TDK’s antenna evaluation anechoic chambers are designed to allow the end user to characterize various features of wireless technology as well as measure the properties of the antennas that support that radio technology.
TDK has developed two standard antenna evaluation chambers for user’s requirements. TDK’s Type A chamber is designed to provide the best performance in a moderately sized chamber. The Type B chamber is designed to provide optimized performance in a restricted size format. Both chambers utilize TDK’s one-of-kind polyethylene closed cell foam and oblique incidence absorber to provide superior performance over a broad frequency range.
These chamber designs are suitable for modern and next generation wireless characterization, as well as stand alone antenna evaluations for such technologies as WLAN, BT, RFID, ETC, Mobile Telecom, UWB, SDARS, and others. The frequency range of use is from 800 MHz to millimeter-wave applications. Other frequency ranges can also be accommodated with different chamber configurations or absorber treatment.
The features and advantages mentioned here are a direct result of TDK’s advanced development techniques for absorber materials, simulation technology and empirical design database.

Application Specific Tests
TDK microwave IS material absorber is a conductive, carbon-loaded, closed-cell polyethylene foam absorber that is designed for use in microwave and millimeter wave test chambers, antenna pattern test chambers and other special use anechoic facilities. TDK IS series absorbers are light weight yet rigid and durable, with excellent resistance to wear and damage.
