LXI™-Certified High-Power Automated Tuner

MT981AL/BL/EL/VL Series

Applications & Benefits Overview

The MT981xL series LXI™ controlled automated tuners are optimized for high power in-fixture and on-wafer applications requiring low impedance and low vibration simultaneously. Based on Maury's proven non-contacting probe technology, these high-performance tuners evolve beyond outdated contacting probe technology to deliver high VSWR with superb accuracy and reliability.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, and WiFi stimulus for mobile and infrastructure terminal design, RADAR design, and Sat-Com design.

The MT981 series tuner is ideal for load pull, harmonic load pull, hybrid active load pull and all automated tuner applications.



Embedded LXI™-Certified Controller

LXI™ is the power of Ethernet and the Web applied to Test & Measurement (T&M) offering you new possibilities in test systems - local, remote, distributed, time-aware.

LXI™-Certified tuners have many advanced features including: dual TCP/IP and USB interfaces for simple, fast & reliable Control; direct ASCII commands or DLL environment for automated applications; LXI certified for seamless integration with state-of-the-art instruments; and intuitive web-interface for easy tuning.
