Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Measurement

Passive intermodulation (PIM) is a form of intermodulation distortion that occurs in passive components such as antennas, cables, connectors, or duplexers with two or more high-power input signals. PIM in the transmission path degrades quality of the wireless communication system.

PIM is becoming a critical parameter recently due to installation of new technologies in wireless communication industries such as higher RF transmission power, multiband operation with a shared common antenna, or wider bandwidth signals with higher probability of PIM in the receiver band.

To help you achieve higher-performance and low-cost test solution, Keysight has the solution that combines PIM and S-parameter measurements of passive components by using the vector network analyzer (VNA).
