Engineered for multiport VNA measurements

Components used in modern communications equipment, such as frontend smartphone and tablet PC frontend modules, must support ever more frequency bands and functions such as WLAN, Bluetooth® and GPS. This means the number of module RF ports is also growing, not least due to the use of various different components. The R&S®ZNB in combination with various switch matrices provides a comprehensive solution for complex measurements of modules with up to 48 ports. Rohde & Schwarz matrices deliver full crossbar measurements, enabling determination of all multiport DUT S-parameters.

Features & benefits

Easy configuration

Configure a multiport VNA with the push of a button

The R&S®ZNB controls switch matrices via LAN, USB or dedicated digital interface. A four-port VNA model allows up to two switch matrices to be combined for characterizing a DUT with up to 48 ports. Once a matrix is connected, the R&S®ZNB automatically detects the matrix and assigns test ports to immediately start measuring. Measurement parameters are directly selected and displayed on the user interface, eliminating the need for additional software.

RF characteristics

Fast measurements and excellent RF characteristics

Switch matrices from Rohde & Schwarz have very short switching times for enhanced measurement speed especially for sweeps of a small number of points. The compact design and state-of-the-art electronic switches in the R&S®ZN-Z84 and R&S®ZN-Z85 switch matrices have low insertion loss. Other highlights include good test port match and a high compression point for measurements on active DUTs with output power levels up to +20 dBm.

Calibration

Easy calibration with multiport calibration unit

Calibrating multiple ports is not easy, especially when it has to be done manually. Rohde & Schwarz has multiport calibration units where each port must only be connected once, making things much easier when up to 48 ports have to be calibrated. For even more convenience, the R&S®ZN-Z154 can be also be used to calibrate up to 24 ports at once.

Diverse application

Matrix solutions for every application

Rohde & Schwarz has switch matrices for many applications. Matrix models are available with up to 20 GHz and 24 outputs. Users can select the optimum configuration for low insertion loss, maximum accuracy and a high port number. A four-port R&S®ZNB can also be combined with a two input matrix (mixed configuration). The remaining two ports on the network analyzer can be used as regular VNA ports with the superior R&S®ZNB performance.
