The MS46524B is a series of 4-port Performance ShockLine Vector Network Analyzers. Delivering an unprecedented level of value and performance, including best-in-class dynamic range, the Performance series lowers cost-of-test and speeds time to market in numerous testing applications up to 43.5 GHz. These applications include designing and manufacturing multi-port mobile network equipment, mobile devices, automotive cables, high-speed data interconnects and system integration components.
The MS46524B configured with option 10, 20, or 40 brings RF to microwave frequency capabilities to the Performance ShockLine family. These frequency options, combined with powerful ShockLine software, provide a cost effective solution for the most challenging, passive device testing.
For applications requiring time domain analysis, options 2 and 22 are available. Option 2 enables the MS46524B to provide real time Bandpass and Lowpass time domain functionality. Lowpass time domain enables a TDR like display with capability of showing real impedance over distance or time. Option 22 equips the MS46524B with file based Signal integrity (SI) tools for debugging SI issues and validating circuit models.
The MS46524B-010 VNA has additional options available. Options 51 and 61, Access loops and Bias Tee respectively, allow maximum flexibility for custom test setups. Access loops increase instrument noise floor and lowers the receiver compression point allowing for testing of DUTs with high dynamic range requirements. Bias Tees provide DC power for device testing that requires biasing while testing.
The MS46524B series comes in a 3U high chassis and uses the same GUI, software, command syntax, drivers, and programming environments as the rest of the ShockLine family.
