Mini-Circuits and Vayyar to Provide Educational VNA Project Kits for RF Engineers

Mini-Circuits has collaborated with 3D imaging sensor company Vayyar Imaging to offer microwave transceiver project kits with broad applicability for students and university programs spanning topics in electromagnetic theory, RF/microwave engineering, RF systems, and radar technology.

The first project kit, UVNA-63 includes all the elements students need to build a fully functioning vector network analyzer, develop S-Parameter algorithms, and perform real-time measurements of 2-port RF devices. The kit comprises of Vayyar's high-performance transceiver chip with a variety of RF components from Mini-Circuits along with control software, and a development environment for Python and MATLAB. The project addresses a gap in most RF curricula between classroom theory and the sophisticated equipment engineers use in the lab to perform complex measurements with the push of a button.

The UVNA-63 vector network analyzer project kits are available now for pre-order and will be delivered in September, for the upcoming semester. Pre-orders may be placed on the Mini-Circuits website. For more information, click here.
