A 43.5GHz frequency option has been released by Anritsu for its 2- and 4-port ShockLine MS46122B, MS46322B, MS46522B, and MS46524B vector network analysers (VNAs) with guaranteed specifications using Anritsu’s Extended-K type connectors and components.
The option creates distinct cost-of-test and time-to-market advantages in high-frequency applications, including 5G, satellite, and signal integrity.
With the introduction of the Extended-K calibration kits and accessories, the option eliminates the need to use inconvenient adaptors or completely change the connector type.
It provides design and manufacturing engineers with an efficient solution that adds the critical 3.5GHz to a test environment for verification of products used in emerging applications.
The additional 3.5 GHz of guaranteed coverage enables customers to remain in the K-connector environment rather than transition to more expensive and less robust 2.4 mm connectors, saving cost and increasing compatibility across test environments.
The ShockLine MS46122B, MS46322B, and MS46522B are 2-port VNAs that provide a range of price and performance in three distinct configurations to meet the needs of a wide variety of applications.
The MS46122B USB VNAs are packaged in a compact 1U chassis and are externally controlled via USB from a user-supplied PC.
The MS46322B is designed in a self-contained, compact, and rugged 2U chassis that includes the power supply and computer.
The MS46522B Performance ShockLine VNA delivers performance in numerous test applications up to 92GHz.
