Description
Description
The Agilent Z5623AK64 is a 10 MHz to 20 GHz High Power Test Set. When connected to
the N5230A 4-Port PNA-L Series Network Analyzer. High power forward direction
measurements can be made from Test Port 5 to Port 6.
The Z5623AK64 can be configured in several ways. The Test Set Bypass configuration
allows the user to use N5230A 4-Port PNA-L Series Network Analyzer from 10 MHz
to 20 GHz in its normal mode. This mode bypasses the Test Set’s internal couplers through
solid-state switches. The performance of Ports 1 and 4 of the N5230A 4-Port PNA-L Series
Network Analyzer are degraded due to cable and switch loss in the Test Set. In the High
Power mode the Test Set can be configured for specific application needs by the insertion
of high power amplifiers, attenuators, isolators and other signal conditioning accessories.
This will allow high power measurements at RF levels up to 20 Watts (+43 dBm) from
10 MHz to 20 GHz.
The N5230A rear panel Test Set I/O 25 pin D-sub connector controls the Z5623AK64 High
Power Test Set. The N5230A 4-Port PNA-L Series Network Analyzer has an Interface
Control panel that will allow the user to send address and data to the High Power Test Set.
Information about the Interface Control can be found in the PNA on line help menu under
Interface Control. N5230A PNA-L Series Network Analyzer information, Data sheets,
white papers, or manuals can be viewed or printed by visiting our web site at
http://www.agilent.com/find/pna.
The High Power configuration requires an amplifier, attenuators, and isolator and that is
connected to the Test Set’s front panel access source and receiver ports to protect the test
set and network analyzer. Agilent does not supply these accessories with the Z5623AK64.
Currently the PNA using the Interface Control only supports a Thru Response Calibration
in the High Power mode.
The Test Set is shipped from the factory with jumper cables installed on the front.

capability of the Z5623AK64. External components are not supplied with the
Z5623AK64 High Power Test Set.
CAUTION
The Z5623AK64 High Power Test Set is equipped with receiver access ports.
The jumpers can be removed to insert attenuators that will reduce the RF
power to the PNA-L A,B and R channel receivers. Recommended power levels
to the PNA-L receiver ports is –15 dBm. Refer to your PNA-L specifications to
optimize power levels to the receiver ports.
CAUTION
Prior to powering-up the booster amplifier it is highly recommended that the
user verify the RF power levels seen by the various elements of the test setup.
Both the PNA and Test Set power levels must be taken into consideration. At
high power levels, a mistake could permanently damage the instruments.
Accordingly, the following key values are given in Figure 1 on page 8 and
Table 6 on page 7.

Controlling the Test Set
Overview
The Interface Control feature also allows you to send data to control external Test Set
without needing to create a remote program. The PNA manages the timing and required
interface setup.
A unique set of control data can be sent for each channel. In addition, a unique set of
control data can be sent before the channel sweep starts and after the sweep ends.
Interface Control settings can be saved and recalled from the Interface Control dialog box
or with instrument state Save and Recall.
Control data can only be WRITTEN to the interfaces, NOT READ from the interfaces.
Control data is sent in the following order and cannot be changed.
1. GPIB Interface
2. Material Handler Interface
3. Test Set Interface
4. Aux Interface
5. Dwell Time
An instrument Preset will reset all of the fields to their default settings.
NOTE
If an error is encountered when sending Interface Control data, an error
message is displayed on the PNA screen. The Channel Trigger State is set to
Hold. You must fix the condition that caused the error, then change the
Channel Trigger State to its original setting.

setting) Interface Control is disabled and NO data is sent. To send data, the individual
interfaces must also be enabled.
Channel:
Specifies the channel number for dialog settings. Each channel is configured individually.
The list box shows the channels that currently have measurements. There must be at least
one measurement present in order to make the settings.
Channel Label:
Specifies the label to be displayed on the PNA screen during the channel sweep.
Before Sweep Start - After Sweep End Tabs.
NOTE
While using Interface Control, the PNA must be in GPIB System Controller
mode. Once this is complete you must restart the PNA application to go back
to Talker/Listener.
Commands /data for all four interfaces can be sent both Before Sweep Start and After
Sweep End. However, they are configured and enabled on separate tabs of the Interface
Control dialog box. For example, to send GPIB commands both Before and After a PNA
sweep, the Enable Control check box must be selected and commands entered on BOTH
the Before Sweep Start and After Sweep End tabs.
Before Sweep Start:
The data is sent BEFORE the first trace on the channel begins sweeping.
After Sweep End:
The data is sent AFTER the last trace on the channel completes sweeping.

