Serial: Hardware-accelerated Decode and Trigger
for I2C, SPI, CAN, LIN and Flex Ray
As more and more component interfaces move from parallel to serial
on both low- and high-speed buses, Agilent is offering more serial
triggering and decode options on oscilloscopes.
Serial Bus Triggering and Decoding
Digital: 16 Digital Timing Channels and Mixed
Signal Triggering
With many of today’s designs containing a mix of signal types and
speeds, it’s often critical to capture and compare multiple cycles of
digital signals along with slower analog signals. But doing so often
requires an instrument that can deliver more resolution and memory
than a traditional DSO can provide.
Easily See Complex Interactions with an MSO
Mixed signal oscilloscopes (MSOs) with 2 or 4 scope channels plus
16 logic channels combine the detailed signal analysis of a scope
with the multi-channel timing measurements of a logic analyzer.

Oscilloscopes, 100 MHz to 500 MHz 5000 Series Oscilloscopes
Users of general-purpose portable oscilloscopes have, until now, had
to work through everyday debug tasks using oscilloscope technology
from the 1990s. Engineers need tools capable of handling today’s
design challenges. The new 5000 Series oscilloscopes tackle these
needs with responsive deep memory, a high-definition display
system, and a superior ability to capture signal transients.
Traditional bench scopes are great for characterizing things that you
know about. Agilent’s patented deep memory and fast waveform
update rate help you find the bugs that you don’t know about.
• 1Mpts deep memory – High sustained high sample rates means
that you don’t lose signal resolution – even when acquiring long
periods of time
• 100,000 waveforms/sec update rate – Fast waveform update
rates provide you with unsurpassed ability to capture and view
infrequent and intermittent problems
• XGA display with 256 levels of intensity – A high-definition
display system improves your ability to view small signal
anomalies
• Full connectivity, including USB: USB, LAN, GPIB, and XGA videoout are all included standard
• LXI class C compatible
MegaZoom III Deep Memory
Based on the same technology that powers Agilent’s market leading
high end oscilloscopes the deep memory that is available in the 5000
oscilloscope is based on MegaZoom technology. 1 Mpt of MegaZoom
deep memory comes standard so you can capture long, non-repeating signals, while maintaining high sample rates and good timing
resolution.

MegaZoom Deep Memory
Always On and Always Fast
• Instant response to control signals – with up to 128 Mpts of
deep memory
• Zoom in quickly on critical signals
• Easily and quickly find infrequent and unpredictable events
Inflection occurs
at 200 ns/div
With many of today’s designs containing a mix of signal types and
speeds, it’s often critical to capture and compare multiple cycles of
digital signals along with slower analog signals. But doing so often
requires an instrument that can deliver more resolution and
memory than a traditional DSO can provide. MegaZoom gives you
memory that is simultaneously fast and deep all the time, unlike
deep-memory options on alternative scopes. With Agilent oscilloscopes, you have up to 128 Mpts of MegaZoom deep memory,
enabling you to correlate high-speed digital control signals with
slower analog signals, capture infrequent events and then quickly
zoom in on the details to narrow in on problems. Unlike deep-memory
options on alternative scopes, Agilent MegaZoom is not a special
mode with sluggish response. It’s always on, always fast, and always
there to help you capture the most critical signals with maximized
sample rates.

MegaZoom technology is based on a custom processor that controls
the flow of data into acquisition memory and rapid post-processing
for display and measurements. The MegaZoom processor operates
at the full speed of the scope’s A/D. Processing the data with
MegaZoom technology greatly reduces the amount of data
transferred to the scope’s CPU for post-processing. MegaZoom
substantially increases the waveform update rate and front-panel
responsiveness of Agilent’s deep memory scopes, making these
scopes better suited to working on today’s complex digital-based
designs. Responsiveness and waveform update rate slow down
dramatically on traditional deep memory oscilloscopes making
them difficult, sluggish and frustrating to use. Agilents oscilloscopes
feature patented MegaZoom technology that provides the fastest
waveform update rates – uncompromised. Agilent oscilloscopes also
feature best-in-class waveform viewing powered by MegaZoom technology.

Besides bandwidth, one of the most fundamental specifications in a
digital storage oscilloscope (DSO) is its specified maximum sample
rate. However, a DSO’s sample rate is actually based on the scope's
time base setting. At the faster time base settings, all oscilloscopes
will capture waveforms using their specified maximum sample
rates. But as you adjust the time base setting to slower ranges in
order to capture longer waveforms, all scopes will automatically
reduce their sample rates because of their limited memory depths.
Deeper memory in an oscilloscope means that the scope can sustain
its maximum sample rate on more time base settings, enabling you
to see more details of your signals.

Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes
• Mixed signal oscilloscopes – 16 digital channels time-correlated
with traditional scope analog channels
• Oscilloscope interface and ease of use with logic analyzer
insight, timing and measurements
• Precise analog measurements timed with exact digital content,
all in one box
Agilent pioneered the mixed signal oscilloscope in the mid 1990s
and has continued to modify and improve upon the original idea
since then. You can now choose from a large selection of bandwidths, memory depths and sample rates to meet your needs.

