With the increase of wireless and connected devices there is a rapidly expanding need for component testing to ensure the optimal performance of these devices. The resources below are designed for people without a background in VNAs. This content will provide an introductory understanding of testing wireless or IoT devices for R&D, development, and production.
How can I make a measurement with a USB vector network analyzer remotely from the operating computer?
We often see this question from our VNA users and want to make sure they can and the measurements are still accurate. Using the USB connection to a 6.5 GHz vector network analyzer is extended to 300 feet, well past the normal 15-foot maximum. For the case where the VNA must be separated from the host computer by a long-distance, this is an easy solution.
