Currently awaiting configuration of new batch - available again soon

A new product from the Designer of the DG8SAQ Low Cost 1.3 GHz Vector Network Analyzer, the Magi-Cal® is an automated SMA Calibrator for use with the VNWA 3, VNWA 3EC and VNWA3SE (to be released by end January 2020).

Normally, the VNWA calibration process involves a number of connect/disconnect cycles of the various calibration standards.This is time consuming and can be prone to handling errors - Measurement results with vector network analyzers are only as good as the quality of the performed calibration.

The Magi-Cal® performs an automatic one port or two port VNWA calibration with a single connect cycle.

Covering the full frequency range of the VNWA, the Magi-Cal® offers a high quality of calibration that is on par with what can be achieved with Premium Calibration parts 

Each Magi-Cal® device is individually commissioned and calibrated, and the model parameters are stored within the Magi-Cal® hardware itself. This gives the added benefit that the unit can be quickly and easily used to calibrate multiple VNWAs.

  • The Magi-Cal® device contains two sets of reflect calibration standards for either rf port, and a thru calibration standard potentially connecting port 1 to port 2.

  • The standards can be connected internally to the two ports via USB control

    • Upon connecting the Magi-Cal® to a computer USB socket, the LED indicates functionality of the device by briefly flashing up in the sequence red-orange-green-OFF

      Specification:

      •     Automatic VNWA two port  Short, Open, Load and Thru (SOLT) Calibration device

      •     Supports one-port (S11 and ) and full two-port (S11, S12, S21, S22) Calibrations

      •     Frequency Range dc...1 GHz  with reduced accuracy to 1.3 GHz

      •     Supports all VNAs that are operated with the DG8SAQ VNWA Software,  eg VNWA 2, VNWA3, VNWA3E, VNWA3SE, N2PK-VNA and the FA-VA5 Antenna Vector Analyzer
