VectorStar® ME7838A System Frequency Coverage Extended to 750 GHz with 4-port Configuration

— ME7838A Gives R&D Engineers Ability to Conduct Power Sweeps up to 55 dB in Millimeter-Ranges to 750 GHz —


Munich – June 28, 2012 – Anritsu Company introduces a 4-port configuration for its ME7838A VectorStar that extends the Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) measurement system’s capability to 750 GHz and higher. Incorporating a number of design features that result in best-in-class performance, the ME7838A provides R&D engineers designing 4-port or differential millimeter-wave (mm-wave) components with the ability to sweep power across a wide range at frequencies up to 750 GHz using external mm-wave modules without the need for manual attenuators.

The VectorStar ME7838A, the first mm-wave VNA system with real-time power leveling, has best-in-class stability with the widest power level control. The mm-wave system detects IF and RF power and provides correction to the mm-wave power in real time and without the need for software correction feedback. The method delivers stable mmwave power even at low levels and reduces the risk of overdriving power-sensitive mm-wave devices – inherent in other systems. Faster power calibrations are also achieved with the ME7838A VectorStar, compared to competitive mm-wave VNA systems, helping to reduce test time and cost of test.

The 2 Port system configuration includes the MS4640A VectorStar and 3739A/SM6522 test set, which operates mm-wave modules.

Industry-leading performance makes the ME7838A VectorStar Millimeter wave VNA system well suited for a number of emerging high-frequency applications. It can accurately test 4-port components, as well as differential devices, such as amplifiers used in e-band communications systems, automotive collision avoidance systems, airport radar, materials measurement, and homeland security imaging systems.
