World’s First Automated mmW Multi-Port Test Station

first_imgAnokiwave and ATE Systems have announced the development of a multi-port mmW test station for characterization of their portfolio of Silicon Core IC solutions. Anokiwave selected ATE Systems to develop this unique test capability that features fully automated calibration for scalar power, s- parameter, and noise figure measurements for devices having up to 14 RF ports over temperature, as a solution to the complex test requirements of the highly integrated, multi-function ICs.Multiport full vector analysis is critical for testing our complex multi-channel Core ICs. Anokiwave’s Core IC solutions can revolutionize multiple markets with affordable AESA solutions. This mmW market revolution requires test systems that provide the highest levels of performance with reduced test time and unprecedented cost savings. The Anokiwave and ATE Systems are poised to embrace this market shift.Providing a new and unique approach to multi-port RF testing, the ATE Systems AD01800 test station, capable of mmW testing up to 40 GHz, enhances test accuracy and productivity. The system connects directly to a network analyzer, manages the complex signal routing and calibration of the RF ports, thus providing a significant reduction in both calibration and test times. The new capability allows Anokiwave to quickly characterize the ICs as well as run pilot-production test from its mmW laboratory.last_img read more
