Agilent ESA-L series portable
spectrum analyzers have a remarkable four-millisecond RF sweep time
and virtual real-time measurement
updates to the display or through
GPIB interface. With excellent accuracy and easy, reliable operation,
the ESA-L series is full of innovations, such as continuously phaselocked synthesizer, all at a
surprisingly low cost.