positive integer is allowed. This is used to allow all external devices to settle before
beginning a measurement. An erratic trace could indicate that more settling time is
necessary.
Reset All:
Sets ALL fields on ALL channels to their default values.
Save and Recall
Saves and recalls the contents of the dialog box. If the Interface Control dialog box is
populated with settings during an Instrument State Save, the settings are automatically
recalled with the instrument state settings. Interface control uses an *.xml file type. An
example file is stored on the PNA hard drive. You can recall it into the dialog, or you can
open and edit it with a word processor, such as Word Pad.

High Power Measurements With Z5623AK64
The Z5623AK64 and N5230A 4-Port PNA-L with Option 245 can be configured to measure
high power devices. This ability is useful if the required power for the device under test is
greater than what analyzer can provide, or if the maximum output power from the
amplifier under test exceeds safe input limits for the analyzer. This section describes how
to set up the analyzer and test set to perform high power measurements.
Initial Setup
1. Connect the Test Set to the PNA. See Figure 15. All equipment should be turn off at this
time. Connect the jumpers between the Test Set and the PNA for both 1 and 5, 4 and 6
and the Reference Access ports.
Figure 15
Setup Configuration
2. Remove the jumpers on the front panel of the Test Set if the Z5623AK64 is in the
shipped mode configuration (all the jumpers are still on).
3. Connect the booster amplifiers RF Input connector to the SOURCE P5 IN access
connector on the front panel of the Z5623AK64. Ensure that the amplifier is turned Off
at this time.

4. Place an isolator or attenuator between the SOURCE P6 IN and SOURCE P6 OUT on
the port 2 side. The isolators placement is important to ensure that the signal is
attenuated into SOURCE P6 IN. The reverse attenuation or isolation factor of the
isolator should be 20 dB or greater.

Determining Power Levels
Before continuing, save this state and set it up as the User Preset. The User Preset
Conditions can be found in the PNA Series Network Analyzer Help System.
Press [Menu/Dialog] then tab to Help > Network Analyzer Help. Type in User Preset. The
final state can then be re-saved as the User Preset to avoid an over power condition from
the factory preset. To find the User Preset press [Menu/Dialog] then tab to System, select
User Preset and check User Preset Enable. Click Save current state as User Preset > OK.
5. Turn On the analyzer and Test Set and reduce the power level to –20 dBm by pressing
[Menu/Dialog] then tab to Channel and select Power. Enter [–20] in the Test Port
Power entry area. Port Power Coupled should be checked to ensure that ports 1 and 2
power levels are the same. Un-Couple ports should be used when adjusting the S12
power level to a different power level from Port 1.
6. Set the Z5623AK64 Test Set so the external booster amplifier is in the RF path. See
Test Set I/O Interface Commands Table 10 on page 30 and Table 11 on page 31 to set
the Test Set switches to external. This will place the booster amplifier in the RF path.
7. Turn On the booster amplifier.
8. Using a high power meter and sensor, measure the output power from the booster
amplifier RF Output.
NOTE
Additional attenuation may have to be added between the coupler and the
power meter depending on the power used.
9. Verify the gain of the booster amplifier(s). For example; if the analyzer output power
level was set to –20 dBm and the output power measured from the open end of the
coupler was –5 dBm, the gain of the booster amplifier would be +15 dB.

