Brief Description

The configurable R&S®ZVAX‑TRM extension unit is used together with an R&S®ZVA / R&S®ZVT (the R&S®ZVAX-TRM24/40/50/67 can be combined with any R&S®ZVA8/24/40/50/67 or R&S®ZVT8/20 network analyzer; the extension unit is supplied as standard with the RF interconnection cables for the corresponding R&S®ZVA24/40/50/67 model) network analyzer to provide signal conditioning for demanding measurements on active DUTs. For example, it allows measurements on pulsed signals or noise figure measurements on transmit/ receive (T/R) modules. Together with an R&S®ZVA network analyzer, the R&S®ZVAX‑TRM provides costomized test sets for applications up to 24/40/50/67 GHz (restrictions on some options for the 67 GHz model).

Features & Benefits

  • Configurable test system for characterizing T/R modules
    • R&S®ZVAX-TRM decouples signal conditioning from the network analyzer
    • Fewer options needed for the network analyzer itself, reduced investment costs
    • Basic configuration supports high-power two-port measurements up to +43 dBm
    • Test set can be expanded with options
    • Signal access points in the R&S®ZVAX-TRM for integrating external components and instruments
  • Excellent performance data for measurements on T/R modules
    • Measure a T/R module’s characteristics in both directions
    • E.g. bidirectional pulse measurements
    • High output power levels even with a fully configured R&S®ZVAX-TRM
  • Customized configuration
    • R&S®ZVAX‑TRM base unit
    • R&S®ZVAXxxB712/B73 pulse modulators
    • R&S®ZVAXxxB112/B134 output amplifiers
    • R&S®ZVAXxxB213/B224 combiners
    • R&S®ZVAXxxB31/B32 Pre-amplifier, receiver path 1/2
  • Typical system configurations
    • Measurements on T/R modules with combined transmit/ receive ports
    • Measurements on T/R modules with an input circulator (three ports)
    • High-power and hot S22 measurements
