Vector Network Analyzer: VectorStar™ ME7838ESource: Anritsu Company
This VNA provides single sweep coverage in the 70 kHz to 110 GHz frequency range. Two configurations are available: The broadband vector network analyzer includes the VNA, broadband mm-wave test set and interface cables, and two mm-wave modules. The other option is an mm-wave waveguide VNA system. It’s largely the same set up, but comes with two banded millimeter-wave modules.
The ME7838E is an improvement over traditional broadband systems because its unique architecture eliminates the need for MUX combiners. It also reduces thermal variations. This makes it ideal for high-speed on-wafer applications and improves the measurement stability of 0.1 dB over 24 hours. Non-linear transmission line (NLTL) harmonic samplers provide a 109 dB to 110 GHz dynamic range and offers a higher comb frequency with less drop-off at higher frequencies.
