Continual demand to accurately measure dielectric and magnetic properties of materials is a common need and is apparent in our every day lives. There is a need to quantitatively characterize material properties at RF and microwave frequencies. Learn more about the use of vector network analyzers (VNAs) as a flexible and versatile tool to accurately and quantitatively characterize material properties and showcase the broad applicability of the VNA as a tool to accurately do this at high frequencies.
Uncertainties and the Impact on Eye Diagrams/Time Domain Modeling
The characterization and measurement of E/O and O/E components at higher microwave frequencies has a different uncertainty distribution than at lower frequencies. A careful process can help minimize many of those categories. The individual uncertainty components have very different effects on final
subsystem modeled time domain results, such as eye diagrams. Understanding that error propagation can be useful. In a practical example, optimizing the critical uncertainty components can lead to noticeably better eye behavior in the final model.
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 technical data sheet provides technical specifications for the VectorStar ME7838A4 Series Multiport Broadband Vector Network Analyzers.
High-performance waveguide band system using
compact Anritsu mmWave modules.
This quick start guide provides a brief overview of the installation and use of 366xX-1 Verification Kits and the 2300-579 Performance Verification Software (PVS) with VectorStar MS4640A/B Series VNAs.
Refer to the VectorStar MS4640A/B Series 366xX-1 Verification Kits and 2300-579 PVS User Guide – 10410-00270 for detailed information about safety, installation, configuration, setup, and verification testing.
Quick Start Guide
The VectorStar ME7838A mm-wave system combines the MS4640B series VNA and 3739B test set to control 2 external mm-wave modules for measurement
frequencies from 110 GHz to 750 GHz and higher in waveguide bands. The
3739B test set routes the internal RF and LO signals from VectorStar thus
eliminating the need for external sources. If 4 ports are required, a SM6586 test set and the MN4697B 4 port test set with 2 additional modules can be attached. OML or VDI modules may be used.
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
In this Understanding Guide we will introduce the basic fundamentals of the Vector Network
Analyzer (VNA). Specific topics to be covered include phase and amplitude measurements,
scattering parameters (S-parameters), and the polar and Smith chart displays.
This guide provides warranty, safety and regulatory compliance information for the VectorStar™ Series VNA products. The VectorStar™ Series VNA products provide powerful network measurement tools for
performance analysis of RF and microwave devices with frequency ranges spanning from 70 kHz to 70 GHz in a single connector, and up to 1.1 THz using broadband mm-wave modules.

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.
