PC-Controlled VNA Sets Price Benchmark

The TTR500 Series USB vector network analyzer (VNA) is trumpeted as having a 40% lower cost than alternatives capable of matching its 122-dB dynamic range and 6-GHz frequency range. The series lowers the barrier to entry and features an easy-to-use user interface for common tasks. Also, its small, compact form factor eliminates the need to roll around a shared VNA. The TTR500 Series offers a full two-port, two-path S-parameter VNA for applications like measuring passive/active components, antennas and matching networks, RF modules, test cables, adapters and more. It features a 100 kHz to 6 GHz frequency range, 122 dB dynamic range, less than 0.008 dB trace noise, and -50 to +7 dBm output power, in a compact package weighing less than 4 pounds. Other features include an integrated bias tee that is accessible on both ports and allows for active devices, such as amplifiers, to be DC biased. The bias tee allows for 0 to ± 24 V, and 0 to 200 mA on both ports for active devices. The TTR500 Series vector network analyzer is available now and pricing starts at $9,000 for a 3-GHz instrument and $12,000 for a 6-GHz instrument. To learn more, go to http://www.tek.com/TTR500.
