LXI™-Certified Multi-Harmonic Automated Tuners

MT98xML Series - 0.65 GHz to 26.5 GHz

Applications & Benefits Overview

The MT98xML series LXI™-certified, two-carriage and three-carriage automated tuners are optimized for a broad class of infixture and on-wafer applications requiring simultaneous high-gamma and multiple-frequency tuning. Based on Maury's proven non-contacting probe technology, these high-performance tuners evolve beyond outdated contacting probe technology to deliver high VSWR with superb accuracy and reliability.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 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 over the entire Smith chart, Maury automated tuners give you the device characterization answers you need with the accuracy necessary to make engineering decisions with confidence. Typical applications include load pull using CW and pulsed harmonic load pull for GaAs and GaN characterization, 2G/3G/4G base stations and mobile handsets, wireless connectivity (WiMax, WiBro, WLAN), Sat-Com, and other L/S/C/X/Ku/K-band applications.

The MT98xML-series LXI™-certified harmonic tuner is ideal for load pull, harmonic load pull, hybrid active load pull and all automated tuner applications.


XT-Tuner-L-1a

XT Technology

XT-series tuners represent the next evolution in tuner technology. Faster, more accurate, more repeatable.

Upgraded mechanics result in a 20%-75% faster mechanical movement, 30%-40% faster tuner characterization and 20%-25% faster VSWR test.

Linear encoders on the horizontal axis ensure accurate carriage positioning and improve repeatability by 5-10dB.

Optional High Speed Profile further improves XT tuner speed and results in a 40%-100% faster mechanical movement, 50%-85% faster tuner characterization and 35%-40% faster VSWR test (High-speed profile has been optimized for connectorized measurements).

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 and standardized LXI for seamless integration with state-of-the-art instruments.