MSO6000A
MSO8000A
What is an MSO?
Increasing digital content brought about by the wide use of microcontrollers, DSPs, and microprocessors has added to the challenges
of design verification and debug. And the proliferation of low-cost
serial buses makes it more difficult to trigger on and interpret the
interaction of information as it flows through a system. To trace the
path between initial symptom and root cause of a problem with a
traditional 2- or 4-channel oscilloscope, you have to take multiple
acquisitions to capture all the signals of interest. Each acquisition
only gives you a narrow view of system behavior.
Agilent’s mixed signal oscilloscopes (MSOs) tightly correlate
2 or 4 analog channels with 16 logic timing channels. MSOs combine
all of the measurement capabilities of a digital storage oscilloscope
(DSO) with some of the measurement capabilities of a logic analyzer,
along with serial protocol analysis — in a single instrument. With an
MSO, you are able to see multiple time-aligned analog, parallel,
digital, and serially decoded waveforms on the same display.
MSOs allow you to trigger on any combination of analog and digital
signals – and on many popular serial bus protocols. You can do all of
this with a single, easy-to-use oscilloscope interface.
More Channels, More Memory, More Triggering
With the increasing digital content in today’s designs, it is often
difficult to capture enough channels simultaneously with a
traditional 2 or 4 channel scope. To further complicate matters, the
analog and digital sides are often operating at drastically different
speeds. The seamless integration of scope and logic timing channels
in the MSO gives you an instrument with unprecedented capabilities. With the MSO you can trigger on any combination of its scope
and logic channels with the low jitter performance you expect from
an oscilloscope. Now you can capture, display, and analyze a variety
of signals in one acquisition on one instrument screen, helping you
narrow in more quickly on tough design problems. With mixed
signal scopes, a 16-channel timing analyzer is seamlessly integrated
into a full-featured scope. It’s now easy to measure a combination of
signal types and speeds all at once, including slow analog slow
analog, fast digital, or baseband RF.

6000L
If you work with both analog and digital circuitry, the Agilent 6000L
Series oscilloscope can help you see more signal activity in your
designs. You can upgrade the 6000L Series oscilloscope to a 4 scope +
16 logic timing channel mixed signal oscilloscope (MSO). Agilent’s
mixed signal oscilloscopes (MSOs) tightly correlate 4 analog channels with 16 logic timing channels. With an MSO, you are able to see
multiple time-aligned analog, parallel, digital, and serially decoded
waveforms on the same display.
Easy System Integration
The Agilent 6014L Series digital storage oscilloscopes (DSOs) offer
four channels of measurements in a compact, rack-mountable 1Uhigh form factor, giving engineers a space-efficient way to integrate
oscilloscopes into their test systems.
Powerful Acquisition with MegaZoom III Deep Memory
Consistent with other Agilent oscilloscopes the deep memory that is
available in the 6000L Series Low Profile oscilloscope is based on
MegaZoom technology. 2 Mpt of MegaZoom deep memory comes
standard so you can capture long, non-repeating signals, while
maintaining high sample rates and good timing resolution.
Rack mount brackets and rack rails are standard with every unit
and because the units have side and rear air vents (no top or bottom
air vents) other instruments can be mounted directly above or below
them. There is built-in web server to provide remote access and control of the instrument via a standard Java-enabled web browser on
your computer. There is also a no-cost optional secure environment
mode that provides the highest level of security by ensuring that
internal memory is clear of all setup and trace settings. Because the
6000L Series Oscilloscope is LXI class C compliant and is 100% compatible with 6000A Series Oscilloscope it enables an easy transition
from development to manufacturing. Engineers can use the LXI
class C compliant 6000A Series portable oscilloscope during the

Industry-Leading MegaZoom Deep Memory
Standard Memory
MegaZoom is Agilent’s unique, patented technology that gives you
the advantages of deep memory without the usual drawbacks.
MegaZoom deep memory lets you capture a full cycle of your system’s operation and responsively zoom in on specific areas of interest. MegaZoom deep memory captures long records with fast
waveform updates, minimizing dead-time between acquisitions.
Special Features
Signal Integrity
If you are concerned about accurate reproduction of your signals as
they appear on your device under test, you need the best end-to-end
measurement system starting at the probe tip. The 1156A 1.5 GHz
single-ended active probe is uniquely designed for a flat frequency
response over the entire probe bandwidth, eliminating the distortion and frequency-dependent loading effects that are present
in probes that have an in-band resonance. The InfiniiMax 1130A
1.5 GHz differential/single-ended active probe system builds on this
technology by providing a variety of flexible probe heads to gain
access to the most difficult to access test points.

