OML introduces the industry’s first direct connect solution for mm-wave Intermodulation Distortion (IMD) measurements. Fitted to characterize mm-wave devices for S-parameters and gain compression; IMD is an industry standard technique revealing the linearity of an amplifier using a two-tone measurement. Compatible with modern network analyzers, OML offers mechanical compatibility with existing probe stations and flexibility to upgrade existing modules with IMD capabilities.
Intermodulation distortion is an outstanding measurement tool for characterizing the linearity of emerging devices. Unfortunately, the setup complexity involved in in the millimeter wave prevents engineers from using it.