Selecting Power Ranges and Attenuator Settings
20. Select a PNA power range that will not exceed the maximum estimated power level,
but will force the DUT into compression. For example; if your booster amplifier has a
gain of +15 dB and the DUT will compress if supplied with +15 dBm, then adjust the
analyzer’s output power not to exceed +0 dBm. Select [Menu/Dialog] then tab to
Channel, select Power > uncheck Auto and enter [10] into the entry area. The Port
Power Coupled can be verified to ensure that Port 1 and 2 power levels are the same, or
uncoupled if Port 1 and 2 power level requirement are different.
21. Estimate the maximum amount of gain that could be provided by the DUT and as a
result, the maximum amount of power that could be received by Test Port 6 when the
DUT is in compression. For example; if a DUT with a maximum gain of +10 dB receives
an input of +10 dBm, the maximum amount of power that could be received by Test
Port 6 is +20 dBm. An isolator or attenuator may be required depending on the amount
of power at Test Port 6. An isolator can be placed between the Test Set’s SOURCE P6
OUT and SOURCE P6 IN to protect the Test Set and the PNA. The isolators placement
is important to ensure that the signal is attenuated looking into SOURCE P6 IN. The
reverse attenuation or isolation factor of the isolator should be 20 dB or greater.
22. Calculate the amount of attenuation needed so that the optimum PNA receiver power
level of –15 dBm is not exceeded. Refer to your PNA specifications to optimize power
levels to the receiver ports.
In following example it will be necessary to take the following into consideration:
• Measured at the Test Set’s REF ARM = –2 dBm.
• Estimated compression power = –2 dBm
• The optimum PNA receiver power level is –15 dBm.
• Loss thru the REF switch and cables in the Test Set is approximately 3 dB.
With the previous points in mind, the amount of attenuation can be calculated from the
following equations:
• Attenuator REF ARM setting = –2 dBm – (–15 dBm) – (–3 dB) = 10 dB
• REF ARM attenuator value = 10 dB
23. Place the attenuator(s) on Test Set’s REF ARM to the value calculated in step 22.
24. Turn On the booster amplifier.
25. Measure the output power from the Test Set’s REF ARM, using a high power meter
and sensor.
26. Verify that the power measured in the previous step is within the acceptable limits
(–12 dBm the RCVR REF IN).
27. Calculate the amount of attenuation needed so that the optimum PNA receiver power
level of –15 dBm is not exceeded. Refer to your PNA specifications to optimize power
levels to the receiver ports.

• The coupling factor of Test Port 6 is 13 dB.
• The optimum receiver power level is –15 dBm.
• Loss thru the D RCVR switch and cables in the Test Set is approximately 3 dB
With the previous points kept in mind, the amount of attenuation can be calculated from
the following equations:
• Attenuator D ARM setting = +40 dBm – 13 dB – (–15 dBm) (–3 dB) = 45 dB
• D ARM attenuator value = 45 dB

Test Set Internal Configurations
The Z5623AK64 can be internally configured to allow different application requirements.
This section describe the Test Set’s internal configurations.
There are two basic mode configurations.
• Bypass
• High Power
Bypass
The bypass mode sets the Test Set’s internal switches so that the source, receiver and
reference are all directed to the PNA. Figure 19 shows each switch path. Each switch has
been set so information received from the PNA is directed back to the PNA. All 4 ports of
the PNA are operational. Figure 20 on page 43 shows the paths of the PNA and Test Set.

Specifications for the Z5623AK64 High Power Test Set are nominal. System performance
for the PNA and Test Set are not provided. A functional certificate is only offered for the
Z5623AK64.
NOTE
Nominal specifications are based on 1 to 2 unit's performance.
NOTE
This Test Set, when connected to a PNA, will degrade the performance of the
test ports that the Test Set interconnects to. The internal solid-state switch
paths reduce Test Port power and power to the receiver ports. This affects not
only the test port power of the PNA and also reduces dynamic range. Test
Port power of the PNA will be reduced as much as 10 dB and power to the
receivers will be reduced by as much as 10 dB. This will decrease the dynamic
range by 20 dB.

