Agilent Technologies 8510C Network Router User Manual

Agilent 8510C Network Analyzer Family
45 MHz to 110 GHz
Configuration Guide
The Agilent Technologies 8510C is a modular
family of compatible products. For flexibility in
specifying a solution that meets your exact needs,
a system is typically ordered as separate line
items. For those who wish ordering convenience,
complete bundled systems are available. Whether
ordering individual components or a bundled system, all 8510C network analyzers include one-year,
on-site service. For systems built from individual
components, installation may be ordered separately. A PC running BASIC Rev 6.3 or higher
under Windows® (3.1/95/NT) is recommended
for installation and service.
Complete systems
Agilent 8510XF family 110 GHz single sweep
systems (45 MHz to 110 GHz)
The 8510XF family has two models which are
complete single-connection, single-sweep vector
network analyzer systems that offer S-parameter
measurements over an ultra-broadband frequency
in a 1.0 mm coaxial connector. The broadest frequency model covers 45 MHz to 110 GHz. A lower
frequency model is available covering 45 MHz to
85 GHz. Both systems are designed to facilitate
easy connection to wafer probe hardware while
still preserving excellent RF measurement performance. In addition, the system can be used to make
coaxial measurements (to interface to a coaxial fixture or a coaxial DUT) using the same millimeter
head configuration.

Measurement accessories
There are measurement accessories for seven
device connector types: 7 mm, 3.5 mm, 2.92 mm,
2.4 mm, 1.85 mm, 1.0 mm, and Type-N. Calibration
kits include standards that are required for vector
error correction. Verification kits include standards used to verify system performance specifications. Test port return cables extend the ports of
the test set and connect to the device under test.
Agilent 85130X adapter sets convert test set ports
to the same connector type (acting as a test port
saver) or to a different connector type.
7
Calibration kits
Error correction requires that the systematic
errors in the measurement system be characterized
by measuring known devices (standards) over the
frequency range of interest with the process of calibration. All calibration kits contain standards
used for this purpose. The standards in the 3.5 mm,
2.4 mm, and Type-N calibration kits use the precision slotless connector (PSC-3.5, PSC-2.4, and
PSC-N). Unless otherwise noted all coaxial calibration kits include connector gauges and a torque
wrench. Option 002 provides calibration kit data
on magnetic tape for use with the 8510A/B (not
available with 85059A).

Test port cables and adapters
Test port cables and adapter sets are available for
various connector types. Special test port adapter
sets convert the rugged ports of the network analyzer test set to the desired connector interface.
Each kit contains two adapters, one male and one
female. Both the cables and the test port adapters
have one special female connector which is
designed to connect directly to the 3.5 mm test
port (2.4 mm for 8517B). This side of the cable or
adapter can only be connected to the test set port
and cannot be mated to a standard 3.5 mm (or
2.4 mm) male connector. Choose one of the configurations shown.
Configuration A. This cable arrangement is for applications where the device under test is connected
directly to the test set port. This setup offers the
best mechanical rigidity for device connection. To
adapt the test set port (port 1) to the device under
test, choose the appropriate special adapter set. In
addition to converting the test port to the desired
interface, these adapters also function as “test port
savers” which protect the test set from damage and
wear due to heavy use.
