The XT982xL series 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 Based on Maury's proven non-contacting probe technology, these high-performance tuners evolve beyond outdated contacting probe technology to deliver high VSWR with superb accuracy and reliability.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 using CW, GSM/EDGE, CDMA, WCDMA, WiMax, WiBro, and WiFi stimulus for mobile and infrastructure terminal design, X-band and Ku-band design, Sat-Com design, and source-pull for CMOS and GaAs low noise characterization.
The XT982 series tuner is ideal for load pull, harmonic load pull, hybrid active load pull and all automated tuner applications.
XT-series tuners represent the next evolution in tuner technology. Faster, more accurate, more repeatable.
Upgraded mechanics result in a 5%-20% faster mechanical movement, 20%-40% faster tuner characterization and 10%-15% faster VSWR test.
Linear encoders on the horizontal axis ensure accurate carriage positioning and improve repeatability by 5-8dB.
Optional High Speed Profile further improves XT tuner speed and results in a 30%-80% faster mechanical movement, 40%-60% faster tuner characterization and 25%-35% faster VSWR test (High-speed profile has been optimized for connectorized measurements).
