May 27, 2010

OULU, Finland and PARIS, May 27, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — EB (Elektrobit), a
leading developer of cutting edge embedded technology solutions for wireless
and automotive industries and SATIMO, an industry leader in electromagnetic
field measurements in the microwave frequency range, announced their
partnership on MIMO Over-the-Air (OTA) testing. The partnership combines the
expertise of SATIMO and EB to offer a test solution that integrates the best
performing technologies: multi-probe spherical measurement geometry,
instantaneous calibration of the test system and high performance radio
channel emulator.

“As the end-user performance requirements of new MIMO mobile devices
constantly increase, it introduces new testing challenges for wireless device
manufactures. We are glad to be able to provide a reliable and easy-to-use
solution to the market together with our partner SATIMO” says Antti Sivula,
senior vice president of EB’s Wireless Communications Tools Business.

EB launched industry’s first commercially available MIMO OTA emulator in
February 2010. The EB Propsim F8 MIMO OTA emulator can produce signals in any
geometry based channel model for a flexible number of probes. The emulator is
integrated in SATIMO’s testing solution, together with a circular multi-probe
arch, an instantaneous calibration unit, an amplification unit and a radio
communication tester. This partnership provides a fully-operational MIMO OTA testing solution for the Telecom industry.

“The demand for such a solution has been growing strongly in the last few
months. We are proud to offer thanks to this partnership a solution that
perfectly fits the needs of wireless device manufacturers in terms of speed,
performance and flexibility” tells Gianni Barone, sales director of SATIMO.
