level, distortion, SINAD and signal-to-noise ratio. It also includes an audio source providing low distortion signals over
wide frequencies and level ranges.
The 1121A incorporates selectable output impedances of 50, 150 and 600 ohms, 16 volt RMS output, additional 0.3
mV full scale measurement range, and quasi-peak detection. The 1121A Audio Analyzer also tunes and manages
auto-ranging automatically for maximum accuracy and resolution. Distortion, frequency response, AC and DC voltage
measurements require only one single keystroke. The instrument is ideally suited for stimulus response applications
because of an on-board low-distortion audio source. Internal control of the source and analyzer allows for swept
measurements.
For the accurate measurement of complex waveforms and noise, the audio analyzer uses true RMS average or
quasi-peak detection. Accurate distortion measurements can be made to –90 dB (0.003%) between 20 Hz and 20
kHz. Over the same frequency range, flatness measurements are possible to 0.05 dB (0.5%). The audio analyzer
precision reciprocal counter gives fast and accurate characterization of audio frequencies.
Features and Benefits:
• Frequency range from 10 Hz to 200 kHz
• Measurement level from 300 μV to 300 V (full scale)
• Low-distortion audio source for testing systems, amplifiers, receivers and components
• Instant recall of up to 99 complete front panel setups

8201A Modulation Analzyer
8201A Modulation Analyzer
High-Precision Analyzer for AM/FM Radio Technology
The 8201A modulation analyzer offers a unique combination of measurements including AM, FM and PM,
Carrier level and frequency, Signal, noise and distortion power (SINAD), thus eliminating the need for different
discrete items of test equipment. With a carrier level resolution of 0.01dB, a frequency resolution of 10Hz and an
accuracy of 1% AM and FM modulation measurements, the 8201 is well suited for the most demanding requirements.
Modulation is detected using peak, while residuals are measured using RMS and referenced to a specific level. These
values are displayed in %, dB or quasi-peak, and the highest values are stored using the peak-hold function. Signal
frequency and level can be acquired automatically or input via the keyboard or remote command. The 8201 is a
cost-effective measurement tool for an ATE system, signal generator calibration or mobile radio production testing.
Features and Benefits:
• Carrier frequency range: 100 kHz to 2.5 GHz
• 0 to 500 kHz FM deviation to 1% accuracy
• 0 to 99% AM to 1% accuracy
• 0 to 500 radians to 3% accuracy
• Audio distortion range: 0.01% to 100% THD or 0 to 80 dB SINAD
• Remote control through GPIB
