Keysight Technologies has enhanced its performance network analyzers viz. PNA and PNA-X to deliver greater flexibility and accuracy while speeding and simplifying required measurements. The proprietary low-spurious direct digital synthesis (DDS) source in these enhanced network analyzers allow customers to take accurate measurements with less phase noise interference.
Moreover, the new DDS sources also enhance the performance of a wide range of software applications, including modulation distortion, SMC with phase, and I/Q converter measurements, to provide exceptional speed in mixer/frequency converter characterization.
The clean source signals enable customers to perform two-tone IMD measurements with close tone spacing. Offering a third radio frequency (RF) source up to 13.5 GHz on the PNA-X simplifies measurement set up by taking the place of an external signal generator to drive local oscillators.
Simplified test stations by replacing racks and stacks of equipment, reduced test time with a wide range of single-connection measurement applications, accurate linear and non-linear device characterization using advanced error correction, accelerated insight into component behavior using a multi-touch display and intuitive user interface are the benefits that users can avail using enhanced PNA and PNA-X network analyzers.
