Description

The ShockLine™ MS46121B is a PC-controlled, 1-port USB vector network analyzer (VNA) with a frequency range of 150 kHz to 6 GHz. This series provides performance and accuracy in a low-cost, space-saving solution that is small enough to directly connect to your device under test (DUT). These solutions are ideal for RF and microwave applications within manufacturing, engineering, and education organizations. The two versions provide 120 microsecond per point sweep speeds and a scalar transmission measurement accuracy of +/- 1.0 dB (0 dB to -50 dB insertion loss levels, typical), making them ideal for your passive device test applications.

These very compact VNAs are externally controlled and powered via USB from a user-supplied PC. Up to 16 independent ShockLine MS46121B VNAs can be operated in parallel from the same computer running the ShockLine software. This allows true parallel multisite testing of 1-port devices, and improves throughput over a traditional single VNA and switch matrix test solution. Adding Option 21 Scalar Transmission enables scalar measurements (magnitude only) between multiple ShockLine MS46121B VNAs. This series does not have any on-board memory, which simplifies its use in secure applications. The combination of lower cost, small size, good performance, and parallel operation make the ShockLine MS46121B series VNAs ideal for passive 1-port device test applications where performance and multisite testing are desired.

Description

The VectorStar™ family is Anritsu's Premium VNA line, providing the highest overall performance on a modern platform. The MS4640B VectorStar VNA offers the broadest coverage in a single instrument, 70 kHz to 70 GHz. The additional two decades at the low end are even more impressive than the guaranteed 70 GHz coverage on the high end.

IMDView™ provides active menu sidebar with real time measurement display while modifying critical IMD parameters. The internal combiner option offers single connection testing of active devices for automatically switching between S parameter and IMD measurements without the need for reconnecting the DUT.

PulseView™, when combined with the innovative IF digitizing option, offers industry-leading 2.5 ns pulse resolution and 100 dB dynamic range with no compromises or trade-offs due to varying duty cycles. PulseView provides real time display of pulse measurements while dynamically modifying pulse parameters for immediate design validation.

DifferentialView™, when combined with the dual internal source option, offers real time display analysis of differential devices, drivers, and components while actively modifying phase and magnitude relationships of the internal dual sources.

The noise figure option is based on a cold source technique for improved noise figure measurement accuracy. VectorStar is the only VNA platform capable of measuring noise figure from 70 kHz to 125 GHz and available with an optimized noise receiver for measurements from 30 GHz to 125 GHz. Additionally, VectorStar is the only VNA that offers a Differential Noise Figure option for characterizing the noise figure of differential devices.

For broadband applications, the ME7838 Series offers superior performance and coverage spanning a range from 70 kHz to 110 GHz, 125 GHz and 145 GHz in a single coaxial test port. The Anritsu developed Non-linear Transmission Line mmWave module is compact while providing high performance up to 145 GHz.

The Anritsu MS4640B Vector Network Analyzer offers a new level of performance for device modeling engineers struggling to accurately and reliably characterize their devices, for R&D engineers pushing the last fraction of a dB out of their state-of-the-art designs, and for the manufacturing engineer trying to maximize throughput without sacrificing accuracy. Backed by a 3-year warranty and the most responsive sales support team, the MS4640B is the VNA of choice for the discerning engineer.

ME7848A


Anritsu ME7848A VectorStar Opto-Electronic Network Analyzers
Anritsu ME7848A VectorStar Opto-Electronic Network Analyzers

The VectorStar ME7848A opto-electronic network analyzer (ONA) provides a modular approach to optical measurements of O/E, E/O, and O/O devices operating at 850, 1310, and 1550 nm wavelengths. There are two configurations available: the VectorStar ME7848A-100 series includes the MN4765B O/E calibration module and the VectorStar ME7848A-200 series adds the MN4775A E/O converter.

The VectorStar ME7848A-200 series provides the ability to quickly switch between O/E, E/O, and O/O measurements with specified traceable measurements established by the MN4765B O/E calibration module.

The VectorStar ME7848A ONA can be easily modified to different wavelengths by adding the appropriate MN4775A E/O converter and MN4765B O/E calibration detector. The VectorStar ME7838A-100 series can be upgraded to a 200 series by including the appropriate MN4775A E/O converter.

