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")

Absolute Maximum Ratings

  • Port1/port2: Maximum input power +20 dBm
  • Port1/port2: Maximum DC: 5V

    Software features

      • Available for Windows, MacOS and Linux
      • OSL calibration functionality
      • Time domain measurements (DTF)
      • Plot S-Parameter, Impedance, Phase, Resistance, Reactance, VSWR
      • Plot in Smith chart
      • Export in Excel, Touchstone
      • Save complete sets of measurement together in one proprietary project file

      You can download and test the software without hardware. There are two demo measurements available to test the software features.
