Anritsu has expanded its RF/Microwave W1 (1.0 mm) component line with the introduction of bias tees, DC blocks, and semi-rigid cables that operate up to 110 GHz and provide broadband frequency scalability in high-frequency device characterization and optical networking applications. The addition of the new W1 components provides Anritsu with one of the broadest millimeter wave (mmWave) coaxial component portfolios in the market, that can be integrated into test systems so engineers have greater confidence in their emerging high-speed designs.
With an operable frequency from DC to 110 GHz, the new W1 components generate metrology-grade quality results with high repeatability. Further ensuring flexibility for customer testing, these new components provide a component solution where conventional devices, including waveguides, do not exist. The W1 coaxial interface allows for a direct connection to the instrument test port, which saves time and simplifies system setup.
The new components can be used as part of a test system consisting of 110 GHz vector network analyzers (VNAs), oscilloscopes, and Bit Error Rate Testers (BERTs), as well as for optical transceivers, laser diodes, photodiodes, and optical modulators. The development of switches and routers using NRZ and PAM4 modulation schemes with 56 Gbps and 112 Gbps data rates, and 800G technology are applications, as well.
