On September 6, Grenoble Institute of Technology’s Phelma engineering school hosted a seminar to inaugurate an Anritsu network analyzer that is unique in France. The four-port analyzer covers a range of frequencies from continuous up to 145 GHz. It is used to characterize circuit components like amplifiers, couplers, dividers, and diplexers for 5G telecommunications, IoT, imaging, and automotive radar applications. A prototype of the analyzer was tested in 2016 at IMEP-LaHC. The final version, which is located at CIME Nanotech, was purchased with funds from the Grenoble-Alps University IDEX grant, the CEA, and contracts with the new RFIC-Lab. The projects have strengthened the ties between Anritsu and these stakeholders in Grenoble. The network analyzer will be available for use by researchers from academia as well as by industrial R&D professionals.
