Does anyone know of a company that will measure passive intermodulation on filters for a fee? The test equipment is expensive and we only have a few filters to quality.

Greetings esoares:

I know from personal experience that, at least a few years ago, both Agilent in Loveland, CO, and Narda in Happauge, NY, had equipment to make PIM measurements.

Agilent used equipment designed and manufactured by Summitek in Colorado (http://www.summitekinstruments.com/).

Narda (http://www.nardamicrowave.com/east/) had a custom in-house setup.

I do not have names for contacting either company, but you could just try calling the main phone numbers and ask. You might also try contacting Summitek to see if they can either do the testing or recommend a test facility.

Kirt Blattenberger,

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
