Reduce Risk for RF and Microwave Semiconductor Component and Module Test

Passive and active electronically scanned arrays (ESAs) play a critical role in harnessing and defending the electromagnetic spectrum in modern radar and SATCOM applications. Mission success revolves around the characterization and production test of the RF and microwave semiconductor components within these systems. Technological innovations in this area are creating significant design and test challenges, including:

 

  • More efficient high-power RF devices based on modern GaN process technologies

  • Increasingly complex RF components and modules with progressively wider bandwidths

  • Multichannel RF front ends to handle frequency agile and multiband applications

  • More RF channel and high-speed digital I/O integration
  • Software defined digital processing capabilities to meet multifunction application needs
