The test and measurement company said the capabilities of the VectorStar ME7838AX/EX systems to sweep and provide characterized data through 125 GHz provide design engineers with the ability to improve their device models for improvements in first time yields and performance.

Anritsu is offering four broadband VectorStar-based VNA models from 10 MHz (optional 70 kHz) to 125 GHz with guaranteed specifications. The ME7838AX, ME7838A4X, ME7838EX and ME7838E4X meet the market need for accurate verification of components and broadband applications operating at 122 GHz.

Anritsu also introduced the 3656C Series calibration and verification kits to support measurements to 125 GHz. Four versions are available to meet customer requirements and needs.

Calibration kits are available with cal. coefficients (.ccf) only and with or without a verification kit, said Anritsu. Anritsu also offers .s1p database definitions (and .ccf) calibration kits with or without verification kits.

Other performance benefits of VectorStar broadband systems are dynamic range at 120/125 GHz, calibration and measurement stability of 0.05° over 24 hours, and broadband measurement speed of 1 second at 1601 points, 10 kHz IFBW.
