More

The SMART^E 5100 is a complete test environment for testing T/R (and other RF/microwave) modules. It provides the stimulus and measurement resources required for performing a complete suite of transmit and receive mode tests to ensure that the amplitude and phase control functions meet their specifications. The environment is particularly adept at high fidelity error-corrected s-parameter measurements at very high throughput rates. The Model 5100 encompasses hardware, software, test practices and support along with standard and customizable test programs tailored to the specific problems of testing high performance modules utilized in a variety of phased array radars. The unique combination of integrated tests, system calibration methods and greater throughput in the 5100 provides a superior solution for the testing of the thousands of modules required for phased array radar.
