Anritsu VectorStar to be Part of Advanced Calibration VNA Demonstrations During IMS


DVT Solutions to Showcase Benefits of GigaProbes High Frequency VNA Calibration Verification Boards with VectorStar® 70 GHz Model

Richardson, TX – May 24, 2016

Anritsu Company (booth #949) announces its VectorStar® MS4647B 70 GHz vector network analyzer (VNA) will be used as part of demonstrations showing an innovative calibration solution from DVT Solutions (booth #2541) during IMS 2016 in San Francisco May 24-26. The configuration will also feature 40 GHz – 67 GHz VNA calibration verification boards from GigaProbes®, designed and built by Signal Microwave using its high-performance connectors, thereby creating a solution that ensures measurement accuracy on high-frequency designs by avoiding errors due to improper calibration settings.

The VectorStar MS4647B VNA was selected for the demonstrations because of its excellent calibration stability over its extremely wide frequency range of 70 kHz to 70 GHz. It will be part of the demonstration with the new GigaProbes VNA calibration verification board that reduces VNA setup time and ensures repeatable measurements by precisely detecting measurement drift.

“As will be shown at IMS, our VectorStar platform has a number of performance advantages in high-frequency signal integrity applications. Combining the industry leading performance of our VNA with complementary support tools such as the GigaProbes calibration boards provides engineers with the complete tool set needed to accurately measure high-speed designs,” said Paul Innis, Vice President and General Manager of Anritsu Company.

“Integrating the high-performance Anritsu VectorStar with the GigaProbes VNA calibration boards creates a system that can be used by engineers to conduct differential and single-ended probing measurements for signal integrity analysis on high-speed passive linear differential interconnects, including PCI Express, SATA, and 10 GB/s Ethernet,” said Brian Shumaker, President, DVT Solutions, LLC.
