Do you know what virtual probes are? Why and where they are useful in antenna measurement? Learn about oversampling and virtual probes, and their effective role in spherical near-field antenna measurements with multi-probe technology from our latest quick-read article you’ll find in the new Fast-Scan Learning resource section of our website.

It’s a quick review of the application of the Nyquist criterion in antenna measurements, how a technique called oversampling adds virtual probes to complete near-field antenna measurements for accurate near-field to far-field transformation, and what technology requiring testing can benefit from the technique.
