VectorStar 4-Port Broadband VNA ME7838E4/E4X/A4/A4X/D4/G4

ME7838x4 Series
The VectorStar series of broadband Vector Network Analyzers offer the widest available 4-port single sweep measurements from 70 kHz to 110, 125, 145, and 150 GHz with mmWave bands up to 1.1 THz
Overview

The VectorStar ME7838x4 Broadband systems provide high performance 4-port measurements utilizing compact mmwave modules with industry-best calibration stability. While other broadband systems continue to provide raw performance with negative directivity in critical frequency bands, the ME7838 series, which includes the 4-port systems includes broadband systems with positive raw directivity. The result is better calibration stability and better measurement stability with significantly longer time between calibrations for accurate measurements and improved productivity. The new ME7838G4 takes high performance 4-port broadband measurements to a new level by incorporating the Anritsu MA25400A mmWave module. The MA25400A module combines Anritsu developed Nonlinear Transmission Line (NLTL) technology in a small, compact high performance mmWave module with a 0.6 mm test port connector for measurements up to 220 GHz.
