Morgan Hill, Calif. – Tailored for the aerospace, defense and general-purpose field applications, Anritsu Co.’s MS202xB/MS203xB VNA Master series handheld RF vector network analyzers (VNAs) provide frequency coverage from 500 kHz to 4/6 GHz, and feature multi-instrument functionality in a rugged, lightweight design that can withstand harsh environments.
VNA Master provides field engineers with a powerful S-parameter measurement tool for on-site installation and maintenance activities, especially two-port transmission measurements such as filter tuning, component test, and phase matching cables. The VNA Master is also an all-in-one tool that can replace laboratory grade instruments, such as scalar analyzers, vector voltmeters, power meters and spectrum analyzers, in the field. According to Anritsu, the VNA Master is the highest-performing RF handheld tool for filter tuning based on its fast display updates of 850 usec/point and typical dynamic range of 100 dB.
The MS202xB/MS203xB VNA Master series is designed with a 2-port vector network analyzer architecture that provides S11 and S21 measurements that are generally 10 times more accurate than scalar measurement approaches found in other economy handheld tools, according to Anritsu. For example, the VNA Master can measure filter passband insertion loss (i.e., S21) with better than 0.1 dB precision; a scalar approach is on the order of 1.0 dB precision.
The MS203xB VNA Master models add integrated spectrum analysis for on-site verification or trouble-shooting. With frequency coverage of 100 kHz to 4/6 GHz, the instruments can detect everything between small signals and interference sources. Using the standard preamplifier, display average noise level (DANL) is -152 dBm in 10 Hz resolution bandwidth (RBW). Dynamic range is >95 dB in 10 Hz RBW. The phase noise at 1 GHz is -100 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset.