86100C
DCA-J
86100C Infiniium DCA-J
• Modular platform for testing electrical and optical waveforms to
40 Gb/s and beyond
• Automated jitter and interference decomposition
• Internally generated pattern trigger
• Broadest coverage of data rates
• RIN measurements on PRBS signals
• Jitter spectrum of clock or data signals
Signal Integrity Analysis
The unique combination of wide bandwidth and low noise makes the
DCA-J the most precise signal integrity analyzer available. Accurate
eye-diagram analysis is essential for characterizing the quality
of transmitters used from 50 Mb/s to 40 Gb/s and the DCA-J is
designed specifically for the complex task of analyzing digital waveforms. Compliance mask and parametric testing can be performed
with the touch of a single button.
Jitter and Amplitude Interference Analysis
Meeting Your Growing Need for More Bandwidth
3
Today’s high data-rate signals have significant frequency content
well beyond a real-time oscilloscope’s 3 dB bandwidth. A high bandwidth scope does not alone guarantee an accurate representation
of your waveform. Careful design of the DCA-J equivalent time sampling oscilloscope’s frequency response (both amplitude and phase)
minimizes distortion such as overshoot and ringing allowing the
most precise signal analysis available from 50 Mb/s to over
40 Gb/s.
Four Instruments in One
The 86100C Infiniium DCA-J can be viewed as four high-powered
instruments in one:
• A general-purpose wide-bandwidth sampling oscilloscope; the
new PatternLock triggering significantly enhances the usability
as a general purpose scope
• A digital communications analyzer; the new Eyeline Mode
feature adds a powerful new tool to eye diagram analysis
• A time domain reflectometer
• A jitter and amplitude interference analyzer
In addition the 86100C Infiniium DCA-J can measure:
• Relative Intensity Noise (RIN) of lasers modulated with industrystandard PRBS signals
• Characterize the jitter spectrum of clock or data signals found in
many computer architectures
• Lock its clock recovery onto Source Spectrum Clocking (SSC)
signals
Configurable to Meet Your Needs
The 86100C supports a wide range of modules for testing both
optical and electrical signals. Select modules to get the specific
bandwidth and sensitivity you need.
English URL www.agilent.com/find/products
Extremely wide bandwidth, low intrinsic jitter, and advanced analysis algorithms yield the highest accuracy in jitter measurements. As
data rates increase in both electrical and optical applications,
decomposition of jitter and amplitude interference into its
constituent components is becoming more critical. It provides
critical insight for jitter and amplitude budgeting and performance
optimization in device and system designs. Many emerging
standards require jitter decomposition for compliance. The DCA-J
provides simple, one button setup and execution of advanced
waveform analysis. Jitter Mode decomposes jitter and amplitude
interference into its constituent components and presents jitter
data in various insightful displays. Jitter Mode operates at all data
rates the DCA-J supports. The 86100C brings several key attributes
to jitter analysis:
• Very low intrinsic jitter (both random and deterministic)
translates to the lowest jitter noise floor available providing
unmatched jitter measurement sensitivity
• Wide bandwidth measurement channels with very low intrinsic
jitter allow jitter and interference analysis on all data rates to
40 Gb/s and beyond
• Optimized frequency response (magnitude and phase) results in
more accurate waveform representation
Internal Triggering Through Clock Recovery
Typically an external timing reference is used to trigger an equivalent time sampling oscilloscope to the test signal. In cases where
a trigger signal is not available, clock recovery modules with
adjustable PLL loop bandwidth are used to derive a timing reference
directly from the waveform and provide golden PLL functionality for
testing to industry standards.
PatternLock Triggering
The Enhanced Trigger Option (Option 001) enables the DCA-J
to generate a trigger at the repetition of the input data pattern –
a pattern trigger. PatternLock automatically detects the pattern
length, data rate and clock rate enabling the 86100C to behave more
like a real-time oscilloscope in terms of user experience. Users that
are familiar with real-time oscilloscopes, but perhaps less so with
equivalent time sampling scopes will be able to ramp up quickly.
Time Domain Reflectometry/Time Domain Transmission
(TDR/TDT)
High-speed design starts with the physical structure. The transmission and reflection properties of electrical channels and components
must be characterized to ensure sufficient signal integrity.
Use TDR and TDT to optimize microstrip lines, PC board
traces, SMA edge launchers and coaxial cables.
Calibration techniques, unique to the DCA-J, provide the highest precision by removing cabling and fixturing effects from the
measurement results. Translation of TDR data to complete singleended, differential, and mixed mode S-parameters are available
through the N1930A Physical Layer Test System software.
For specifications and ordering information refer to pages
76-79.

Other eye-diagram masks are easily created through scaling.
In addition, mask editing allows for new masks either by editing
existing masks, or creating new masks from scratch. A new mask
can also be created or modified on an external PC using a text editor
such as Notepad, then can be transferred to the instrument’s hard
drive using LAN, Flash drive, or USB devices.
Perform these mask conformance tests with convenient
user-definable measurement conditions, such as mask margins for
guardband testing, number of waveforms tested, and stop/limit
actions.

DCA-J
Internal Triggering Through Clock Recovery
Typically an external timing reference is used to synchronize the
oscilloscope to the test signal. In cases where a trigger signal is not
available, clock recovery modules are available to derive a timing
reference directly from the waveform to be measured.
The 83496B provides the highest performance/flexibility as it
is capable of operation at any data rate from 50 Mb/s to 13.5 Gb/s, on
single-ended and differential electrical signals, single mode (1250 to
1620 nm) and multimode (780 to 1330 nm) optical signals, with
extremely low residual jitter. PLL loop bandwidth is adjustable to
provide optimal jitter filtering according to industry test standards.

