'Best-in-class' two and four-port VNAs

Anritsu has expanded its ShockLine range of vector network analysers (VNAs) with the introduction of the Performance ShockLine MS46500B series. Said to deliver best-in-class dynamic range and maximum output power, the MS46500B is suited to designing and manufacturing mobile network equipment, mobile devices, automotive cables, high-speed data interconnects and system integration components.

The MS46500B series is comprised of the two port MS46522B and the four port MS46524B models. Each features an independent source per VNA port; all the sources can sweep at the same time for measurement of forward and reverse S-parameters simultaneously. This simultaneous sweep feature allows two-port measurements to be conducted twice as fast and four-port measurements 4x as fast.

The VNA is housed in a 3U high chassis to fit in conventional rack systems and its short depth allows more bench space for cabling and the DUT.

In addition to the MS46500B series, the ShockLine family consists of the MS46121A 1-port USB VNAs, MS46122A 2-port USB VNAs, and MS46322A Economy ShockLine VNAs.
