Technological progress in RF and microwave engineering means that network analyzers in development and produc tion continuously have to meet new demands for ease of operation, flexibility and performance.

With its R&S®ZVA family of vector network analyzers,

Rohde & Schwarz is taking a future-oriented approach. The analyzers offer a perfect balance between measurement speed, dynamic range, flexibility and precision, making them ideal for present and future measurement tasks.

Rohde & Schwarz previously set standards in RF and

microwave measurements with its R&S®ZVR family of

network analyzers, and now continues this success with the R&S®ZVA. The fundamental mixing concept up to

24 GHz employed by the analyzer‘s receivers ensures high sensitivity and a wide dynamic range. Extremely fast synthesizers make for short measurement times.

Its excellent characteristics, new functionality, sophisticated GUI, and extremely high flexibility make the R&S®ZVA an indispensable tool for demanding measurement tasks in labs and production.

Test set design for enhanced performance and

flexibility

The test set includes a number of special design features.

There is one measurement channel and one reference channel for each test port, an RF switch in each generator path, and a generator for each pair of test ports. The

R&S®ZVA67 even has a generator for each test port. This makes the R&S®ZVA an analyzer of unprecedented perfor mance and functionality, which is especially true for the four-port model:

signals for fast mixer or intermodulation measurements

Parallel signal output and measurement at the test ports for measuring two or more DUTs simultaneously

❙ Direct generator/receiver access option to connect

external test setups, e.g. power amplifiers, or use as a multichannel receiver, e.g. for antenna measurements

Design and operating principle of the

R&S®ZVA110

The R&S®ZVA110 consists of an R&S®ZVA67 four-port base unit that is enhanced by two R&S®ZVA-Z110E W-band converters with electronic attenuator and diplexer.

The overall system has two test ports with 1 mm connectors located on the diplexer outputs.

In the frequency range from 10 MHz to 67 GHz, the test signal will be generated in the R&S®ZVA67 four-port network analyzer and routed to the 1 mm test ports via

diplexers. From 67 GHz to 110 GHz, the diplexers switch over and the test signal is routed to the test port via the converters and diplexers.

A bias signal can also be fed to the active components via the diplexers.

The R&S®ZVA-Z110E converters with electronic attenuators allow both level sweeping with compression point measurement and level calibration at the input of the

amplifier under test.

High measurement throughput

Dynamic range between test ports at 10 Hz IF bandwidth.

Switching between setups at the click of a mouse.

Wide dynamic range for fast and accurate

measurements

The R&S®ZVA sets new standards in measurement speed.

Its large IF bandwidths and fast synthesizers combine to yield short measurement times and thus high throughput in manual adjustments and automated production

sequences. The measurement time per test point is less than 3.5 µs in the CW mode; a frequency sweep over

200 test points takes less than 5 ms.

Due to the analyzer‘s wide dynamic range and low phase noise, this speed advantage does not compromise measurement accuracy.

Fast switching between instrument setups

When analyzing two or more DUTs, you no longer have to load the required instrument setups from the hard disk one after the other. Once called, setups remain available in

RAM, including calculated data, e.g. calibration values ob tained by interpolation. You can therefore switch between setups virtually without delay, i.e. in less than 10 ms by

remote control. With conventional instruments, recalling setups can take up to one second. Each setup is represented by a separate measurement window.

This design feature also makes it easier to handle large volumes of measured data. If a display area becomes too

“ crowded“, data can easily be distributed to other windows (setups). You can switch between windows by using the mouse or pressing a key.

Segmented sweep for optimized speed, accuracy and dynamic range

The segmented sweep function allows you to divide a sweep into a virtually unlimited number of segments.

Sweep parameters such as test point spacing, measurement bandwidth and generator power can be defined separately for each segment and accurately matched to the

DUT characteristic. Measurement speed and accuracy can thus be further optimized.

Parallel measurements – up to four times faster

In addition to the standard operating mode, the concept of the R&S®ZVA allows test ports to be organized in groups, e.g. in two groups of two ports each or in four groups of one port each. Measurements are carried out on the vari ous groups simultaneously, provided the test parameters are identical for each group. This means that measuring two or more DUTs in the parallel mode takes no more time than measuring a single DUT in the standard mode. Com pared to sequential measurements, measurement speed will therefore double when measuring two two-port DUTs in parallel and quadruple when measuring four one-port

DUTs in parallel.

