Morgan Hill, CA – November 24, 2015

Anritsu Company introduces an E-band option for its ShockLine™ MS46500B series of 2- and 4-port performance Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) that addresses the market need to lower cost-of-test for E-band components. With the option installed, the MS46500B series can reduce production costs and more efficiently verify the performance of high-frequency passive components, such as antennas, filters, and duplexers, during manufacturing.

In addition to the E-band frequency capability, Anritsu also introduces 20 GHz and 40 GHz options for the ShockLine MS46500B series. With these options, the MS46500B VNAs address the S-parameter and time-domain measurement requirements associated with microwave applications.

Cost-effective E-band Solution
With the 55 GHz to 92 GHz E-band frequency option, the MS46500B delivers a combination of high performance and economy unprecedented in the E-band VNA market, making it a superior choice over higher-priced broadband systems in cost-sensitive applications. Available in both 2- and 4-port configurations, it extends the frequency coverage of the ShockLine VNA family and makes the MS46500B ideal for testing mm-wave passive components used in 5G small cell networks, driver assistance/collision avoidance radar, near- and far-field antenna, and personal communication applications.

Microwave Options
The new 20 GHz and 40 GHz options add power control, LRL/LRM calibration and other capabilities previously unavailable in ShockLine microwave VNAs. The MS46500B, with the microwave options, is ideal for testing components used in network equipment, automotive, signal integrity, and system integration applications. The ShockLine MS46500B series is particularly well suited for integration into measurement systems, due to its typical dynamic range of 120 dB to 40 GHz, full remote programming capability and a small 3U rack-mountable package.

The 2-port MS46522B and 4-port MS46524B VNAs use the same software, command syntax, drivers, and programming environments as the other ShockLine instruments. This powerful feature enables reuse of program code written for ShockLine family VNAs on the E-band and microwave instruments with little or no alteration.
