GORE® PHASEFLEX® Microwave/RF Test Assemblies Selected by Rohde & Schwarz for Use With R&S ZNBT20 Multi-Port VNA


LANDENBERG, Pa. (June 15, 2017) - W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc. (Gore) has announced that Rohde & Schwarz (R&S) is endorsing GORE PHASEFLEX Microwave/RF Test Assemblies for use with its new R&S ZNBT20 multi-port VNA.

The new R&S ZNBT20 from Rohde & Schwarz is the first true multiport vector network analyzer in the microwave range with up to 16 integrated test ports. The unique hardware architecture from the R&S ZNBT8 has been extended to 20 GHz. This allows users to characterize multiple devices under test in parallel and thus increase throughput tremendously. The R&S ZNBT offers the high measurement performance of a two-port network analyzer at each of its test ports.

To address the demanding requirements of high-density and modular test instruments for wireless devices and aerospace systems, Gore has introduced GORE PHASEFLEX Microwave/RF Test Assemblies, Type 0N – the smallest, lightest, most internally ruggedized assembly on the market today for modular, multi-port, and multisite test applications. Gore’s high-density test assemblies ensure consistent, repeatable measurements with stable electrical performance up to 50 GHz.

Josef Wolf, Vice President T&M Analysis Products at Rohde & Schwarz, says: "With GORE we have found an ideal provider for microwave cable assemblies. Offering highly reliable, phase stable cables, their products are the perfect match for our multi-port VNA solution. This enables us to offer our customers the fast and reliable test results they expect from Rohde & Schwarz."
