Benefits

  • 6 or 8.5 GHz vector network analyzer, up to 124 dB dynamic range.
  • High accuracy and high speed, up to 5500 dual-port S-parameters per second.
  • Affordable, compact, portable and rugged USB 2.0 modular device.

PicoVNA Series VNA/Vector Network Analyzers up to 6 or 8.5 GHz

Making vector network analysis accessible. The PicoVNA-106 and PicoVNA-108 are professional USB-controlled, laboratory grade vector network instruments of unprecedented performance, portability and affordability. Despite their small size and low cost, the instruments boast a "Quad-RX" four-receiver architecture to eliminate the uncorrectable errors, delays and fragility of three-receiver designs with internal transfer switches. The devices offer exceptional dynamic ranges of 124 dB (PicoVNA-108) or 118 dB (PicoVNA-108) and only 0.005 dB RMS trace noise at its maximum operating bandwidth of 140 kHz. The cost is so low that the devices could even be used as cost-effective high-dynamic-range scalar network analyzers! They are affordable in the classroom, small business and even amateur workshop, yet capable in the microwave expert's laboratory.

  • Professional and portable performance at low cost.
  • 300 kHz to 6 or 8.5 GHz operation.
  • High speed, up to 5500 dual-port S-parameters per second; >10,000 S11 + S21 per second.
  • Quad RX four-receiver architecture for best accuracy.
  • Up to 124 dB dynamic range at 10 Hz bandwidth.
  • 0.005 dB RMS trace noise at maximum bandwidth of 140 kHz.
  • Half-rack, small-footprint, lightweight package.
  • Reference plane offsetting and de-embedding.
  • Tabular and graphic print and save formats, including Touchstone.
  • Save on trigger for high-speed device profiling (PicoVNA-108)
  • Dual-frequency mixer measurements with VSWR correction (PicoVNA-108).
  • P1dB, AM to PM, and stand-alone signal generator utilities.
  • Guided 8/12-term and absolute power calibration processes.
    6 calibration modes, including unknown through and connected DUT isolation.
    Calibration and check standards with data guarantee confident measurements.
