The TTR500 Series from Tektronix is Computer Controlled USB Vector Network Analyzer. The VNA is available in two frequency configurations 100 KHz to 3 GHz and 6 GHz. This USB-Based VNA offers a full 2-port, 2-path S-parameter VNA for such applications as measuring passive/active components, antennas and matching networks, RF modules, test cables, adapters and more. It has a 122 dB dynamic range, less than 0.008 dB trace noise, and -50 to +7 dBm output power, all in a compact package weighing less than 4 pounds.
An important feature of the TTR500 is the built-in bias tee that is accessible on both ports and allows for active devices, such as amplifiers, to be easily DC biased. No longer will users need to contend with an external bias tee or pay a premium for an instrument with an optional internal bias tee. The TTR500's built-in bias tee allows for 0 to ± 24 V, and 0 to 200 mA on both ports for active devices.
The VNA includes advanced features including new VectorVu-PC analysis software and the only built-in bias tee for testing active devices in this category. Pricing for this low cost USB-VNA solution starts at $9,000.
