octoScope octoBox Wireless Testing System

octoScope introduced their octoBox wireless testing system. octoBox is a tool for the OTA testing of conventional and MIMO wireless devices. It features a customizable refrigerator sized anechoic (non-echoing) enclosure that replaces expensive walk-in anechoic chambers and facilitates test setup. octoBox can be used to design, test and verify multi-radio devices such as smartphones and USB dongles. octoBox is available now.

octoBox Wireless Testing System Features

    octoScope octoBox wireless testing system

  • Compact anechoic RF enclosure houses controlled over-the-air (OTA) test setup for R&D, QA and production test
  • Dual-chamber design enables test instrumentation and the DUT to reside in the same enclosure(isolated from the interference of neighboring stations)
  • Ideal for less technical groups, such as customer support and marketing
  • Accurate OTA testing of conventional and MIMO wireless devices
  • Enclosure replaces expensive walk-in anechoic chambers and facilitates test setup
  • Repeatable and accurate test and validation methodology
  • Reduces development and production costs for multi-mode wireless devices
  • Speeds up time to market by several months
  • Enable OEMs to efficiently test smartphones and other such wireless devices fully assembled with their antennas
  • Supports simultaneous testing of up to eight small devices and simultaneous testing of multiple radios in a single device
  • Form factor that fits in a production lab or an engineer’s office
  • Provides stable far-field conditions with advantages for OTA measurement accuracy, sensitivity and repeatability
  • Measures DUT 3D antenna pattern
  • Integrates test equipment, including a MIMO channel emulator, interference generators, RF sensors, data monitors and other instruments
  • Supports a wide frequency range from 700 MHz to 6 GHz
  • Can be used for testing multi-radio smartphones, with radios that include cellular, 3G/4G, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS, all operating in different regions of the spectrum