ZVA_bro_en_5213-5680-12_v1000_neu.indd 6 09.08.2012 17:55:30

Data transfer simultaneously with sweep

Since trace data is transferred via the IEC/IEEE bus or LAN at the same time measured data is being captured, data transfer time on the R&S®ZVA is insignificant.

Channel bits and user port – high-speed control of external devices

To speed up automatic test cycles even further, a special port for trigger I/O signals and status indication is provided on the rear panel. These signals directly synchronize ex ternal devices of a test setup or the settings of a DUT with the internal measurement sequences of the R&S®ZVA.

No remote control sequences are required, which saves

execution time. The pins of the USER CONTROL port also provide information on the net time required for measuring one point, one sweep or carrying out a partial measurement. This makes it easy to determine net measurement times and optimize synchronization.

Ergonomic user interface

Equation editor.

State-of-the-art DUTs feature a steadily increasing number of complex functions and ports, which also places higher demands on the instrument‘s display capabilities. The

¸ZVA provides highly versatile functions for displaying results in a straightforward manner.

Virtually unlimited number of channels and traces

Over 100 traces can be combined in any manner within the individual diagrams and assigned to over 100 differ ent channels. DUTs can thus be measured using a wide variety of stimulus conditions, and all parameters of interest can be displayed on the screen. The names of traces , channels and markers can be edited and replaced by user- specific names to make them easier to identify.

Easy export and import of results

The use of the Windows XP Embedded operating system, in conjunction with a variety of interfaces, makes it easy to integrate measurement results into documentation by saving screen contents as *.bmp, *.png, *.jpg or *.emf files and exporting these files to a text processing system.

Trace data can be stored as *.snp, *.csv or *.dat files and

subsequently analyzed and processed using other tools. In addition, *.snp and *.csv files created by means of external tools, for example, can be imported into the R&S®ZVA as stored trace data.

Convenient equation editor for complex trace

mathematics

The R&S®ZVA includes a universal equation editor for trace mathematics including even extensive functions. Using these functions, you can link any active traces and stored traces in a variety of ways in realtime. This makes external analysis programs unnecessary. You can store the

equations you have generated, process them by means of external tools and reload them as required.

Flexible channel and trace layout.

Typical configuration steps with the measurement wizard.

Measurement wizard – step by step to the test setup you want

Measuring multiports and balanced DUTs by means of a network analyzer usually requires major configuration

effort on the part of the user, for example for configuring the port topology, selecting the parameters to be displayed, setting the sweep mode or choosing the appropriate calibration technique. With the R&S®ZVA, a measurement wizard guides you step by step through the test setup to create the configuration you want, queries all necessary inputs and offers default settings for the measurement task at hand. Using the wizard, you can e.g. configure the R&S®ZVA to display all 16 mixed-mode

S-parameters of a balanced two-port in virtually no time.

Embedding/deembedding – impedance matching

using virtual networks

Coaxial and balanced components such as SAW filters, which are used in frontends of mobile phones, for example, must be specified together with the networks that match them to the impedance of the surrounding circuit.

In addition, parasitic effects, which occur when the DUT is installed in its operational environment, can be simulated.

Using special algorithms, the R&S® ZVA embeds the DUT in virtual matching networks and also deembeds it to eliminate parasitic effects such as caused by strip lines.

The R&S®ZVA offers various types of transformation networks. The values of the network elements can be edited.

If you modify values of individual elements, the R&S®ZVA immediately recalculates the network and (de)embeds the

DUT in the new network in quasi- realtime.

Alternatively, you can read *.s2p and *.s4p files generated with EDA tools into the R&S®ZVA and use the data for

embedding/deembedding.

Parameterizable network for virtual impedance matching.

hrough,

R

eflect,

M

atch), which are suitable for calibration in test fixtures or on wafers. Since calibration is performed

directly on the DUT plane, any effects from the test fixture are eliminated.

Automatic calibration – fast, error-free and with high precision

While all manual calibration techniques such as TOSM,

TRM and TRL can be used for multiport measurements,

they are time-consuming, error-prone and lead to excessive wear of the calibration standard. Rohde & Schwarz offers an automatic calibration unit for coaxial one-port and multiport calibration. The unit is ready to operate immediately after being connected and performs complete four-port calibration covering 201 test points in less than

30 seconds.

The R&S®ZVA allows for any combination between the analyzer‘s test port connectors and the connectors of the calibration unit. The analyzer detects the connections

automatically. Errors due to wrong connections are a thing of the past.

