Rohde & Schwarz announced models and options to the R&S ZNB vector network analyzer, addressing applications in the mmWave range such as 5G at FR2 frequencies and applications in aerospace and defense in the Ka band.
The R&S ZNB26 provides network analysis up to 26.5 GHz, and R&S ZNB43 extends the upper frequency of the midrange VNA family to 43.5 GHz. The R&S ZNB vector network analyzer is now available with a maximum frequency of 43.5 GHz.
The R&S ZNB, which comes with features such as ease of operation and a measurement performance which combines outstanding speed and dynamic range with temperature stability, is a leading instrument in the midrange class.
The R&S ZNB26 extended the maximum frequency to 26.5 GHz. The R&S ZNB43 adds a frequency range of 100 kHz to 43.5 GHz. Rohde & Schwarz will launch this latest model at the IMS2022 (International Microwave Symposium) held in Denver, CO, USA from June 19 to 24, 2022.
The R&S ZNB43 is available as 2 port or 4 port models, with two connector types, either 2.4 mm or 2.92 mm. It also offers optionally an extended power range and a second internal source. The R&S ZNB43 is suitable for characterization of passive devices such as filters, couplers, and switches.
The R&S ZNB supports inline calibration units which remain connected to the device throughout the test period. In multiport setups with large numbers of ports, where instead of a time-consuming reconnection of DUT cables, recalibration is reduced to pressing a button on the R&S ZNB.
Rohde & Schwarz will be exhibiting at IMS2022 in booth #7056 in Denver, CO, USA from June 19 to 24, 2022.
