Product Description

Prepared by Dong (Hudson) An, Mixed-Signal Collaboratory Engineer, CMC Microsystems.

 

This user guide introduces the Very High Frequency AC (VHFAC) instrument in the FLEX tester. The VHFAC instrument is used to source and capture AC signals at a frequency up to 160 MHz. There are two source channels and two captures channel on VHFAC, each of which can operate in either a single-ended mode or differential mode. The resolution of VHFAC is 12 bits.


An example test program is developed to illustrate the steps to program the VHFAC instrument. It is done by verifying the cut-off frequency of a 1st-order RC low-pass filter (LPF). A sine wave is sent into the device under test (DUT), and the output waveform is captured and analysed to observe the behavior of the LPF.
