Vector network analyzer (VNA) overview
Vector network analyzer (VNA) measurement systems are used to fully
characterize the linear behavior of two port devices or networks. Device
characteristics include the magnitude and phase data of the transmission or
reflection parameters that are required to determine complex impedance, both
resistive and reactive components, shown in Figure 1. A network’s behavior is
linear when (1) a linear change in the input results in a linear change in the
output, and (2) the output, resulting from multiple input signals, is the same
as the sum of the outputs resulting from independent input signals. Some
examples of linear networks are filters, amplifiers, cables and isolators.
A network analyzer measurement system can be divided into four major parts
shown in Figure 2:
1. A signal source providing the incident signal
2. Signal separation devices to separate the incident, reflected and transmitted signals, and then down converts the microwave signals to a lower
intermediate (IF) signal
3. A receiver to attain the IF signal and down convert it to DC
4. A signal processor and display section that processes the data and displays
information on a CRT

The Agilent Technologies 8510 network analyzer consists of a family of
compatible products where each part is a separate system component. Each
complete system includes the 8510 network analyzer, a test set, and compatible
sources (measurement accessories are also needed to complete the measurement setup), shown in Figure 3. The frequency range of the measurement system is determined by the test set or the compatible source’s lesser frequency.
Example: if a 50 GHz test set is used with a 20 GHz source, the maximum
frequency measured is 20 GHz.

Test Sets
The test set in a VNA measurement
system is used to separate the incident, the reflected, and the transmitted
signals. It is also used to convert
the RF signal to IF (intermediate
fre- quency) signal and to pass the IF
to the receiver.
Once signals are separated, their
individual magnitude and phase
differences can be measured. Test
sets are classified into two groups: (1)
one-path transmission or reflection
and (2) two-path S-parameter allowing forward and reverse measurements of a two port device with a
single connection. S-parameter test
sets can be divided into two types: (1)
sampler- based and (2) mixer-based,
shown in Table 3. Sampler-based test
sets require one external source to
provide the RF stimulus. The mixerbased test sets require two external
sources; one to provide the RF stimulus and the other to provide the LO
signal.

1. Although general purpose 8360 series synthesized sweepers (836x0B) can be used in place of the 8510-dedicated
8360 series synthesized sweepers (836x1B), the following options are typically recommended: Option 004 (rear
panel connectors) and Option 008 (1-Hz frequency resolution). These options are standard in the 8510-dedicated
8360 series synthesized sweepers.
Mixed sources: While mixing synthesized series is acceptable in multiple-source applications, the following areas
must be considered:
• RF source = 8340, LO source = 8340, system performance will be degraded substantially.
• RF source = 8340, LO source = 8360, better system performance
• RF source = 8360, LO source = 8360, faster step frequency measurements. Using the 8340 as either the RF
source or the LO source will more than double the measurement time.
2. All coaxial test port connectors are ruggedized connectors.
3. These test sets provide access to four samplers directly.
4. The following test set modules are available. Two test set modules must be ordered for complete waveguide
S-parameter test set operation for each waveguide band:
• Q85104A test set module (33 GHz to 50 GHz)
• U85104A test set module (40 GHz to 60 GHz)
• V85104A test set module (50 GHz to 75 GHz)
• W85104A test set module (75 GHz to 110 GHz)
7
Sources
The RF or microwave signal source in a VNA measurement system provides
the incident signal used to stimulate the device-under-test (DUT). The DUT
responds by reflecting part of the incident and transmitting the remaining
part. By sweeping the frequency of the source, the frequency response of the
DUT can be determined.
There are two types of sources available; the General Purpose (GP) 8360 series
synthesized sweepers (836x0B) and the 8510-dedicated 8360 series synthesized
sweepers (836x1B). Note: All 8360A synthesizers have been replaced by 8360B
synthesizers.
Dedicated sources, such as the 836x1B shown in Table 4, are optimized
for use in the 8510 network analyzer systems. They are configured without
modulation capabilities or front panel keyboards. These sources include a
1 Hz frequency resolution and rear-panel output connectors.

For applications that require modulation capabilities, such as pulsed-RF

sweeper, shown in Table 5. Order Option 004 to obtain rear panel connectors,
and Option 008 for 1 Hz frequency resolution.

Upgrade considerations
There are numerous reasons for upgrading the Agilent 8510 system. The 8510
network analyzer maintains excellent performance while adapting to different
measurement requirements such as basic component testing, on-wafer probing,
pulsed device characterization, antenna and RCS (Radar Cross Section) measurements. Depending on the application, the 8510 network analyzer system
can be reconfigured to meet other system measurement needs.

