Noise figure measurement capability is available for Anritsu Company’s VectorStar MS4640 and ME7838A analyzers. Option MS4640A-041 equips VectorStar to be the only VNA family with 70 kHz to 125 GHz noise figure measurement based on a receiver optimized for measurements from 30 GHz to 125 GHz.
The MS4640A-041 option provides a wider noise figure measurement range and greater configuration flexibility. It features a simple, low-cost termination, rather than a specialized noise source, as part of the cold source noise figure measurement method.
The MS4640A-041 option is priced at $15,000 and is available in approximately 8 weeks ARO. The 125 GHz receiver, model SM 6609, is priced at $30,250 and available in approximately 16 weeks ARO.
