Analog Devices and Richardson RFPD are designing .01-20GHz, small, multiport, network analyzer signal chains for industrial, portable and production test applications. .01-20GHz network analyzers are complicated, which translates to being large and expensive. ADI has released the ADL5960; a .01-20GHz, integrated vector network analyzer front end on a chip, which enables small network analyzers. The design accelerators include all components necessary for a network analyzer; including highspeed converters, FPGA, signal generation, and the ADL5960. The design goal was to remove our customers risk and reduce their design time.
