Title: Roos Instruments Ships 40 GHz and 77 GHz ATE for HVM


Roos Instruments Ships 40 GHz and 77 GHz ATE for HVM

Roos Instruments, Inc. of Santa Clara, CA, is now shipping the world's first 77 GHz integrated high speed ATE solution in the form of two mm-wave Tester Instrument Modules (TIMs) for both its Cassini Test platform and its RI7100C Test platform. The solution extends the general purpose coverage of either test platform to 40 GHz and provides banded source and vector measurements up to 110 GHz.

Mark Roos, CEO, stated, "While there has been some interest in past years in frequencies above 20 GHz, the recent advances in process technology combined with the imminent high volume applications in automotive radar and multimedia communications have accelerated the need for a HVM test solution. RI's expertise in this area combined with its configurable HVM platforms enable us to offer a truly production ready solution."

The RI8563A 20-40 GHz Module is a single slot TIM that extends general tester coverage from 20 GHz to 40 GHz. Each TIM provides a source/receive port plus a receive only port. Source power up to +5 dBm with 30 dB of dynamic range is standard. Measurement capability includes up to 90 dB of dynamic range. A single Cassini or RI7100C platform supports multiple 40 GHz TIMs to extend the number of available ports. Primary applications at this time are for short range automotive radar used for steering assistance and back-up obstacle detection.

The RI8564A 77 GHz Module is a single slot TIM that extends the coverage of the RI8563A to 75-78 GHz, focused primarily on automotive collision avoidance radar. Similar TIMs are available over bands ranging from 50 GHz to 110 GHz. This family of TIMs will provide low cost, high speed production test for applications such as 1 GB/s PANs, Wireless TV/Camcorder connections, embedded automotive monitoring, Wireless LCD monitors and many other point to point communications applications. The RI8564A is a single port TIM that can source or measure up to +10 dBm. In receive mode, there is over 90 dB of dynamic measurement range available.

RI is currently accepting orders for either platform including both modules which are priced competitively with benchtop instrumentation. Fixture solutions are available for probe and final test. Please visit us at the International Test Conference, Exhibit 103 in Santa Clara, Oct. 28 - Oct. 30, 2008. RI and Cascade Micro will be jointly hosting a seminar showing a turnkey production test solution during Semicon Japan. For more information, contact sales@roos.com.
