Anritsu: High-Frequency Design Software in Network Analyzer
Embedded microwave design software.
El Segundo, CA — AWR, the innovation leader in high-frequency electronic design automation (EDA), and Anritsu Company, a global provider of test and measurement solutions, has announced AWR Connected for Anritsu, which makes Microwave Office high-frequency design software a standard component of Anritsu's new VectorStar MS4640A vector network analyzer (VNA).

AWR Connected for Anritsu reportedly makes the MS4640A the first microwave instrument to physically integrate a full suite of design tools within its firmware. Microwave Office software provides all the tools necessary for high-frequency IC, printed circuit board, and module design, including linear circuit simulators,

electromagnetic (EM) analysis tools, and integrated schematic and layout — without leaving the measurement environment.

The VectorStar MS4640A delivers best-in-class frequency coverage of 70kHz to 70GHz, dynamic range of 100dB at 70GHz, and measurement speed of 20ms/point, establishing a new performance benchmark for S-parameter measurements on RF, microwave, and millimeter-wave devices. VectorStar brings superior performance to traditional VNA markets, including aerospace/defense, satellite, commercial microwave communications, materials measurement, and advanced research.

Microwave Office is the industry's fastest-growing RF and microwave design platform, and integrates the most powerful, innovative tools available to allow users to create designs in the shortest time with the greatest flexibility. The product provides design capture and synthesis, simulation, optimization, layout, extraction, and verification.
