Description

GENASYS Semiconductor TS-900eX-5G mmWave test systems provide production proven 44 GHz signal delivery to the device under test (DUT), with optional VNA RF test capabilities to 53 GHz. Capable of supporting up to 40 independent VNA ports, these systems are ideal for applications requiring parallel, multi-site test capabilities.

Keysight Technologies modular vector network analyzers (VNAs) are at the heart of the TS-900eX-5G, delivering exceptional RF measurement performance and repeatability. They deliver unmatched phase and amplitude measurement accuracy across the entire band of interest, eliminating dead bands found with some instruments, a critical for requirement for mmWave semiconductor device test.

The Keysight M9807A (44 GHz) and M9808A (53 GHz) PXIe VNA instruments are the ideal VNA solution delivering modularity, speed and accuracy in a true multi-port instrument, sharing the same measurement science as PNA-X instrumentation.  Instrumentation based on a common measurement science simplifies the transition from the laboratory to the production floor, and the modular architecture provides a clearly defined path to upgrade both channel count and frequency.

Complete system-level calibration is implemented to remove signal path errors, including interconnect points such as cables, connectors, blind mate interfaces, and load board error sources such as board traces and sockets, from the test results.  A multi-step process to isolate the device under test (DUT) utilizes the industry standard practice of fixture de-embedding with verification coupons.  Fixture de-embedding is the most accurate calibration approach, but other methods such as Automatic Fixture Removal (AFR) are also available to extract S-parameters from an open fixture.

Ideally suited for any production environment, the high performance receiver interface supports both packaged or wafer test and characterization of mmWave semiconductor devices. The receiver interface is compatible with the Opus 3 and TEL probe stations, as well as the Seiko Epson E8040 and E8080 device handlers. Reid-Ashman OM-1069 and inTest manipulators are also supported.

Compact footprint, reduced power consumption and standard air cooling further contribute to the overall lower cost of ownership and reduced carbon footprint of these test systems.  

Test system startup and commissioning is significantly reduced, a critical concern when transitioning to outsourced semiconductor assembly and test (OSAT) facilities.  Typical installation and start-up time, including execution of complete system level self-test, is typically accomplished in less than one hour.
