The R&S® ZN-Z84 is a 48-port solution designed to complement the R&S ZNB network analyzer. It’s used to test multiport components for the wireless communications market in R&D and production phases. The matrix covers the 10 MHz to 8.5 GHz frequency range and can be controlled and operated directly from the ZNB network analyzer.
The ZN-Z84 switch matrix allows its users to measure the S-parameters of antenna I/O modules, multiband filters, and splitters, and its up to 48 port configuration makes it ideal for the full characterization of frontend modules supporting smartphones or tablets that operate on different frequency bands.
In addition to S-parameter measurements, this switch matrix can be used for phase measurements on multi-antenna arrays, and also to characterize common multiport DUTs.
