Smart Accessories for testing complex RF Applications

Siglent SSU5000A03 November 2023 - SIGLENT announced the release of SEM5000A series electronic calibration (ECal) modules, SSU5000A series mechanical switch and SSM5000A series switch matrix, which are designed and optimized for use with the SHA850A, SVA1000X and SNA5000A series vector network analyzers from SIGLENT. They offer a comprehensive, cost-effective total solution for simple to complex RF measurement tasks on multiport and multiple devices.

In order to meet the multiport test requirements of microwave and millimeter wave systems, SIGLENT has introduced SSU5000A series mechanical switches with frequency range up to 50 GHz. The SSU5000A has compact design, excellent RF characteristics, low insertion loss, great impedance matching and fast switching time. It contains 1-4 independent single-pole double-throw mechanical switches with SMA or 2.4 mm connectors, or 1-2 single-pole six-throw mechanical switches.

SEM5000A series electronic calibrators include 5002A / 5012A / 5022A / 5032A / 5004A / 5014A / 5024A / 5034A, covering the frequency bands of 9kHz to 4.5GHz / 9kHz to 9GHz / 100kHz to 13.5GHz / 100kHz to 26.5GHz, with USB interface for communication and power. They are suitable for calibration and error correction of SHA850A series, SVA1000X series and SNA5000A series vector network analyzers from SIGLENT. The SEM5000A series are simple, fast, efficient, accurate, and widely applicable. Modules have SMA or 3.5 mm connections with custom configurations also available.

RF test systems increase quickly in complexity. When requirements go beyond the mechanical switch systems, an RF matrix switch system can often address this added complexity. To fill this need, SIGLENT is also introducing a powerful RF matrix test solution suitable for different frequencies and port requirements. The SSM5000A series switch matrix can expand the number of test ports of network analyzer, signal source, spectrum analyzer and other equipment. With up to 4 input ports and up to 24 output ports, supporting USB, LAN, and Direct Control communication modes, these switch matrix systems simplify device connections as well as system topology with added flexibility. The Direct Control interface on the switch matrix also makes it possible to further automate multiport calibration for maximum efficiency. These RF switch systems can be used with any brand RF test equipment ideal for mixed system designs. Built into a standard 19” rack chassis, these systems are ideal for multiport test environments from basic antennas to complete 5G component modules.
