Test port output specifications
High power in N991xA and N992xA refers to the target output power level of the analyzer when the Power Setting is set to High. As an
example, if you have a frequency sweep from 3 to 6.5 GHz, the analyzer will achieve the power level of -1 dBm across the band.
Low power level for N991xA and N992xA analyzers is a flat -45 dBm across the whole frequency band, and is the output of the analyzer
when the Power Setting is set to Low.
_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
High power in the N995xA refers to the target output power level of the analyzer when the Power Setting is set to High. As an example,
if you have a frequency sweep from 39 to 46 GHz, the analyzer will achieve the power level of -2 dBm across the band.
Low power level for N995xA analyzers is the lowest power level that can be set and is the output of the analyzer when the Power Setting
is set to Low.
Max leveled power in the N995xA refers to the maximum leveled (flattened) power that can be achieved across the designated frequency
range. For example, if you have a frequency sweep from 32 to 44 GHz, and set up the analyzer to measure all four S-parameters, needing
both ports 1 and 2, the maximum power the analyzer can be set to is -6 dBm.

CAT and VNA mode Calibrations
FieldFox analyzers offer three tiers of calibrations, thus providing users with different levels of calibration effort and accuracy.
CalReady
CalReady is the most basic calibration. Every FieldFox is calibrated at the factory, at test ports 1 and 2, at room temperature. This
calibration is stored in the instrument and is sufficient for quick verification of device performance, assuming the device under test
(DUT) is connected directly to the test ports. CalReady can be applied either as an “enhanced response CalReady” or a “2-port
CalReady.” The default setting is 2-port CalReady, so correction is applied to both ports. A user preference allows user to change the
CalReady methodology to enhanced response CalReady.
A 30-minute warm-up period is recommended.
If CalReady is the basis for most measurements, it is highly recommended that the annual cal cycle be followed, as the CalReady
calibration will be updated during the annual cal cycle.
QuickCal
QuickCal is the next level of calibration. QuickCal uses internal standards and a subset of external standards, and builds on the
factory-created CalReady. Users can perform QuickCal with a load or without a load. A QuickCal calibration with a load yields a more
accurate measurement.
Important note: QuickCal is most accurate for DUTs with 7/16 and Type-N connectors and measurement uncertainties are provided
for frequencies ≤ 18 GHz. Accuracy is reduced for DUTs with 3.5 mm (m), SMA (m), or other male coaxial connectors; performance
is unspecified. QuickCal is not recommended for DUTs with 3.5 mm (f), SMA (f), or other similar female connectors. QuickCal is not
applicable to waveguide.
A 30-minute warm-up period is recommended.
If QuickCal is the basis for most measurements, it is highly recommended that the annual cal cycle be followed, as QuickCal builds on
CalReady and CalReady data are updated during the annual cal cycle.

Cable and Antenna Analyzer and Vector Network Analyzer (continued)
Standard calibrations
Standard calibrations are the most accurate calibrations offered in FieldFox. FieldFox’s calibration engine is based on Keysight’s
flagship PNA calibration engine, and as such, offers many of the standard calibrations. FieldFox supports both coaxial and waveguide
calibrations. The table below lists the commonly used calibrations.
A 60-minute warm-up period is recommended for standard calibrations. For ultimate in stability and accuracy, a 90-minute warm-up
period is recommended.
Frequency response
Open Response
Short Response
Thru Response
With and without isolation
Simultaneous magnitude and phase correction of frequency response errors for either reflection or
transmission measurements. Isolation corrects for crosstalk errors.
1-port OSL (Port 1)
1-port OSL (Port 2)
SSL (for waveguide)
Open, short, and load
Traditional 1-port calibration for reflection measurements. Corrects for directivity, source match, and
frequency response errors.
For waveguide calibrations, depending on the calibration kit definition, this is presented as a short,
offset short and load calibration.
Enhanced response (also known as one-path,
two-port)
Forward Enhanced Response
Reverse Enhanced Response
Corrects for frequency response and source match. Partial correction for load match for low-loss
reciprocal devices.
QSOLT (2-port)
QSOLT or Quick short-open-load-thru is FieldFox’s default recommended calibration for insertable
devices. Full 12-term error correction. Requires fewer connections, compared to traditional SOLT (4
compared to 7). Corrects for directivity, source match, reflection frequency response, load match, and
transmission frequency response.
Full 2-port (unknown thru calibration)
FieldFox’s default recommended calibration for non-insertable devices. Full 12-term error correction.
Beneficial for charac¬terizing non-insertable devices such as Type-N to 3.5 mm, or female-female
devices. Corrects for directivity, source match, reflection frequency response, load match, and
transmission frequency response.
TRL
TRL or thru-reflect-line compensates for directivity, reflection, and transmission frequency response in
both the forward and reverse directions.
** Note: FieldFox does not offer the traditional SOLT calibration. Instead, it offers the more accurate Full 2-port (unknown thru), and also QSOLT.
ECal
FieldFox supports all Keysight USB ECal modules, both standard and value-line ECals.
FieldFox’s Guided Calibration Wizard
FieldFox’s calibration wizard recommends a calibration type and calibration kit based on selected parameters and connector types.
Alternatively, users can select their own calibration type and calibra¬tion kit. FieldFox’s calibration wizard ensures a valid calibration
selection.
Interpolation Error Correction
With any type of accuracy enhancement applied, interpolated mode recalculates the error coefficients when the test frequencies
are changed. The number of points can be increased or decreased and the start/stop frequencies can be changed, but the resulting
frequency span must be a subset of the original calibration frequency span.

