With the multifunctional Bode 100 you get an exact picture of your electronic circuits and components in a frequency range from 1 Hz to 50 MHz. The Bode 100 is not only a state of the art Vector Network Analyzer, it also works as:

  • Frequency Response Analyzer
  • Impedance Meter
  • Gain Phase Meter
  • Sine Wave Generator

Accurate and compact with an unbeatable price-performance ratio, it is the best choice for industrial applications as well as research and educational labs.

The VNA Bode 100 is the perfect tool for application fields like production, research and development, educational institutions as well as service and maintenance. The compact hardware is controlled from the easy-to-use and intuitive Bode Analyzer Suite via USB.


The lightweight and portable hardware design combined with the Bode Analyzer Suite for Windows guarantee a very easy and user friendly handling of the Bode 100. Moreover, an OLE automation interface allows integrating the Bode 100 in any automated system.

The Bode 100 system includes:

  • Bode 100 Vector Network Analyzer (Calibration certificate included.)
