Sidecar mmWave Module
The Sidecar mmWave Module attaches directly to the Characterization Platform and provides frequency up-conversion, amplification, and gain control. Frequency bands are targeted for testing Ka-band devices at frequencies between 26 – 40GHz.
Combining with the RF SMART or Quantum SMART fixture creates a single channel ovenized RF test chamber. This standalone integral software and hardware platform is capable of functioning as an independent single-channel or virtual multi-channel characterization test subsystem. The platform is USB controlled to provide temperature, RF-signal, and bias-control to a device under test (DUT) for semiconductor performance measurement.
Compact footprint is ideal for benchtop setups, such as RF measurement and thermal characterization (e.g. IR or Thermoreflectance)
