Vector Network Measurement Systems
The new 4-port Scorpion now includes powerful simulation tools, such as mixed-mode S-parameters analysis, that provide real-time performance feedback on critical RF components used in handsets, including SAW filters. Accurate feedback is ensured through new de-embedding utilities that provide compensation techniques for typical test fixture environments. The MS462xD is well suited for applications requiring ripple and insertion loss measurements on the order of 0.1 dB because the VNMS's arbitrary impedance transformations preserve accuracy when handling non-50 ohm measurement situations. In addition, newly integrated embedding utilities, consisting of the most extensive library of circuit primitives, increases productivity when simulating the final matched behavior of components.