The R&S®ZVA‘s firmware also allows the recharacterization of calibration units by the user. Moreover, it is possible to characterize a calibration unit together with an adapter of any type. By treating the adapter as part of the calibration unit, the R&S®ZVA supports any combination of any connector types, which means that the calibration unit itself can be equipped with up to four different connectors.

User-specific adapters can also be placed on the connectors of the calibration unit, which protects the connectors against wear.

Adapter removal functionality

The UOSM (

U

nknown Through,

O

pen,

S

hort,

M

atch) calibration technique allows a through connection with unknown parameters to be used as a calibration standard.

This makes it possible to use any adapter with any types of connectors as a “U“ (adapter removal functionality), thus supporting calibration of a DUT with different connector types.

Quick and reliable measurements on multiports and balanced components

A configuration wizard configures all 9 or 16 S-parameters at a few keystrokes.

Display of mixed-mode S-parameters of a SAW filter

Virtual differential measurement mode

The R&S®ZVA characterizes balanced DUTs with one or two balanced ports quickly and accurately. The balanced

DUT is directly connected to the analyzer test ports. Its unbalanced S-parameters are measured, and the mixedmode S-parameters are calculated from these values.

The numerous traces and diagrams offered by the R&S®ZVA provide full characterization of the DUT and straightforward display of all measurement quantities. No sophisticated settings are required on the part of the user. Convenient mark er search and analysis functions facilitate result evaluation especially in the case of filter measurements, for example by determining filter parameters such as bandwidth, ripple and quality factor.

True differential measurement mode

Active components in particular may show a distinctly

different response to a stimulus signal, depending on whether the virtual (standard) or the true differential mea surement mode is applied.

To obtain reliable results even for active differential DUTs, the R&S®ZVA-K6 option provides true differential stimulation and measurements. The test signals delivered by the two internal generators are applied at the reference plane simultaneously with 0° or 180° phase difference. The measurements on the selected test ports are performed

simultaneously. The R&S®ZVA-K6 option also supports true phase imbalance and true amplitude imbalance sweeps of the two stimulus signals.

As with standard measurements, calibration is performed either manually using a calibration kit or automatically with a calibration unit.

Linear and nonlinear amplifier and mixer measurements

The R&S®ZVA system concept, featuring independent synthesizers, enables measurements on amplifiers and frequency-converting DUTs such as mixers and frontends.

The measurements stand out for their high versatility, wide dynamic range, high speed and accuracy.

Internal as well as several external generators can be configured, calibrated and controlled independently of one another. The high spectral purity of the source signals as well as the high intercept point and high sensitivity of the receivers eliminate the need for external filters in multitone measurements and measurements on frequency-converting DUTs.

Dialog for configuring multitone measurements.

Intermodulation products of a frontend.

Large- and small-signal behavior in a single sweep

The R&S®ZVA‘s high output power and wide power sweep range of more than 50 dB (typ. 60 dB) allow the transmis sion and compression characteristics of amplifiers and mixers to be determined largely without any additional preamplifiers being required. This measurement is carried out simply and quickly versus frequency and power. The power sweep range is traversed wear-free and without interruption since no mechanical attenuators have to be switched. Small- and large-signal behavior can thus be displayed in a single sweep.

Simultaneous measurement of noise figure and

S-parameters

The R&S®ZVA receiver architecture, which includes an

average and an RMS detector, makes it possible to mea sure the noise figure and the S-parameters of an amplifier simultaneously without having to modify any connections on the DUT. The method requires neither a noise source nor an impedance tuner; all that is needed is a power

meter for calibration. This simplifies the test setup and

reduces measurement and operator errors.

Up to four internal sources for quick and easy inter modulation and mixer measurements

The ¸ZVA four-port models up to 50 GHz provide two independent sources, and the ¸ZVA67 four-port model even provides four sources. Therefore, intermodulation measurements on amplifiers and conversion gain measurements on mixers can be performed without external generators, and even intermodulation measurements on mixers with the ¸ZVA67. The ¸ZVA receivers feature very good power-handling capability and low phase noise, which enables high-quality intermodulation measurements requiring only a minimum of external components.