N490xA/B Bit Error Ratio Tester
Jitter Mode
3
Jitter Mode decomposes jitter and amplitude interference into its
constituent components and presents jitter data in various insightful displays. Jitter Mode operates at all data rates the DCA-J supports, removing the traditional data rate limitations from complex
jitter analysis. The DCA-J brings several key attributes to jitter
analysis:
• Very low intrinsic jitter (both random and deterministic) translates to a very low jitter noise floor which provides unmatched
jitter measurement sensitivity
• Wide bandwidth measurement channels deliver very low intrinsic data dependent jitter and allow analysis of jitter on all data
rates to 40 Gb/s and beyond
• PatternLock triggering technology provides sampling efficiency
that makes jitter measurements very fast
Analysis functionality is segmented into three software package options. Option 200 is the enhanced jitter analysis software, and
Option 201 is the advanced waveform analysis software. Option 300
provides amplitude analysis and RIN. Option 200 includes:
• Decomposition of jitter into Total Jitter (TJ), Random Jitter (RJ),
Deterministic Jitter (DJ), Periodic Jitter (PJ), Data Dependent
Jitter (DDJ), Duty Cycle Distortion (DCD), and Jitter induced by
Intersymbol Interference (ISI)
• Various graphical and tabular displays of jitter data
• Export of jitter data to convenient delimited text format
• Save/recall of jitter database
• Jitter frequency spectrum
• Isolation and analysis of Sub-Rate Jitter (SRJ), that is, periodic
jitter that is at an integer sub-rate of the bitrate
• Bathtub curve display
• Adjustable total jitter probability
As bit rates increase, channel effects cause significant eye
closure. Many new devices and systems are employing equalization
and pre/de-emphasis to compensate for channel effects. Option 201
Advanced Waveform Analysis will provide key tools to enable design
and test of devices and systems that must deal with difficult channel
effects:
• Capture of long single valued waveforms. PatternLock triggering
and the waveform append capability of Option 201 enable very
accurate pulse train data sets up to 2 x 1023 bits long
• Equalization. The DCA-J can take a long single valued waveform
and route it through an equalizer algorithm (default or user
defined) and display the resultant equalized waveform in real
time. The user can simultaneously view the input (distorted) and
output (equalized) waveforms
• Interface to MatLab® analysis capability
Option 300 includes:
• Decomposition of amplitude interference into total interference
(TI), deterministic interference (DI), random noise (RN), data
dependent interference (DDI), inter-symbol interference (ISI),
and periodic interference (PI)
• Various graphical and tabular displays of interference
measurements
• Relative Intensity Noise (RIN 1 level or RIN OMA) using
square-wave or industry-standard PRBS patterns
• Q-factor measurement
Option 300 requires options 200 (enhanced jitter software)
and 001 (enhanced trigger hardware).
Error performance analysis represents an essential part of digital
transmission test. The DCA-J and Agilent N490xA/B Bit Error Ratio
Tester error performance analyzer come together to create a powerful test solution where two instruments together can perform measurements that would otherwise be impossible.
Transitioning from the Agilent 83480A or
86100A/B to the Infiniium DCA-J
The 86100C Infiniium DCA-J has been designed to be a virtual dropin replacement for the Agilent 83480A digital communications analyzer and Agilent 54750A wide-bandwidth oscilloscope. All modules
used in the Agilent 83480A, 54750A, and 86100A/B can also be used
in the 86100C Infiniium DCA-J. Some newer modules (such as the
86116C and the 83496B) work only in the 86100C Infiniium DCA-J.
Eyeline Mode
Eyeline Mode is a new feature only available in the DCA-J that provides insight into the effects of specific bit transitions within a data
pattern. The unique view assists diagnosis of device or system failures do to specific transitions or sets of transitions within a pattern.
When combined with mask limit tests, Eyeline Mode can quickly
isolate the specific bit that caused a mask violation.
Traditional triggering methods on an equivalent time sampling
scope are quite effective at generating eye diagrams. However, these
eye diagrams are made up of samples whose timing relationship to
the data pattern is effectively random, so a given eye will be made up
of samples from many different bits in the pattern taken with no
specific timing order. The result is that amplitude versus time trajectories of specific bits in the pattern are not visible. Also, averaging of the eye diagram is not valid, as the randomly related samples
will effectively average to zero.
Eyeline Mode uses PatternLock triggering to build up an eye
diagram from samples taken sequentially through the data pattern.
This maintains a specific timing relationship between samples and
allows Eyeline Mode to draw the eye based on specific bit trajectories. Effects of specific bit transitions can be investigated, and averaging can be used with the eye diagram.
Measurements
The following measurements are available from the tool bar, as well
as the pull down menus. The available measurements depend on the
DCA-J operating mode.
Jitter Mode
Jitter Mode requires Option 001 Enhanced Trigger hardware.
There are three analysis software packages for the DCA-J. Option 200 is
the enhanced jitter analysis software, Option 201 is the advanced waveform analysis software, and option 300 is the advanced amplitude
analysis software.

High-Impedance Passive Probes
10400
Family
10400B Passive Divider Probe Family
The 10400B probe family are reliable general-purpose high performance passive probes that replace the 10400A family of probes.
These probes include a no-slip browser. The crown point of the
browser digs in to solder and won’t slip while the pogo pin allows
small hand movements without losing contact.
The 10400B family of probes also comes complete with a range of
accessories. For grounding, there’s an alligator ground lead for generalpurpose probing, 4 spring grounds for high frequency measurements
and a socketed ground lead. The accessories also include 2 IC clips for
probing 50 mil SMDs and a dual-lead adapter so that both the probe tip
and ground can easily be connected to surface mount devices.
The miniature probe has a narrow, sharp tip that is good for probing SMDs. The handle of the probe can be unscrewed and pulled back
on the cable to reduce the probe’s mass and size. This makes attaching
to fine pitch ICs and small devices easier. For connection to fine pitch
ICs order the Wedge probe adapter or the 0.5 mm IC clips.
The 10400 family of probes are built and tested for high reliability. The cable has a Kevlar strengthener for added pull strength
and the general purpose retractable hook tip is made from durable
music wire. The probe tips are replaceable.
See page 87 for compatible SMT probing solutions.

(Scope and Probe)
The 117x family of low mass high performance passive probes for
the Infiniium Oscilloscopes is designed specifically to make the
probing of fine pitch ICs and dense circuit boards easier. The probe
tip is exceptionally small and light, weighing less than 1 gram, so it is
easier to attach to those small devices and surface mount ICs. Even
though small and light, these probes are designed for high performance and the ruggedness required for general purpose use. The
cable is re-enforced with Kevlar for added pull strength.
The probe also includes a no-slip browser for precise and safe
browsing. The crown point of the browser digs in to solder and won’t
slip and the pogo pin allows small movements without loosing contact.
The 117xA family of probes will connect directly to the Wedge
probe adapter for an easy hands-free solution for probing 0.5 and
0.65 mm IC packages. See page 87 for more information.

0.5 mm IC Clips
These IC clips are the smallest in the industry to date and are suitable for connecting to PQFP and SOIC SMT packages from 0.5 – 0.8 mm
pitch. The thin body allows clips to be mounted side by side for
probing adjacent IC pins. They are suitable for use with all Agilent
oscilloscope probes and logic analyzers and have a maximum input
voltage of ±40 V (dc + peak ac).

