GIM04 is MilliBox’s latest generation of mmWave and THz positioners. It can control three axes of rotation in elevation, azimuth and polarization from a single USB controller. Its construction allows GIM04 to adjust to various DUT form factors. GIM04 adds a new level of versatility for daily over-the-air measurements.
POLARIZATION CONTROL: GIM04 positioners support the new X-Pol platform system adding polarization as a third axis to the device under test (DUT) control in addition to elevation and azimuth axes.
ROBUST AND ACCURATE: All gears in GIM04 are made of precision machined Delrin material for higher strength, precsion and long life span. GIM04 base motor has 20 W of power with a step resolution of 0.002 degree.
ADJUSTABLE PLATORM DEPTH: The DUT platform can be placed at two depth from rotation axis: This makes is easier to accommodate various DUT thickness and form factors.
MODULAR SIZE: GIM04 comes in four standard sizes all based on the same components. Upsizing and downsizing is possible as DUT requirements evolves over time.
CABLE ROUTING: To bring power, control or RF to the DUT efficiently, GIM04 provides pass-thru channels at the center of each rotation axis and numerous anchor points along the path. This way, no connectors or slip rings are needed from source to DUT.
OPEN FRAMEWORK: As with all our other positioners, GIM04 is controlled by a Python based software provide in source which allows easy integration with any instrument or DUT with several built-in capture modes in multiple dimensions.
A demonstration of GIM04 will take place at IMS2021 in booth 1528.
