ENA Series 2-, 3-, and 4-port RF Network Analyzer
E5070B/71B
Features
ENA series RF network analyzer with four built-in test ports
New-generation wireless equipment depends on advanced RF components,
from duplexers and couplers to differential SAW filters and amplifiers. These
components need to be measured efficiently in R&D and production process.
Fast and accurate testing is crucial, and Agilent's ENA series network analyzers
offer comprehensive measurement capabilities for advanced multiport devices.
Built-in two, three, or four test ports provide simultaneous measurement of
all signal paths in components with up to four ports. This advanced architecture minimizes the number of sweeps required for multiport S-parameter
measurements and helps increase test throughput.
• Full specified performance from 300 kHz
to 3 GHz (E5070B) and 300 kHz to 8.5 GHz
(E5071B)
• Built-in 2, 3, and 4 test ports
• Up to Full 4-port calibration
• 122 dB wide dynamic range
• 0.001 dBrms low trace noise
• Fast measurement speed: 9.6 us/point
• Up to 16 measurement channels
• Up to 16 traces per channel
• Real-time balanced measurements
• Flexible matching circuit simulation
• Port characteristic impedance conversion
for non-50 ohm device measurements
• Advanced calibration: TRL/LRL cal and
mixed-connector cal
• Simulation linkage with Touchstone files
(s2p, s3p, and s4p)
The ENA series also accelerates test system
development and expands customization
capabilities. Built-in Visual Basic® for
Applications (VBA) allow you to develop
and customize test programs in the ENA
series, or import Visual Basic programs
from an external PC. A custom user interface using a touch screen (optional) can
be created on the 10.4" LCD display.
For more information:
Built-in balanced measurements, matching-circuit simulation, and port
characteristic impedance conversion all enable accurate characterization of
most advanced RF components. These test capabilities contribute to shortened time to market and reduced cost of test.
The ENA series holds up to sixteen measurement channels in a single
instrument state. Independent frequency list, calibration data, measurement
parameters, trace layout, triggering, and limit test are applied in each measurement channel, which acts as if it is an independent network analyzer.
This multi-channel capability eliminates recall time for sequencing multiple
instrument setup states that are often required for multiport devices used in
multi-frequency applications.

The Agilent E5091A multiport test set, combined with the four-port
ENA series network analyzer, is a complete solution for multiport device
measurements. The multiport test set is available in seven and nine-port
configurations. The system is tailored for testing the antenna switch modules
for mobile handsets, particularly those modules with balanced ports, although
it can be used in a wide range of multiport measurement applications. The
system is well suited for both manufacturing and R&D with exceptionally
fast measurement speed and various features that facilitate test automation.
The N4431A four-port electronic calibration (ECal) module is available for
efficient multiport calibration. ECal is a precision, single-connection calibration technique for your vector network analyzer. It dramatically reduces
operation time and number of connections compared to using a mechanical
cal kit to perform a full three- or four-port calibration. With ECal, the operator simply connects the ECal module to the network analyzer and the software controls the rest. Easy to use operation of the multiport system minimizes measurement setup time.

Many of today’s wireless communications and broadband components have
three or more ports. These components require multiple connections for
complete characterization with a network analyzer. However, time-to-market
pressures require that today’s components be tested quickly while maintaining
high levels of accuracy and high repeatability to achieve production volumes.
Network analyzer sweep speed is only one factor that contributes to the overall
throughput that can be achieved in measuring multiport components. The
overall throughput depends on how quickly the component can be connected
and the system can transition from one measurement path to the next and
process that data. Multiport test sets dramatically reduce overall tune and
test times because the DUT only needs to be connected once to test multiple
signal paths. Minimizing the number of connections also reduces operator
fatigue and lowers the chance of connection to the wrong port. In addition,
fewer connections means less wear on cables, connectors, fixtures and DUTs.
A multiport test set is especially valuable in manufacturing applications where
the time required for device connection, handling, and/or configuration is
significantly greater than the test time. In these situations, a test set provides
a solution that supports operators or part-handlers in increasing throughputs.

Microwave PNA series network analyzer with N4421A 50 GHz test set
While ideal balanced components only respond to or produce
differential (out-of-phase) signals, real-world devices also
respond to or produce common-mode (in-phase) signals. Agilent’s
balanced-measurement test systems perform a series of single-ended
stimulus/response measurements on all measurement paths of the
device under test, and then calculate and display differential mode,
common-mode, and mode conversion S-parameters.
Devices such as differential filters and amplifiers, baluns, and
balanced transmission lines that were once difficult to measure
using conventional two-port measuring systems, can now be completely and accurately tested with Agilent’s balanced measurement
solutions. With one set of connections you can test either single-ended
or linear balanced devices across the full RF and microwave
frequency range.

Physical layer test system (PLTS)
•
Physical-layer structures have increasingly become the bottleneck in high-speed
digital system performance. As bus speeds, clock speeds, and link speeds all
push past the gigabit-per-second mark, digital data no longer looks like simple
ones and zeros. In fact, digital data begins to exhibit analog behavior such as
reflections from discontinuities, dispersive loss, crosstalk, and EMI radiation
and susceptibility. Analog analysis can be the key to solving such digital
problems as overshoot, undershoot, ringing, rise-time degradation, pulse
droop, dropout, ground bound and eye closure.
As the combination of digital and analog analysis in several modes of operation
becomes more important, the need for multiple test solutions becomes difficult to manage. A single test solution that can fully characterize high-speed
differential devices while leaving domain and format of the analysis up to
the designer becomes the tool of choice. The four-port network analyzer-based
Physical Layer Test System (PLTS) does just that.
Designing gigabit-per-second devices will require the combination of timedomain and frequency-domain analysis. The Agilent N1900A series Physical
Layer Test System is the premier signal integrity solution for designing and
validating high-speed differential interconnects. PLTS combines frequencydomain, time-domain, and eye diagram analysis to provide a comprehensive
view of device performance. With a single setup to your device, you can
measure all transmission and reflection terms for all possible modes of
operation, including single-ended, differential, common, and mixed modes.

Agilent PLTS systems combine a

tools to provide the highest accuracy possible for measuring inactive single-ended
or differential physical-layer components
such as back-planes, high speed serial
cables, interconnects, and packages.