At one end, Wedge conductor segments are inserted into the space between
IC pins; at the other end, they easily connect to scopes and logic analyzers.
Wedge Probe Adapter
Precise Problem-free Probing
The Agilent Wedge probe adapter solves the problem of connecting
your scope or logic analyzer to fine pitch thin quad flat pack (TQFP)
and plastic quad flat pack (PQFP) surface mount ICs. It provides
accurate, mechanically noninvasive and reliable electrical contact to
0.5 and 0.65 mm IC packages, with little chance of shorting. It is
available in 3-, 8-, and 16-signal versions.
Easy to Insert, Then Stays Put
It works by inserting compressible dual conductors between adjacent IC pins. The flexible conductors conform to the size and shape
of each leg to ensure tight contact. It’s then a simple matter to connect your scope or logic analyzer to the Agilent Wedge.
Electrical Reliability
The Wedge’s unique design delivers secure redundant contact on
each pin, with little chance of shorting to adjacent pins. The redundant physical connection created by two contact points on each pin
of the IC and its short electrical length dramatically increases the
reliability of the electrical connection. Since the Agilent Wedge
doesn’t latch directly onto the IC and doesn’t require expansion
beforehand (as a clip does), it can be inserted while the board is
active. Plus, it’s mechanically noninvasive so it won’t damage your
device under test.

information.
The Agilent 1156A, 1157A, and 1158A family of active probes offers
R & D engineers the performance they need to probe small geometries in hard-to-reach areas on the DUT. These probes were designed
specifically for the Infiniium or 6000 Series oscilloscopes.
As the speeds in your design increase, you may notice more
overshoot, ringing, and other perturbations when connecting an
oscilloscope probe. Probes form a resonant circuit where they connect to the device. If this resonance is within the bandwidth of the
oscilloscope probe you are using, it will be difficult to determine if
the measurement perturbations are due to your circuit or the probe.
Agilent is the only company that has overcome the resonance
formed by the connection of a probe to a device. The Agilent
1156/57/58A probes optimize performance to make your job easier.

N2779A 3-channel Power Supply for N2780A Series Current Probes
Wide Range of Applications
The current probes feature broad measurement ranges (up to

that make the probes ideal for current measurements in areas such
as measuring steady state or transient current of motor drives,
switching power supplies, inverters, controllers, sensors, disk
drives, LCD displays, electronic ballasts and amplifiers. The high
signal-to-noise ratio of the N2782A and N2783A makes them ideal
for making low-level current measurements in milliamphere ranges.
Accurate Current Measurement
A built-in DEMAG (demagnetize) function allows the removal of any
residual magnetism that has built up in the magnetic core due to
power on/off switching or excessive input current. In addition, voltage offset or temperature drift on the probe can be easily corrected
by using the zero adjustment control.

section is devoted primarily to the frequency
domain.
Signal/Spectrum Analyzers
Modern day analyzers offer both swepttuned and FFT architectures. In addition
they also offer high frequency range, wide
dynamic range, and excellent overall RF
characteristics. Many offer measurement
personalities and applications to demodulate signals based on standards, and can be
configured with easy to use one-button
pass/fail testing capabilities. The following
are just some of the measurements that can
be made with signal/spectrum analyzers:
absolute and relative frequency, absolute
and relative amplitude, noise, spurious and
distortion products, AM, FM, pulsed modulation, and digital modulation.

Dynamic Signal (Fourier)
Analyzers
Fourier analyzers offer fast, high-resolution
spectrum and network analysis. Unlike
conventional swept analyzers, Fourierbased analyzers can measure dynamic
signals because they measure all frequencies simultaneously, not one at a time.
Fourier analyzers are especially useful on
low-frequency signals (<100 kHz) or where
very fast measurements are desired.
Applications include acoustic, modal,
vibration, or rotating machine analysis.
Vector Signal Analyzers
VSAs provide capabilities throughout the
RF range. They offer fast, high-resolution
spectrum measurements, demodulation,
and advanced time-domain analysis. They
are especially useful for characterizing
complex signals such as burst, transient, or
modulated signals used in communications,
video, broadcast, sonar, and ultrasound
imaging applications. The vector signal analyzer is also capable of in-depth modulation
analysis as it captures signal phase along
with magnitude.
EMC/EMI Solutions
Based on a spectrum analyzer platform
the E7400A series EMC analyzer provides
the tools required for pre-compliance EMI
measurements to 26.5 GHz for conducted
and radiated emissions.
Using any of the PSA Series spectrum
analyzers as the measurement engine, the
EMI Measurement Receiver adds the
N9039A RF Pre-selector for full CISPR
16-1-1 compliance measurement capability.

The Agilent PSA series offers high-performance spectrum analysis
up to 50 GHz with powerful one-button measurements, a versatile
feature set, and a leading-edge combination of flexibility, speed,
accuracy, bandwidth and dynamic range.
Measurement Accuracy
The PSA Series’ modern instrument architecture features an alldigital IF section, a highly accurate internal reference signal, and
automatic internal alignment processes to achieve unsurpassed
industry-leading accuracy, guaranteed by Agilent’s high standards
for meeting our published specifications.
Measurement Speed and Dynamic Range
The PSA Series spectrum analyzer is designed to optimize measurements for speed and dynamic range. With a 2-dB step attenuator and
160 resolution bandwidth settings (in 10% steps), you can customize
each of your measurements to achieve the best combination of
speed and dynamic range. Decrease adjacent channel power ratio
measurement time with the industry’s fastest ACPR measurement.
Swept Tuned or FFT Analysis
With the all-digital IF, the PSA can perform both swept or FFT
measurements. FFT capability can significantly reduce the sweep
time in narrow span measurements and low-level spur searches.
Analysis Bandwidth
For center frequencies up to 26.5 GHz, use PSA option 122 (80 MHz
BW Digitizer) to analyze signals up to 80 MHz wide and with 78 dB of
image-free dynamic range. Analysis of digitally modulated signals is
enhanced by the superb digital IF performance, which produces
residual EVM of <1%. Capture up to 1.28 seconds of signal data at
80 MHz bandwidth, or record longer capture times at narrower
spans. For signals up to 40 MHz wide, use the PSA Option 140
(40 MHz BW Digitizer). For measurements above 3 GHz, PSA
Option 123 (Switchable MW Preselector Bypass), allows for superb
frequency response and phase linearity in the microwave bands.