Theory of Operation
RF Components
SW1 through SW5
SW1 through SW5 are all solid-state switches. Frequency range is 45 MHz to 20GHz.
SW1-Source to 1 and 5
SW1 of the Test Set directs the port 1 Source Out RF signal from the PNA by means of a
jumper cable from the PNA port 1 and Test Set port SOURCE OUT access ports. When the
Test Set is in the Bypass or Internal mode, SW1 directs the Source Out from the PNA to
the Test Set CPLR THRU access port. The Test Set CPLR THRU access port is jumper
cabled back to the PNA Port 1 CPLR THRU access port and provides the source output to
Port 1 of the PNA. When the Test Set is in the high power or external mode, SW1 directs
the Source Out to the Test Set’s reference and test Port 5 couplers. This provides the source
output for Port 5 of the Test Set.
SW2-Receiver A
SW2 directs the A Receiver signal from the PNA by means of a jumper cable from the PNA
and Test Set RCVR A IN access ports. When the Test Set is in the Bypass or Internal mode,
SW2 directs the A Receiver signal path from the PNA to the Test Set’s CPLR ARM access
port. The Test Set CPLR ARM access port is jumper cabled back to the PNA Port 1 CPLR
ARM access port and provides the signal path from the PNA test Port 1 coupled arm. When
the Test Set is in the high power or external mode, SW2 directs the A Receiver to the Test
Set. This provides the signal path from the test Port 5 Coupled Arm.
SW3-Source to 4 and 6
SW3 of the Test Set directs the Port 4 Source Out RF signal from the PNA by means of a
jumper cable from the PNA Port 4 and Test Set port SOURCE OUT access ports. When the
Test Set is in the Bypass or Internal mode, SW3 directs the Source Out from the PNA to
the Test Set CPLR THRU access port. The Test Set CPLR THRU access port is jumper
cabled back to the PNA Port 4 CPLR THRU access port, and provides the source output to
Port 4 of the PNA.When the Test Set is in the high power or external mode, SW3 directs
the Source Out to the Test Set’s reference and test Port 6 couplers. This provides the source
output for Port 6 of the Test Set.
SW4-Receiver D
SW4 directs the D Receiver signal path from the PNA by means of a jumper cable from the
PNA and Test Set RCVR D IN access ports. When the Test Set is in the Bypass or Internal
mode, SW4 directs the D Receiver signal path from the PNA to the Test Set’s CPLR ARM
access port. The Test Set CPLR ARM access port is jumper cabled back to the PNA Port 4
CPLR ARM access port and provides the signal path from the PNA test Port 4 Coupled
Arm. When the Test Set is in the high power or external mode, SW4 directs the D Receiver
to the Test Set. This provides the signal path from test Port 6 Coupled Arm.

Reference Coupler
The reference coupler provides the REF channel a signal when the Test Set is in high
power mode. This removes the effects the amplifier may induce on the signal such as drift
and gain. This reference is only provided in the forward direction only P5 => P6. It can also
be used making measurements from P5 to Port 2, 3 and 4 on the PNA. When the PNA is in
the reverse measurement parameter capability the PNA internal REF must be used and
the Test Set SW5 must be set to Bypass the Reference Coupler.
Test Port Couplers P5 and P6
The test port couplers are 3.5 mm male. The couplers can handle up to 40 watts of power to
the test and coupler thru ports up to 20 GHz. These ports are use to measure the DUT for
high power.
Test Set Interface Control
Refer to the Test Set Interface Schematic while reading the following descriptions:
The Test Set I/O Interface board has Six sections. The first section is the Test Set Interface
BD input. This section handles the Addressing, Data and Read/Write TTL instructions
from the PNA Test Set I/O. A DB-25 female connector (J1 on the Test Set I/O Interface
board) is located on the rear panel of the Test Set and receives external control commands
from the PNA. All inputs are ESD protected by CR4 and CR5 on the Test Set Interface BD.
The PNA provides the appropriate timing signals needed for strobing the address and data
lines. Below shows the Test Set Interface connector for the Z5623AK64. Pin numbers and
locations are shown with a description of the pins used to control the Test Set.

Theory of Operation
The high power Test Set is activated when the PNA sends a write command with the
correct address. The address tells the Interface BD if the Test Set is being activated and
which control section of the Interface BD to be used. After addressing the Test Set, PNA
sends data and is left in the state they were issued. After a read command, PNA lines
AD0-AD12 are left in input mode. While in this mode the Test Set sends it address to the
PNA. AD0 - AD12 are addressable with in the high power Test Set. AD0 - AD12 can be
configured within the Test Set to send the PNA a unique Test Set ID.
Below is the Test Set Read/Write figure showing how the PNA communicates (hand

