LXI™-Certified 1.85mm Automated Tuners

MT985 Series - 8.0 to 65.0 GHz

Applications & Benefits Overview

Maury's MT985AL01 LXI™ controlled automated tuners are optimized for a broad class of in-fixture and on-wafer applications requiring flexibility, broad frequency coverage and ease of use. Based on Maury's proven non-contacting probe technology, these high-performance tuners evolve beyond outdated contacting probe technology to deliver high VSWR with superb accuracy and reliability.

An integral component of Maury Device Characterization Solutions, these TCP/IP and USB-interfaced automated tuners are controlled using one of four Maury Software Solutions; Maury's MT930 series IVCAD Advanced Measurement and Modeling Software; Maury's Device Characterization Software suite (ATS version 5 or later); direct ASCII command-and-control, or Maury's DLL environment.

With a tuning resolution in excess of a million impedance points and accuracy better than -40 dB over the entire Smith chart, Maury automated tuners give you the device characterization answers and critical accuracy you need to make engineering decisions with confidence. Typical applications include load-pull for CW and pulsed or modulated C-band, X-band, Ku-band and Ka-band design, as well as Sat-Com design and source-pull for CMOS and GaAs low noise characterization to 65 GHz.

The MT985 series tuner is ideal for load pull, harmonic load pull, hybrid active load pull and all automated tuner applications.
