Noise Figure Measurements with VectorStar


This video demonstrates the capability of the VectorStar ME7838A system in providing accurate mmwave noise figure measurements from 54 to 125 GHz using the Anritsu SM6609 receiver. The VectorStar noise figure option provides the widest frequency coverage noise figure measurements from a vector network analyzer covering 70 kHz to 125 GHz. The VectorStar platform operates from 70 kHz to the THz region providing the widest frequency sweep available in the industry. The SM6609 receiver eliminates the input coupler providing direct access to the Nonlinear Transmission Line sampler thereby optimizing receiver noise figure and optimizing mmwave noise figure measurements for best accuracy.
