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

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.
