VNA hardware version 2.0 (Released Feb 2017)

Hardware specifications

  • 2-port Vector Network Analyzer
  • Measure reflection and transmission coefficients on both ports (S11, S21, S12, S22) - magnitude and phase
  • Frequency range: 500 kHz to 4 GHz; Measurements outside this region might be possible but are not guaranteed. Contact us if you would like to measure in a particular frequency range.
  • Linear, logarithmic and listed scan
  • Dynamic range (typically):
@350 MHz up to 70 dB  (System dynamic range);
@4 GHz up to 40 dB  (System dynamic range)
Please, note that the dynamic range varies upon frequency, calibration parameters and measurement speed. See  example measurements  of couple of examples
  • Output power -14 dBm at 100MHz, varies over frequency
  • Impedance from 3 to 1000 Ohms
  • Measurement speed: about 10 ms per step plus communication (for example a 1001 points scan takes 12 seconds)
  • Number of steps: 1 to 10001
  • Frequency setting resolution: 1 Hz
  • Can be used as a simple signal generator

General information

  • Connection to PC: mini-USB
  • RF connectors: SMA female
  • Weight about 110 grams (about 3.9 oz)
  • (length x width x height): 90mm x 64 mm x 26mm (about 3.5" x 2.5" x 1")

Software features
