When your system includes network analysis and requires a custom VNA, our engineers will work with you to find the right solution:
We have designed our analyzers for ease of customization, so we can deliver a high performing custom VNA solution at a lower cost than any other provider. Custom product quantities are available in as little as single unit volumes, up to thousands of units per year.
With our custom VNA your ATE works as one software system running on a single computer. We can customize the analyzer module to fit in your system, provide extra frequency range coverage as compared to our standard VNA models should you need it in your specific application or characterize the expected performance outside the frequency limits of our standard VNAs
Our engineers will work as an extension of your team. We can write custom test software and help with integrated RF system testing. We can design and provide an RF switching network specific to your requirements; electro-mechanical, solid-state, or PIN diode-based. If the S-parameter measurement fixture involves challenging conditions for repeatability and accuracy we can assist with measurement uncertainty analysis. Our team includes domain knowledge experts, familiar with S-parameter measurement applications from DC to 1 THz.
When the VNA needs to be mounted inside the test set, we can develop a module that meets your physical and performance specifications. This custom cable and antenna analyzer module can be produced to your size and performance specifications.
For Compass Technology Group, we developed an 18 GHz 1-port custom VNA for measuring the performance of microwave materials without test cables. John W. Schultz, PhD discusses this approach in a white paper developed with the Air Force Research Labratory.
