SMD test solution and automatic fixture removal software plug-in facilitate characterization of RF devices and discrete components with metrological accuracy.

May be used in combination or individually. SMT test solution uses vector network analyzer, fixtures, software, and tools for manual, nondestructive characterization of 0402 components. Allows for measurement of SMD components over a frequency range from 100kHz to 20GHz. Uses serial and shunt fixtures with known topology to make metrologically accurate measurements for discreet resistors, capacitors, or inductors under real-life installation conditions. No soldering is required for testing. Is available to use with CMT 2-port 20GHz Cobalt network analyzers. VNA is not included. Automatic fixture removal VNA software plug-in enables measurement of range of components through methods tailored to specific fixture properties. Moves calibration plane toward hard-to-access DUTs and guides de-embedding process using time-gating, filtering, or bisect methods. Is compatible with CMT Cobalt series VNAs and Compact series two-port, two-path VNAs.
