Press Release Summary:
Suitable for testing of insertion loss, gain, or phase in radar system components, such as switches and filters, bolt-on V- and E-band test modules enhance frequency range of user’s vector network analyzer to V-band (69 GHz) or E-band (90 GHz). Available in custom millimeter-wave test set design, modules offer built in detector. Compatible with scalar network analyzers, unit’s RX module portion can also double as downconverter for spectrum analyzers.
Original Press Release:
New Modules Turn an Average RF Test Bench into a Millimeter-Wave Bench
Millitech, a microwave brand of Smiths Interconnect, has announced the release of a series of bolt-on V- and E-band test modules that enhance the frequency range of a user’s vector network analyzer to V-band (69 GHz) or E-band (90 GHz). These budget conscious modules can save thousands in custom millimeter-wave test set design and development costs, as this minimalized frequency extension via the standard SMA test connection.
Spartan Test ModulesTM offer built in detectors and are also compatible with scalar network analyzers. Excellent for V- and E-band testing for insertion loss, gain, or phase, these high frequency modules are a practical tool in any test lab looking to prepare for high frequency challenges. The RX module portion can also double as a downconverter for spectrum analyzers, extending a spectrum analyzers frequency range.
They’re ideally suited for radar system components, such as switches and filters, that are required to be fully tested over a wide frequency range. They work with any make, model, or vintage Vector Network Analyzer and are easily installed, only requiring the necessary interconnect.
