An Introduction to the VNA and Vector Network Analysis

November 10, 2023

What you’ll learn:

  • What does a VNA measure?
  • What can one do with the measured data?
  • What devices are measured with a VNA?

Most design engineers are familiar with tools of the trade such as voltmeters, oscilloscopes, signal generators, and spectrum analyzers. Some may not have had the opportunity to use a vector network analyzer (VNA). It’s the intent of this article to introduce VNA measurement and present a few typical applications.
