The recently announced 300 MHz and 6 GHz Vector Network Analyzers are totally new type of analyzers designed to install in a PCI slot.
The PCI solution is a best fit for automated measuring equipment; up to 8 NA boards can be installed as a multi-channel Mini-system. But it is also an easy solution for educational purposes. The analyzers are used for evaluation of the frequency characteristics of ceramic crystal oscillators, SAW resonators, RFID chips and many other RF components used in a broad range of electronics. Return loss measurements on antennae of cell phones, WLAN, BT, GPS, DVB, Sat radio and game machines are typical applications. Measurement parameters are magnitude, phase, SWR, group delay in kartesian and polar coordinates with Smith display.Calibration can be done as 1Port Full Cal, Normalize, Transmission Full Cal with external calibration sets.
Model R3760 features a frequency range of 300 MHz to 6 GHz, -10 to 0 dBm output power and SMA RF connectors.