Measurements Beyond Spectrum Analysis
The PSA Series offers a variety of optional measurement personalities to expand measurement capability. A measurement personality
is a downloadable software program that can transform the spectrum analyzer into another type of test instrument, essentially
giving it another “personality”. You can make the most challenging
measurements very easily and with the same instrument you use for
spectrum analysis. Choose from over 16 measurement personalities
to make phase noise measurements for oscillator tests, measure the
noise figure of your amplifier, execute scalar network analysis, or
even perform modulation analysis on your 2G, 2.5G, 3G or 3.5G
signal. If you have a proprietary modulated signal that you want
to test, you can use internal flexible digital modulation analysis
personality or you can link the PSA to the 89601A vector signal
analysis software for flexible demodulation and analysis.

Upgrade from the HP8566A/B or HP8568A/B Analyzer
The PSA Series spectrum analyzers offer programming code compatibility with the Agilent 856x, 895x, and HP 8566A/B, 8568A/B
legacy spectrum analyzers. Option 266 allows users with those
legacy instruments to upgrade their automated test equipment
(ATE) systems with modern and supportable ESA-E or PSA Series
spectrum analyzers as the HP 8566A/B, 8568A/B instruments reach
the end of their formal support lives. Additionally, PSA Option 124
provides 8566A/B, 8568A/B analog Y-axis video out capability.
Measurements Beyond 50 GHz
With optional external mixing capability (Option AYZ) along with
harmonic mixers, the Agilent PSA (E4440A/46A/47A/48A) can
measure signals up to 325 GHz. The PSA Option AYZ will support
Agilent 11970 Series millimeter harmonic mixers, Agilent 11974
Series preselected millimeter harmonic mixers as well as third party
mixers. The PSA Option AYZ offers patented signal identification
methods to help you identify true signals to be test more efficiently,
and amplitude correction to compensate for conversion loss
incurred in external mixers. It also supplies bias voltage with
adjustable current for third-party mixers requiring biasing to maximize signal conversion.
Gated Sweep
Analyze time-varying signals such as pulsed RF, time division multiple access (TDMA), interleaved and burst-modulated signals with
gated sweep capability that is now a standard feature of all the PSA
Series spectrum analyzers. The gated sweep capability enables the
PSA to perform fast and accurate spectrum measurements on burst
signals without interference from switching the carrier on and off.
The gate length can be easily adjusted between 10 µs and 500 ms,
and the gate delay from 0 to 500 ms. Users can choose between
external TTL trigger, variable level trigger, or burst trigger to start
the PSA gated sweep according to the nature of time-varying signals
under test.
Phase Noise (Option 226)
This optional, built-in measurement personality consolidates
advanced spectrum analysis capability and phase noise measurements into a single oscillator test. This flexible tool can quickly and
easily generate plots of phase noise in dBc/Hz versus log offset
frequency or measure jitter or make continuous real-time spot
frequency phase noise measurements. An intuitive user-interface
provides easily adjustable parameters without the need to resort to
cumbersome tables.
Noise Figure (Option 219)
The noise figure measurement personality provides fast, one-button
noise figure and gain measurements from 200 kHz up to 26.5 GHz.
DUT setup menus help guide you easily through amplifier and mixer
measurements, and a built-in measurement uncertainty calculator
makes it easy to qualify your measurement system. An optional
internal preamplifier (Option 1DS) improves instrument uncertainty to ±0.05 dB for frequencies up to 3 GHz, so you can conveniently
and accurately measure devices with low noise figure. A 50 GHz
internal preamplifier (Option 110) enables nominal performance to
the highest frequency of the PSA.
External Source Control (Option 215)
The external source control measurement personality, available on
all the PSA Series models (E4440A/43A/45A/46A/47A/48A),
enables these high-performance spectrum analyzers to control
Agilent PSG or ESG signal generators for scalar network analysis up
to 50 GHz. A variety of controlled sweep modes, including standard
sweep, harmonic sweep, offset sweep, and power sweep, provides
the optimal test tools for characterizing different components. Wide
dynamic range (up to and beyond 109 dB) allows accurate measurements for a component with the presence of high and low power
levels at the same time. One-button normalization and open/short
calibration help to remove the systemic frequency response errors
incurred in the transmission and return loss measurements, respectively, to further improve the measurement accuracy.
English URL www.agilent.com/find/products
Flexible Digital Modulation Analysis (Option 241)
The flexible digital modulation analysis measurement personality
allows you to measure error vector magnitude (EVM), and troubleshooting digital communication systems. This option makes PSA

NADC/PDC (Option BAE)
1xEV-DV (Option 214)
For the higher data rates provided by 1xEV-DV in cdma2000 forward
link, the 1xEV-DV measurement personality supports 8PSK and
16QAM modulation analysis. This option provides the following
necessary measurements:
• code domain analysis
• modulation accuracy (composite rho and EVM)
1xEV-DO (Option 204)
The evolution to cdma2000 with 1xEV-DO Rev.O and A introduces
unique measurement challenges. Based on 3GPP2 Technical
Specification Group cdma2000 (TSG-C) standards (C.S0032,
C.S0033 and C.S0024-A), these challenges are met with the following
measurements:
• code domain power
• modulation accuracy (composite rho)
• QPSK EVM
• power versus time (PvT)
• channel power
• intermodulation distortion
• spurious emissions and ACP
• occupied bandwidth
• CCDF
TD-SCDMA (Options 211/212/213)
Perform measurements on uplink and downlink TD-SCDMA signals.
The measurement personalities, based on the 3GPP TD-SCDMA
standard UTRA TDD 1.28 Mcps option, provide power and modulation-domain measurements, including HSDPA/8PSK signals, with
pass/fail indication for conformance verification. These limits can
be user-defined to meet custom pass/fail requirements.
PSA Option 211 TD-SCDMA measurement personality easily
makes power measurements such as transmit power, power versus
time, occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel power, spectrum emission mask, and more.
PSA Option 212 performs modulation analysis measurements.
By quickly quantifying modulation quality, engineers can troubleshoot designs and find the root cause of error. Composite EVM,
constellation diagram, code domain power, code domain error, and
other results are available.
PSA Option 213 adds HSDPA/8PSK capability to Option 212,
allowing troubleshooting of HS-PDSCH and associated channels.

