R&S®ZVA Vector Network Analyzers - Video

Level-controlled passive intermodulation (PIM) measurements presented at EuMW 2013

Rohde & Schwarz demonstrated fast and accurate passive intermodulation (PIM) testing of duplex filters at the European Microwave Week 2013 in Nuremberg. The four-port R&S®ZVA vector network analyzer with its two internal sources and automatic level control (ALC), together with the R&S®BBA150 broadband amplifiers, provides a unique solution for extremely fast PIM measurements. ALC makes it possible to overcome the issues of thermal and power settling times as well as amplifier output power variation reducing test time from minutes to typically less than a second per sweep.
