Features

  • Up to 4 PIM frequency bands for multi-band testing.
  • Single connection Passive Intermodulation and S-parameter measurements.
  • Uses Agilent E5072A ENA series network analyzers.
  • Measures PIM, return loss and insertion loss.
  • Verifies complete performance of passive components in one measurement run.
  • Cost effective solution for high volume production.
  • Well suited for R&D, Production & QA.

Both PIM and S-parameters, such as return loss or insertion loss, are essential measurements for passive components. Both must be tested in order to fully qualify a passive device. Conventional test systems require a network analyzer and separate PIM analyzers to test a device completely. If different test stations are used, the time required to connect and disconnect components can significantly exceed actual testing time.

PEM42A Graphic

AWT’s new integrated solution PEM42A allows you to measure PIM and S-parameters with a single DUT connection. It utilizes the Agilent E5072A ENA series network analyzer to perform S-parameter measurements together with AWT’s PEM42A multi band PIM analyzers. Whether for R&D, production or QA , this system is well suited for testing wideband components.

Conventional PIM analyzers are designed for a specific frequency band. Testing wide band devices requires several PIM analyzers. PEM42A multi band systems combine up to four frequency bands to one unified system. All instruments are controlled by a PEM42ACTRL Control & Switch Master Unit for synchronized measurements. PEM42A systems are a cost-effective solution, providing very fast and accurate measurements. Repeated connect / disconnect cycles for measuring PIM of DUTs in different frequency bands is a thing of the past. Both PIM and S-parameters are now measured without changing the physical connection. This results in a major reduction of overall test time and increases test throughput significantly.