Both the North American Digital Cellular (NADC) and Personal
Digital Cellular (PDC) measurement personalities are included in
this option. The NADC measurements are structured according to
the IS-136 TDMA standard. Measurements included in this option
are:
• adjacent channel power (ACP)
• error vector magnitude (EVM)
• occupied bandwidth (available for PDC only)
Built-in Measuring Receiver Personality (Option 233)
This option is the key component that converts the general-purpose
PSA Series high-performance spectrum analyzer into the flexible
N5531S measuring receiver. The PSA-based measuring receiver is an
ideal tool for signal generator/attenuator calibrations up to 50 GHz,
with special functions including:
• Frequency counter
• Absolute RF power
• Tuned RF level
• AM depth, FM/PM deviation
• Modulation distortion
• Audio analysis (optional)
See page 108 for details about the PSA-based measuring receiver.
N9039A RF Preselector Control for EMI Receiver
(Option 239)
Option 239 for the PSA is the personality enabling it to be used in
conjunction with Agilent’s N9039A RF Preselector to be configured
as a CISPR 16-1-1 compliant EMI receiver. This personality controls
the preselector during measurements and enables the alignment of
the preselector to the PSA using an Agilent approved source. The
personality allows the PSA to control settings within the preselector
like attenuation and gain from within the PSA and minimize the
need for user interaction with the preselector. The personality also
provides measurements unique to the capability of the receiver like
“zoom display” and “measure at marker” which allow the user to
view and measure the noise characteristics of frequency suspects
while in a large span.
See page 141 for details about the PSA-based EMI measurement
receiver.

N5531S
N5532A
PSA-based Measuring Receiver, N5531S
• Absolute RF power: Accuracy of a modern digital power meter
combined with a specially designed sensor module using 848x
thermal-couple power sensor
• Tuned RF level (TRFL): measurement sensitivity of as low as
–140 dBm1 with level accuracy exceeding source/attenuator
calibration requirements
• Frequency counter: 0.001 Hz frequency resolution and up to
–100 dBm sensitivity (manual mode)
• Analog modulation analysis: AM, FM, and M to verify correct
source modulation index and distortion
• Optional audio analysis capabilities with high-impedance
audio input
• N5532A sensor modules with single input connection up to
50 GHz for accuracy, productivity, and repeatability
• Remote control through SCPI commands
Combining with P-Series power meter’s accuracy and the
PSA’s outstanding linearity, the N5531S provides superior absolute
RF amplitude specifications to meet or exceed the most challenging
requirements for calibrating the signal sources. The excellent sensitivity of the N5531S in tuned RF level (TRFL) measurements allows
the users to calibrate step attenuators with the widest dynamic
range within the demanded measurement uncertainty and speed.
As the input signal level to the measurement receiver decreases, the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) will have increasingly significant
contribution to the measurement uncertainty. Taking the SNR into
account, the N5531S provides comprehensive TRFL level accuracy
specifications across the entire measurement range, which offers
realistic confidence for your measurement results.

N5531S Measuring Receiver
The Agilent N5531S measuring receiver is comprised of a PSA
high-performance spectrum analyzer with Option 233 (Built-in
measuring receiver personality), a P-series precision power meter
(N1911A/12A), and an N5532A sensor module. It combines multiple
precision measurement functions into one compact, integrated
system that set the new standards for metrology grade of RF,
microwave, and millimeter-wave signal measurement up to 50 GHz.
The available key measurements include: frequency counter,
absolute RF power, TRFL, AM depth, FM deviation, M deviation,
modulation rate, and modulation distortion. Additionally, audio
measurements are also available (with Option 107 being installed to
the PSA), which include audio frequency counter, audio level, and
audio distortion/SINAD measurements.
The N5531S offers superb analog modulation analysis capabilities that enable the users to quantify their signal sources’ modulation accuracy at the metrology-grade level for the carrier signal
frequency as high as 50 GHz. The measurement parameters, such
as filter bandwidth and the number of averages, can be manually set
by pressing the PSA front panel keys to optimize the modulation
analysis. Different speed settings also allow the users for the best
compromise between the measurement speed and accuracy.
Metrology and Calibration Applications
The N5531S is a successor to the legacy 8902A measuring receiver
and extends the frequency coverage to 50 GHz. The N5531S offers
superior accuracy, exceedingly wide dynamic range, repeatability,
and traceability mandated by metrology and calibration labs. By
placing the receiver measurements and controls directly into the
PSA, the need for an external computer is eliminated – providing a
more compact measuring receiver system.
The built-in measuring receiver personality (Option 233)
installed in the PSA enables users to set the measurement parameters and to initiate the measurement via the PSA’s front panel. One
button pressing can switch between the measuring receiver mode to
other modes, such as spectrum analysis, easily and quickly.
Measurement results are shown on the PSA’s display.
English URL www.agilent.com/find/products
The optional audio analysis capability of the N5531S (PSA
Option 107), based on the latest digital signal processing technologies, provides ideal tool to characterize audio signals. A large set of
preconditioning filters, including the CCITT filter (PSA Option 23B),
helps users to achieve the best possible audio analysis and to measure their audio signals against the regulations.

Signal Analysis
PSA-based Measuring Receiver, N5531S (cont.)
Signal Characterization
The N5531S is also an excellent research and development lab tool
for accurately characterizing signals from 100 kHz to 50 GHz. Level
measurements down to –140 dBm with superb accuracy and linearity makes the N5531S ideal for testing various RF, microwave, and
millimeter devices.
As the N5531S measuring receiver consists of a PSA high-performance spectrum analyzer and a P-Series power meter, its users
can gain full benefits from the stand-alone instruments. With other
optional measurement personalities, the PSA can help you to analyze complex digitally modulated signals used in the modern wireless communications, such as W-CDMA, HSDPA/HSUPA, cdma2000,
TD-SCDMA, and GSM/EDGE, or to conduct one-button tests for
phase noise and noise figure.

