Antenna Design & Testing Services To Optimize Performance.
Antennas are everywhere. More and more devices are incorporating wireless connectivity as the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow around the world. Antennas are the critical link to transmit and receive information using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, and Cellular (LTE, UTMS) protocols. With so many diverse applications and form factors, antennas must be tailored to optimize performance within the tight size, weight, and power constraints.

In addition to our EMC/EMI, Environmental Stress, and Photometric testing capabilities for antennas and wireless devices, Elite's wireless technical specialists have the knowledge, experience, and tools necessary to design and verify high-performance antennas for any wireless application.
Midwest Wireless Test Center
Elite's CTIA-compliant Wireless Test Chamber provides developmental and pre-compliance testing services for over-the-air (OTA) antenna performance. Key performance tests for cellular, WiFi, and other radio systems include Total Radiated Power (TRP), Total Isotropic Sensitivity (TIS), and Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) as well as antenna gain measurements with 2D and 3D graphic renderings along with S-Parameters, Efficiency, and Directivity.
Our R&S TS8991 OTA Performance Test System with a 1.4m range length and test range from 400MHz to 6GHz is fully equipped with the latest state of the art technology from Rohde & Schwarz and our system configuration is optimized for accuracy and measurement speed.
Antenna Design Consulting
Elite can help you achieve your antenna design goals. Whether an off-the-shelf or custom-designed antenna, we can evaluate your product needs and recommend the best possible option. If it is an off-the-shelf solution, our antenna design specialist can review the technical datasheets, help select the best option based on your product application, assess performance requirements, and propose an optimal location for antenna placement. If a custom antenna solution is desired, Elite has state-of-the-art electromagnetic (EM) modeling and simulation capability - simply provide a 3D model of your product for antenna feasibility studies. With careful EM simulation analysis, we can provide rapid feedback on antenna placement strategy, electromagnetic behavior, s-parameter data, antenna efficiency, and gain data. Providing evidence-based predictions of antenna performance early in the design cycle helps OEM’s make critical design decisions quicker with no unwanted surprises during a product launch.
