The new CT100 and CT100HF are the industry's highest-resolution portable metallic TDRs, designed for testing all coaxial and twisted-pair cables and interconnects used in modern microwave/RF and digital systems. These are the only portable instruments that exceed all TDR specifications of the Tektronix® 1502C Metallic TDR Cable Tester, while providing next-generation improvements in TDR analysis, data storage, connectivity, and ergonomics.
CT100 Series TDRs feature 8-10x sharper spatial resolution and 100-1000x better Distance-to-Fault (DTF) resolution than competing TDR instruments, and have multi-GHz bandwidth similar to competing FDR (Frequency-Domain Reflectometer) instruments with similar or better cable fault sensitivity and orders-of-magnitude better DTF precision.
These instruments' unique combination of fast system risetime, high-resolution timebase, and precision 16-bit impedance measurements allow you to identify and correct subtle changes in cable and connector performance before system failure. Some of the CT100 Series' innovative features are described below.
The 3920B is the newest radio test set introduced by Aeroflex. The 3920B features a new low phase noise RF signal generator in addition to the already advanced functionality available on the Aeroflex 3900 Series.
