The R&S ZNA high-end vector network analyzer (VNA) now features models with 50 GHz and 67 GHz maximum frequencies. This opens up the VNA’s excellent RF performance, unique hardware concept and innovative touch operation to new areas of application. Signal integrity measurements as well as A&D and 5G component and module characterization are main applications for the new analyzer models. The R&S ZNA includes wide dynamic range and extremely low trace noise, and comes with a user-friendly, purely touch based GUI.
Its unique hardware platform offers up to four internal, phase coherent sources plus a fifth source which can be used as a second internal local oscillator or as an additional source for measurements on mixers. In combination with up to eight truly parallel measurement receivers, the R&S ZNA hardware architecture is ideal for demanding measurements on components and modules. Covering the 5G frequency bands and, in combination with Rohde & Schwarz mmWave converters, the 6G frequency bands, the R&S ZNA is a future-proof solution for research on active and passive components such as LNAs, filters, antennas and mixers.
