The Batwing enables test engineers to easily connect network analyzer ports to chipsets with closely spaced (0.141 inches) end-launch connectors through 65 GHz. The Batwing test adapters are phase/delay matched and fixed electrical data can be easily added to software error correction models. Each Batwing adapter has eight ports and a length up to 4.5 inches. A custom spacing block is used to maintain consistent distance between connectors for multiple connect/disconnect cycles. This block can also be configured with mounting holes for permanent test fixtures. Phase/delay matched cables are fixed within lightweight mounting blocks and are typically configured with VP, SSMP, or SMP connectors on the DUT end, and 1.85 mm, 2.4 mm, 2.92 mm, or SMA connectors on the VNA end. VSWR is 1.5:1 maximum through 65 GHz with an operating temperature range of 30 to +125°C.
