New mmWave horn antennas deliver precision in test and measurement

06-06-2024 | Pasternack | Passives

Pasternack has launched its new series of mmWave horn antennas. They were developed to meet the evolving requirements of test and measurement applications in the fast-paced tech industry.

The new line includes various waveguide probe antennas and dual polarised horn antennas, delivering enhanced flexibility and performance in the 22GHz to 170GHz frequency range.

The mmWave horn antennas come in sizes ranging from WR-6 to WR-34, equipped with U-round, U-square, U-mod and U cover flanges. They provide a nominal gain of 6.5dBi for probe antennas and 15dBi for dual polarised antennas, ensuring high precision in characterising antennas and wireless systems.

The antennas provide a wide selection of frequency options and a rectangular waveguide interface for optimal performance. They are constructed from high-grade copper with a gold plating finish, reflecting the company's commitment to quality. They are linearly/circularly polarised, ensuring versatility for various testing scenarios.

Precision machining to high industry standards ensures consistent gain versus frequency and low VSWR (less than 1.3), improving accuracy and reliability in test and measurement tasks.

"These mmWave horn antennas are set to enhance the way professionals in the industry conduct tests and measurements," said product line manager Kevin Hietpas. "They offer a blend of performance and flexibility."
