Features

The experiments are performed using the Data Acquisition and Management for Microwave Systems software (LVDAM-MW®). This modern software is built around a Data Acquisition Interface (DAI) that performs 12-bit A/D acquisition on four channels. The software uses the acquired data received from the interface to calculate and display the values of power and SWR measurements on a computer screen. This approach eliminates the need for a separate power meter and standing-wave ratio (SWR) meter, thereby providing high flexibility at a reduced cost.

Key Features

  • Provides hands-on, system-level training in microwave technologies in the classroom
  • Uses rugged, high-quality components designed for educational purposes
  • Each component is identified with standard micro-wave symbol
  • Microwave devices and components fabricated from electroless-plated brass to standard X-band waveguide dimensions
  • Waveguide flanges joined by patented, precision quick fasteners, allowing rapid assembly and disassembly of system configurations
  • USB Data Acquisition Interface (DAI) providing the following virtual instrumentation for the LVDAM®-MW software: Power Meter, SWR Meter, Oscilloscope, Ammeter, and Voltmeter
  • The DAI is “stackable” and powered by the Gunn Oscillator Power Supply, Model 9501
  • Comprehensive manuals with theory, step-by-step laboratory exercises, and review questions
  • Meets a variety of needs and budgets because of subsystems and options
  • Highly safe: low-power operation levels
  • Estimated Program Duration: 55 hours
