Base Stations

For Customers in Charge of Developing and Evaluating Base Stations

In evaluating a 5G base station, it is necessary to ensure that the radio waves emitted by the sample do not affect the equipment and people in the vicinity.
Large base stations with high transmission power dissipate more heat. It is necessary to provide a stable temperature environment even with heat generation during evaluation.
ESPEC provides the products necessary for base station evaluations.

Test Systems

Systems for OTA Tests/Wireless Tests in Temperature Environments

For 5G base stations, temperature dependency evaluations in OTA measurements are required because antennas and wireless send/receive modules have been integrated into
a single unit to reduce transmission losses.
These systems are capable of conducting temperature tests while possessing the functionality of an RF anechoic chamber with an attenuation rate of 60 dB or more at 30 GHz frequencies.

  • Systems for OTA Tests/Wireless Tests in Temperature Environments
    Constant Temperature RF Anechoic Chamber
    • Enables you to conduct wireless RF performance tests under a range of temperature conditions.
    • Shielding performance → frequency range: 0.5 to 30 GHz, attenuation rate: 60 db or higher.
    • To minimize the impact on the surrounding equipment, the chamber is designed to prevent any RF leak emitted by the sample.
    • The interior of the RF anechoic chamber can be precisely controlled from low temperature to high temperature.
    • Espec's proprietary heat insulation technology prevents turntable or positioner from freezing, allowing you to execute tests under sub-freezing temperatures.

High Temperature/Low Temperature Reliability/Operation Test System

As the number of antennas increases, the antennas are densely arranged, and the greater the transmission output it becomes, the heat generation of base stations increases.
This system can provide a stable test environment from low temperatures to high temperatures for the heat generated by the base station and support a maximum heat-generation load of 68.3 kW in a -40°C environment.
You can also change the wind flow to match the installation environment and characteristics of the base station, as well as the exhaust heat direction.

  • High Temperature/Low Temperature Reliability/Operation Test System
    High-Power Walk-In Chamber
    • Provides a stable test environment from low temperatures to high temperatures for the heat generated by the base station.
    • Supports a maximum heat-generation load of 68.3 kW in
      a -40°C environment.
    • The application of power and measurement timings can be synchronized with the temperature test program by using
      the time signal terminals.
    • It is equipped with a ramp for loading and unloading heavy specimens using dollies and carts.
    • The floor load capacity of 600 kg/m2 allows the installation of heavy specimens and multiple specimens.