The performance listed in TDR cable measurements, VNA time domain, mixed-mode S-parameters and vector voltmeter sections
applies to the capabilities available in the following models:
–– FieldFox RF & microwave analyzers: N9913A, N9914A, N9915A, N9916A, N9917A, N9918A
N9950A, N9951A, N9952A
–– FieldFox microwave vector network analyzers: N9925A, N9926A, N9927A, N9928A
See FieldFox Configuration Guide for option information. Many capabilities listed in this Data Sheet require options.
TDR Cable Measurements (Option 215)
The TDR cable option adds time domain reflectometry (TDR) measurements to FieldFox’s CAT mode. FieldFox’s TDR measurements are
based on an inverse Fourier transform of the frequency-domain data. TDR measurements are useful in not only identifying the location
of faults along cables, but also the nature of the fault. Resistive, inductive and capacitive faults will each have a different response.
These differences help engineers and technicians trouble-shoot line faults.
Measurements: TDR (linear rho), TDR (ohm), TDR & DTF
Y-axis: linear (rho) or impedance (ohm)
X-axis: distance (meters or feet)
VNA Time Domain (Option 010)
In time-domain mode, FieldFox computes the inverse Fourier transform of the frequency-domain data to display reflection or
transmission coefficients versus time.
Setup parameters
Time
Start, stop, center, span
Gating
Start, stop, center, span, and on/off
Numbers of points, velocity vector, line loss, window shape, independent control for all four traces
Time stimulus modes
Low-pass step
Low-pass step is similar to a traditional time domain reflectometer (TDR) stimulus waveform. It is used to measure
low-pass devices. The frequency-domain data should extend from DC (extrapolated value) to a higher value.
Low-pass impulse
Low-pass impulse response is used to measure low-pass devices.
Bandpass impulse
The bandpass impulse simulates a pulsed RF signal and is used to measure the time domain response of
band-limited devices.
Windows
The windowing function can be used to filter the frequency domain data and thereby reduce overshoot and ringing in the time domain response.
Windows
Minimum, medium and maximum, manual entry of Kaiser Beta and impulse width.
Gating
The gating function can be used to selectively remove reflection or transmission time domain responses. In converting back to the frequency domain the
effects of the responses outside the gate are removed. The results can be viewed with gating on and off, using two traces.
Gate types
Notch, bandpass
Gate shapes
Maximum, wide, normal, minimum

Mixed-Mode S-Parameters (Option 212)
Mixed-mode S-parameters are also known as balanced measurements.
Measurements
Scc11
Common mode reflection
Sdd11
Differential mode reflection
Scd11
Differential mode stimulus, common mode response
Sdc11
Common mode stimulus, differential mode response
FieldFox’s mixed-mode S-parameter measurements require the use of the default factory calibration or a user 2-port calibration. So
the FieldFox analyzer must be equipped with 2-port measurement functionality to measure mixed-mode S-parameters. Mixed-mode
S-parameters are an extension of the VNA capabilities.
Vector Voltmeter (VVM) (Option 308)
With vector voltmeter mode, you can characterize the difference between two measurements easily. The zeroing function allows you to
create a reference signal, and characterize the difference between two device measurements. The results are shown on a large display
in digital format.

