MiCOM Labs is currently in the process of developing an automated system that can not only speed up testing time, but can automate the creation of test reports. This is groundbreaking news for product manufacturers because the sooner they can receive certification, the sooner they can release their product to the market. Stay tuned for future updates in development!

This reason is why MiCOM Labs is proud to announce the addition of a new A2LA certified OTA anechoic antenna chamber. With this chamber MiCOM will be able to test a variety of antennas, as well as have the capability to accurately emulate wireless channels in a controlled environment. Software in the lab also allows clients to make use of 2-D and 3-D data plots for development and certification purposes. With these tools at their disposal, MiCOM Labs is sure to meet many client needs.
