364X Series VNA Extension Module

364X series VNA extension module is a top-level VNA frequency extender in measuring speed, dynamic range and measuring stability. For hardware, it adopts new design concept and technical solution, which significantly enhance the key performance indexes of the instrument. As for the software, the frequency extending system is based on Windows OS, which greatly improves the interconnectivity and practicability of the instrument.

The S parameter test module together with a VNA and a millimeter frequency controller is used to build a vector network measurement system which can realize flexible configuration of 5mm, 3mm, 2mm, 1mm frequency band and an even higher frequency band, and the highest frequency can cover 500GHz. With advantages of concise system configuration, user-friendly interface, high test precision etc., it can realize the full S-parameters measurement of the millimeter-wavnetwork under test.
