Anritsu Company introduces a 43.5 GHz frequency option for its 2- and 4-port ShockLine MS46122B, MS46322B, MS46522B, and MS46524B vector network analyzers (VNAs) with guaranteed specifications using Anritsu’s Extended-KTM type connectors and components.
The ShockLine family becomes the first VNA to support specified 43.5 GHz functionality in a K-connector environment, creating 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.
Anritsu leveraged its design and characterization capabilities to extend the K-connector frequency performance. 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 unprecedented value and performance in numerous test applications up to 92 GHz.
For 4-port test environments, there is the ShockLine MS46524B series. The VNAs deliver economical and performance efficiencies in a multiport VNA to lower the cost-of-test and speed time-to-market.