Test setup for a mixer measurement

Hot S-parameter measurements – optimization of amplifiers under full load conditions

Power amplifiers must be characterized under full load conditions to ensure that they are optimally matched to the load connected to their output. To determine S

22

under

realistic operating conditions, a stimulating signal is applied to the amplifier input. A low-power signal – which is the actual S

22

test signal – is applied to the amplifier output

(i.e. in the reverse direction). To separate the high-power output signal of the amplifier from the reflected low-power signal, the two sources are swept in parallel, but with a small frequency offset. Only the desired S

22

measurement signal passes through the IF filter. The R&S®ZVA performs this measurement with a wide dynamic range using the high selectivity and sensitivity of its receivers.

Conversion gain and intermodulation measurements on mixers at high speed and with wide dynamic range

The R&S®ZVA8/24/40/50 four-port models require only one additional external source to perform intermodulation measurements on mixers. The R&S®ZVA67 four-port model does not require any additional source for this measurement. The external source is controlled via the analyzer‘s

LAN or IEC/IEEE bus interface. Using the frequency con version option (R&S®ZVA-K4), you can display a mixer‘s matching, conversion gain, isolation, group delay and

intermodulation products versus frequency and power.

Absolute phase measurements on mixers

Any mixer-based receiver system requires that the built-in mixers have well-controlled amplitude, phase and group delay responses. The R&S®ZVA-K5 option makes it possible to characterize all four complex S-parameters of a mixer with LO access, including absolute phase and group delay of the conversion loss. This measurement uses full twoport calibration, which yields high measurement accuracy.

Group delay measurement on converters without

LO access

The R&S®ZVA offers a new technique for measuring the group delay and relative phase of frequency converters without access to the embedded local oscillator or its reference signal. This method requires a four-port R&S®ZVA with two sources to apply a two-tone signal to the converter. The R&S®ZVA evaluates the group delay by measuring the phase differences between both carriers at the input and the output of the DUT. Frequency drift or even frequency modulation of the internal LO does not affect the measurement result as long as the frequency deviation is within the measurement bandwidth of the R&S®ZVA.

Test setup for scalar mixer measurement

Power measurements and scalar network analysis by means of the R&S®NRP2

One or more power meters of the R&S®NRP2 series can be directly connected to the R&S®ZVA via the USB interface or by using an active USB hub. The power meters are treated by the R&S®ZVA like additional test ports. The R&S®ZVA processes the measured values and displays them as traces versus frequency or power. Besides adding power measurement inputs to the R&S®ZVA, this functionality

allows measurements on frequency-converting DUTs to be performed without access to, or knowledge of, the DUT‘s internal LO, in the same way as with a scalar network analyzer.

Options to enhance flexibility, power, and dynamic range

Direct generator and receiver access for all ports

With the direct generator/receiver access options, the sig nal paths of the receivers and generators are taken directly to the front panel. You have direct access to the generators and receivers of all reflectometers, since the internal couplers are bypassed. With a fully configured R&S®ZVA, i.e. with four ports, all eight receivers can capture and process measurement data in parallel.

Generator and receiver step attenuators are optionally avail able for each port to expand the usable generator and receiver power ranges for compression and intermodulation measurements. The output power range at the test port can be decreased to < –100 dBm; the compression-free input power range of the receiver will increase to +27 dBm.

Since the couplers are bypassed and therefore introduce no attenuation, sensitivity is increased by up to 10 dB in the direct mode. This means that high-blocking DUTs can be measured with a dynamic range of up to 150 dB at

1 Hz IF bandwidth.

By connecting suitable external directional couplers, one- and two-port calibration techniques can be used to enhance measurement accuracy without any significant loss in dynamic range.

Output power boosted to +30 dBm for amplifier

measurements

Direct access to all generator and receiver paths allows the flexible configuration of complex external test sets. Such test sets may include filters for improved harmonic suppression or amplifiers for boosting the output power. The output power can be increased to +30 dBm by looping a preamplifier into the generator path and inserting suitable attenuators in the measurement and reference paths.

Connecting external components (e.g. amplifiers) ahead of the reference path eliminates drift and temperature

response in S-parameter measurements. Moreover, all cali bration techniques are available, and the user fully benefits from the advantages of high measurement accuracy and long-term stability.

High-speed time domain analysis with enhanced

resolution capability

Using the time domain option, you can, for example,

locate discontinuities in test fixtures and cables and analyze them, e.g. by means of a gated S-parameter measure ment. You can display impedance versus length, which is of interest in cable measurements. Due to the R&S®ZVA‘s high computing power, the time domain option barely slows down sweep speed. Thus, this option allows cavity resonator filters to be adjusted quickly and easily.

