- Anritsu Company introduces a 43.5 GHz frequency option for its 2- and 4-port ShockLine MS46122B, MS46322B, MS46522B, and MS46524B vector network analyzers (VNAs) with guaranteed specifications using Anritsu’s Extended-K type connectors and components.
- According to the Japanese company, the ShockLine family becomes the first VNA to support specified 43.5 GHz functionality in a K-connector environment.
With the introduction of the Extended-K calibration kits and accessories, the option eliminates the need to use inconvenient adaptors or completely change the connector type. It provides design and manufacturing engineers with an solution that adds the critical 3.5 GHz to a test environment for verification of products used in emerging applications.
The additional 3.5 GHz of guaranteed coverage enables customers to remain in the K-connector environment rather than transition to more expensive and less robust 2.4 mm connectors.
The ShockLine MS46122B, MS46322B, and MS46522B are 2-port VNAs that provide a range of price and performance in three distinct configurations to meet the needs of a variety of applications. The MS46122B USB VNAs are packaged in a compact 1U chassis and are externally controlled via USB from a user-supplied PC. The MS46322B is designed in a self-contained, compact, and rugged 2U chassis that includes the power supply and computer. The MS46522B Performance ShockLine VNA is suitable for test applications up to 92 GHz. For 4-port test environments, there is the ShockLine MS46524B series.
