At Castle Microwave, we have a history of working with RF and Microwave technology. That’s why we’re proud to partner with Maury Microwave.
Maury Microwave's Capabilities
Maury Microwave is an industry leader in RF/Microwave test and measurement equipment to sub-THz with a range of parts from adapters to turn-key on-wafer load pull systems with innovative software tools to ensure measurement accuracy for any application. International partnerships ensure that Maury products can be used with well known test equipment manufacturers' VNAs in addition to offering measurement services for customers that prefer to out-source some activities.
Castle Microwave is able to assist with any aspect of Maury's product range, below are some of the main areas and more detail can be obtained from our experienced sales team or the Maury website (link opposite).
Precision Calibration Standards
Maury Microwave offers SOLT and TRL VNA calibration kits (cal. kits) for all Agilent, Rohde Schwarz and Anritsu VNAs, calibration standards, metrology, precision and instrument grade coaxial adapters, waveguide adapters, coaxial to waveguide adapters, connector gage kits, cable assemblies, and torque wrenches.
To ensure accuracy in measurement systems, Maury offers calibration-grade metrology, precision and lab interconnect solutions including cable assemblies and adapters in a wide range of styles across standard interface types both in-series and mixed configurations up to 67 GHz.
StabilityVNA™, Stability Plus™ and Stability Bench™ cable assemblies offer proven industry leading phase stability performance, designed to ensure reliability and repeatability with superior flexibility and anti-skid band to ensure the cables can be arbitrarily positioned with no spring-back or stress on DUT. Colour coded connectors assist in preventing incorrect mating, and offer clear indications of compatibility and intermateability. Custom configurations are available with standard lengths/connector options on short lead time from factory stock.
ColorConnect™ Precision Adapters have been designed for lab and field use where quality, performance, ease-of-identification and ease-of-use are critical. New manufacturing techniques have given ColorConnect™ Precision Adapters improved VSWR specifications bridging the gap between calibration-grade metrology adapters and daily-use lab adapters.
Maury provides a comprehensive range of products and capability for device characterization including both hardware and software simulation tools, in addition to providing measurement services with expert industry partners.
Tools are available for noise figure measurements, linear/non-linear modelling, active and hybrid-active load-pull, large signal analysis, nonlinear VNA measurements, behavioural model extraction, linear and nonlinear compact modelling, and on wafer measurements up to 110GHz to name a few of capabilities we offer. Maury can provide solutions from a tuner to a complete turn-key system including probe station for wafer applications and our measurement experts can review your requirements to ensure we deliver the most cost effective and accurate measurement solution.
Test & Measurement Instrumentation Amplifiers
Not all amplifiers are created equal, so how can you be certain that an amplifier will work for your needs? You deserve to be confident that the amplifiers used with your test-and measurement lab benches will meet the requirements of your specific applications, are reliable, and are equally well-supported pre-and post-sale.
With more than 60 years of experience, Maury are the application experts, having designed, manufactured, trained and supported turnkey measurement and modelling device characterization solutions. Their expertise includes specialization in 4G and 5G base station and handset transistor model extraction and validation, RADAR transistor model extraction and validation, 4G, 5G, Wi-Fi and WLAN PA and FEM design and design validation test (DVT), as well as general 50Ω and non-50Ω characterization. Maury are uniquely positioned to combine measurement and load pull expertise with modern solid-state power amplifier design practices to deliver best-in-class instrument amplifiers that can satisfy a wide range of application-specific requirements including simultaneous high-power, wide bandwidth, low harmonic power and high linearity.
Maury makes use of extensive in-house test facilities to ensure their amplifiers meet your reliability expectations, testing each shipped unit according to house defined high standards. Burn-in and ageing tests include prolonged storage under extreme temperature conditions, extended amplifier operation over the entire rated temperature range, and elongated usage at maximum power under CW and pulsed-CW conditions. After burn-in and ageing, each amplifier is tested for electrical performance and is shipped with a test report.
