Power Measurement for Laboratory and Semiconductor Production Processes

Bird’s laboratory grade RF products range from the 4020 series RF power sensors capable of 3% accuracy to the advanced 4027 series RF power sensors capable of 1% accuracy. These precision sensors have also been combined into turnkey calibration carts that integrate all the components required to measure, display and dissipate power from RF delivery systems. Even more sophisticated systems, the VIP and BDS have been developed to not only measure voltage and current but also the phase relationships between them to enable a higher degree of insight into modern, complex semiconductor processes.

Off Air Testing Products

Understanding the challenges of the electromagnetic spectrum is paramount for engineers that are charged with the design, characterisation and validation of modern RF systems such as communications systems and radar systems.

With Bird’s line of RF signal record and playback systems, engineers can record or playback seconds, minutes or even days of RF data without any gaps in the recording. This data can then be offloaded and processed through several different third-party vector signal analysis software packages to help engineers get to the answers they are looking for.
