M5180 2-Port 18 GHz Analyzer

The M5180 is a 2-port, 18 GHz Vector Network Analyzer that delivers metrology-grade performance in a more economical package that excludes a number of advanced features:

  • Vector Mixer Calibration
  • TRL Calibration
  • Frequency Offset
  • Time Domain
  • Gating

VNAs and ACMs are delivered with factory calibration certificates containing no data. The add-on option for ISO17025/Z540-1 Accredited, Traceable Calibration Certificate and Uncertainties is available and needs to be specified at time of order.

 

M5180 VNA includes an RF measurement module and S2 Windows or Linux operating system on a PC, laptop, tablet, or x86 board computer connecting to the measurement hardware via USB interface. S2 software can be installed on multiple computers, making it easy to share the use of the analyzer measurement module.

  • - Frequency range: 300 kHz to 18 GHz
  • - Measured parameters: S11, S21, S12, S22
  • - Sweep types: linear frequency, log frequency, segment, power sweep
  • - Dynamic range: 130 dB
  • - Measurement speed: 30 µs
  • - Impedance: 50 Ohm

Applications of the M5180 include RF component design and testing, on-wafer probing, field testing, insertion loss measurement, antenna matching, quality control, material measurements, and many others.
