OML Introduces an Electronic Attenutation Source Module

OML Expands Source Module to Include Option for Electronic Attenuation

November 21, 2014. OML introduces a new option for its signal generator frequency extension module, SxxMS. Already available with options for manual adjustable attenuation and DC power connection to Keysight's PSG; the source module now includes an option for electronic attenutation. The SxxMS Series will expand your existing microwave Signal Generator capabilites to conduct measurements from 50 to 500 GHz. Easily connected to the output of a signal generator this module enables high performance for your DUT. Characterize the DUT with the confidence that it will produce accurate results with superior performance of output power, spurious and harmonics.

Now with the option of electronic attenuation you can master your power with this module by controlling the attenuation through a DC voltage or through Keysight's PSG with option UNT.  Power leveling and power flatness can now be achieved through simple computer control.  This option comes in various attenutation values which are: option -EA1 that adds 0 to 20 dB typical adjustable attenuator to the RF path, -EA2 that adds 0 to 40 dB typical and -EA3 that adds 0 to 60 dB typical.

This option is currently available in waveguide bands from 50 GHz to 110 GHz; above 110 GHz contact factor; model number SxxMS-EA. Videos are available detailing the installation and operation procedure for the electronic source module.

OML Introduces a Low Power VNA Frequency Extension Module

OML Introduces a Low Power Series for VNA Frequency Extension Modules

November 21, 2014. OML introduces a Low Power Series for its VNA frequency extension modules. Providing a low power solution; with a max output of 0 dBm; which expands your existing Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) capabilities so you can conduct millimeter wave S-parameter measurements. Connect to your existing network analyzer to display two port S-parameters: S11, S21, S12, S22. Four architectures are available: 1-port, scalar, 2-port, 1-path/2-port and fully reversing 2-port.

The Low Power VNA Series offers you everything our original VNA series offers including the option -A, -RLA, -LOA and now -IMD. Option A adds manual adjustable attenuator (0 to 25 dB) to the RF path, option RLA adds an amplifier (15 dB gain) in RF & LO path for drive input of -5 dBm and option LOA adds an amplifier (15 dB gain) in LO path for drive input of -5 dBm. The IMD, intermodulation distortion measurement, is an industry standard revealing the linearity of an amplifier using a two tone measurement.

This Low Power Series is currently available in waveguide bands from 50 GHz to 110 GHz; VxxVNA2-LP. For more information on the Low Power VNA Series as well as all the options offered for this module please contact OML.
