This product has been discontinued Replacement Model(s) : MS4640B Series

The Lightning family of microwave vector network analyzers encompasses a wide range of high performance, component test tools designed to address the growing needs of defense, satellite, radar, broadband communication, and optoelectronic component markets. Specific models and added options offer higher levels of measurement capability, including Time Domain, Gain Compression, Harmonic, IMD, Frequency Translation, Multiport, and E/O and O/E measurements, in addition to fast and accurate S-parameter measurements. Complete measurement solutions to 20, 40, and 65 GHz are available in microwave models 37x47, 37x69, and 37x97, respectively.

The Lightning 37000E family of VNAs offers the best overall value in any VNA. Above all, it is a solid performance VNA without any architectural compromises to reduce system cost. It is a mature platform that offers measurement speed that is more than suitable for the R&D environment. The 200 series 37200E is configured for passive measurements, without step attenuators or bias tees. The 300 series 37300E has the complete configuration for both active and passive components test.
