Rohde & Schwarz ZVA8 300 kHz – 8 GHz Vector Network Analyzer

Rohde & Schwarz ZVA8 300 kHz – 8 GHz Vector Network Analyzer


The Rohde & Schwarz ZVA8 comes in 2- and 4-Port Configurations – please specify when ordering. See below for additional options and configurations.

The Rohde & Schwarz ZVA8 is the high-end class of the Rohde & Schwarz network analyzers. It combines operating ease and high measurement speed uniformly implemented in the R&S ZVA, R&S ZVB, and R&S ZVT with exceptional RF characteristics, a wide scope of functions, and high flexibility.

Short technology cycles and project-dependent requirements mean that investments need to be made with a strong focus on flexibility and future-readiness. At the same time, measurement tasks are becoming more complex and require higher measurement precision. The R&S ZVA family of vector network analyzers meets these demands by providing excellent measurement speed, dynamic range and measurement precision as a solid basis. A variety of measurement capabilities build on this solid base to allow the characterization of various components and modules. Complex measurements are supported by measurement wizards to shorten the setup and calibration time and reduce the probability of operator errors.

The Rohde & Schwarz ZVA8 300 kHz – 8 GHz Vector Network Analyzer hardware platform with up to four independent signal sources and two independent receivers per test port is the right base for future measurement requirements and secure investments.
