ART-Fi has announced its all-in-one SAR system validation kit (referred to as the Power Monitoring Kit or PMK) compatible with any SAR measurement system.
Dr. Benoît Derat, CEO of ART-Fi, reports that the PMK solves some longstanding issues in SAR labs. “Our compliance testing customers consistently complained about the resources required to perform a full SAR system validation. It became clear to us that system validation was the weakest link in the modern SAR lab.”
“Compliance labs must perform system verification prior to SAR testing the wireless technologies a device supports. There is also a need to perform regular validation on their SAR systems depending on the lab’s environmental conditions. With our PMK, SAR labs are now able to perform repeatable SAR system verification and validation quickly and precisely. The PMK has a frequency range from 699 MHz to 6 GHz with low signal-noise, good amplifier gain, zero moving parts and the ability to continuously monitor dipoles and the antenna S11 parameter.” Richelieu Quoi, EMEA Sales Manager at ART-Fi, explains.
Once setup, the customer inputs the expected power – any power, any frequency – and validates automatically.
According to Mr. Quoi, the PMK represents a significant step for labs. “The consolidated approach and outstanding software control means the PMK can seamlessly integrate with and improve your current SAR validation and verification process.”
The PMK features advanced technologies usually found on more expensive RF validation and verification system combinations.
