IMS 2017: Test products and more, part 2

-June 15, 2017

Last week in part 1, I presented several test products seen on Wednesday, June 7 at the 2017 International Microwave Symposium in Honolulu. Here are a few more test products, plus other important product announcements, that I'd seen on Thursday, June 8. There's more to IMS than 5G, despite all the hype.

Test products

Anritsu's Shockline series of VNAs was one of several products on display in the booth. The four-port MS45624B is available in models from 50 kHz to 8.5 GHz, 20 GHz, and 43.5 GHz. It produces S-parameters for devices such as cables, connectors, antennas, and fixtures.

Every time I attend a trade show, I find test-equipment companies that were previously unknown to me. That's the case with Triarchy Technologies, which demonstrated its line of USB spectrum analyzers. Models are currently available for frequencies up to 13.5 GHz at prices from $699 to $999.

Chinese low-end instrument manufacturer Owon was also present at IMS, showing multimeters, oscilloscopes, and this 1.5 GHz spectrum analyzer. That's not exactly microwave frequency.
