This guide provides a return loss performance verification test procedures for Anritsu model MS46121A/B
ShockLine 1-port USB VNA. Blank performance verification test records are provided at the end of this
document. Make copies of the blank test records and use them to record measured values.
The One-port ShockLine VNA Declaration of Conformity is a special document issued by Anritsu to state that the product meets all of the applicable legislation and European directives. P/N: 10101-00035
The MS46121A is part of the ShockLine™ family of Vector Network Analyzers from Anritsu. It is available in two frequency ranges of 40 MHz to 4 GHz and 150 kHz to 6 GHz, and is capable of 1-port s-parameter and band pass time domain (distance to fault) measurements standard.
The MS46121A series is controlled through USB from an external PC. The MS46121A runs the same software as the rest of the ShockLine family, providing a powerful graphical user interface for testing of passive devices. Up to 16 MS46121A VNAs can be controlled from one computer, making it ideal for testing multiple 1-port devices in parallel for improved test productivity and throughput.
This document provides detailed specifications for the MS46121A series Vector Network Analyzers (VNAs) and related options.
Higher data rates require accurate measurements to provide the confidence needed to achieve the desired performance. Measurement tools must help shorten design times and ensure stable signal integrity in mass production. VNAs play a key role in helping both the RF and signal integrity engineers meet the performance challenges of increasing data rates. This paper provides a review of signal integrity-based VNA measurements for digital engineers and correlated VNA measurements to key signal integrity parameters for RF engineers. For those needing to increase their current measurement performance, Anritsu offers a wide range of test equipment that is designed to meet both your budget and performance needs for either R&D or manufacturing.
Download the latest software for the ShockLine VNA family. This software works with the B series: MS46121B, MS46122B, MS46322B, MS46522B and MS46524B, and the A series: MS46121A, MS46122A, MS46131A, and MS46322A.
Note: This installation may require your host to be re-booted to support updates to existing drivers.
This installation will require the insertion of services and drivers to your host. Please turn off all Web and Host Virus Detection Applications before starting the installation. Upon completion of the installation turn on your virus Detection Applications to their previous state.
The Cal Kit File Maker program provides all the files necessary to create a calibration kit file for the VectorStar, Lightning and ShockLine VNAs. The program provides a convenient set of menus for entering the required information for the different standards in the calibration kit. The program does not perform calculations, it takes the input provided and creates files in the appropriate format.
CAPVNA is a Windows program to capture, display, save and print the graphical and textual data from ShockLine VNAs. The displayed data can be loaded from a flash drive where it was previously saved at the VNA or captured directly from the VNA. The displayed data can be saved in a variety of formats to the PC's internal disk drive or a network drive and printed to a local or network printer (including color).
