Marvin Test Solutions Introduces Beamforming-5G Production Test Solution

November 7, 2019 Perry Cohen


Marvin Test Solutions, a provider of test solutions for military, aerospace, and manufacturing organizations, introduced the new TS-960e-5G production test system for mmWave devices used in 5G applications and networks. The system is fielded in a quad-site production configuration supporting test frequencies up to 50 GHz.

Based on the PXIe modular platform, the TS-960e-5G provides a compact, integrated test solution that can be configured with up to 24 independent VNA channels and up to 256 dynamic digital channels with per-channel parametric measurement units (PMUs). The TS-960e-5G offers users a compact test system that can support both functional and DC parametric test capabilities.  

It is available with 5G software tools and with a digital vector conversion utility that support ASCII, WGL, STIL, VCD, eVCD and ATP vector formats.

Designed for production test applications requiring integration with an automated handler, the TS-960e-5G is available with an inTEST manipulator which provides precise positioning of the test head and the flexibility to interface to automated probers and device handlers. The TS-960e-5G's device interface board (DIB) / receiver interface is designed to be compatible with any device handler.

The TS-960e-5G core system includes ATEasy, a suite of software tools that allows users to develop and maintain test applications. Digital and parametric testing, and SPI/I2C interface support to control and monitor the device under test are supported in the ATEasy Test Executive and Test Development Suite, as well as all instrument drivers, virtual instrument panels, system self-test, ICEasy which facilitates device test development and characterization.
