements of Module SAR V16-0 are:
Besides including various bug fixes, the postprocessing algorithms of Module mmWave V2-4 have been updated to the latest version of Sim4Life V6.2 so that cubic evaluations as required by the Japanese regulators are possible in addition to spherical ones.
The upcoming release, Module mmWave V3-0, will also offer a reconstruction of equivalent sources on the outer shell model of the devices. The device model can be created as a simplified device or imported as a computer aided design (CAD) model of the actual device. This means that evaluations are now also possible for non-planar surfaces and at distances closer than λ/5, overcoming two of the major limitations that existed so far. Furthermore, the new procedure will simplify the testing.
SPEAG also released DASY8 Module WPT V1-2 which further simplifies compliance testing of small to medium sized magnetic field sources by providing:
