TOKYO -- TDK Corporation (NYSE:TDK) announces the availability of a total solution integrated UWB evaluation and measurement system. Sales of this new system will start in both Japan and the United States in June 2005.

The total solution test system consists of wideband antennas, anechoic chambers, and software that speed up the process of compliance measurements. This automated test system performs the high precision measurements required as described by the FCC Rule Part 15 Subpart F UWB devices. A two-axis rotating structure and polarized automatic switching antennas are employed to measure emissions with the radiation patterns being displayed in three dimensions. The automated system, which is controlled via software developed at TDK, significantly reduces test time and increases the utilization of the test facility.

A key component of this new test system is TDK's original pyramid-shaped absorber material which was specifically designed for high absorption of oblique incident angle radio waves. This material reduces reflection of oblique incident angle radio waves to the side walls, ceiling and floor and allows anechoic chambers to be made substantially smaller.
