Millimeter-wave horn antennas for test and measurement applications

Engineer Live News Desk

Pasternack, an Infinite Electronics brand has announced the launch of its new series of millimeter-wave horn antennas. They were designed to meet the evolving needs of test and measurement applications in the fast-paced tech industry.

The new line includes a variety of waveguide probe antennas and dual polarized horn antennas, offering enhanced flexibility and performance in the 22 GHz to 170 GHz 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 deliver a nominal gain of 6.5 dBi for probe antennas and 15 dBi for dual polarized antennas, ensuring high precision in characterizing antennas and wireless systems.

The antennas offer 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 Pasternack's commitment to quality. They are linearly/circularly polarized, ensuring versatility for various testing scenarios.

The precision machining to high industry standards guarantees consistent gain versus frequency as well as low VSWR (less than 1.3), offering improved 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.”
