Rohde & Schwarz release first true multiport vector network analyser up to 20 GHz

Published: 10th August 2016

Rohde & Schwarz have recently introduced the ZNBT20 - the first true multiport vector network analyser in the microwave range with up to 16 integrated test ports. The unique hardware architecture from the ZNBT8 has been extended to 20 GHz, allowing you to characterize multiple devices under test in parallel and increase throughput tremendously.

With the introduction of the ZNBT20, Rohde & Schwarz have expanded the frequency range of the ZNBT up to 20 GHz. With a starting frequency of 100 kHz and up to 16 integrated test ports, it offers fast sweep times and excellent RF performance. The ZNBT20 It is a true multiport vector network analyser, driving all ports in parallel without the need for internal switching. Parallel measurements increase throughput tremendously, which is especially important for production applications.

The high number of ports is relevant for the production of both active and passive multiport components such as frontend modules for multiband mobile phones or high-speed data cables. In addition, signal integrity tests can be performed for high-speed transmission standards, especially when combined with the R&S ZNBT-K20 option for extended time domain analysis, which allows eye diagrams, rise time and skew to be displayed on the R&S ZNBT.

The new R&S ZNBT20 multiport vector network analyser is now available from MCS Test Equipment.
