12 GHz Measurement TIM

The RI8567B 12 GHz Measurement Test Instrument Module combines a dual port microwave test set, and a complex receiver in a single TIM. An additional Auxiliary port is provided for extended low frequency (down to 100 kHz) measurement using the same complex receiver.


An onboard Local Oscillator eliminates the need for any external signal generators.
The built in two port test set provides connectivity to any Cassini based RF or microwave source (up to 12 GHz) via test head fixture interconnection.
The test set’s 100μS switching speed combined with the single channel coherent receiver architecture provides the ability to make high speed multiple port measurements using a single TIM. The dual port capability can be extended to multiple additional ports using an appropriate fixture based multiplexor allowing multiple high port count devices can be tested using a single RI8567B without considerable test time tradeoff. The RI8567B is available on all Roos Instrument Cassini Testers.
