IMST integrates Radiation Performance for LoRa Certification with Keysight

19.9.2016 15:02 | Business Wire

Del

About one year ago, IMST was selected as an accredited LoRa™ Alliance certification test house for LoRaWAN™ certification. “The Certification testing against LoRaWAN V1.0.1 is a success story with more and more end-devices becoming available that have been certified”, said Derek Hunt, Chairman of the LoRa Alliance Certification Committee. However the possibility of connecting an end-device to an operator’s network successfully also depends on the quality of the radio implementation of the end-device.

“Operators should impose minimum end-device radio performance criteria to be able to ensure consistent service to all end-users. A way to achieve this is to add radiation performance measurements to the product test cycle”, says Markus Ridder, Head of the Test Department at IMST.

The test setup for the radiation performance was developed and tested in close cooperation with Keysight Technologies.

From a regulatory point of view the main requirement for 868 MHz ISM devices is that the device’s ERP should not radiate in excess of +14 dBm (or 25 mW) for any orientation. This sets the upper bound on the end-device radiated power and also includes the duty cycle restrictions. In general, with the measured effective TRP (Total Radiated Power) the first quality characteristic of an end device can be derived.

“The operator needs to ensure that the end device actually radiates as much power as possible to maximize the robustness and usable data rate of the uplink”, says Mats Hansen from DIGIMONDO, who operate the first public LoRaWAN network in Germany. “In addition a measurement of the device’s receiver performance is required”, states Hansen. This is derived from the fact that LoRaWAN networks are symmetrical, bi-directional networks implying that the receiver performance of the end-device is also important.

For this the TIS (Total Isotropic Sensitivity) is measured, allowing for bi-directional performance characterisation of the end device.

Both measurements are performed in the accredited radio metrology laboratory at IMST. The software required on the end-devices is already installed on the end device if it has already passed the LoRaWAN Certification, which can also be performed in IMST laboratories.

The report that IMST provides as the output from LoRaWAN Radiation Performance measurement gives antenna diagrams showing the minimum and maximum values for the TRP and TIS. Based on these figures, a network operator can grade devices and ensure a good and smooth network availability and performance. Within development these measurements would help manufacturer to improve their designs.

Ruud Schellekens, CEO of 1M2M said:”We like to base our development on facts. IMST’s LoRa measurement reports give us just that!”
