Description

The TS-900e-5G mmWave test systems deliver proven performance up to 50 GHz. Two system configurations are available. The TS-900e-5G incorporates laboratory grade PXIe RF instrumentation with a high performance receiver interface for packaged or wafer test / characterization of mmWave devices and the TS-900eX-5G provides users the option to configure the system with LXI or PXIe RF instrumentation. In addition, MTS offers a full suite of digital and parametric test capabilities as well as SPI/I2C interface support for controlling / monitoring the device under test (DUT). Both systems offer a total of 20 PXI / PXIe peripheral slots which can accommodate additional digital and analog test resources.

TS-900e-5G Test System

The TS-900e-5G's compact footprint is the ideal test solution for semiconductor OEMs, device verification, incoming inspection, wafer probing and packaging / test vendors needing a cost-effective, configurable mmWave test system. For multi-site test applications requiring expanded port and instrumentation needs, the TS-900eX-5G offers an expanded  RF port count and the option to incorporate both PXI and LXI instrumentation.

TS900eX-5G Test System

Both systems are compatible with prober and automated device handlers and utilize the same receiver interface, providing device interface board (DIB) compatibility between the two systems. The receiver interface is compatible with the Opus 3 and TEL probe stations as well as the Seiko Epson E8040 & E8080 device handlers. The TS-900e-5G is available with the Reid-Ashman OM-1069 manipulator and the TS-900eX-5G system is available with an inTest manipulator.

The systems include a PXIe chassis with 64 dynamic digital I/O channels, 64 static digital I/O channels, a user programmable power supply, a system self-test and fixture. Additional PXIe slots are available for adding RF instrumentation, more digital and analog test resources as needed.

System software includes DIOEasy for digital waveform editing / display, ICEasy for device test development, and Marvin Test Solutions' ATEasy which provides an integrated and complete test executive and test development environment, allowing users to quickly develop and easily maintain test applications.

Features

Both systems can be configured with up to 256 dynamic digital channels. The digital subsystem uses the GX5295 - a 3U PXI, 32 channel, 100 MHz digital I/O card with per channel parametric measurement units (PMUs). A wide range of digital and analog instrument options can easily be incorporated into the TS-900e-5G systems for supporting both functional and DC parametric test capabilities. RF instrumentation options include the Keysight M9807 / M9808 PXIe VNA or the Rohde and Schwarz ZNBT40 LXI instruments.