Spectrum Analyzer Time Gating (Option 238)
With time gating, you can measure the spectrum of a periodic signal during a specified time interval. Pulsed-RF signals are an example
of a periodic signal that can be measured with time gating. For example, you can measure the pulse during the on period, not the
transition or the off period. Or you can exclude interfering signals such as a periodic transient. Time gating allows you to view spectral
components that would otherwise be hidden. FieldFox’s time gating method is a Gated FFT.

ERTA operation requires two FieldFoxes, each one configured with specific options, and certain accessories.
See FieldFox Configuration Guide for detailed option ordering information. Many capabilities listed in this Data Sheet require options.
System description
ERTA can be used to measure the scalar transmission gain or loss of an RF system. It is useful when measuring long lossy cables where
the two ends cannot easily be brought together, such as those bolted in on ships or aircrafts. It is also useful in measuring the insertion
loss of waveguide systems, or using the frequency-offset feature, devices such as mixers and converters.
ERTA measurements are based on two FieldFoxes; one at each end of the measured DUT. One FieldFox is the source and reference
receiver (R), while the other is the measurement receiver (B). The two FieldFoxes are synchronized using hardware triggering. By taking
advantage of FieldFox’s InstAlign technique, ERTA can be used to make accurate gain or loss measurements.

[Tracking] – FieldFox source tracks the receiver by default. The frequencies are identical.
[CW] – FieldFox’s source can be set to a CW frequency independent of FieldFox’s receiver frequency. FieldFox’s
source is at a single CW frequency; FieldFox’s receiver is swept.
[Coupled CW] – FieldFox’s source CW frequency is auto-coupled to FieldFox’s receiver [Center Frequency] setting.
Frequency-offset capability
This feature allows the FieldFox’s source frequency to be offset from FieldFox’s receiver frequency. The offset frequency can be negative, zero, or positive.
The frequency-offset capability is useful when characterizing the scalar transmission response of devices such as mixers and converters.

Extended Range Transmission Analysis (ERTA) (continued)
Dynamic range and maximum attenuation
Dynamic range is the difference between the maximum output power available from FieldFox’s source and the noise floor of the
second FieldFox, while ensuring that neither FieldFox’s ADC goes into over-range. Dynamic range also accounts for the loss of
the power splitter. Dynamic range is applicable when testing devices such as filters, where there is low loss in the passband, and
significant loss in the stopband, and both passband and stopband need to be on the display at the same time (same sweep).
Maximum attenuation is the difference between maximum output power available from FieldFox’s source and the noise floor of
FieldFox. It also accounts for the loss of power splitter. Maximum attenuation is applicable when testing devices such as cables, which
have relatively uniform loss over the swept frequency range.
The values shown are based on the recommended minimum RBW of 3 kHz when the frequency references are locked via GPS, and 300
kHz when the frequency references are unlocked. Locking the frequency references to GPS allows for greater frequency accuracy of
the FieldFoxes and use of a narrower RBW, which in turn results in a lower DANL, and hence a wider measurement range. When the
GPS signals cannot be present at all times, the GPS hold-over mode can be used.

External USB Power Sensor Support (Option 302)
The external USB power sensor option supports various Keysight USB power sensors. For an up-to-date listing of the supported power
sensors, visit http://www.keysight.com/find/fieldfoxsupport.
Description
Setup parameters
Frequency
Functions
Relative/absolute measurements, offsets, units of dBm or watts, or dB or %, minimum and maximum limits.
Internal source
FieldFox’s internal source can be turned on in the USB power sensor mode. CW frequency and nominal power
level control are available.
Pulse Measurements (Option 330)
FieldFox’s pulse measurement option can be used to characterize RF pulses such as those used in radar and electronic warfare
systems. Measurements are made using FieldFox and Keysight’s USB peak power sensors.
Performance specifications such as frequency, dynamic range and minimum pulse width depend on the peak power sensor. Supported
peak power sensors: http://www.keysight.com/find/fieldfoxsupport
Description
Setup parameters
Frequency, time (center), time/division, gating, triggering, video bandwidth, averaging
Functions
Average power, peak power, and peak to average ratio
Analog gauge display and digital display, dBm and watts
Relative/absolute measurements, offset, dB or %, minimum and maximum limits
Trace graph for pulse profiling with gating
Rise time, fall time, pulse width, pulse period, pulse repetition frequency
USB Power Sensor Measurements versus Frequency (Option 208)
This feature allows FieldFox’s source frequency to be set independently from the power sensor (receiver) frequency. With frequencyoffset using power sensor (FOPS), the frequency of both the source and receiver are swept, and the two track each other. The offset
frequency can be negative, zero, or positive.
FOPS can be used to characterize the scalar transmission response of devices such as mixers and converters. This frequency-offset
capability is necessary for conversion loss/gain measurements on frequency-translating devices, since by definition, the input and
output frequencies of the DUT are different. The FieldFox source stimulates the DUT and the power sensor is used as the measurement
receiver.
Since power sensors are inherently broadband devices (not frequency-selective), the user should ensure that only the signal of interest
is present at the power sensor input and that all others signals are filtered appropriately.
Setup parameters
Source frequency
Center/span or start/stop
Receiver frequency
Range determined by power sensor range
Frequency offset
Positive offset or negative offset
Frequency step size

