The Vector Network Analyzer, VNA, is a form of RF network analyzer widely used for RF design applications. The LA LA19-13-04 Vector Network Analyzer is a USB controlled, computer-driven VNA suitable for measuring a wide range of devices from 0.3MHz to 6GHz. LA19-13-04 uses a four receiver architecture allowing support for 8 error terms calibration techniques as well as traditional 12 error terms correction. 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, data compare (compares measured data with reference data loaded from disk), network de-embedding, limit lines, time domain and reference plane extension. Measuring parameters include S11, S22, S21, S12, P1dB gain compression measurement, AM to PM conversion measurement and a signal generator function able to operate in CW or frequency sweep modes. Demo Kit – SOLT is also an essential tool for vector network analyzing and is a must. See Demo Kit – SOLT from photo section.
