Planar 304/1 3.2 GHz Analyzer

The Planar 304/1 is a 3.2 GHz, full-size analyzer providing lab grade performance in a 19-inch chassis, including both 2-port configuration and direct receiver access. All devices are ATE compatible, rack mountable, and easy to program and share between multiple users. This full-size analyzer is designed for operation with any Windows PC or laptop. The free, lightweight VNA application connects to the 304/1 with a standard USB cable, creating a future-proof solution that significantly enhances ease of use compared with conventional instruments.

 

This full-size vector network analyzer with dimensions of 12.8″ x 16.3″ x 3.8″ (324 x 415 x 96 mm) and a weight of just 15.4 lbs (7 kg), can be used in the laboratory and in production testing, without requiring a lot of space. The VNA can be integrated into production test system via Manufacturing Test plug-in.

 

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.

Getting started with CMT VNAs

What Makes a Good VNA?

Everyone knows that a good VNA should have both excellent hardware performance and an easy to use software interface with useful post-processing capabilities. There are numerous VNAs in the market with different performance levels; some of them are economy grade, and others are truly laboratory test grade. What separates the two?
