4. SAR Measurement System & Test Equipment
4.1.
SAR Measurement System
The DASY5 system used for performing compliance tests consists of the following items:









A standard high precision 6-axis robot with controller, teach pendant and software. An arm extension for
accommodating the data acquisition electronics (DAE).
An isotropic Field probe optimized and calibrated for the targeted measurement.
A data acquisition electronics (DAE) which performs the signal amplification, signal multiplexing, ADconversion, offset measurements, mechanical surface detection, collision detection, etc. The unit is battery
powered with standard or rechargeable batteries. The signal is optically transmitted to the EOC.
The Electro-optical converter (EOC) performs the conversion from optical to electrical signals for the digital
communication to the DAE. To use optical surface detection, a special version of the EOC is required. The
EOC signal is transmitted to the measurement server.
The function of the measurement server is to perform the time critical tasks such as signal filtering, control of
the robot operation and fast movement interrupts.
The Light Beam used is for probe alignment. This improves the (absolute) accuracy of the probe positioning.
A computer running WinXP or Win7 and the DASY5 software.
Remote control and teach pendant as well as additional circuitry for robot safety such as warning lamps, etc.
The phantom, the device holder and other accessories according to the targeted measurement.

4.2. SAR Scan Procedures
Step 1: Power Reference Measurement
The Power Reference Measurement and Power Drift Measurements are for monitoring the power drift of the device
under test in the batch process. The minimum distance of probe sensors to surface determines the closest
measurement point to phantom surface. The minimum distance of probe sensors to surface is 2.1 mm. This
distance cannot be smaller than the distance of sensor calibration points to probe tip as defined in the probe
properties.
Step 2: Area Scan
The Area Scan is used as a fast scan in two dimensions to find the area of high field values, before doing a fine
measurement around the hot spot. The sophisticated interpolation routines implemented in DASY software can find
the maximum locations even in relatively coarse grids. When an Area Scan has measured all reachable points, it
computes the field maximal found in the scanned area, within a range of the global maximum. The range (in dB) is
specified in the standards for compliance testing. For example, a 2 dB range is required in IEEE Standard 1528
and IEC 62209 standards, whereby 3 dB is a requirement when compliance is assessed in accordance with the
ARIB standard (Japan). If only one Zoom Scan follows the Area Scan, then only the absolute maximum will be
taken as reference. For cases where multiple maximums are detected, the number of Zoom Scans has to be
increased accordingly.

Issue Date: 8/30/2016
Step 3: Zoom Scan
Zoom Scans are used to assess the peak spatial SAR values within a cubic averaging volume containing 1 g and
10 g of simulated tissue. The Zoom Scan measures points (refer to table below) within a cube whose base faces
are centered on the maxima found in a preceding area scan job within the same procedure. When the
measurement is done, the Zoom Scan evaluates the averaged SAR for 1 g and 10 g and displays these values
next to the job’s label.
Zoom Scan Parameters extracted from KDB 865664 D01 SAR Measurement 100 MHz to 6 GHz
Step 4: Power drift measurement
The Power Drift Measurement measures the field at the same location as the most recent power reference
measurement within the same procedure, and with the same settings. The Power Drift Measurement gives the field
difference in dB from the reading conducted within the last Power Reference Measurement. This allows a user to
monitor the power drift of the device under test within a batch process. The measurement procedure is the same as
Step 1.
Step 5: Z-Scan (FCC only)
The Z Scan measures points along a vertical straight line. The line runs along the Z-axis of a one-dimensional grid.
In order to get a reasonable extrapolation the extrapolated distance should not be larger than the step size in Zdirection.

