mmW-Studio

Power control and measurement at millimeter wave, is it possible?

When measuring S-parameters at millimeter wave using extenders, controlling the power is not possible, unless you use very expensive test-sets.

Vertigo Technologies has the cost effective solution that will help you get the best from your millimeter wave measurements: MMW-STUDIO

Power available at the output of a commercially available millimeter wave extender in the WR-03 waveguide bandwidth

MMW-STUDIO. Power control with the ease of a ‘click’

MMW-STUDIO allows controlling the measurement power at the DUT test ports during millimeter wave measurements.

All you need is the equipment you already have*, a computer and our software, and you will be able to control the power delivered to your DUT, and constantly measure it without any time overload.

*MMW-STUDIO supports all available extenders. Contact us to know if your VNA and power meter are supported

Fast and easy

MMW-STUDIO guides you through a special calibration procedure, with an user friendly interface. Once your system is calibrated you will be able to always control the measurement power, and measure it at the same speed of your conventional VNA measurements.

More than only

S-parameter

The unique characteristics of our calibration procedure allow the user to get more than just power-controlled S-parameters. Once the power can be measured, possibilities are countless: large signal characterization, measurement spectral analysis, mixed frequency analysis (for harmonics) and more…

Active load-pull with MMW-STUDIO

Thought active load-pull at mm-wave was impossible?

MMW-STUDIO load-pull is the first active load-pull setup working at frequencies from 50 GHz to 1.1 THz*. Our solution consists in a software module, including all the features of MMW-STUDIO with the addition of the load-pull software, and a hardware module (the Vector Modulation Unit or VMU) which, in combination with your extenders, enables load-pull capabilities

*The frequency range depends on the availability of millimeter wave extenders
