Millimeter-Wave Automated Tuners

MT975/7/8/9 Series - 33.0 to 110.0 GHz - U.S. Patent No. 5,910,754

Applications & Benefits Overview

Maury's patented (U.S. Patent No. 5,910,754) MT975A, MT977A, MT978A, and MT979A millimeter-wave automated tuners are optimized for a broad class of microwave and mm-wave applications requiring flexibility, broad frequency coverage and ease of use. Based on Maury's patented ultra-high matching range technology, these high-performance tuners deliver high VSWR with superb accuracy and reliability.

As an integral component of Maury Device Characterization Solutions, these PC-based automated tuners are controlled using one of three Maury Software Solutions; Maury's MT930 series IVCAD Advanced Measurement and Modeling Software; Maury's Device Characterization Software suite (ATS version 5 or later); or Maury's DLL environment.

With a tuning resolution in excess of a million impedance points and accuracy better than -50 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 WR22 to WR10 mm-wave applications such as on-wafer load-pull for Collision Avoidance RADAR, high-capacity WLAN/WPAN/WMAN networks, military appplications, low noise characterization and mm-wave noise and power model verification.
