Abstract: 

An automatic, electromechanical microwave tuner, used for load pull transistor testing, employs three horizontally and vertically adjustable RF probes; the tuner creates very low mechanical vibrations, because it is capable of generating all microwave reflection factors required for complete load pull and noise measurement operations, using only vertical probe movement; it also provides high tuning dynamic range, large frequency bandwidth and continuous choice of tuning target areas.
