OML introduces a low power series for VNA frequency extension modules

December 3, 2014

OML introduces a low power series for its VNA frequency extension modules. Providing a low power solution; with a max output power of 0 dBm; which expands your existing Vector Network Analyzer (VNA) capabilities so you can conduct millimeter wave S-parameter measurements.  Connect to your existing network analyzer to display two port S-parameters: S11, S21, S12and S22.  Four architectures are available: 1-port, scalar 2-port, 1-path/2 port and fully reversing 2-port.

The low power VNA series offers you everything our original VNA series offers including the option –A, -RLA, -LOA and now –IMD. Option A adds manual adjustable attenuator (0 to 25 dB) to the RF path, option RLA adds an amplifier (15 dB gain) in RF & LO paths for drive input of -5 dBm and option LOA adds an amplifier (15 dB gain) in LO path for drive input of -5 dBm.  The IMD, intermodulation distortion measurement, is an industry standard technique revealing the linearity of an amplifier using a two-tone measurement.

This low power series is currently available in waveguide bands from 50 GHz to 110 GHz; VxxVNA2-LP.  OML's innovative millimeter wave frequency extension products can help you with your testing in the emerging application areas of radio astronomy, communication, imaging, biomedical and more.
