The ZNBT40 from Rohde & Schwarz is a Multi-port vector network analyzer that operates from 9 kHz to 40 GHz offering up to 24 ports. The instrument can simultaneously test multiple DUTs or measure one DUT with up to 24 ports. It provides short measurement times of 3.5 ms for a sweep across 201 points, even in scenarios with a large number of ports.
The ZNBT40 has a wide dynamic range of up to 135 dB, high output power levels and inputs featuring high power-handling capacity. The instrument is primarily used in the development and production of active and passive multiport components such as GPS, WLAN, Bluetooth and frontend modules for multiband mobile phones. It is capable of determining all 576 S-parameters of a 24-port DUT.
The network analyzer has no display a space-saving feature that is especially beneficial in automated production. It can be controlled via an external monitor, mouse, and keyboard or via an external touchscreen.
This vector network analyzer available as a rack mount/benchtop unit with 2.92 mm male connectors. It supports various remote control options and is easy to integrate into automated test systems, for example, carrying out phased-array antenna measurements.