Test set upgrades
A single 8510 network analyzer can be configured to control up to four test
sets. The operator can switch between test sets, without reconnections, using
front panel controls. This arrangement is often referred to as the multiple
test set configuration. Each test set must be equipped with Option 001 for IF
switching. Other requirements may apply for RF/LO switching.
For more details, please refer to product note 8510-14, Using Multiple Test
Sets with the Agilent 8510C (literature number 5967-5886E).
Agilent 8511A K01 or 08511-60008 Retrofits IF switching (Option 001) to any 8510
test set for multiple test set operations.
Expanding measurement capabilities
Adding pulse capabilities (Option 008)
To perform pulse measurements, the 8510 network analyzer must be retrofitted
with Option 008. The measurement system must include either the 85110L
(0.045 to 2 GHz) or 85110A (2 to 20 GHz) pulsed-RF S-parameter test set and
two synthesizers (high power synthesizers may apply).
• The 85110L requires an 83620B synthesizer with
Options 001/004/008/H80 (for RF) and an 83620B with
Options 004/008/H80 (for LO)
• The 85110A requires an 83622B synthesizer with
Options 001/004/008 (for RF) and an 83623L with
Options 004/008 (for LO)
Agilent 85111B Adds pulsed-RF measurement capability (Option 008) to the 8510C
by adding new circuitry and includes on-site installation by an Customer
Engineer (where available). To perform pulsed-RF measurements, the 8510
with Option 008 must be used with either the 85110L or 85110A Pulsed-RF
S-parameter test set. Other requirements may apply.
Adding time domain capabilities
With the time domain option, data from transmission or reflection measurements are converted from the frequency domain to the time domain via the
inverse Fourier transform. The time domain data are presented on the CRT
display showing the measured parameter value versus time.
Agilent 85012C Adds time domain (Option 010) to an 8510C (customer installed).

To upgrade from one system to another, simply order the pieces that are needed
in the new system that are currently not in the existing system, an example
is shown in Figure 9. Complete waveguide S-parameter systems require two
test set modules for each band.1 Necessary accessories such as calibration kits,
verification kits, test port cables or adapters2 must be ordered. See pages 17
through 19 for more information.
1. The following test set modules are available. Two test set modules must be ordered for complete waveguide
S-parameter test set operation for each waveguide band:
• Q85104A test set module (33 GHz to 50 GHz)
• U85104A test set module (40 GHz to 60 GHz)
• V85104A test set module (50 GHz to 75 GHz)
• W85104A test set module (75 GHz to 110 GHz)
2. Please refer to the RF & Microwave Test Accessories Catalog (literature number 5964-9527E) on detailed
information on available adapters.
12
Here is a checklist of items to consider when upgrading systems:
1. Which 8510 do I have? The 8510C is recommended for the latest available
measurement capabilities.
• To upgrade an 8510A to an 8510C, order 85103E.
• To upgrade an 8510B to an 8510C, order 85103F.
• Make sure the appropriate options are ordered. For instance, order
Option 010 if the 8510 has previously installed time domain.
• Do I need pulse capabilities? If yes, order 85111B for 8510C.
2. What test set do I need?
• Refer to Table 3 for test set selection. Frequency range and application
type are critical when selecting the appropriate test set.
3. What source do I need?
• Refer to Table 3 for the source(s) that’s required for the test set of choice.
4. What measurement accessories do I need?
• The appropriate measurement accessories will be determined mainly
by the connector type of the device-under-test (DUT). These accessories
include calibration (mechanical or electronic), verification kits, test port
cables and/or adapters as appropriate. Refer to pages 17 through 19 for
available products.

Measurement accessories
There are measurement accessories for seven device connector types: 7 mm,
3.5 mm, 2.92 mm, 2.4 mm, 1.85 mm, 1 mm and Type-N. Calibration kits include
standards that are required for vector error correction. Verification kits
include standards used to verify system performance specifications. Test port
return cables extend the ports of the test set and connect to the device under
test. Agilent 85130X adapter sets convert test set ports to the same connector
type (acting as a test port saver) or to a different connector type.
1. Standard 85105A already includes IF switching (Option 001)
2. Option 050 provides a 50 GHz RF source switch. This is necessary in order to operate with the
existing 83651B 50 GHz source and 8517B 50 GHz test set.
3. To operate in W-band, replace all V-band components with W-band.

Calibration kits
Error correction requires that the systematic errors in the measurement
system be characterized by measuring known devices (standards) over the
frequency range of interest with the process of calibration. All calibration kits
contain standards used for this purpose. The standards in the 3.5 mm, 2.4 mm
and Type-N calibration kits use the precision slotless connector (PSC-3.5,
PSC-2.4 and PSC-N). Unless otherwise noted all coaxial calibration kits include
connector gauges and a torque wrench.

Test port cables and adapters
Test port cables and adapter sets are available for various connector types.
Special test port adapter sets convert the rugged ports of the network analyzer
test set to the desired connector interface. Each kit contains two adapters, one
male and one female. Both the cables and the test port adapters have one special female connector which is designed to connect directly to the 3.5 mm test
port (2.4 mm for 8517B). This side of the cable or adapter can only be connected
to the test set port and cannot be mated to a standard 3.5 mm (or 2.4 mm)
male connector. Choose one of the configurations shown.
Configuration A. This cable arrangement is for applications where the device
under test is connected directly to the test set port. This setup offers the best
mechanical rigidity for device connection. To adapt the test set port (port 1) to
the device under test, choose the appropriate special adapter set. In addition
to converting the test port to the desired interface, these adapters also function as “test port savers” which protect the test set from damage and wear due
to heavy use.
