ShockLine™ Compact USB Vector Network Analyzer: MS46122B
Source: Anritsu Company
The MS46122B is a series of three PC-controlled Compact ShockLine Vector Network Analyzers with a frequency range from 1 MHz to 8/20/43.5 GHz. The series benefits from patented ShockLine VNA-on-chip technology, which simplifies the internal VNA architecture at high frequencies, reduces instrument cost, and enhances accuracy and measurement repeatability.
All the members of the MS46122B series are low cost full-reversing 2-port VNAs aimed at RF and microwave applications in manufacturing, engineering and education. All three MS46122B VNAs have 220 microseconds per point sweep speed and better than 100 dB dynamic range making them suitable for a variety of device test applications.
These new VNAs are in packaged in a very compact 1U chassis and are externally controlled via USB from a user supplied PC running the same Graphical User Interface (GUI) software as the rest of the ShockLine family of VNAs. The series does not have any on board memory which simplifies its use in secure applications. The combination of lower cost, small size and good performance make the MS46122B series VNAs ideal for passive device test applications where performance and small form factor are desired.
