The 34A is a coupler from Boonton. An electronic test equipment coupler is useful for reflectometer applications, attenuation measurements, power measurements, microwave measurements, network analysis, and source leveling, to name a few.
- Coaxial Resonant Line
- For testing ESR & Q from 130 MHz to 2 GHz
- Includes RF probe for connecting to a network analyzer (No RF millivoltmeter probe necessary.)
The most accurate method of determining Q and ESR at elevated frequencies (~100MHz to ~1.2GHz), is to use a resonant line coaxial jig. The industry standard tube for doing this was laid down many years ago as the Boonton model 34A, manufactured by the Boonton Electronics Corporation. Designed to be used along with a RF voltmeter and an RF signal generator.
