Technical Specifications and
Characteristics
Definitions for specifications
Temperatures referred to in this document are defined as
follows:
–– Full temperature range = Individual module temperature
of 15 to 75 °C, as reported by the module, and
environment temperature of 0 to 55 °C.
–– Controlled temperature range = Individual module
temperature of 36 to 50 °C, as reported by the module,
and environment temperature of 20 to 30 °C.
Specifications describe the warranted performance of
calibrated instruments. Data represented in this document
are specifications under the following conditions unless
otherwise noted.
–– Calibrated instruments have been stored for a minimum
of 2 hours within the full temperature range
–– 30 minute warm-up time
–– Calibration cycle maintained
–– When used with Keysight M9300A frequency reference
and Keysight interconnect cables
Characteristics describe product performance that is useful
in the application of the product, but that is not covered by
the product warranty. Characteristics are often referred to
as Typical or Nominal values and are italicized.
–– Typical describes characteristic performance, which
80% of instruments will meet when operated within the
controlled temperature range.
–– Nominal describes representative performance that is
useful in the application of the product when operated
within the controlled temperature range.
–– 95th percentile values indicate the breadth of the
population (approx. 2 s of performance tolerances
expected to be met in 95 percent of the cases with a
95 percent confidence, for any ambient temperature in
the range of 20 to 30 °C. In addition to the statistical
observations of a sample of instruments, these values
include the effects of the uncertainties of external
calibration references. These values are not warranted.
These values are updated occasionally if a significant
change in the statistically observed behavior of
production instruments is observed.
Recommended best practices in use
–– Use slot blockers and EMC filler panels in empty module
slots to ensure proper operating temperatures. Keysight
chassis and slot blockers optimize module temperature
performance and reliability of test.
–– Set chassis fan to high at environmental temperatures
above 45 °C.
Conversion type operating range
Conversion types
Frequency range
Auto
9 kHz to 8.4, 14, 18 or 27 GHz

Single low

Additional information
–– Mixer level offset modifies the receiver gain prior to the
first mixer of the receiver. A negative setting improves
distortion (i.e., TOI) at the cost of noise performance
(i.e., DANL). A positive setting improves noise
performance at the cost of distortion.
–– The PeakToAverage property is used with expected
RF Power property to optimize level settings in the
Downconverter. Set this to the ratio, in dB, of the peak
power to the average power. The Downconverter uses
this value to optimize mixer level, IF gain, and ADC
clip level.
–– IF Level Offset (dB) provides additional adjustment of
IF power level. Positive values reduce noise. Negative
values reduce distortion.
–– Digitizer Level Offset (dB) provides additional adjustment
of Downconverter IF power to the digitizer. Positive values
increase power to the digitizer. Negative values decrease
power to the digitizer.
–– All graphs contain measured data from one unit and
are representative of product performance within the
controlled temperature range unless otherwise noted.
–– Default conditions apply, unless otherwise noted.
–– The specifications contained in this document are
subject to change.

To maximize the M9300A’s 100 MHz outputs, especially for multi-channel configurations, an SMB T-type adapter
(not shown) can be used to split the signal between the M9214A 100 MHz In and the M9308A 100 MHz In. For more

28. Large signals can cause the analyzer to incorrectly measure on-screen signals because of two-tone gain compression.
This specification tells how large an interfering signal must be in order to cause a 0.1 dB change in a low power signal.
Tone spacing = 100 kHz, measuring a –30 dBm signal for the low power tone. Expected input level = 0 dBm, Mixer level offset = 0 dB.

Keysight IO
library
The IO library suite offers a single entry point for connection to
the most common instruments including AXIe, PXI, GPIB, USB,
Ethernet/LAN, RS-232, and VXI test instruments from Keysight
and other vendors. It automatically discovers interfaces, chassis,
and instruments. The graphical user interface allows you to search
for, verify, and update IVI instrument and soft front panel drivers for
modular and traditional instruments. The IO suite safely installs in
side-by-side mode with NI I/O software.
Free software download at
www.keysight.com/find/iosuite
The PXI module includes a soft front panel (SFP), a software-based
graphical user interface (GUI) which enables the instrument’s
capabilities from your PC.
