The PicoVNA 106 is a professional USB-controlled, laboratory grade Vector Network Analyzer.. Despite its small size and low cost, the instrument has a ‘Quad RX’ four-receiver architecture to eliminate the uncorrectable errors, delays and fragility of three-receiver designs with internal transfer switches.
The PicoVNA 106 offers exceptional dynamic range of 118 dB and only 0.005 dB RMS trace noise at its maximum operating bandwidth of 140 kHz. It can gather all four s-parameters at every frequency point in just 190 µs; in other words a 500 point 2-port .s2p Touchstone file in less than one tenth of a second. It is affordable in the classroom, small business and even amateur workshop, yet capable in the microwave expert's laboratory.
