Vector network analyzers (VNAs) are essential test instruments for firms that need to characterize RF/microwave components. However, fully equipped, rack-mounted VNA systems can carry hefty price tags. Fortunately, the economical VNA-0440 and VNA-0460 VNAs from MegiQ provide two-port bidirectional VNA measurements from 400 MHz to 4 and 6 GHz, respectively, and at a fraction of the cost of full-sized VNA systems.
These VNAs are based on an innovative architecture, and leverage the processing power of an external PC running Windows XP through 10 and dedicated software. They deliver highly accurate, calibrated, 12-term, error-corrected S-parameter measurements on active and passive devices under test (DUTs).
