Load Pull Measurements
Since 1988, Focus Microwave Group has been a key supplier of advanced Load Pull and Noise Tuner Systems. Copper Mountain Technologies instruments work with the company’s load pull systems. An impedance tuner is an apparatus, which generates a controllable reflection factor (Impedance) over a certain frequency range. Focus uses two basic technologies:
a) For frequencies from 100MHz to 110GHz (and above) we use the slide screw technique (models Multi Harmonic MPT, wideband (fundamental) CCMT), in which a reflective probe (slug) is inserted into the slot of a low loss slotted transmission line (slabline or waveguide).
b) For frequencies from below 10MHz to 170MHz we use a lumped element technology (models LFT), whereby variable capacitors are connected with optimized lengths of coaxial cable.
