zvaz100

Network analysis from 75 GHz to 110 GHz with maximum dynamic range (for ZVA24, ZVA40, ZVA50 and ZVT20, includes ZVA-K4)

Millimeter-wave measurements from 75 GHz to 110 GHz with the R&S®ZVA-Z110 converters WR10 The R&S ZVA-Z110 converters enable network analysis in the frequency range from 75 GHz to 110 GHz (W band) using an R&S ZVA24, R&S ZVA40, or R&S ZVT20 network analyzer. Featuring a dynamic range of typically >110 dB, the converters set new standards. Moreover, they are easy to install, offer high operating convenience and allow fast measurements. For a two-port measurement, you only need a four-port network analyzer and two converters, no external generator is required. When using a two-port network analyzer, you need an external generator to supply the LO signals.

Wide dynamic range of typ. >110 dB

With a dynamic range of >95 dB (typically >110 dB), the converters from Rohde & Schwarz expand the limits of technology by more than 15 dB. This feature is important particularly for highblocking filters, for example, but also speeds up measurements in general, as it enables the use of wider bandwidths while maintaining the same excellent performance.

Variable output power

The R&S ZVA-Z110 converters have an output power of 2 dBm. The power can be manually reduced by means of a control screw on the upper side of the converters. The output power can thus be continuously reduced by between 0 dB and 25 dB to measure low-noise amplifiers, which would be overloaded otherwise.

Easy to handle

The converters' waveguide connectors are arranged on a bar extending from the converter, which makes them very easy to handle. The screwed flange joints are easily accessible. This greatly facilitates calibration and connecting the DUT. The converters can be set up on four or three feet adjustable in height. Using three feet makes it significantly easier to align the test port flange. The converters contain no fans, which is of advantage especially in particle-sensitive environments. The converters come with two test port adapters. This allows the use of calibration kits from other manufacturers and effectively protects the converters‘ waveguide connectors against wear.

Automatic parameter setting

The R&S ZVA-Z110 is fully integrated in the R&S ZVA and R&S ZVT firmware by means of the R&S ZVA-K8 converter control option. Just select the converter type, and the network analyzer will automatically set the frequency limits to 75 GHz to 110 GHz and make all the required parameter settings. A special output power limiting function of the network analyzer prevents unduly high powers from being applied to the coaxial inputs of the converters.

All instrument settings are performed automatically, so that measurements can be started immediately. For calibration, the analyzer automatically offers the calibration kit appropriate for this frequency range, i.e. the R&S ZV-WR10.
