A wide variety of engineering disciplines use Vector Network Analyzers (or VNAs). Engineers involved in product development use VNAs at numerous stages in the design process. Component designers use VNAs to verify performance. System designers use VNAs to verify that system performance meets their subsystem and system specs. No matter the discipline, engineers turn to VNAs when they need to measure the inherent RF characteristics of passive or active devices.
We’ve put Tek’s TTR500 up against another industry VNA to see how well it performs. Check out the video below. Or if you want to learn more about Tektronix’ VNAs including the newest addition, visit www.tek.com/vna/ttr500.
