Vector Network Analyzer - Bode 500


Preliminary Information! The Bode 500 is still under development and we will update this page with the latest information available.


The Bode 500 is the most powerful analyzer from OMICRON Lab. Its ultra-wide frequency range enables precise measurements from <1 Hz up to 450 MHz. 

The Bode 500 offers high linearity and a high dynamic range of > 120 dB to enable accurate vector network analysis, frequency response analysis, and impedance measurements. The switchable inputs provide 50 Ω termination and a high impedance setting with ac-coupled 1 MΩ for measurements on active systems and the use with external probes.
With 56 dB of dynamic range on the output and a maximum power level of 16 dBm, the analyzer offers enough signal injection power for loop gain and output impedance measurements on switching converters and power distribution networks (PDN). These capabilities make the Bode 500 the instrument of choice for power integrity verifications and loop stability measurements.

The Bode 500 is a silent, fanless, portable instrument that can be powered by Ethernet (PoE), USB (USB-PD), or a standard power supply. The analyzer offers a USB-C and an Ethernet interface for connection to the network or the control computer. When used with the powerful Bode Analyzer Suite, the Bode 500 offers the same user experience and ease of use as the popular Bode 100.
Besides the Bode Analyzer Suite, the Bode 500 can be controlled directly via SCPI commands, enabling stand-alone, platform-independent automated measurements.
