GIM-03

GIM-03 is  the Mighty Gimbal used for mmWave system level testing. Wiring of the DUT is done with on axis pass-throught channels to prevent tangling. The Device Under Test is mounted on the laser guided 3D gimbal rotating platform. The 3D gimbal is controlled over a simple USB connection with open source software (source provided) containing all the functions and API to run and plot a full spherical (or partial) radiation pattern graph up to 1 degree resolution (64000 points). The outcome of the plot is a Comma Separated Values (.csv) heat-map file listing all capture position and captured data.
