5G Validation Sources

5G Validation Sources 10 – 90 GHz

Applications

System validation at specific 5G frequencies available.

Cavity-fed Dipole Array

Cavity-backed array of dipoles arranged in an offset lattice according to the modes generated into the resonant cavity. The dipoles are printed onto one face of a low-loss dielectric substrate and excited by non-resonant rectangular slots located on the opposite face of the substrate.

Specifications

Cavity-backed array of dipoles:
