Antenna Consulting Service

We can support your product development team by providing expert guidance to source the perfect antenna

Selecting the Best Antenna

AEM Antennas provides expert guidance on an array of different antenna types. We can walk you through a set of requirements that makes sense for your application or help you find solutions should you have connection issues with your current product. This will help determine the best way forward.

Let us guide you through the process with a preliminary antenna consultation.

1. Preliminary Consultation

2. Review a Proposal

3. Order the Hardware

This allow us to execute the order to manufacture the hardware. We will be sure to provide status updates to keep you in the loop on progress. Once manufactured, the antennas go through an antenna test campaign and final QA to be sure they are ready to plug-and-play.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What questions do I need to answer to order an antenna?
Typical questions we ask are mostly:

  • product’s application
  • gain
  • power
  • size
  • connector
  • operating environment
How are antennas tested?
Testing an antenna to simply know that it’s working as it should can range from simple continuity tests to be sure there are no breaks in the line, to a quick return loss or VSWR sweeps to check the antenna port performance. Pattern measurements in a Compact Antenna Test Range (CATR) is recommended for a full verification of the antenna, however, boresight gain could be enough to validate a functioning unit. It’s recommended to conduct tests in an anechoic chamber to prevent reflections from being measured and provide the cleanest measurements possible.
