In 1965, Anritsu filed the patent that defined the first modern Vector Network Analyzer (VNA).
We are proud to continue that tradition of innovation to the present day—with the world’s first portfolio of VNAs that bring Nonlinear Transmission Line (NLTL) technology to every measurement scenario from on-wafer device characterization to R&D testing to manufacturing and field operations.

Anritsu is the leader of high frequency microwave connector technology and is driven by an ongoing commitment to exceed customer needs. Anritsu created and trademarked the K Connector with coverage to 40 GHz, along with a complete family of 40 GHz test equipment. It was an immediate success and today is used on many commercial components, test fixtures, and
defense systems. P/N: 11410-00235
Overview of RF and Microwave instruments available to meet a variety of solutions. Featuring the frequency range, measurements, and other key features. P/N: 11410-00800
Vector network analyzers (VNAs) are used to measure the performance of a wide variety of passive and active RF and microwave devices. Passive devices can be less demanding to test than active devices, thus requiring less performance from the VNA. However, one interesting exception to this is the measurement of very low insertion loss passive components such as precision adapters or airlines. These types of devices can present a difficult challenge to characterize because of the desire for very low uncertainties on these small insertion losses. This application note talks about these challenges and provides a helpful technique. P/N: 11410-01090
The ShockLine family of vector network analyzers (VNAs) achieve a new level of capability, flexibility, and value

These applications include characterizing and manufacturing, multi-port mobile network equipment, mobile devices, automotive cables, high-speed data interconnects and system integration components. P/N: 11410-00860
The superposition technique relies on the inherent linear nature of a transmission line, and mathematically derives the differential and common-mode transmission line characteristics through superposition while stimulating just one side of the balanced transmission line at a time. The true-balanced/differential technique, also known as True-Mode Stimulus, uses two sources to create actual differential and common-mode stimuli. This white paper offers guidance to signal integrity designers on the differences between these approaches and which one may best fit their need. P/N: 11410-00659

This user guide walks you through the ADK software utility. The ADK software is required for Advanced Time Domain (option 22), which is a licensed option available on the MS46522B and MS46524B VNAs.
This manual provides service and maintenance information for the Anritsu ShockLine MS4652xB Series Vector Network Analyzer. The information includes product description, performance verification procedures,
parts removal and replacement procedures, and troubleshooting information.
The MN4765B is a characterized, unamplified photodiode module. It is used
as an optical receiver with the Anritsu MS464xB and MS4652xB Series
VNAs to perform highly accurate and stable optoelectronic measurements of
both modulators (E/O) and photoreceivers (O/E). Bandwidth and wavelength
coverage depends on the option selected when the module is ordered. The
MN4765B allows error-corrected Transfer Function, Group Delay, and
Return Loss measurements of optoelectronic components.
As fiber and free-space optical communication bandwidths increase, the need for very high speed optical
modulators and detectors has also increased. The frequency response characterization of these electrical-to optical
(E/O, modulators sometimes integrated with lasers) and optical-to-electrical (O/E, photo detectors and receivers) converters can be important in terms of such parameters as bandwidth, flatness, phase linearity and
By using instrument grade O/E calibration modules characterized by Anritsu and de-embedding
techniques included in both VectorStar and ShockLine software, Anritsu VNAs can make s-parameter
measurements of high speed optical components just like their electrical counterparts.
This paper presents an accurate, flexible and cost-effective technique to conduct electro-optical testing on fiber optic components, such as laser modulators and photodiodes, using VNAs. The simplicity of Anritsu’s MN4765B O/E calibration modules allows highly accurate, vector-error-corrected and stable measurements with the full line of Anritsu VNAs.
