WHERE IDEAS COME TO LIFE...

At Focus we always start with a new Idea and end up with a final Product. We have been manufacturing Load Pull and Noise Measurement Systems since 1989. Our systems are based on proprietary designs of Computer Controlled Microwave Tuners CCMT . We have installed more than 1000 Measurement Systems (including more than 2700 tuners) and trained customer personnel worldwide. As a customer once put it: "You guys can do everything! "

Focus was, in 1987, the first among the automatic tuner manufacturers to use exclusively IBM-PC controlled instrumentation, and C/C++ programming language. Since then Focus has pioneered:
