Verify the performance of passive components under peak power conditions

Power tolerance testing is used to verify the performance of components under peak power input signal. It is used to verify the maximum tolerance of a component to withstand heat without degradation and arcing. Power tolerance testing is essential to characterize fully passive components used in telecommunications. 

  • Can be used for frequency bands: DD800, CDMA800, EGSM900, DCS1800, PCS1900, WCDMA2100, LTE2600 etc.
  • Test port power detected through Keysight E4417A power meter
  • Average power: min +40dBm to max +60dBm (1000W)
  • Peak power: min +40dBm to max +70dBm (10000W)
  • Peak power tolerance testing through detection of VSWR deterioration
  • Uses Keysight N1912A power meter and E-series spectrum analyzer and signal source