8. Dielectric Property Measurements & System Check
8.1.
Dielectric Property Measurements
The temperature of the tissue-equivalent medium used during measurement must also be within 18C to 25C and
within ± 2C of the temperature when the tissue parameters are characterized.
The dielectric parameters must be measured before the tissue-equivalent medium is used in a series of SAR
measurements. The parameters should be re-measured after each 3 – 4 days of use; or earlier if the dielectric
parameters can become out of tolerance; for example, when the parameters are marginal at the beginning of the
measurement series.
Tissue dielectric parameters were measured at the low, middle and high frequency of each operating frequency
range of the test device.
For SAR measurement systems that have implemented the SAR error compensation algorithms documented in
IEEE Std 1528-2013, to automatically compensate the measured SAR results for deviations between the measured
and required tissue dielectric parameters, the tolerance for εr and σ may be relaxed to ± 10%. This is limited to
frequencies ≤ 3 GHz.

System Check
SAR system verification is required to confirm measurement accuracy, according to the tissue dielectric media,
probe calibration points and other system operating parameters required for measuring the SAR of a test device.
The system verification must be performed for each frequency band and within the valid range of each probe
calibration point required for testing the device. The same SAR probe(s) and tissue-equivalent media combinations
used with each specific SAR system for system verification must be used for device testing. When multiple probe
calibration points are required to cover substantially large transmission bands, independent system verifications are
required for each probe calibration point. A system verification must be performed before each series of SAR
measurements using the same probe calibration point and tissue-equivalent medium. Additional system verification
should be considered according to the conditions of the tissue-equivalent medium and measured tissue dielectric
parameters, typically every three to four days when the liquid parameters are re-measured or sooner when
marginal liquid parameters are used at the beginning of a series of measurements.

The measurements were performed in the flat section of the TWIN SAM or ELI phantom, shell thickness: 2.0
±0.2 mm (bottom plate) filled with Body or Head simulating liquid of the following parameters.
The depth of tissue-equivalent liquid in a phantom must be ≥ 15.0 cm for SAR measurements ≤ 3 GHz and ≥
10.0 cm for measurements > 3 GHz.
The DASY system with an E-Field Probe was used for the measurements.
The dipole was mounted on the small tripod so that the dipole feed point was positioned below the center
marking of the flat phantom section and the dipole was oriented parallel to the body axis (the long side of the
phantom). The standard measuring distance was 10 mm (above 1 GHz) and 15 mm (below 1 GHz) from dipole
center to the simulating liquid surface.
The coarse grid with a grid spacing of 15 mm was aligned with the dipole.
For 5 GHz band - The coarse grid with a grid spacing of 10 mm was aligned with the dipole.
Special 7x7x7 (below 3 GHz) and/or 8x8x7 (above 3 GHz) fine cube was chosen for the cube.
Distance between probe sensors and phantom surface was set to 3 mm.
For 5 GHz band - Distance between probe sensors and phantom surface was set to 2.5 mm
The dipole input power (forward power) was 100 mW.
The results are normalized to 1 W input power.

SAR Measurement Variability
In accordance with published RF Exposure KDB 865664 D01 SAR measurement 100 MHz to 6 GHz. These
additional measurements are repeated after the completion of all measurements requiring the same head or body
tissue-equivalent medium in a frequency band. The test device should be returned to ambient conditions (normal
room temperature) with the battery fully charged before it is re-mounted on the device holder for the repeated
measurement(s) to minimize any unexpected variations in the repeated results.
1) Repeated measurement is not required when the original highest measured SAR is <0.8 or 2 W/kg (1-g or 10-g
respectively); steps 2) through 4) do not apply.
2) When the original highest measured SAR is ≥ 0.8 or 2 W/kg (1-g or 10-g respectively), repeat that
measurement once.
3) Perform a second repeated measurement only if the ratio of largest to smallest SAR for the original and first
repeated measurements is > 1.20 or 3 (1-g or 10-g respectively) or when the original or repeated measurement
is ≥ 1.45 or 3.6 W/kg (~ 10% from the 1-g or 10-g respective SAR limit).
4) Perform a third repeated measurement only if the original, first, or second repeated measurement is ≥ 1.5 or
3.75 W/kg (1-g or 10-g respectively) and the ratio of largest to smallest SAR for the original, first and second
repeated measurements is > 1.20 or 3 (1-g or 10-g respectively).
