ShockLine Family of VNAs

ShockLine Family of Vector Network Analyzers

Simple. Economical. Great Performance.

Anritsu’s ShockLine family of Vector Network Analyzers (VNA) has six different models with a variety of options designed to address the RF and microwave test needs in manufacturing, engineering labs/R&D, mil/aero, and university environments. With a wide selection of products to choose from, there is a range of solutions that meet your unique performance, application, and budget needs. Whether you are looking for an economical, portable 1-port product or a full-featured solution that provides best-in-class performance, the ShockLine family of VNAs enables you to get the right level of performance for your application needs while optimizing your cost-of-test.

Anritsu’s modern VNA architecture employs patented nonlinear transmission line (NLTL) Shockline technology, which enables market leading high-frequency measurement performance at an economical cost. The ShockLine family of VNAs provides you with:


Simplified VNA architecture

  • Lower maintenance cost, reduced down time and operating costs


Dynamic Range

  • Better characterization of highly reflective devices and measurement of weak crosstalk and isolation



  • Shockline IC design reduces temperature variation, resulting in better measurement accuracy and repeatability



  • One sampler covers broadband frequencies
  • Lower cost for measurements over a wide frequency range



  • Great performance in a compact form factor
  • Smaller footprint in manufacturing



  • Improved VNA price to performance ratio
  • Dramatic cost reduction for high-frequency applications
