Planar 808/1 8 GHz Analyzer

The Planar 808/1 is an 8 GHz, full-size analyzer providing lab grade performance in a 19-inch chassis, including both 4-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 or Linux operating system on a PC, laptop, or tablet, or x86 board computer. The free, lightweight VNA application connects to the 808/1 with a standard USB cable, creating a future-proof solution that significantly enhances ease of use compared with conventional instruments.

 

The 808 provides a wide variety of analysis capabilities, including time-domain with gating and automatic port extension, at no additional cost. With two independent signal sources, the 808 is ideal for mixer and converter measurements. The 808/1 software supports fixture simulation for a variety of single ended and balanced topologies, enabling tests of differential devices without an external balun.

 

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 19.8 lbs (9 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.

  • - Frequency range: 100 kHz to 8 GHz
  • - Measured parameters: S11 through S44
  • - Sweep types: Linear frequency, log frequency, segment, power sweep
  • - Dynamic range: 135 dB
