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 World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

Passive Intermodulation (PIM) Testing Services - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

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.

Thanks.

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.
