HUBER+SUHNER Unveils 90 GHz Multicoax Test Solution

HUBER+SUHNER has introduced a multicoax test solution for frequencies up to 90 GHz. The MXPM90 test solution has been developed for the automotive, semiconductor and mobile communication sectors that are increasingly using E-band spectrum. Created in response to the industry’s demands, this product will allow manufacturers to test their components with even greater accuracy.

As testing of PAM4/400G ethernet, 5G mobile communication systems and automotive radar sensors becomes more of a standard requirement, the technological demand for test solutions that are optimized for higher frequencies will also be required. The MXPM90 is the latest expansion to the already established MXPM70 multicoax product, offering an extended bandwidth from DC up to 90 GHz. This provides HUBER+SUHNER customers with a solution that allows for extremely accurate results through high speed digital, bench-top and system testing, as well as internal wiring in automated test systems.

The MXPM90 has a high-density pitch down to the board, measuring 2.54mm (0.1 inch) centre-to-centre, which positions the MXPM as close as possible to the chip to keep traces short, giving manufacturers greater efficiency during the test process.

Meanwhile, the plug and play functionality guarantees a trouble-free, user-friendly experience. Its magnetic mount connection facilitates a perfect transition between assembly and PCB socket. Additionally, the MXPM90 has automatic interface protection safeguarding every single channel from mechanical damage when disconnected.

Jürg Nussbaumer, Product Manager Radio Frequency PMD components at HUBER+SUHNER, said that this latest product offers best-in-class integrity for data analysis up to 112 Gbps/90GHz and beyond, making it a highly efficient solution for precise, repetitive measurements, with its tight phase matching of single assemblies and broadband return and insertion loss characteristics across the entire bandwidth. It demonstrates the ability of HUBER+SUHNER to rapidly innovate in line with changing expectations and needs, to provide their customers with high-quality components.
