Precision USB SmartCal MN25408A

Precision USB SmartCal (4 Port)

  • Auto load of calibration kit coefficients - Speeds up setup and reduces calibration error
  • Auto sense – Prevents bad calibrations due to incorrect or poor connections
  • VNA to SmartCal port mapping – Increases flexibility and simplifies multiport calibrations
  • ShockLine software auto detects SmartCal – Simple, easy to use calibration software
  • No internal heater – No wait calibration
  • USB powered and controlled – Convenient one plug interface
  • Single connection calibrations – Reduces wear and tear on connectors and cables
  • Supports all ShockLine VNAs – 1, 2, and 4-port calibrations available
  • SCPI command set – Easy integration into automated test environments
  • Low cost – Automatic and fast calibrations at a low price
  • Small size – Convenient size provides easier use when moving between VNAs

The SmartCal MN25408A is a 4-port auto calibration unit covering a frequency range from 300 kHz to 8.5 GHz. The MN25208A currently offers 3 connector options: N(f)-N(f), K(f)-K(f), 3.5 mm(f) - 3.5 mm(f). The MN25408A delivers automatic, fast and error-free calibrations for any ShockLine VNA. The SmartCal automatically powers on via an USB connection and loads calibration kit coefficients from on-board memory into the ShockLine software. The SmartCal is ready to use immediately after detection by the VNA because it doesn't require warm-up.

SmartCal improves productivity by providing easier and faster single connection calibrations. Port auto sense and port mapping reduce errors and make multiport calibrations easier. The 4-port SmartCal simplifies 4-port calibrations by minimizing interconnection steps. The MN25408A, along with easyTest, can also be used in guided graphical test procedures to further simplify complex calibrations.
