RF Technology Centre

The RF Anechoic Chamber is located on the 2nd Floor of the Synergy/CASH building. The chamber is fully screened and fitted with RF absorbers. A device under test is fitted on the turntable, located 3m from the measuring antenna. Frequency of operation is 30MHz to 3GHz for investigative and research work.
