Series Anritsu MS46524B - these are the most functional (in the ShockLine economy line) vector electrical circuit analyzers. They can measure all 16 S-parameters of 4-port devices, but can also be used successfully to characterize 3-port, 2-port, and single-port devices. Depending on the modification, the upper operating range is 8.5 GHz, 20 GHz or 43.5 GHz. Only the series has better characteristics than the MS46524B Vector Star.
These analyzers are excellent for measuring 3-port, 4-port passive devices and low gain active devices. For operation with high gain multiport active devices, the series is better suited. Vector Star, since it may contain internal attenuators, and inexpensive series are better suited for working with 2-port and single-port devices, for example MS46122A.
Anritsu MS46524B series vector analyzers are based on the patented ShockLine VNA-on-chip technology, in which all the main elements of the analyzer are placed in one micromodule, which allows to significantly simplify and make the internal structure of the device more compact, which in turn significantly reduces cost and increases accuracy. measurements, especially at high frequencies.

The Anritsu MS46524B series analyzers are designed for medium to high-level tasks that need to be addressed in the design, manufacture and operation of multiport microwave devices in the range up to 43.5 GHz. This series is distinguished by high measurement accuracy and excellent dynamic range (up to 140 dB). The series also provides good measurement speed (30 µs per point) and high frequency resolution: each graph can contain up to 20,001 points.
In addition to high-precision measurement units, the MS46524B analyzers house a fast control computer based on an Intel Core i5 processor. All you need to work is to connect an external monitor, keyboard and mouse. In addition, the MS46524B analyzers can be remotely controlled from any 64-bit Windows PC using the powerful free Anritsu ShockLine software. At the same time, 100M Ethernet or 1G Ethernet can be used as a connection interface.
MS46524B vector network analyzers can also be integrated into automated measuring systems and controlled using programs written directly by the user. A detailed programmer's guide can be downloaded below on this page in the section Documentation. Also, these analyzers can be used in automated systems using IVI-C driver components in the most popular application development environments such as LabVIEW, LabWindows, MATLAB, C# and .NET.
Auto Calibration of Anritsu MS46524B Vector Network Analyzers
Any network analyzer must be calibrated before operation. This procedure can be performed manually, using a set of discrete measures, or automatically. Manual calibration takes a long time and requires repeated connection and disconnection of reference measures. Automatic calibration is much faster and minimizes operator errors.
Anritsu produces two models of four-port calibration modules: the MN25408A model with a frequency range of 300 kHz - 8.5 GHz and the model MN25418A with a frequency range of 300 kHz - 20 GHz. Inside the module there is a set of reference standards and high-frequency switches that switch these standards during the calibration process in accordance with commands received from the calibrated vector analyzer via the USB interface.
The MN25408A (up to 8.5 GHz) has four N(f) connectors, and the MN25418A (up to 20 GHz) has four K(f) connectors. The appearance of these modules is shown in the photo below. To connect the vector network analyzer to the autocalibration module and further to the measurement object, it is recommended to use phase-stable cables of type 15NN50-1.0B with connectors N(m)-N(m) or type 15KKF50-1.0A with connectors K(m)-K(f) .
Design of Anritsu MS46524B 4-port vector network analyzers
Structurally, the Anritsu MS46524B series network analyzers are designed as a desktop laboratory instrument. When ordered with option MS46524B-001, the analyzer can be mounted in a standard rack. In this case, the height of the case is 3U. There are six USB 2.0 ports on the front panel of the analyzer for connecting a keyboard, mouse, auto-calibration module and flash drives.
At the bottom of the front panel are four high-frequency measurement ports. The analyzer model MS46524B-010 with a frequency range up to 8.5 GHz (which is shown in the photo below) uses N(f) type connectors to connect to the measurement object. Models MS46524B-020 (up to 20 GHz) and MS46524B-040 (up to 43.5 GHz) use reinforced K(m) connectors to connect to the measurement object.
In the model up to 8.5 GHz, it is possible to install the MS46524B-051 option, which allows direct access to the internal blocks of the network analyzer, which can be useful in some cases. The photo below shows 16 black plugs, in place of which, when ordering option MS46524B-051, additional connectors will appear.
The rear panel of the Anritsu MS46524B network analyzers contains four USB 3.0 connectors, HDMI and Display Port connectors for connecting an external display, two Gigabit Ethernet connectors for connecting the analyzer to a network for remote control, as well as audio input and output. Also on the rear panel are two BNC connectors for connecting an external 10 MHz reference and accessing an internal 10 MHz reference. Next to them are two BNC connectors for triggering on an external source signal (Trigger In) and for signaling the start of an internal measurement (Trigger Out).
In the model up to 8.5 GHz, it is possible to install the MS46524B-061 option, which allows you to apply a constant voltage from an external source to the center conductor of each measurement port. The photo below shows 4 silver plugs, in place of which, when ordering the MS46524B-061 option, additional BNC connectors will appear.
