Anritsu Introduces First VNAs to Specify 43.5 GHz Performance in K-Connector Environment to Address Emerging High-frequency Applications
Anritsu Company introduces a 43.5 GHz frequency option for its 2- and 4-port ShockLine™ MS46122B, MS46322B, MS46522B, and MS46524B vector network analyzers (VNAs) with guaranteed specifications using Anritsu’s Extended-K™ type connectors and components. The ShockLine family becomes the first VNA to support specified 43.5 GHz functionality in a K-connector environment, creating distinct cost-of-test and time-to-market advantages in high-frequency applications, including 5G, satellite, and signal integrity.
With the introduction of the Extended-K calibration kits and accessories, the option eliminates the need to use inconvenient adaptors or completely change the connector type. It provides design and manufacturing engineers with an efficient solution that adds the critical 3.5 GHz to a test environment for verification of products used in emerging applications.
Anritsu leveraged its design and characterization capabilities to extend the K-connector frequency performance. The additional 3.5 GHz of guaranteed coverage enables customers to remain in the K-connector environment rather than transition to more expensive and less robust 2.4 mm connectors, saving cost and increasing compatibility across test environments.
