Definitions
Specification (spec.)
Warranted performance. Specifications include guardbands to account for the expected statistical performance
distribution, measurement uncertainties, and changes in performance due to environmental conditions. The following
conditions must be met:
 FieldFox has been turned on at least 90 minutes
 FieldFox is within its calibration cycle
 Storage or operation at 25°C ±5 °C range (unless otherwise stated)
Typical (typ.)
Expected performance of an average unit over a 20 °C to 30 °C temperature range after being at ambient temperature
for two hours, unless otherwise indicated; does not include guardbands. It is not covered by the product warranty. The
FieldFox must be within its calibration cycle.
Nominal (nom.)
A general, descriptive term or design parameter. It is not tested, and not covered by the product warranty.
Calibration
The process of measuring known standards to characterize an instrument's systematic (repeatable) errors.
Corrected (residual)
Indicates performance after error correction (calibration). It is determined by the quality of calibration standards and
how well "known" they are, plus system repeatability, stability, and noise.
Uncorrected (raw)
Indicates instrument performance without error correction. The uncorrected performance affects the stability of a
calibration.

combination of horizontal, sloping lines, or discrete data points. Each trace can have its
own limit line.
Limit Lines can be Fixed, Relative to center frequency and reference level, and can be
built from existing traces.
Time Domain (Option 010)
Using time domain, data from transmission or reflection measurements in the frequency domain are converted to the
time domain. The time-domain response shows the measured parameter value versus time.
Description
Information
Time stimulus modes
Low-pass step
Similar to a traditional time domain reflectometer (TDR) stimulus waveform, Low-pass
step is used to measure low-pass devices. The frequency-domain data should extend
from DC (extrapolated value) to a higher value.
Low-pass impulse
Also used to measure low-pass devices
Bandpass impulse
Stimulates a pulsed RF signal and is used to measure the time-domain response of
band-limited devices
Windowing
Gating
Windowing is used to filter the frequency-domain data and thereby reduce overshoot
and ringing in the time-domain response.
Gating is used to selectively remove reflection or transmission time-domain responses.
When converted back to the frequency domain, the effects of the responses outside
the gate are removed.

Independent Signal Source or Tracking Generator
The independent source or tracking generator is included with either spectrum analyzer option. The source can be
used in continuous wave (CW) or stimulus/response (S/R) mode. In CW mode, the source frequency is independent of
the receiver frequency. The source can be tuned to a frequency that is different from the receiver. In
stimulus/response mode, the source operates the same as a traditional tracking generator - the receiver tracks the
source.

FieldFox's pulse measurement option can be used to characterize RF pulses such as those used in radar and electronic
warfare systems. Measurements are made using FieldFox and Agilent's UBS peak power sensors.
Performance specifications such as frequency, dynamic range and minimum pulse width depend on the peak power
sensor. Supported peak power sensors: www.agilent.com/find/usbsensorsforfieldfox

Remote Control Capability (Option 030)
Option 030 adds remote control capability to FieldFox analyzers, so that FieldFox can be controlled via an iOS device. The
FieldFox app, running on the iOS device, combined with Option 030 on the FieldFox analyzer provides full control of the
instrument from a remote location. The app emulates the front panel of FieldFox, so users can press the FieldFox hardkeys
or softkeys using their iPhone or iPad, and make measurements remotely.
iOS device requirements
iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch
iOS of 5.1 or higher
A WiFi or 3G/4G connection
The FieldFox app communicates with FieldFox via a network connection, so both the iOS device and FieldFox need to be
on a network where both devices can reach the other. For example, a company intranet or a site installation using a
wireless router. FieldFox can directly be connected to a LAN cable, or if wired LAN is not available, a user supplied
wireless router can be configured to work with FieldFox.
FieldFox app without Option 030
The FieldFox app can be installed on an iOS device independent of the presence of Option 030 on the analyzer. Without
Option 030, users can view the live display screen of their FieldFox remotely, but cannot control the instrument. With 030
purchased and installed on their FieldFox, users can both view and control their FieldFox.
Option 030 and the FieldFox app are not applicable to Android, BlackBerry, or Windows phone/tablet devices..

1 Samples of this product have been type tested in accordance with the Agilent Environmental Test Manual (ETM) for
outdoor equipment (OE) and verified to be robust against the environmental stresses of storage, transportation and end
use ; those stresses include but are not limited to temperature, humidity, shock, vibration, altitude and power line
conditions.
2 Charge and discharge temperatures are internal temperatures of the battery as measured by a sensor embedded in the
battery. The Battery screen displays temperature information. To access the screen, select System , Service Diagnostics,

Supported Cal Kits
The following list of calibration kits are loaded in the FieldFox. You can add additional calibration kits to the FieldFox using
FieldFox Data Link Software.
The basic 50-ohm QuickCal does not require cal standards. However, for higher accuracy, perform QuickCal with a load.
75-ohm QuickCal does require a 75-ohm load.
