- Buyers Guide
Anritsu Co. will be showcasing a wide range of industry leading Test & Measurement solutions at the European Microwave Week 2013, to be held in Nuremburg 8th to 10th October. The newly released MS4640B series of VectorStar vector network analyzers (VNAs) will be on display, together with the MS2830A Spectrum and Signal Analyzers, a range of signal generators, and the handheld RF analyzers, all of which demonstrate different areas of technical leadership. The products on show highlight the advanced measurement technologies developed by Anritsu, and its ability to develop features and user interfaces that uniquely meet the requirements of key application within the industry.
Featuring a new IF digitizer system, the MS4640B series offers the world's most advanced pulse measurement performance, complemented with the newly released PulseViewTM dedicated software suite. In addition, the DifferentialView™ software suite provides for analysis of components and devices in full differential measurement mode. Both PulseView™ and DifferentialView™ provide intuitive graphical user interfaces and enable users to instantly see the results as test parameters change. Designed for R&D and manufacturing environments, the VectorStar instruments feature a broad frequency range of 70 kHz to 70 GHz, fast measurement speed, superior dynamic range, and advanced time domain processing with up to 100,000 data points. It also offers users expandability, including frequency range upgrades to 140 GHz and higher, two-port-to-multiport upgrades, and linear-to-nonlinear measurement upgrades, so test systems can adapt to meet changing measurement requirements.
World leading technology innovation in the area of broadband millimeter measurements will be shown with the ME7838A Vector Measurement System. This unique technology from Anritsu is enabling significant new advances in measurement techniques due to the compact size, high performance and unique architecture of the new measurement modules, and is able to demonstrate power-controlled 2-port measurements up to 140 GHz.
Also on display will be the MS2830A Signal Analyzers. The best performing signal analyzer in its class, the MS2830A supports high-level measurement speeds and high RF performance at low cost to help raise R&D efficiency and productivity. The MS2830A analyzer has swept spectrum analysis, FFT signal analysis, and a precision digitizer function as standard. Offering a best-in-class level accuracy of ±0.5 dB across a 6 GHz span using innovative leveling and compensation techniques, the MS2830A is accurate enough for the most demanding R&D environments and fast enough for the factory floor.
The Spectrum Master™ MS2720T portable spectrum analyzer range features many innovative features, with advanced touch screen user interfaces, embedded mapping and interference-analysis features, and the most advanced receiver performance that gives the industry’s best technical specifications.
The PIM Master™ MW82119A Passive Inter Modulation (PIM) analyzer is the world's first high power battery operated field PIM tester, featuring the unique "Distance-to-PIM" (DTP) capability that provides the most accurate method to locate sources of PIM at a cell site.
These lightweight, easy-to-operate, durable "Master" series of analyzers are the instruments of choice for engineers and technicians responsible for the deployment, installation, and maintenance of wireless networks.
