Anritsu has introduced the VectorStar™ ME7838AX/EX series, the first vector network analyzer (VNA) broadband systems to offer single-sweep coverage up to 125-GHz/110-GHz with guaranteed and typical specifications. The unique capabilities of the VectorStar ME7838AX/EX systems to sweep and provide characterized data through 125 GHz provide design engineers with the ability to significantly and confidently improve their device models for dramatic improvements in first time yields and performance.
Four broadband VectorStar-based VNA models from 10 MHz (optional 70 kHz) to 125 GHz with guaranteed specifications are available. With the additional 5 GHz guaranteed frequency sweep compared to previous VectorStar systems, the ME7838AX, ME7838A4X, ME7838EX and ME7838E4X meet the market need for accurate verification of components and broadband applications operating at 122 GHz.
To support measurements to 125 GHz, Anritsu also introduces the 3656C Series calibration and verification kits that are characterized to 125 GHz. Four versions are available to meet customer requirements and needs.
Calibration kits are available with cal. coefficients (.ccf) only and with or without a verification kit. Anritsu also offers .s1p database definitions (and .ccf) calibration kits with or without verification kits.
