The MiniVNA-TINY is a very compact antenna analyzer with USB connection. Remarkable is the very large frequency range from 1 to 3000 MHz. The MiniVNA-TINY is a network analyzer and does not only allow measurement of SWR and impdances of antennas. As a two-port system the MiniVNA-Tiny can be used for transmission measurements on band filters or amplifiers. The device works as a vectorial analzer, suitable to do typical quadrupole measurements of S11 and S21 parameters. The results can be displayed or stored as Smith diagram.

Due to the calibration with an optional calibration kit (open, short, load, see arrticle 21010.SMA) the measurement results are precise and easily reproducible. Impedance (Z) can be measured from 1 to 1000 Ω, the dynamic range is up to 70 dB. The analyser can be used as a low power HF generator as well. Power supply is done by the USB interface, an external power supply is not required. Software upgrades are also provided via the USB interface. The recommended software is 'VNA/J' the same software as already known from the other MinIVNA products. THis software is available for Windows, MAC and Linux, a new Android app is also available.

The Android app is called 'BlueVNA' and is available in the Google Play Store. The connection to the Android device is done by USB, you will require an OTG adaptor (not sold by WiMo).

And the Tiny is one incredible device! Although the VNA/J software is loaded with tons of features, getting it up and running with the Tiny is a piece of cake and I was graphing and adjusting antennas within about 20 minutes of opening the package and starting the installation steps. I was crazy about this thing within minutes of firing it up, but the more I discover that the VNA/J software paired with the Tiny will do, the better it gets. Even measuring and testing coaxial cables just became easier than ever before. In short: I'm wild about this small but extremely powerful little device. It's sure to secure and keep its place as my main device for tuning antennas, rendering all other antenna tuning devices I've owned virtually obsolete. For serious antenna builders, I can't recommend the MiniVNA Tiny enough. On a scale of 1 to 10, so far I'm giving in about a 15. :-) KK4ICE / Dan

Mini-VNA PRO BT Antenna analyser with Bluetooth

The mini-VNA Pro BT is a furthr development of the worldwide highly acclaimed mini-VNA Network Analyser. The most prominent enhancements are a built in LiIon battery and the new Bluetooth interface. Both enhancements allow you to use the mini-VNA Pro BT ouitdoors, directly at the base of the antenna.

Further functions and technical data of the mini-VNA Pro BT

  • Frequecy range 0.1 to 200MHz
  • Calibration using open/short-load for accurate results
  • Range of impedance Z from 1 to 1000Ω
  • Two ports VNA with S11 and S12 display; displayed and save results
  • I/Q DDS Generator with 0 dBm output power
  • Two separate RF outputs for I/Q for SDR experiemnts and IMD measurements with independent attenuator from 0 to 55dB, phase angle adjustable to 1° precision
  • Built in Bluetooth® Adaptor (Class 1) for wireless remote measurements
  • Built in LiIon 1000mAh battery, (4 hours full-scan operation)
  • Built in battery charger (up to 400mA)
  • Accessory port for future optional interfaces and frequency extenders
  • Low power consumption, 220mA @3.6V, (analyser mode using USB port)
  • Power save mode
  • SMA connectors for better isolation
  • extended dynamic range: up to 90 dB for transmission, up to 50 dB for reflection
  • Boot loader for future firmware upgrades
  • User friendly interface for PC Windows, Linux and MAC
  • Integrated Smith Chart in software
  • Measurements of motional crystal parameters, cable lengths & more
  • Export dat in several formats: JPG, Excel, ZPLOT, S2P, PDF
  • Included in shipment is:
  • Mini VNA Pro BT incl. Akku
  • USB cable

Note on Software: The software for both versions Mini-VNA and Mini-VNA Pro BT is continously developed. For this reasons a CD ROM is not included in shipment anymore. The current software is always downloadable from the internet. We recommend for example the program vna/J by DL2SBA. This is an application written in Java which runs fine under Windows, MacOS and Linux. This is also the software which is linked to by the manufacturer.

    Dear Ralph,

    I have it!!!  It works! Unbelievably cool piece of equipment,
    way better than my old ***.  Feels like I finally got an inside
    passage into my antennas and transmission lines.

    Ralph,

    Sure, you can quote me! Today I started playing with the bluetooth mode,
    unbelievably convenient.  Another thing I discovered is that you can run
    the analyzer continuously and see how tuning network controls (like antenna
    tuner, etc.) impact your SWR, etc. in real time!  This is a great tool to
    gain solid understanding of all important RF concepts, I only wish I had it
    available years ago when I was first learning about radio.
