Description

The TS-960EX-5G mmWave test system delivers proven performance up to 50 GHz. The system incorporates laboratory grade RF instrumentation with a high performance receiver  interface for multi-site production test or device characterization of mmWave devices. 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).

The base system includes 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 or analog test resources as needed. Optionally, the system can be configured with LXI RF instrumentation for supporting a range of mmWave test needs.

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.

For production test applications requiring integration with an automated handler, the TS-960EX-5G is available with an inTEST manipulator which provides precise positioning of the test head and the flexibility to interface to automated probers and device handlers.
The TS-960EX-5G's device interface board (DIB) / receiver interface is designed to be compatible with virtually any device handler.

Features

The TS-96EX-5G can be configured with up to 256 dynamic digital channels. The base TS-960EX-5G platform 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-960EX-5G 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.
The system is also available with digital vector conversion tools that support ASCII, WGL, STIL, VCD, eVCD and ATP vector formats.
