Reference Antennas
mm-Wave Chip Reference Antennas
24250.00 MHz – 64000.00 MHz

The MVG Chip Reference Antennas have been specifically developed as a reference or “gold” standard antenna for micro-probed antenna measurements. These ceramic antennas are designed to interface with 150 μm through 250 μm pitch GSG micro-probes, allowing them to be used in MVG-ORBIT/FR’s μ -Lab millimeter wave antenna test chamber, or any other 60 GHz antenna measurement system where a GSG micro-probed antenna reference is needed. These reference antennas have a nominal gain of 12 dBi. Different models are available with two orientations of linear polarization with respect to the micro-probe axis, and either top side or bottom side main beam directions.
