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.

Anritsu Company introduces the MS462xD series of Scorpion® Vector Network Measurement Systems (VNMS) that integrates mixed-mode S-parameters, embedding/de-embedding and arbitrary impedance features into the versatile network analyzer family. The new MS462xD Scorpion VNMS is a cost-effective solution for manufacturers that need to easily conduct fast and accurate measurements on both single-ended and balanced devices operating through 6 GHz used in handsets.
