Microwave Components and Device Characterization

Microwave Components and Device Characterization


As modern signaling standards push the limits beyond LTE into 5G, engineers are faced with verifying their complex, high-bandwidth designs under tighter time-to-market constraints. Whether it is for aerospace/military, commercial wireless, public safety, automotive, or IoT, the proper test solution can ensure the accurate and efficient verification and characterization of components for next-generation applications. Anritsu offers an advanced portfolio of comprehensive measurement tools for high-speed communications signals.


Anritsu continues to be the leader in vector network analyzer (VNA) technologies for every measurement scenario. Our VNAs provide pulse measurements, S-parameters, and more data to ensure that devices can be used in designs as diverse as Bluetooth products, 4G/5G mobile phones, military electronic-warfare (EW), connected cars, radar systems, and more.

With industry leading frequency span from 70 kHz to 145 GHz, VectorStar offers a new performance benchmark for measuring RF, microwave, and millimeter wave devices. VectorStar is particularly well-suited for active device characterization and other R&D functions covering frequency ranges from 70 kHz to 70, 110, and 145 GHz. ShockLine VNAs are particularly well-suited for passive E-band product/component development. Both VNAs utilize Non-Linear Transmission Line technology samplers. ShockLine VNAs are simple, economic, high-performance instruments for testing cost-sensitive passive devices in engineering, manufacturing, and education.

Bluetooth Testers

As a Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG) member since 1999, Anritsu has actively participated in the development of the standard from Core Specification version 1.0. The Bluetooth Test Set MT8852B is the market-leading RF measuring instrument that supports Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) and Bluetooth low energy (BLE) measurement of transmit power, frequency, modulation, and receiver sensitivity required by Bluetooth RF test specifications to verify designs used in connected cars, smart homes, consumer devices, and other applications.

Power Meters

Anritsu’s family of USB and traditional power meters deliver the precise power measurements necessary for today’s high-speed devices. Our MA24200 series USB sensors provide accurate true-RMS power measurements of almost any signal across a wide dynamic range. The super fast measurement speeds make them perfect for any automated test procedure. For benchtop solutions, the ML2490 series is for narrow fast rising-edge pulse power measurements while the ML2480B conducts power measurements on signals such as LTE and WLAN. For CW applications, there are the MA24300A USB meters or ML2430A benchtop meter, offering a combination of accuracy, speed, and flexibility in a low-cost package.

Spectrum/Signal Analyzers

Anritsu spectrum/signal analyzers, such as the MS2840A, MS2830A and MS269xA series, have the excellent general level accuracy, dynamic range and performance of a high-end spectrum analyzer, making them flexible single-instruments solutions for Tx and Rx measurements. Their ability to capture wideband signals and integration of FFT technology supports multifunction signal analyses in both the time and frequency domains. This makes them well suited for cellular, Land Mobile Radio/Public Safety Radio and IoT/M2M communications. The MS2840Aand MS2830A can be integrated with the High Performance Waveguide Mixer MA2806A or MA2808A that enables spectrum measurements between 50 GHz and 75 GHz or between 60 GHz and 90 GHz. Connecting the high-performance waveguide mixer to the MS2840A and MS2830A support high dynamic range measurements, as well as eliminates image-response effects at wideband signal measurements, making it ideal for measuring mmWave wideband wireless equipment.

Signal Generators

Whether the design is for satellite communications or defense systems, Anritsu provides the best synthesized signal generators that offer engineers high-signal purity, low noise and excellent frequency stability. Instruments satisfy a full range of modulation capabilities for signal simulations from simple to the most complex, including Amplitude (AM), Frequency (FM), Phase (φ) and Pulse (PM).
