NPAC

NPAC is MVG’s source and receiver allowing multiprobes systems to measure passive antenna much faster (factor 3 to 5) than most Vector Networks Analysers available on the market. Coupled with the Active CW Unit and the PRU (Phase Recovery Unit) the NPAC can now measure standalone devices transmitting a CW transmitted signals or a modulated signal (up to 50MHz bandwidth) and compute a Near-Field to Far-Field transform ensuring to visualize real Far-Field data.
