Test and measurement instrumentation has traditionally been one of the largest investments for companies producing RF products, and for good reason. The capability to test many devices quickly can greatly reduce overall production cost and time to market. However, developing a fast, efficient test setup needn’t require prohibitive expense. Mini-Circuits’ has innovated a line of products for these functions that are smaller, faster, easier to control, and much more affordable than other options typically available in the industry. Our benchtop test and measurement modules offer the ease of control via USB or Ethernet and include programmable attenuators, power sensors, frequency counters, switch modules, signal generators and control products. Depending on the application, these units may be used as standalone solutions or easily integrated as building blocks to build scalable testing platforms customized to each user’s individual needs.
This product guide gives you an overview of Mini-Circuits’ standard portfolio of benchtop test products. We hope this information gives you some ideas about how we can help you reduce cost and improve efficiency in your test lab.
As consumer demand for higher data capacity continues to intensify, network operators deploying optical and hybrid-fiber-cable (HFC) infrastructure continue to push the limits of their equipment under the DOCSIS® 3.1 standard. Mini-Circuits is deeply committed to supporting equipment manufacturers in the CATV/broadband market as the standards and technology continue to evolve. Many of our components have been designed in to DOCSIS 3.1 applications from head-end infrastructure to customer-premises equipment, and we’ve gained extensive experience working with customers at the engineering level to achieve design success. In the process, we’ve expanded our portfolio of off-the-shelf parts with a wide variety of new models developed especially to support the evolving needs of the broadband market.
Our CATV/Broadband 2018 product guide provides information on a wide range of components from passive devices including transformers, couplers, and splitter/combiners to active elements including amplifiers, equalizers and more – all designed and carefully specified to meet DOCSIS 3.1 standards. We hope this material gives you a convenient reference to make an informed decision as you evaluate parts for your design!
Rapid growth in the number and variety of wireless applications and connected devices in the market has driven the need for more innovative, and highly customized test solutions.
