Irvine, CA - Pasternack, a leading manufacturer and supplier of RF, microwave and millimeter wave products, has expanded their portfolio of general purpose VNA calibration kits with new 50 and 75 Ohm versions. These new cal kits offer excellent performance characteristics that are specially designed for the fine-tuning and calibration of sensitive test equipment in engineering labs, production environments and quality testing facilities. All of Pasternack's calibration kits are built to withstand years of rigorous use and provide accurate RF equipment calibration for the life of the product.
Pasternack's new line of general purpose VNA calibration kits come in three economical versions including a 50 ohm 3.5mm calibration kit up to 26.5 GHz, a 3.5mm kit up to 8.5 GHz , and a 75 Ohm Type-F calibration kit operating to 3 GHz. These new VNA calibration kits complement the company’s existing models which include a 3.5mm kit operating to 26.5 GHz (PE5500-KIT) and a Type-N kit operating to 18 GHz (PE5501-KIT). Each of the new VNA calibration kits from Pasternack includes all of the necessary Short Circuits, Open Circuits, Loads and Thru (SOLT) components required for proper testing. The kits are suitable for many 50 Ohm and 75 Ohm network analyzers from the industry’s leading providers such as Agilent, Rohde & Schwarz, Anritsu and Copper Mountain. These RF test and measurement kits all come packaged inside protective wooden boxes.
"A properly calibrated VNA allows for precise characterization of RF and microwave components and our new calibration kits provide the precision components needed to perform accurate user calibrations," says Steve Ellis, Interconnect Product Manager at Pasternack.
