The increasing numbers of microwave instruments and devices that include IEEE 802.3 interfaces are influencing range design and capabilities, as well as the ability to remotely locate GPIB instruments. The major benefits of LAN based instrumentation systems are increased flexibility in instrument location and increased capabilities over long distances compared to GPIB based ranges. This paper discusses the relative merits of LAN based microwave test instrumentation ranges. Several example range designs are included that demonstrate how LAN based instrumentation can increase range flexibility and reduce costs in range implementation.
