How to Build a DIY Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) that’s Actually Useful

RF parts maker Mini-Circuits came up with the idea of developing circuit board that can be the basis for inexpensive-but-useful vector network analyzers that can provide S-parameter and Smith chart data. In this short video, Mini-Circuits president Ted Heil talks about how students can connect theory with the actual measurements at a cost that’s quite economical.

Mini-Circuits recently 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.
