Key facts

  • Multiport measurements, avoiding any time loss due to matrix control
  • Flexible configuration for balanced and singe-ended measurements
  • True differential measurements and coherent signal generation
  • Enhanced performance by parallel measurements on several DUTs
  • Multichannel receiver with simultaneous sampling (phased array antennas)
  • 3 year warranty extension

True Multiport Measurements

The R&S®ZVT8/R&S®ZVT20 from Rohde & Schwarz is the first true eight-port/six-port vector network analyzer with a frequency range from 300 kHz to 8 GHz/10 MHz to 20 GHz. The R&S®ZVT8 contains up to four internal generators and up to 16 receivers. The R&S®ZVT20 includes up to three internal generators and up to 12 receivers. This unique concept with one generator per two test ports makes the R&S®ZVT ideal for intermodulation measurements, even on mixers, (true) differential balanced measurements, multireceiver measurements with antennas or high throughput and efficiency in production.

Features & benefits

True Multiport Analyzer with high-end performance

The R&S®ZVT features the same comprehensive functionality and range of options as the R&S®ZVA. Plus, it offers a larger number of ports, i.e. generators and receivers. All applications described for the R&S®ZVA also apply to the R&S®ZVT. The instrument offers excellent network analyzer characteristics and comprehensive measurement capabilities for two- to eight-port applications, irrespective of the number of test ports.

Extremely fast an accurate measurements on multiport DUTs

  • No delay caused by switch matrix control
  • Greater stability, reproducibility, and flexibility
  • Measurements on balanced DUTs
  • Virtual differential measurement mode (sequential stimulation of single-ended ports, standard mode)
  • True differential measurement mode: With eight test ports (four internal sources), up to four true differential signals can be generated and applied to the DUT ports simultaneously

Unique performance for measurements on amplifiers, mixers, receivers, frontends

  • Arbitrary frequency and power settings for internal generators and receivers as well as external generators
  • Measurement of conversion loss, return loss, leakage, etc., of mixers
  • Intermodulation and hot S-parameter measurements on amplifiers
  • Intermodulation measurements on mixers by means of a single instrument
  • Measurements on double-converting DUTs, with the RF, LO1, and LO2 signals delivered by a single unit

Pulsed measurements on amplfifiers, mixers, frontends, etc.

  • Frequency- and power-swept point-in-pulse measurements
  • Pulse profile measurements with 12.5 ns resolution on pulses, double pulses and pulse trains with a width smaller than 50 ns; recording time up to 3 ms

Multichannel receiver architecture

  • Direct access to up to 16 channels by means of direct generator/receiver access option
  • Parallel, synchronous sampling of channels, e.g. for phase measurements on antenna arrays

Ideal for use in production

  • Parallel measurements on several DUTs lead to increased throughput in production
  • No compromise in RF performance
  • Reduced instrumentation effort and cost efficiency
