The ShockLine MS46322B series from Anritsu has three economy Vector Network Analyzers that operate from 1 MHz to 8/20/43.5 GHz. These 2-port VNAs are available in a self-contained, compact, and rugged 2U chassis that includes the power supply and computer. The series is based on Anritsu’s patented shockline VNA-on-chip technology, which simplifies the internal VNA architecture at high frequencies, reduces instrument cost, and enhances accuracy and measurement repeatability.
The entire series has a sweep speed of 130 microseconds per point and a dynamic range of better than 100 dB, making it suitable for testing devices like millimeter-wave (mm-Wave) antennas and other passive 5G components in engineering, manufacturing, and cost-sensitive education applications.
The VNAs integrate easily into rack-mount test systems due to their small size and remote programmability. They support SCPI command programming and software drivers for the most common programming environments. The whole family uses industry-standard LAN communications for remote control.
The ShockLine VNAs provide a powerful graphical user interface (GUI) for manual testing of devices. The full-featured user interface is enabled by attaching a (user-supplied) touchscreen monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
