MI-3060 EIRP Analysis
The MI-3060 EIRP Analysis software computes the EIRP (Equivalent Isotropically Radiated Power) of a transmitting antenna. The EIRP measurement capability is designed to give the operator several choices in obtaining a peak level EIRP with the option of normalizing any number of multi-axis scans. These choices are available to accommodate the many different test setups and preferences that may be encountered. The combination of this analysis and the MI-3000 data collection and sequencing capability comprise a complete EIRP measurement capability.
The MI-3060 EIRP Analysis software can be used interactively or called from the Sequencer as part of a Visual Basic Script. MI provides software options for conducting near-field or far-field tests.
MI-3060-FF EIRP Analysis
Supported far-field measurement techniques:
- A spectrum analyzer or power meter is used as the receiver with a standard gain horn as the receive antenna. The range length and losses for both transmit and receive must be known.
- The AUT is used to transmit to the SGH as the receive antenna and the normal system receiver is used to measure the received signal. A power meter is used to measure the transmit power level before the AUT. The range length is not needed for this technique.
MI-3060-NF EIRP Analysis
The supported near-field measurement technique:
- A spectrum analyzer or power meter is used to measure the transmit power level and the AUT transmit data is collected with the system receiver.
Note: Near-field operations require a phase capable receiver.
