Description

Model: ELE-AUX

The Advanced Microwave Measurement System can optionally include the Auxiliary Controller (ELE-AUX) to provide extended capability for more complex systems. Besides the multi-frequency, multi-port acquisition capability of the legacy system, the ELE-AUX adds multi-beam control and triggering to the real-time data acquisition process. The beam steering interface includes two ports that can be connected to the user’s equipment to signal a change in beam state. This enables multi-beam measurements to be made on-the-fly in the same way that basic multi-frequency, multi-port measurements can be made.

The ELE-AUX also provides more control over the acquisition process, allowing the sequence of measurement conditions to be optimized for the fastest acquisition process. The order in which beams, channels, and frequencies are switched can be configured so that slower switching devices are changed less often. This effectively optimizes acquisition speed for the types of devices used in a given test.
