Motivation
R&S® ZVA
1 Motivation
Welcome to this introductory video show about the R&S® ZVA family of network analyzers. Network analysis is sometimes considered to be cumbersome and difficult to
understand, a very offputting reputation for newcomers to network analyzers. To help
you look at network analyzers in a different light, we have created this video series. We
have intentionally refrained from explaining any theory in depth. Rather, we want to
show you how to operate our analyzers for simple and useful applications.
As well as just watching this video show, you can also use it as a guide and try yourself. All the operational steps shown only require a standard RF power amplifier which
should be available in almost every lab. The procedures shown in this video are
designed to be independent from each other. So you can choose whether you go
through the complete show from the beginning to the end, or just pick out the procedures of special interest to you. So, before we get properly started, we hope you enjoy
this video show and much success in becoming familiar with network analysis in general, and our R&S products in particular. Start now with selecting and watching one of
the videos.
