DIY Vector Network Analyzer

What to do when a piece of test equipment is too expensive?  Henrik Forstén decided to design and build his own:

Cheap homemade 30 MHz – 6 GHz vector network analyzer

Vector network analyzer (VNA) are used to measure scattering parameters of high frequency circuits

Since I can’t afford even a used VNA I decided to make one myself with a budget of 200€, tenth of what they cost used and about 1/100 of what they cost new

The design files and source code are available on GitHub:

    Hi George, this is the KiCad PCB layout design file:
    https://github.com/Ttl/vna/blob/master/hardware/vna.kicad_pcb

    The .kicad_pcb file can be uploaded directly to OSH Park to order the PCB:
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/Ttl/vna/master/hardware/vna.kicad_pcb

    Here is a link that will import the board to OSH Park:

    Please email support@oshpark.com if you run into any problems.

    Thanks,
    Drew
