Vector Network Testers Add Direct Receiver Access Models

The Scorpion family of Vector Network Measurement Systems (VNMS) has been expanded to now include MS462xC Direct Receiver Access (DRA) models. The MS462xC VNMS offer the benefits of the Scorpion platform plus the ability to use an external test set. The new system allows increased flexibility in testing amplifiers not conveniently handled with the MS462xB VNMS. Also, the Scorpion DRA VNMS' ability to measure nonlinear effects in mixers, enhanced antenna measurements over the GPIB, and ability to measure high power amps make it a complete high-performance measurement solution. The MS4622C provides measurement capabilities from 10 MHz to 3 GHz and the MS4623C provides the same measurement capabilities from 10 MHz to 6 GHz. Both can include a second synthesizer. Pricing for the MS4622C and the MS423C is $28,500 and $33,500, respectively.