45 | Keysight | FieldFox Handheld Analyzers 4/6.5/9/14/18/26.5/32/44/50 GHz - Data Sheet
USB Power Sensor Measurements versus Frequency (continued)
Source frequency span must be equal to receiver frequency span.
Receiver sweep direction: forward (default setting) or reverse.
For some DUTs, the output frequency may sweep in a reverse direction, as compared to the source frequency. The basic relationships
between the source, receiver and offset frequencies are shown in the table below. The FieldFox analyzer includes an offset calculator
that ensures a fast measurement setup.
Src sweep direction
Rx sweep direction
Frequency calculations
Forward f2src > f1src
Forward f2rx > f1rx
Receiver frequency = Source frequency ± Offset
Forward f2src > f1src
Reverse f2rx > f1rx
Receiver frequency = Offset — Source Frequency Offset > Source frequency
Description
Measurements
Source power, gain/loss and receiver (Rx) power
Gain = Rx power / source power (memory). Source power (memory) is measured during setup.
Output power
Refer to the test port output power typical data on page 5.
Dynamic range
The dynamic range with FOPS is dependent on FieldFox’s output power and the power sensor’s dynamic range.
Supported USB power sensors: www.keysight.com/find/fieldfoxsupport
The graph below shows a filter measurement using two different power sensors, the U2002A (—60 to +20 dBm) and the U2021XA
(—45 to +20 dBm). While a filter is not commonly measured using FOPS, it is a useful device for demonstrating dynamic range.
For both measurements, the FieldFox source power was set to —1 dBm, the maximum available in the selected frequency range of
7.25 to 13.25 GHz. An external amplifier was not used in this case, but one can be added to increase the source power and hence
dynamic range.
Example showing typical dynamic range of FOPS

1. Battery life will be reduced when DC source is used. A trip function turns off the power supply when the rated current or power is exceeded.
Remote Control Capability (Option 030)
Option 030 adds remote control capability to FieldFox analyzers, so that FieldFox can be controlled via an iOS device. The FieldFox
app, running on the iOS device, combined with Option 030 on the FieldFox analyzer provides full control of the instrument from a
remote location. The app emulates the front panel of FieldFox, so users can press the FieldFox hardkeys or softkeys using their iPhone
or iPad, and make measurements remotely.
For example, a tower climber can be on the tower with a FieldFox analyzer, while the technician controls and makes the measurements
down below, using an iPad. The iPad and FieldFox communicate via a network connection.
iOS device requirements
–– iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch
–– iOS of 6.1 or higher
–– A WiFi or 3G/4G connection
The FieldFox app communicates with FieldFox via a network connection, so both the iOS device and FieldFox need to be on a network
where both devices can reach the other. For example, a company intranet or a site installation using a wireless router. FieldFox can
directly be connected to a LAN cable, or if wired LAN is not available, a user supplied wireless router can be configured to work with
FieldFox. FieldFox does not include a wireless router.
47 | Keysight | FieldFox Handheld Analyzers 4/6.5/9/14/18/26.5/32/44/50 GHz - Data Sheet
Remote Control Capability (continued)
FieldFox app without Option 030
The FieldFox app can be installed on an iOS device independent of the presence of Option 030 on the analyzer. Without Option 030,
users can view the live display screen of their FieldFox remotely, but cannot control the instrument. With 030 purchased and installed
on their FieldFox, users can both view and control their FieldFox. Control refers to the ability to press hardkeys, softkeys, make or
change measurements, etc.
Option 030 does not include the iOS device itself. Users must supply their own iOS device. Option 030 is a license on the FieldFox
analyzer.
Option 030 and the FieldFox app are not applicable to Android, BlackBerry, or Windows phone/tablet devices.
