RF and microwave measurement is critical in many industry sectors such as aerospace, automobile, electronics, manufacturing and healthcare, as it has great impact on quality of products and services; performance and reliability of equipment; health and safety of the people.
The RF and Microwave Laboratory has upgraded their primary power measurement system (i.e., microcalorimeter) with Type-N connection. Through this development, new capability for directly calibrating commercial reference standards (e.g., thermistor mounts) has been established. A trilateral comparison covering the operating frequency from 10 MHz to 18 GHz has been organized with other NMIs. This trilateral comparison was successfully completed in 2019 and validated the equivalence with excellent agreements of newly established Type-N microcalorimeter with other NMIs. The laboratory is also working on the development of high-frequency material measurement system for dielectric properties at metrology level.
The RF and Microwave Laboratory develops, maintains and disseminates the RF, microwave and millimeter-wave related national measurement standards in Singapore. NMC has set up and is continuing to improve national standards through R&D activities in this area to better meet the needs of the industry. Scope of Works: reference standards, measurement technologies, calibration services and collaboration projects in RF and microwave area.
