LA19-13-04B – 8.5 GHz Four receiver Vector Network Analyser
The LA19-13-04B is a USB Vector Network Analyser providing professional grade performance in a compactand light package. As for the other LA instruments, it provides great flexibility including our unique Save on Trigger facility, mixer measurement capability, fast speed and wide dynamic range. It is useful for measuring a wide range of devices from 300 kHz to 8.5 GHz with variable test levels up to +10 dBm. The instrument uses unique and innovative techniques to achieve outstanding characteristics such as 0.006 dB rms trace noise at its highest operating bandwidth of 140 kHz together with measurement speeds of 190 µs per point for all four s-paramters. Now supporting TRL calibration with up to two reference lines.
The user interface control software provides many useful features including reference plane extension, de-embedding memory functions, limit lines, time-domain. In addition to a calibration kit editor it also provides utilities such as mixer measurements (conversion loss, match, port to port isolation and compression), signal generator (CW and frequency sweep modes) and measurement of power at the 1 dB gain compression point as a function of frequency are provided. Support for third party tools such as Matlab and LabView is by means of DLL libraries. The Matlab link installer below will allow Matlab to control the instrument and should only be run after installation of the instrument’s software.
The optional 3.5mm mechanical or electronic calibration kits use TRL referred calibration standards resulting in excellent VNA performance. Please see the data sheet for pricing information.
