Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced a series of one-slot PXI vector network analyzers that cover 300 kHz up to 26.5 GHz. The new analyzers offer the best PXI VNA performance on key specifications such as speed, trace noise, stability and dynamic range. This enables the PXI VNAs to perform fast, accurate measurements and reduce the cost-of-test by enabling simultaneous characterization of many devices – two-port or multi-port – using a single PXI chassis.
When space is at a premium, full two-port VNA capability with S-parameters can be added to an existing system that has just one open slot. To address applications such as high-volume device testing and highly complex on-wafer testing, a single chassis can be loaded with up to sixteen PXI VNA modules for use as either multiple two-port VNAs, a single 32-port VNA, or any combination in between.
Six models are available, providing frequency coverage from 300 kHz to 4, 6.5, 9, 14, 20 or 26.5 GHz. Currently, competing PXI VNA products reach only 8.5 GHz, occupy two or three slots, and cost significantly more than Keysight’s 9-GHz model.