Key Features

  • Fast and accurate opto-electronic measurements - The VectorStar ME7848A 200 series ONA enables error-corrected transfer function, group delay, and return loss measurements of E/O and O/E components and subsystems.
  • MN4765B O/E calibration module - The O/E calibration module is a thermally stabilized photodiode reference standard detector that can eliminate drift over temperature. Accurate bias voltage to the photodiode is maintained internally.
  • MN4775A E/O converter - The E/O converter includes a lithium niobate (LiNbO3) modulator stabilized by a fully automatic bias controller and a tunable or fixed wavelength laser source. Excellent converter stability ensures characteristics remain consistent during measurement of opto-electronic DUT detectors and receivers.
  • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) derived characterization - Magnitude and phase characterization of the O/E calibration module is obtained using a primary standard characterized by NIST and held in the Anritsu Calibration Lab.
  • Internal VNA de-embedding for simplified calibration - The built-in application menus provide instructions that guide the user through the set-up and calibrations required for making E/O, O/O, and O/E measurements.
  • Excellent stability and repeatability - Use of full 12-term calibration with de-embedding results in stable and repeatable measurements of opto-electronic devices using the VectorStar VNA.
  • Modularity and upgradeability - The VectorStar ME7848A ONA can be easily modified to a different wavelength by adding the appropriate MN4775A E/O converter and MN4765B O/E calibration detector. The VectorStar ME7838A 100 series can be upgraded to a 200 series by including the appropriate MN4775A E/O converter.

ME7868A


Anritsu ME7868A Distributed Modular 2-port Vector Network Analyzer
Anritsu ME7868A Distributed Modular 2-port Vector Network Analyzer

Description

The ShockLine™ ME7868A system is the first distributed, fully reversing 2-port VNA solution that provides guaranteed performance from 1 MHz to 43.5 GHz by utilizing Anritsu’s Extended-K™ components. Powered by the revolutionary PhaseLync™ technology, it enables engineers to synchronize two portable ShockLine MS46131A VNAs and connect them directly to a DUT to conduct vector transmission measurements over distances of 100 meters or more. Whether in a manufacturing, engineering, or education environment, this solution simplifies long-distance S-parameter measurements and VNA test system integration by removing the need to utilize conventional benchtop VNAs with long cable runs, which eliminates insertion loss, improves measurement stability, and lowers setup costs.

The ShockLine ME7868A offers a configurable VNA setup to maximize hardware utilization. Easily set VNA port count (single 1-port, dual 1-ports, or single 2-ports) from session-by-session to ensure maximum flexibility. With low-pass time domain with time gating option, users have access to a TDR-like display with more resolution than bandpass time domain for characterizing discontinuities. Because there is no onboard data storage, this eliminates the need to purge data for secure applications.

Key Features

  • 2-port VNA with frequency options from 1 MHz to 8 GHz / 20 GHz / 43.5 GHz
  • Extend remote ports 100+ meters apart with PhaseLync synchronization
  • Small and lightweight ports enable direct connection to DUT eliminating long cable runs
  • Guaranteed performance to 43.5 GHz with Extended-K™ ports
  • PC control takes advantage of external computer processing power and functionality
  • No on-board data storage makes use in secure applications more convenient
  • Common ShockLine control software delivers powerful debug and test capabilities

System Dynamic Range

System dynamic range for an ME7868A, consisting of two MS46131A VNAs with the PhaseLync option, is calculated as the difference between High source power and the noise floor (RMS) at the specified reference plane at 10 Hz IF Bandwidth with an isolation calibration. High isolation mode is used.

Frequency Range All Configurations (dB)
1 MHz to 5 GHz 97 (110 typical)
> 5 GHz to 8.5 GHz 97a,b (105 typical)
> 8.5 GHz to 20 GHz 98 (110 typical)
> 20 GHz to 40 GHz 102 (110 typical)
> 40 GHz to 43.5 GHz 99 (110 typical)

a. For the port that is not providing the master reference the SDR will degrade as follows: > 5 GHz to 7 GHz: 89 (105 typical)

b. Dynamic range maybe degraded in a narrow range near 8 GHz in -020 and -043 models due to receiver residuals.
