This paper reports the mechanical and electrical tests performed for the prototyping of the ITER high-frequency magnetic sensor and the analysis of the measurement performance of this diagnostic. The current design for the sensor is not suitable for manufacturing for ITER due to the high likelihood of breakages of the un-guided tungsten wire during the winding. A number of alternative designs and manufacturing processes have been investigated, with the Low Temperature Co-fired Ceramic technology giving the best results. The measurement performance of the baseline system design for the high-frequency magnetic diagnostic cannot meet the intended ITER requirements due to its intrinsic spatial periodicities
