Anritsu introduces tester for mm-wave passive components

0

An E-band option is now available for Anritsu’s ShockLine MS46500B series of two- and four-port performance vector network analyzers (VNAs), addressing the market need to lower cost of testing for E-band components.

With the option installed, the MS46500B series can reduce production costs and more efficiently verify the performance of high-frequency mm-wave passive components used in RF connectors and driver assistance/collision avoidance radar.

The two-port MS46522B and four-port MS46524B VNAs use the same software, command syntax, drivers and programming environments as the other ShockLine instruments. This powerful feature enables reuse of program code written for ShockLine family VNAs on the E-band and microwave instruments with little or no alteration.

ShockLine software also provides a powerful graphical user interface (GUI) for manual test environments. When attached to a user-supplied touchscreen monitor, the full-featured GUI provides comprehensive capabilities, including network extraction, embedding/de-embedding networks, and time domain with gating. Developing and troubleshooting test programs is made easier with advanced marker functionality, limit lines, and other features of the software.
