Automated Measurement and Evaluation of 6-bit Amplitude and Phase Control Modules

Richard Cavanagh

Vector modulators can be used in the design of phased array antennas and in feedforward linearization systems. This paper presents the automated testing of an S and C band 12-bit vector modulator, which uses a 6-bit phase shifter and 6-bit attenuator to vary signal phase and amplitude. A Python program was written to automate the testing of all 4096 possible states, to better understand the potential performance of the vector modulator. The combined performance is presented and is examined outside the respective frequency ranges of each device. This paper outlines the technical challenges faced in performing and processing the measurements and highlights the advantages of an automated test setup.
