Vector network analyzers (VNAs) are test instruments considered almost synonymous with the RF/microwave industry. They are vital to the 50-Ω impedance matching of components through their scattering-parameter (S-parameter) measurements, and are rarely used outside of companies and laboratories working with RF/microwave equipment. Nonetheless, they have traditionally been “high-end” instruments, in terms of both performance and cost.
Many high-frequency designers can
