Description

FA-450 main pic
The FA-450 Antenna Analyzer is an open source project built from STM32-F7 Discovery board. This project originated from “EU1KY Antenna Analyzer V3”, which features with BIG COLOR TFT LCD, CAPACITIVE TOUCHSCREEN, HF/VHF(UHF) frequency coverage, built-in TDR function, and multiple scanning curves besides with SWR. These features may outperform many expensive antenna analyzers present on the market.The analyzer utilizes the DSP technology to analyze the sampled and lower converted (10KHz) V & I signal and derive the their magnitude ratio and phase difference. The calibrated measured results could be veryaccurated for amateur radio purpose. So, an Open-Short-Load calibration is required to compensate transmission line influence on measured parameters before the final usage.

Moreover, the device is able to work up to 450 MHz for some less accurate measurements.(Using 3rd harmonics of both signal and LO above 150 MHz, or above 200 MHz if properly confgured).

The FA-450 comes with an aluminium enclosure which consists of 6 sheets of 3mm aluminium plates, all are in silvery anodic oxidation. A cell of 18650 Li-ion battery is needed to power up the analyzer, and you can switch the analyzer to the charging mode if a USB power source is connected. It will stop the charging process if the battery cell is fully charged. Due to the international shipment regulations, the KIT or the fully assembled unit does not contain a 18650 battery, and the users should prepare one by themselves.

Also, the analyzer comes with a 16G TF card for storing the calibrated files and saved measurement results, and this could be a creative feature of this analyzer.

For those who want to purchase the unassembled kits, please see the video below for the assembly guide. Also click to download the assembly notes here.

**** 18650 battery is not included with the analyzer due to the shipping regulations. Users should purchase one from other source.

**** Some notes on shipments: As it is all international shipments, it takes some times. So for those customers who have placed an order, please be patient, and we will fulfill the shipment 100%. Here is the basic shipping route for an elekitsorparts store’s order:

Order received (email notification to customer) –> Packing and submitting the item to our local courier –> Local courier ships the item to the shipment process hub in another city (Shenzhen) and then, tracking number will be released (this process will take 2-3 days) –> Elekitsorparts store emails the tracking info to our customer –> International shipment by air, shipping time will be varied according to different destination countries (7-21 days) –> Air port of destination country –> Partner courier of destination country picks up the item at the airport –> Final delivery to our customer

So, usually, the second Email with tracking info will be sent to our customer in 2-3 days after the date of order placement. Please be patient and check your mail box for info.
