What is VNA?

Users choose a virtual VNA for its speed, flexibility, portability, and security advantages over a conventional VNA. “What is a virtual VNA?”

A virtual VNA is simply a new format of PC-driven instrumentation where the measurement module (VNA hardware) is separate from the processing, which is done on an external computer. The user can take advantage of the processing power, bigger display, and more reliable performance of their external computer.

“What are the benefits?”

·         Speed and Innovation:

The biggest advantage of a virtual VNA is that it doesn’t lock the user into a built-in computer that is already outdated. Unlike a conventional VNA, virtual lets the user have maximum control over the processing and display of their test setup.

·         Cost Effectiveness:

A virtual VNA costs less than 50% of a conventional VNA, delivers equal or better performance, and has vastly fewer potential points of failure. The most commonly failing parts of a conventional VNA are the built-in processor and its peripherals — display, control knobs and buttons, which are can be inexpensively replaced in an external PC.

·         Works for you:

The parameters of a virtual VNA test setup and test results are always stored on an external PC. The measurement hardware can be moved between stations without losing any test states or settings. There is no need for hard drive purging or removal in order to remove the VNA from a secure area, reducing maintenance time and improving physical security in classified or controlled installations.