The time domain option can be used in conjunction with various window functions such as Hamming, Hann,

Bohman, or Dolph-Chebyshev.

With conventional TDR methods, the resolution, i.e. the width of reflected-signal peaks and the rise time of step responses, is limited by the network analyzer‘s frequency range. The R&S®ZVA does away with this limitation. Its linear prediction function expands the frequency spectrum by way of computation. Using this function, you can analyze considerably finer structures than was previ ously possible due to the limitation to the analyzer‘s actual frequency range. This function also allows narrowband and frequency-limited DUTs to be measured with higher

accuracy.

5 MHz receiver bandwidth

The R&S®ZVA has a maximum IF bandwidth of 1 MHz as standard. To reduce measurement times even further, the

R&S®ZVA-K17 software option offers IF bandwidths up to

5 MHz. This reduces the net sampling time per point to approx. 430 ns. The option not only speeds up measure ments in the frequency domain, it also provides improved performance for point-in-pulse and pulse profile measurements on pulses of a few microseconds´ length by means of easy-to-configure standard CW or time sweeps, where the S-parameters or amplitudes of pulses are measured as a function of time.

Convenient handling of pulse profile

measurements

The R&S®ZVA performs typical pulsed measurements such as point-in-pulse or high-PRF-mode measurements by means of the direct generator/receiver access option.

The R&S®ZVA-K7 and R&S®ZVA-B7 pulsed measurements options provide a convenient, high-performance solution especially for pulse profile measurements: Even the profiles of very short pulses with a duration far below 100 ns are represented with a resolution of 12.5 ns in the time domain. Traces are updated at a high rate, which greatly facilitates adjustment procedures.

The R&S®ZVA displays amplitude characteristics (the pow ers measured in the measurement and the reference channels, and their ratios), as well as S-parameters in magni tude and phase. Single pulses, double pulses, or pulse

trains up to 3 ms length (R&S®ZVA-K7) or 25 ms length

(R&S®ZVA-B7) can easily be measured. The options in clude methods for compensating the group delay of the

DUT, which makes it possible to measure pulses whose length is shorter than the group delay of the DUT. IF band widths up to 30 MHz are available for short pulses.

Principle of pulse profile measurements

The A/D converter outputs uncorrected sampling values, which are first stored in a high-speed buffer (RAM), and then digitally processed block by block by the software

(see blue arrows in block diagram). Therefore, with sam pling performed independently of signal processing, the pulse signal can be sampled at the converter‘s maximum rate of 80 MHz.

Measurements on active devices made easy

The R&S®ZVAX24 extension unit for the R&S®ZVA simplifies advanced measurements on active devices such as amplifiers. Depending on the measurement tasks, it can be configured with a combiner, harmonic filters, pulse modulators or high-power couplers. It is directly controlled by the R&S®ZVA via a graphical user interface.

The combination of an ¸ZVA and the R&S®ZVAX24 behaves like a fully integrated single box. However, if multiple R&S®ZVAs are being used in a lab, they can share the extension unit. This leads to an optimum utilization of

investment.

Setup for S-parameter, harmonic, intermodulation, and pulsed measurements

Convenient control via a graphical user interface.

Combiner for fast and accurate IMD measurements

An internal combiner provides a two-tone signal, using both sources of a four-port R&S®ZVA or a two-port

R&S®ZVA with an external generator. Together with the

R&S®ZVA’s intermodulation wizard, it simplifies the setup for measuring the intermodulation parameters versus frequency and power.

Pulse modulators for all pulsed RF applications

Two pulse modulators in the source paths allow pulsed measurements on TX/RX modules, amplifiers, and mixers.

A third modulator in the receiver path allows gating of the receiver to prevent compression caused by crosstalk, e.g. for pulsed RCS measurements. Two pulse generators in the R&S®ZVA control the modulators.

Harmonic filters for spurious and harmonic testing

Two harmonic filters in the source paths improve the spectral purity of the generator signal. An additional harmonic filter in the receiver path extends the dynamic range for harmonic and spurious testing.

Coupler for monitoring and high-power applications

A coupler in the measurement path allows parallel monitoring of the measurement signal of port 2 of the

R&S®ZVA, e.g. by means of a spectrum analyzer. Two highpower couplers of the R&S®ZVA are installed to handle power levels up to 43 dBm.
