RF/Microwave Measurement Services

Measurement Services

Maury’s team of experienced application engineers operate its state-of-the-art characterization laboratories to provide time-sensitive measurement services each and every day. Maury customers have taken advantage of our expertise and resources to meet their objectives on time and on budget. Some of the reasons our customers work with us include: completing short term or infrequent projects, eliminating bottlenecks and accelerating delivery by working in parallel, validating in-house measurements, establishing proof-of- concept and system justification, always using state-of-the-art tools and helping their CFO by reducing capital expenditures and improving the balance sheet.

We are better suited to meet our customers’ needs due to the flexibility associated with measurement and modeling device characterization services.

Now, after decades of working with device designers (PA, LNA), process engineers, device modeling experts in delivering measurement systems and providing system training and measurement expertise, Maury is uniquely positioned to offer device measurement and characterization services to the RF & Microwave industry.
