Model Change Note:
Please note that existing software licenses are no longer valid when the model number is changed. Please contact us to have new software licenses issued.

Frequency Range Upgrade Note:
We offer frequency range upgrades to change a 2-port 6 GHz PNA-L to 13.5 GHz (option 960), a 2-port 20 GHz PNA-L to 40 GHz (option 971/973), and a 2-port 40 GHz PNA-L to 50 GHz (option 990). However, we do not offer a 2-port 13.5 GHz to 20 GHz upgrade. This is because the 6 and 13.5 GHz PNA-L was designed with a set of hardware which is very different than that in the 20 GHz PNA-L. To change the frequency range would require replacing about $25,000 worth of hardware. It is much more cost-effective to trade in your 13.5 GHz PNA-L toward the purchase of a new 20 GHz PNA-L. If you are still interested in pursuing this upgrade path, please contact us.
