SMD Test Solution
SMD Test Solution is a comprehensive product utilizing a vector network analyzer (sold separately), fixtures, software, and manual, non-destructive characterization of 0402 RLC components. It allows for measurement of SMD components over a wide frequency range from 100 kHz to 20 GHz – an industry first. SMD Test Solution 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, reducing the time and cost of component testing. It is available to use with CMT 2-port 20 GHz Cobalt network analyzers. The VNA is not included in this solution and must be purchased separately.
SMD Test Solution is a full hardware and software solution for manual, non-destructive characterization of 0402 components. SMD Test uses fixtures with established topology to measure discreet resistors, capacitors, or inductors under real life installation conditions. With SMD Test you can make metrologically accurate measurements up to 20 GHz. This non-destructive method reduces test time and total cost of discreet component measurement.
