Anritsu is set to unveil its latest test solutions, including the VectorStar Vector Network Analyser (VNA) platform, at IMS 2013 in Seatle. The VectorStar platform is touted to be a solution for device characterisation, as well as solutions for measuring components and sub-systems used in radar, high-speed serial, microwave backhaul, wireless network and other applications.

For signal integrity engineers, the company will be showing the MS4640A series, which features wide frequency coverage of 70kHz to 70GHz, as well as high-accuracy time domain and wide dynamic range, making it the ideal tool to verify signal integrity designs. Its high-quality low-frequency S-parameter data maximise the changes of simulation convergence when using S-parameter derived models.

Anritsu will also showcase the ME7838A VectorStar 70kHz to 110GHz broadband VNA system as well.

The company will demonstrate how the ME7838A achieves measurements over extended time periods, as well as VectorStar's unique capability to make noise figure measurements to 110GHz. In addition, there will be a technology showing of a 70kHz to 145GHz system.

For conducting pulse measurements in radar applications, Anritsu will show the MG3690C RF/microwave signal generators. Producing 100ns leveled pulse widths with 10ns resolution, as well as the ability to generate single, doublet, triplet and quadruplet pulses, the MG3690C features the most comprehensive emulation and testing of high-performance narrow pulse radars. The measurement side will be covered by the ML2495A Wideband Peak Power Meter, which is ideal for measuring fast radar pulses due to its 65MHz video bandwidth.

Also on display will be the MS2830A Spectrum/Signal Analyser, which will be used to conduct millimeter wave measurements on a BridgeWave Communications 80GHz Wireless Ethernet Bridge. The MS2830A offers high dynamic range and low phase noise and supports direct coaxial input of signals up to 43GHz. Maximum frequency may be extended up to 325GHz via a range external harmonic mixers. A second test station will demonstrate the ease of performing VCO analysis using the sophisticated signal analysis tools of the MS2830A, which offers 14bit resolution and a maximum analysis bandwidth of 125MHz at frequencies up to 43GHz.

The company will also display its MS2720T Spectrum Master, MS2038C VNA Master, and S820D Site Master. The MS2720T provides continuous frequency coverage from 9kHz to 43GHz and offers performance for the most demanding measurements. The MS2038C is a compact handheld multi-function instrument that allows users to conduct S-parameter measurements and spectrum analysis in the field. Covering 2MHz to 20.0GHz, the S820C is a convenient microwave transmission line and antenna analyser for the installation, verification, troubleshooting, and repair of microwave communication systems.
