S5065 2-Port 6.5 GHz Analyzer

The S5065 Vector Network Analyzer delivers lab grade performance in a compact package, with all the features engineers have come to expect included standard in our software.


If a higher frequency is required for testing, the S5065 may be upgraded for a fee, to function like a S5085. This portable 1.7 kg/60 oz. vector network analyzer can be battery powered and used in the field, in the laboratory, and in production testing. The VNA can be integrated into a production test system via Manufacturing Test plug-in.


S5065 VNA includes an RF measurement module and S2 software application which runs on a Windows PC, laptop, or tablet, 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.


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: 9 kHz to 6.5 GHz
  • - Measured parameters: S11, S12, S21, S22
  • - Sweep types: Linear frequency, log frequency, segment, power sweep
  • - Dynamic range: 128 dB
  • - Measurement speed: 70 µs
  • - Impedance: 50 Ohm

Applications of the S5065 include RF component design and testing, on-wafer probing, field testing, insertion loss measurement, distance to fault measurements, antenna matching, quality control, material measurements, and many others.

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?
