Press Release Summary:
Built on Open Windows architecture, MS4640A Series microwave Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) is used for characterizing devices, optimizing designs, and maximizing throughput. If offers broad frequency span from single coaxial test port, covering 70 kHz to 70 GHz in a single instrument and 70 kHz to 110 GHz in Broadband configuration. VNA can achieve synthesized sweeps at 20 Âµsec/point, offers greater than 80 dB sensitivity, and has 100 dB dynamic range at 70 GHz.
Original Press Release:
VectorStar Family of RF, µW, mmW VNAs - Premium Line
Model Number: MS4640A Series
Frequency Range: 70 kHz to 70 GHz
The VectorStar® family is Anritsu's Premium VNA line, offering the highest overall performance on a modern platform. The MS4640A Series offers the best performance covering a span of 70 kHz to 70 GHz. For broadband applications, the ME7828A Series offers superior coverage spanning a range from 70 kHz to 110 GHz in a single 1 mm coaxial test port. For Anritsu's value Line VNA, check-out the Lightning Family that offers high performance such as Dynamic Range and Port Power, at speeds suitable for most R&D applications.
The Anritsu MS4640A Vector Network Analyzer offers a new level of performance for device modeling engineers struggling to accurately and reliably characterize their devices, for R&D engineers pushing the last fraction of a dB out of their state-of-the-art designs, and for the manufacturing engineer trying to maximize throughput without sacrificing accuracy.
Anritsu's MS4640A VNA offers the broadest coverage in a single instrument, 70 kHz to 70 GHz. The additional two decades at the low end are even more impressive than the guaranteed 70 GHz coverage on the high end, for better device modeling without having to switch to another RF VNA. The industry leading 100 dB dynamic range at 70 GHz, coupled with excellent raw performance, will offer the best accuracy and stability to the toughest measurements. And when you can achieve synthesized sweeps at the industry fastest 20 µs/point, while achieving greater than 80dB sensitivity, the result is the best all-around VNA available on the market today, and for a long time to come.
Anritsu's VNA is destined to become the ideal microwave VNA platform, built on an Open Windows architecture, with unlimited potential such as 100,001 points in single channel mode, with versatile connectivity, and intuitive interface. Backed by the only industry standard 3-year warranty and the most responsive sales support team, the MS4640A is the VNA of choice for the discerning engineer.
