Link Microtek develops horn antennae aid testing of 5G mmW equipment

RF and microwave components and subsystem manufacturer, Link Microtek has released a family of miniature horn antennae, designed to be used for millimetre-wave (mmW) testing in 5G developments and EMC compliance.

The AMHA-V1 series of horns can be used for test houses or manufacturers of E-band radio communications equipment as either transmitters or receivers to measure a product’s electromagnetic susceptibility or emissions, in accordance with international EMC standards, laid down by organisations such as IEC, ISO and CISPR.

The AMHA-V1 series consists of six models with operating frequency bands starting from 40 to 60GHz up to 170 to 260GHz, to allow the measurement of a range of harmonics. The smallest unit covers the highest frequency band and only measures 16.6mm in length. Its WR4 waveguide opening has inner dimensions of just 1.09 x 0.55mm.

All six horns in the range deliver a typical gain of 20 to 23dBi and feature a modified standard flange design to ensure correct mounting within the test rig, says Link Microtek.

Designed and manufactured at Link Microtek’s facility in Basingstoke, UK, the AMHA-V1 mmW horns are machined and can be fabricated from either brass or aluminum, with a black satin paint finish.

Link Microtek’s core focus is the supply of components and systems to companies working in the aerospace, defence, telecommunications, industrial, scientific and medical sectors. It has a team dedicated to the sales and distribution of a range of high technology components and instrumentation from manufacturers around the world, while an engineering group focuses on the design and manufacture of products.
