R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyser wins Electronics Industry Award

Rohde & Schwarz announces awards success with touch-operated analyzer

The R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyzer is named the Test, Measurement & Inspection product of the year at the Electronics Industry Awards.

Fleet, UK, 13th October 2020 — Rohde & Schwarz today announced its R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyzer, the world’s first purely touch-display operated analyzer, has been recognised in the Electronics Industry Awards. In the third year of ceremony, hosted online for the first time, the Rohde & Schwarz analyzer took home an award in the Test, Measurement & Inspection Product of the Year category. This category recognises a test, measurement and inspection product that has made a significant impact on the market and shows exceptional performance and innovation.

Commenting on the award, Jamie Lunn, Product Manager Network Analysis at Rohde & Schwarz said, “We are delighted that our product has received prestigious success at the Electronics Industry Awards. The R&S ZNA represents a new generation of high-end vector network analyzers which combine outstanding RF performances with easy measurement setup. This award recognises the technological innovation that Rohde & Schwarz strives for and marks a significant achievement for us.”

The R&S ZNA Vector Network Analyzer provides a universal test platform for characterising active and passive devices under test. It offers four internal, phase-coherent sources, allowing independent control of the signal’s frequency at each port as well as phase measurements on mixers. It provides two internal LO sources, a true multichannel receiver architecture, pulse generators and modulators, an internal combiner and comprehensive trigger and synchronization capabilities.

The R&S ZNA offers an outstanding dynamic range of up to 170 dB (typ. with options) , essential for measurements on high-rejection filters. Across the aerospace and defence sector, the analyzer is suited not only to active and passive components, but also transmitter/receiver modules, converter and satellite subsystems. It can be used in antenna measurement systems, as well as for antenna characterization.

The R&S ZNA is the world’s first purely touch-operated vector network analyzer, using a 12.1″ touchscreen as the main display and a 7″ touchscreen instead of a hardkey panel. Together with the DUT-centric approach, the second touchscreen provides a seamless user experience.

The new R&S ZNA26 and R&S ZNA43 high-end vector network analyzers are now available from Rohde & Schwarz.
