LA19-13-03 (300kHz to 8GHz, Dynamic Range 120dB Vector Network Analyzer with Full S-Parameter Measurement)

Model Series: LA19-13-03 Series

About Product

The Vector Network Analyzer, VNA, is a form of RF network analyzer widely used for RF design applications. The LA LA19-13-03 Vector Network Analyzer is a PC-driven VNA suitable for measuring a wide range of devices from 0.3MHz to 8GHz. In addition to internal bias-Ts for biasing active devices, the internal couplers can be bypassed to test, for example, high power devices. The instrument is housed in a small, lightweight package making it very portable. The control software provides a wide range of features including memory functions, limit lines, de-embedding, time domain and reference plane extension. Utilities such as a comprehensive signal generator, measurement of power at the 1dB gain compression point with frequency and AM to PM conversion factor add versatility to the instrument. Demo Kit – SOLT is also an essential tool for vector network analyzing and is a must. See Demo Kit – SOLT from photo section.

Product Features

  • Wide measurement frequency range: 300kHz to 8GHz
  • Dynamic range: 120dB
  • Sweep time: 200µs
  • Full S-parameter test set including S11, S22, S21, S12
  • P1dB and AM-PM measurements
  • Signal Generator mode
  • Small footprint
  • Flexible architecture and outstanding value

Product Functions

  • Easy to follow user interface based on familiar Windows® form (See photo section)
    • Wide selection of sweep points: From 51 to 9001 with 10Hz resolution. -20dBm to +10dBm test level
    • Measurements can be saved in several formats to support most simulators
    • Low trace noise: Typically 0.001dBrms
    • Calibration and status can be easily saved and recalled
    • Multiple markers including delta, fixed, peak/min find modes provide precise readouts. Drag any marker using the mouse or dial in a precise frequency
    • 4 display channels/2 traces per channel allow all S-parameters to be displayed
    • Limit lines are easy to setup and support up to 8 segments
    • User-defined color scheme for the graphics display to suit individual preferences
    • Memory facility includes vector math functions
    • Time domain facility can be used for fault finding
  • Measurement enhancement includes averaging, smoothing, reference plane extension and de-embedding. The latter is particularly useful when evaluating devices mounted on test jigs, requiring interfacing networks to be removed from the measurements (See photo section)
  • Wide dynamic range covers many applications (See photo section)
  • Fast sweep as sweep times down to 200µs per point for single parameter measurements and 600µs for full error correction. At 20kHz bandwidth, full band sweep times are: 28ms for 51 points & 12-terms correction, 108ms for 201 points & 12-terms correction and 19ms for 101 points & S21 calibration
  • Accurate calibration with optional 3.5mm Calibration Kit
    • Each Calibration Kit is provided with the calibration data that closely characterizes the Load. Using this data significantly enhances the performance of the Calibration Kit (See photo section)
  • Easy to use calibration kit editor (See photo section)
  • Utilities provided include power at the 1dB gain compression point and AM to PM conversion. The LA19-13-03 can be configured as a synthesized signal source with a comprehensive range of facilities as shown overleaf (See photo section)
  • Comprehensive signal generator functionality (See photo section)
    • Signal generator function from 300kHz to 8GHz with the ability to set the amplitude from -20dBm to +10dBm and phase
    • Sweep generator function allows frequency sweep plans of up to 9001 points with dwell time settable from 26µs to 65500µs. Amplitude level sweep is also supported over a range of +10dBm to -20dBm. Both types of sweep modes can be synchronized to an external trigger
    • FM and AM modulation modes at 1kHz or 400Hz with up to 200kHz FM deviation and up to 90% AM modulation depth
    • Hop modes support frequency, phase and level hopping. In all cases dwell times can be set between 26µs and 65500µs
  • Flexible architecture for testing a power device (See photo section)
