New VNA Software and Firmware releases 1.9.001
Get 4x more speed, enhanced graphics and more with the latest VNA software and firmware
What’s new in VNA version 1.9.001 and Firmware version 1.9.001
- The measuring speed is improved by a factor 4
- Enhanced graphs with selectable line width, marker font size and marker transparency
- Robust software operation during sweeping
- Robust USB connect and disconnect handling
- Several small improvements and corrections
The measuring speed has been improved by a new sampling scheme. At the highest speed the measuring times are:
Points Freq Range 1-port 2-port
4000 400 – 6000 MHz 1000 ms 2000 ms
25 400 – 6000 MHz 21 ms 41 ms
25 400 – 500 MHz 17 ms 33 ms
The improved speed gives the VNA a real-time look and feel up to several hundred points sweep size. In addition this makes our VNAs attractive for high speed production testing.
The software now used GDI+ for enhanced features as anti-aliasing, line width, transparency and smoothing.
We added settings for line width, marker size and marker transparency for each screen representation and report output.
Robust software operation during sweeping
Some users were experiencing problems when changing sweep settings during sweep mode. This has been addressed and is correctly handled now.
