Test chambers that never compromise on performance, safety, or environmental responsibility
Not all chambers offer the same performance or quality. All reverberation, fully and semi-anechoic chambers provided by AR RF/Microwave Instrumentation, offer customers the highest level of performance, quality, and support. One unique advantage is the pan shield design, which allows for premium performance and seamless construction over older designs techniques, such as wood core shielded chambers. The pan-type shield's baseline performance is far more reliable and exceeds 100 dBA level of attenuation up to 40 GHz without any modifications or add-ons. This performance provides an excellent testing environment for your testing needs.
Selecting the right cable is crucial for both Microwave and mmWave applications. Indeed, measurements are not accurate nor reliable unless appropriate cables are used. This video outlines how to select the most appropriate cable for any given purpose.
During microwave and mmWave measurement processes, a cable's reliability – particularly its phase stability – is critical. Junkosha has developed a cable with minimal phase fluctuation against bending, which has been achieved through innovative materials and processing technology.
When measuring the performance of the DUT, if the shift of the data transmission timing – also known as skew – occurs between multiple cable connections, the performance of the DUT cannot be accurately determined. Junkosha has developed a stable transmission rate cable against bending.
Cable reliability, especially phase stability against Temperature change, is of critical importance in microwave and mmWave measuring. Junkosha has developed cables with excellent phase stability against temperature change through innovative materials and processing technology.
Cable flexibility is important for stable measurement and wiring efficiency between the measuring equipment and device under test. Junkosha provides flexible and low resilience coaxial cables which improve workability with complex wiring and reduces the risk of damage to the instruments and DUT.
When a relay fails, the test system becomes unreliable leading to a suspension of production. Getting it back up and running becomes the main priority. The first step is to accurately diagnose the fault.
Signal switching is mechanical in most test systems, and as such, is the most likely component of a test system to fail due to normal wear and tear or damage due to the switch specs being exceeded, either accidentally during debug or while testing a faulty DUT.
When a failure occurs, production output can be adversely impacted, and getting a test system quickly back up and running becomes the main priority of the operations team. Costly and time-consuming diagnosis and repair cycles cannot be tolerated.
Fortunately, some methods can be implemented that can shave weeks off typical turn-around times, and even predict failures in advance to allow for better maintenance planning. This video will teach you how to optimize your test system's productivity while minimizing costly downtime.
When architecting an automated test system that includes Microwave instrumentation, whether for military, aerospace, automotive or semiconductor applications, it is often advantageous to design in a signal routing or switching system. This video will explain how switching subsystems can bring great benefit to an automated test strategy, reducing overall cost and increasing the throughput of test. Switching signals at microwave frequencies offers some unique challenges that must considered to ensure reliable and repeatable test results.
Electronic control units (ECUs) are used in a wide range of electronic products. During their development, they are typically exercised by a test system which simulates the real-world environment in which the ECU will operate – this is known as Hardware-in-the-Loop HIL simulation. An ECU usually relies on information from many connected sensors to determine how it should function. These sensors are often working in hostile environments, such as a car engine bay, and failures often occur due to corrosion, aging, damage or even faulty installation. Safety-critical controllers usually go through a certification process where a series of common real-life faults, such as short and open circuits, are introduced by the HIL simulation system and the ECU response is checked to see that it operates in a safe and predictable manner. Automated Fault Insertion solutions allow these verification tests to be run in a controlled and repeatable way. In this video, we will highlight the types of faults that can be injected and look at some of the COTS hardware available.
This video discusses upgrading an automatic electronic functional test process from legacy Automatic Test Equipment (ATE) to the latest industry-standard platform. VXI was one of the first successes in modular test platforms and has served industries such as Aerospace and Defense for over 30 years. However, many test and measurement companies are now no longer supporting the standard. While the wide availability of PXI switching modules makes the choice of migrating VXI switching hardware relatively easy, there are also potential issues to consider which we discuss in the video along with the advantages of making a move from VXI to PXI.
Crosspoint matrix switches are one of the most flexible switching choices you can select for your next functional test system—essentially, a crosspoint matrix switch can connect virtually any test resource to virtually any test point on the DUT (Device Under Test). But like any selection you can make, there can be pros and cons in utilizing a crosspoint matrix: a test engineer needs to carefully weigh the specifications of the DUT to be tested in order to make the right switching choice for the test application being considered.
In this short video, we will explain how a matrix works, different ways to configure them, what questions to ask concerning the application and more. We will also compare building a large matrix with multiple switch matrices versus selecting a totally integrated switch matrix.
Learn about our PXI & PCI Programmable Resistor modules for Sensor Simulation. These modules can be used in many applications to simulate, for instance, resistive sensors such as those used for temperature, strain, light, force and level measurement. The resistors enable you to build cost reductions into your test system design without having to physically simulate the environment of the sensor.
Advantages of these Programmable Resistors include:
- They replace the need for real sensors
- No need to physically simulate sensors environment
- Allow you to reuse between test applications and give you accuracy, speed, and repeatability.
An additional advantage - the physical complexity of the test set-up can be simplified because you are potentially reducing the amount of cabling and discrete components required and the simulation is confined to test rack space.

As electrical/automation and control systems components become more compact and complex the internal enclosure heat loads are increasing. PLC’s, starters and drives are some of the major generators of heat in an enclosure. There are many challenges in the way we choose to keep the enclosures cool. ACT has developed a series of heat exchangers and air conditioners that are environmentally sealed to cool and protect the internal cabinet components from water, airborne chemical, and particulate contaminants.
Watch now for an in-depth discussion on sealed enclosure cooling technology options. We will discuss both above and below ambient cooling technologies, how they are selected and how they are installed. We will conduct live demonstrations of each ACT sealed enclosure cooling family so you can compare sizes and options. We will encourage questions and discussion as if you were with us, in person, at a trade show!
Heat pipes have been used for spacecraft thermal control for decades; however, the technology is continuously evolving. Heat Pipes are often selected due to their combination of thermal performance, low mass, and high reliability. This webinar will explore several variants including ammonia Constant Conductance Heat Pipes (CCHPs), Variable Conductance Heat Pipes (VCHPs), Loop Heat Pipes (LHPs) and Space Copper-Water Heat Pipes (SCWHPs). Each technology option provides a unique benefit for the spacecraft architecture.
This webinar will dive into details to help aerospace engineers select and apply the appropriate technology- exploring considerations such as including heat flux, transport distances, geometry and mass. Our subject experts will also be available after the webinar for specific questions on your application.
