The Anritsu MS46524A is a family of 4-port RF ShockLine™ Vector Network Analyzers with frequency range from 10 MHz to 4.5/7 GHz. The MS46524A are a low cost, 4-port VNAs packaged in a compact and rugged 2U chassis capable of measuring 16 single-ended and mixed-mode S-parameters. Additionally, time domain measurements are available as an option for simple signal integrity testing on high-speed digital boards. With 77 microseconds per point sweep speed, and better than 110 dB dynamic range, these VNAs are ideal for testing passive multi-port and differential devices to 7 GHz.
ShockLine™ VNAs integrate easily into rack-mount test systems due to small size and remote programmability. They support SCPI command programming and software drivers for the most common programming environments. The whole family uses industry standard LAN communications for remote control. ShockLine™ VNAs provide a powerful graphical user interface for manual testing of devices. The full-featured user interface is enabled by attaching a (user-supplied) touchscreen monitor, keyboard, and mouse.
