Aeroflex to Debut PXI RF Test Platform, Radar Maintenance Solution

Aeroflex will launch two important new products at European Microwave Week 2007 in October, a new PXI test platform that operates up to 6GHz and an internal pulse modulation option for its 6800 Series for radar maintenance.

Modular RF test platform for wireless applications up to 6GHz
The scaleable platform has the flexibility to easily perform at any stage of wireless development from research to manufacturing and can integrate seamlessly into any wireless market including cellular, wireless data, RFIC test and military/aerospace.

The configurable RF measurement system encompasses three new powerful additions to the PXI 3000 Series hardware modules; PXI Studio software with new measurement plug-ins; and a new PXI instrument chassis to tie it all together.

Internal pulse modulation capabilities for Aeroflex 6800 Series microwave sources and scalar analyzers
With the addition of internal pulse modulation, Aeroflex’s 6800 Series microwave sources and scalar analyzers now offer enhanced radar maintenance capabilities in a completely self-contained, single-box solution. The internal pulse modulation option is available in two frequency ranges, 50MHz to 18GHz for typical radar test and 50MHz to 40GHz for specialty applications.
