VectorStar 寬頻向量網路分析儀

The VectorStar ME7838x Series broadband VNA offers the widest available 2-port single frequency sweep from 70 kHz to 110, 125, 145, and 220 GHz with mmWave bands up to 1.1 THz

The VectorStar ME7838 broadband series system provides high performance in a compact mmWave module utilizing the Anritsu Nonlinear Transmission Line (NLTL) technology, with system coverage from 70 kHz to 110, 125, 145, and 220 GHz. The ME7838 series is the only broadband system with positive raw directivity in multiple bands. The result is better calibration and measurement stability with significantly longer time between calibrations for accurate measurements and improved productivity.

The VectorStar ME7838 VNA series delivers 109 dB dynamic range at 110 GHz, 102 dB at 220 GHz and excellent noise floor performance for high-sensitivity measurements across the entire sweep range. Stable broadband performance means you can make high-accuracy measurements all day, with the confidence that your calibration remains rock solid! Spend less time calibrating and more time measuring.

The VectorStar ME7838G VNA addresses the market need to conduct on-wafer measurements that span into the sub-Terahertz region for more accurate device characterization. The system offers unprecedented broadband coverage from 70 kHz to 220 GHz in a single sweep and is optimized for on-wafer measurements utilizing the TITAN T220 probe from MPI. An innovative design allows the 220 GHz probe to connect directly to the mmWave module for accurate, stable on-wafer measurements and avoiding the limits of threaded connectors.
