Four-Port Network Analyzer for Measurements up to 67 GHz

The high-end R&S ZVA67 vector network analyzer from Rohde & Schwarz is now also available as a four-port model. This is the first network analyzer on the market to feature four test ports for measurements up to 67 GHz. Its high dynamic range (110 dB at 67 GHz) and output power (6 dBm at 67 GHz) give the R&S ZVA67 the flexibility and performance required for characterizing components and modules in the microwave and millimeter-wave range. It allows users in research and development to determine the S parameters of multiport devices quickly and with high precision. As an extra benefit, the analyzer's four internal signal sources reduce test system complexity and the number of instruments required, e.g. for measuring frequency-converting DUTs, because no external signal generators are needed. The device, with its unique architecture that includes four ports, four integrated signal sources and eight receivers, enables measurements on multiport devices such as mixers, couplers or balanced DUTs, with just one instrument.
