  • Publication number: 20190310314
    Abstract: A wireless test system includes a load board having an upper surface and a lower surface. The load board has a testing antenna disposed on the load board. A socket for receiving a device under test (DUT) having an antenna structure therein is disposed on the upper surface of the load board. The antenna structure is aligned with the testing antenna. The wireless test system further includes a handler for picking up and delivering the DUT to the socket. The handler has a clamp for holding and pressing the DUT. The clamp is grounded during testing and functions as a ground reflector that reflects and reverses radiation pattern of the DUT from an upward direction to a downward direction toward the testing antenna.