Z5623A Option K64
Theory of Operation
The Test Set address depends on the input Test Set Select Bits. From the PNA, select bits
are tied to ground. The first Test Set that connects to the PNA Test Set I/O connector is
issued address 0. The Test Set uses these bits to determine if being addressed or not. The
Test Set’s Test Set Interface BD compares the select bits to the address from the PNA Test
Set I/O. When the select bits match AD0-AD3 the Test Set becomes active. If the select bits
do not match AD0-AD3 the Test Set is not active. The PNA address/data is 13 bits
AD0-AD12. The Test Set address inputs is limited to 7 bits AD0-AD6. Address bits
AD0-AD3 are dedicated to the Test Set address. Address bits AD4-AD6 determines what
section the Test Set will communicate too.
The Pass Thru Interface connector on the rear panel of the Test Set passes the
Address/Data, Strobes, and Interrupts from the PNA through the Test Set I/O Interface to
the Pass Thru Interface. The Test Set Select bits are not directly pass through. The
selected bits are received by the Test Set through the Test Set I/O Interface and
incremented by the Address Val chip U40 and passed to the Pass Thru Interface. This sets
the next Test Set address. Maximum number of Test Set’s address allowed is 15.

U40
When the Test Set’s (J1) Test Set I/O Interface connector receives a command from the
PNA, a Programmable Array Logic (PAL) IC U40 “Address Valid” interprets the address of
the command. The Address Valid first determines if the command address AD0-AD3
matches the Select bits address. If the two address match the AOK bit goes high and
signals the Test Set to be active and the address/data received is valid.
U40 also increments PSEL0-PSEL3 bits to the Pass Thru Interface. This is done by
reading the Test Set I/O incoming Test Set select bits from either the PNA or Pass Thru
from another Test Set.
U40 also reads AD4-AD6 when the AOK is high. A1-A4 is an address sent to the U2 “Data
Valid” Programmable Array Logic (PAL) IC. This information determines what section of
the Test Set Interface board is to be written too.

Z5623A Option K64
Theory of Operation
U41
Programmable Array Logic (PAL) IC U41 “Data Valid” interprets the address of A1-A4 and
if the command is either a read or write. The Data Valid first determines if AOK is true. If
AOK is true, U41 determines if the PNA is requesting or sending data to the Test Set by
the state of RLW. When RLW is true the PNA is requesting information or read from the
Test Set. When RLW is not true the PNA is send or writing data to the test.
The LDS provides the strobe to enable the outputs for WE1 though WE4.
When a read command is received the Data Valid PAL output pin RE enables U52 and U53
a tri-state buffer to set the AD0-AD12 data lines set by the S1 and S2 switches so the PNA
can read the address. This is a unique address that the PNA can use to identify the Test
Set with. This is for future use, but the address should be set so the first 8 bits AD0
through AD7 are set to decimal 83 or binary 01010011. This equals ascii character “S” for
specials. The last 6 bits AD8 through AD13 will be set in binary only to indicate a order
sequence the option. In this case this is the first option so the address will be set to decimal
value 0 or binary 000000.
When a write command is received the Data Valid PAL A1-A4 are received and read from
U40. These address lines determine what section or sections of the Test Set I/O Interface
BD are to receive new information. The WE1 through WE4 are the write enable lines that
enable sections 1-4. When the WE1-WE4 are high, data D0-D7 are past to the sections.
WE1 enables section 1, WE2 section 2, WE3 section 3, and WE4 section 4.
U42
Programmable Array Logic (PAL) IC U42 “Data” pass eight data bits AD0-AD7 to all
sections. Data is only passed when AOK is true, RLW is false, and when LDS is strobed.
The outputs from this PAL are data lines D0 through D7 which are feed to sections 1-4.
Currently this is being used as a latching circuit, but in the future this could be used to
manipulate D I/O lines.
U43
Programmable Array Logic (PAL) IC U43 “LEDS” provides front panel stimulus. U43
deciphers AD0 through AD4 data bits along with a write enable bits WE1-WE4 to indicate
the Test Set’s internal state by LEDs on the front panel.
Section 1 through 4
Sections 1 through 4 are latches. These latches hold the data when the write enable WE is
false or pass the data when their corresponding WE line is true.
