Anritsu Unveils New W1 Coaxial Components

We like to think of new and groundbreaking technology as being something like a new iPhone or a new Boeing commercial jetliner. But, actually, the biggest innovations usually come as a result of the smallest parts. Earlier in September, Anritsu Company, the United States subsidiary of Anritsu Corporation in Japan, introduced a new line of W1 coaxial components. This new family of metrology-grade designed and manufactured components are intended to remove measurement complexity, reduce setup time, and improve accuracy to deliver precision performance and repeatability for high-frequency measurements.

The new line includes a two-resistor power splitter, three-resistor power divider, 20-110 GHz directional coupler with typical performance down to 110 MHz, and attenuators that provide coverage from DC to 110 GHz. All four component are designed with W1 connectors, which are 1.0 mm compatible, and intended for broadband scalability and mode-free performance up to 125GHz. As a result, there is improved measurement accuracy and the better device under test (DUT) characterization. The components are also designed to perform with the excellent voltage standing wave ratio (VSWR) and low insertion loss.

Anritsu’s new coaxial components, unlike other solutions based on banded waveguide frequencies, are not band limited and support a frequency range from DC to 110 GHz. This eliminated the need to de-embed adapters between native coaxial interface types, effectively eliminating the need for calibrations between coaxial cable to waveguide. They’re more efficient, saving time and money.

The excellent performance of the W1 connectors makes them perfect for a number of high-frequency designs. They can be used to characterize amplifiers and sub-components in automotive radar; for on-wafer characterization and measurement; and in metrology labs for instrument calibration and characterization.
