Broadband VectorStar ME7838D Technical Data Sheet & Configuration Guide

The VectorStar ME7838D 145 GHz Broadband system is the world’s first VNA combining RF, microwave, and two mm-wave bands in a single coaxial output. Through the use of the Anritsu-developed 0.8 mm coaxial connector, frequencies up to 145 GHz can be propagated within a coaxial transmission line without waveguide flange connections. A broadband frequency sweep from 70 kHz to 145 GHz is now available without the need to concatenate multiple systems. The result is more accurate device characterization from near-DC through the W band and F band frequencies. W band devices can now be characterized beyond the operating frequency of the application for more accurate modeling and higher success rate from the first design turn. The ME7838D fully supports the 3744A-Rx 30 GHz to 125 GHz receiver for noise figure measurements up to 125 GHz. Integrating Anritsu’s unique strength in nonlinear transmission line technology (NLTL), the ME7838D system offers many advances in broadband performance over traditional systems.

Sequential Peeling: a Model-Based Approach to Structure Identification and De-embedding

Sequential peeling is a model/measurement-based method at network extraction for de-embedding. It uses isolatable phase responses of defects to create a lumped-element description of a structure (shunt, series, or cross-bar) that can be physically meaningful and useful in sequential de-embedding. The method works best when the significant reflections are electrically small and isolated and the overall loss of the fixture is not too great but there are corrections available to help with the loss element.
