Frequency
Range: 0.00005 Hz to 500 MHz
Resolution: +/- LSD +/- ((Noise Trigger Error) / (Gate Time)) x Frequency
Lease significant digit (LSD) is nine digits per second of measurement time.
With DISPLAY POSITION switch in AUTO, the LSD error is +/-1 count if the most significant digit (MSD) is 1
through 4, and +/-2 counts if the MSD is 5 through 9.
Accuracy: Resolution +/- Timebase Error x Frequency
Measurement Time: When in MIN the GATE TIME is 50 ns or one period of the input signal, whichever is greater.
When the GATE TIME is set to one of the decade steps, the counter will reset if a stop trigger is not reached within
3.5 times the GATE TIME setting. Decade GATE TIME settings range from 100 ns to 1000s.
When using EXT GATE, the measurement cycle time consists of the GATE TIME divided by the duty cycle of the
EXT GATE signal plus the time required to reach the next STOP trigger level after the end of the last EXT GATE
pulse.
General
Display: 11-digit LED display and sign. Decimal point is positioned with DISPLAY POSITION control or positioned
after the first, second or third most significant digit if DISPLAY POSITION is in AUTO.
Sample rate: rate continuously variable from <0.1s to <5s with front-panel control. In HOLD position the last reading
is maintained until the counter is reset or an EXT ARM signal is applied.
External arm input: counter can be armed by a -1.0V (-5.0V max) signal applied to the rear panel 50 ohm input for
greater than 500 ns. Minimum time between EXT ARM and acceptance of start pulse is <1 us (typical).
Operating temperature: 0 degrees C to 50 degrees C.
Power requirements: 100/120/220/240V rms +5% -10% 48 to 66 Hz, maximum power 250 VA.
Size: 132.6 mm H x 425 mm W x 495 mm D (5.22 in x 16.75 in x 19.95 in); 17kg (37 lb).
Output
Programmable over the GPIB, the 5345A can transfer more than 9000 measurements per second over the bus. The fast
throughput saves time and reduces cost for systems applications.
Flexible Gating
For applications requiring more detailed information than the average frequency in a burst, the 5345A can accept your
choice of measurement gates. External gates as short as 20 ns can be used for profiling the frequency content of a chirp
radar, or characterizing the post-tuning drift of voltage-controlled oscillators.
Automatic Averaging
The automatic averaging algorithm improves accuracy. By lengthening the gate time, you can reduce the effect of jitter
and noise on your measurements.
High-Stability Timebase
The built-in timebase ages at the rate of 5 x 10 e-10 per day, extending the calibration cycle to two years while
maintaining kHz accuracy for a 20 GHz measurement.
