Test and Measurement
Through our partners at the University of Virginia, we provide on-wafer measurement capabilities from DC to 1THz, and waveguide coverage from 100GHz to 1THz. Equipment includes a number of vector network analyzers (up to 50GHz), a variety of millimeter-wave synthesizers (up to 50GHz), VNA extenders up to 1.1THz, power meters, and waveguide and coaxial components.
To aid in services we have created and continually maintain scikit-rf (www.scikit-rf.org), the the most popular python package for RF/Microwave engineering. Scikit-rf provides a modern object-oriented network analysis library with support for a wide range of calibration routines, instrument automation, and post processing features.

Our team has extensive mmw and THz microwave circuit design experience. We employ a combination of finite element analysis and custom python-based infrastructure to achieve accurate designs efficiently. For computation and modeling, our partners at UVa have a number of high-performance computers and software packages including Ansoft’s High Frequency Structure Simulator, Agilent’s Advanced Design System, and Agilent’s Momentum.

Alex Arsenovic received a B.S and Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from the University of Virginia in 2007 and 2012, respectively. Alex has worked as an independent consultant in Central Virginia for the past 5 years, with clients such as Virginia Diodes Inc, Nuvotronics, and Plotly. He continues to work closely with the University of Virginia, and has authored and co-authored over 15 technical papers in the field of microwave metrology and geometric algebra. In 2016, he created Eight Ten Labs LLC to continue providing the services for microwave metrology, software development, and applied mathematics. His chief interest is in modernizing the theoretical and computation tools used by electrical engineers and scientists.
