Anritsu has released its MT8000A solution with a 5G base station emulation function. The product supports 5G NR RF Tx measurements and protocol tests needed to support advances in communications technologies in line with the development of 5G NR.
Copper Mountain Technologies' C2220 2-port vector network analyser operates in the frequency range of 100 kHz to 20 GHz and adds direct receiver access for special applications involving external directional coupling, including load pull and high power measurements.
Copper Mountain Technologies' C2209 2-port analyser operates in the frequency range of 100 kHz to 9 GHz. The product offers a typical dynamic range of 162 dB (1 Hz IF BW) and sweep speeds as low as 10 µs per point.
Tektronix's TTR500 Series vector network analyser (VNA) features a 122 dB dynamic range and 6 GHz frequency range. It also includes VectorVu-PC analysis software and what is claimed to be the only built-in bias tee for testing active devices in this category.
When measuring the performance of waveguide components with a vector network analyser, non-idealities of any uncalibrated VNA introduce uncertainty in the measurement results.
The MegiQ VNA0440 is a compact USB-driven vector network analyser (VNA) manufactured in the Netherlands. The bidirectional, 2-port VNA allows detailed impedance measurements of antennas, components and circuits covering 400 to 4000 MHz.
Anritsu expands its ShockLine family of vector network analysers with the introduction of the Performance ShockLine MS46500B series. Delivering a high level of value and performance, including high dynamic range and maximum output power, the series is said to lower the cost of test in applications up to 8.5 GHz.