N5532A Sensor Modules with Single Input
Connection
Four types of sensor modules were designed specifically for use with
the N5531S measuring receiver to cover different frequency bands:
N5532A-504 (100 kHz to 4.2 GHz), N5532A-518 (10 MHz to 18 GHz),
N5532A-526 (30 MHz to 26.5 GHz), and N5532A-550 (30 MHz to 50
GHz). With these sensor modules, you can characterize the absolute
amplitudes of a signal without switching back and forth between the
power meter and PSA’s RF input, which helps to ensure your measurement integrity. While the N5532A sensor module have exactly
same form factor as those used for the 8902A (11722A or 11792A),
they have been mechanically and electronically improved for better
reliability, sensibility, and repeatability.
Each N5532A sensor module is shipped with its specific calibration factor data file that will be loaded and saved to the PSA to

Time-gated signal analysis is another standard feature that
allows you to easily measure time-varying signals such as pulsed
RF, time-division multiple access (TDMA), interleaved and burstmodulated. The 85902A burst carrier trigger can supply a TTL
trigger signal.
8560EC series specifications have been enhanced. Now, you can
get better phase noise, sensitivity, dynamic range and frequency
response from this midrange performance portable spectrum analyzer family.
The 8562EC spectrum analyzer provides a 13.2 GHz frequency
range with increased dynamic range and third-order intercept (TOI)
capability. This allows wireless communications engineers to test
high-performance components in burst operation systems.
With the 85672A spurious response measurements utility, you
can use 8560EC series spectrum analyzers to make fast and easy
spurious response tests.
For more information on RF communications measurement
capabilities, refer to page 114.
Fast Digital Resolution Bandwidths
Digitally-implemented resolution bandwidths of 1, 3, 10, 30 and
100 Hz allow the 8560EC series spectrum analyzers to sweep from
3 to 600 times faster than is possible with comparable analog filters.
A narrow 5:1 shape factor allows you to view close-in, low-level
signals easily. Digital bandwidths also provide the spectrum analyzer
with a full 100 dB on-screen calibrated display.

8560EC
8560EC Series Spectrum Analyzers
The 8560EC series portable spectrum analyzers offer the measurement capabilities and performance traditionally found only in larger,
more expensive benchtop analyzers. These spectrum analyzers
combine outstanding phase noise, sensitivity, 1 Hz resolution bandwidths and wide dynamic range in a Class 3 MIL-rugged package
built to withstand harsh environmental conditions.
Capabilities for RF Communications
The ability to measure adjacent channel power (ACP) on wireless
telephones, pagers and other transmitters is critical in both R&D
and manufacturing. The 8560EC series spectrum analyzers offer
a complete solution for ACP testing of burst carrier signals using
digital modulation such as is used in NADC-TDMA, GSM, DECT,
CT2-CAI, PDC and PHS systems. Many of the implementation difficulties of the established standards have been addressed, providing
fast, accurate and easy-to-use ACP measurement capability.
Measure W-CDMA adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) with a
dynamic range of at least 70 dB using the 8563E-K35 ACPR test set.
Another standard feature is the ability to measure from 0.10 to
99.99 percent occupied bandwidth.
Additionally, the carrier power and channel power measurements for both continuous and burst signals are also available as
the standard features of the 8560EC Series spectrum analyzers.

The Agilent BenchLink Spectrum Analyzer PC software provides an
easy-to-use communications link between your PC and the 8560EC
series spectrum analyzers. Taking full advantage of the Windows
interface, you can easily transfer screen images or trace data via the
GPIB interface, thereby making it easy to capture, analyze and
document measurement results in your PC. Order Option B70 or
E4444A for this PC software.
Precision Frequency and Amplitude
Measure frequencies accurately using the built-in frequency counter.
A standard precision frequency reference, with an aging rate of 1 x
10–7 per year, and 1 Hz counter resolution provide confidence in measurement accuracy. At 1 GHz, frequency accuracy of ±135 Hz after a
15-minute warmup is achieved.
Amplitude measurement uncertainty can be reduced using the
amplitude correction (AMPCOR) feature. AMPCOR allows you to
enter up to 200 amplitude correction points to compensate for
sources of amplitude uncertainty, such as cable losses, preamplifier
gain and spectrum analyzer frequency response. After developing a
table of correction data, amplitudes that have been referenced to a
power meter can be read directly on the spectrum analyzer display.
Digitized, Fast Time-Domain Sweeps
Digitized fast time-domain (zero span) sweeps use markers, trace
math, trace storage and get hardcopy output, for measurements
such as rise/fall times, pulse widths and time between events.

8560EC RF Spectrum Analyzer
85671A Phase Noise Measurement Utility
The 8560EC offers excellent performance for RF design, manufacturing and service applications. The 8560EC has a frequency range
of 30 Hz to 2.9 GHz. It has synthesized tuning for drift-free accurate
measurements.
This downloadable program transforms your 8560EC Series spectrum
analyzer into a phase noise tester. It eliminates the task of handdrawing phase noise plots. To measure oscillator phase noise, you can
generate graphs of phase noise (dBc/Hz) versus log offset frequency
without having to manually tune to multiple frequency offsets. Other
productivity features include direct phase noise readout, variable
filtering (for controlling trade-offs between measurement repeatability
and speed), calculation of RMS noise (displayed in radians and
degrees), spot-frequency measurements (phase noise measurements at
a single offset frequency) and digitized hardcopy and storage.
8562EC RF Spectrum Analyzer
The 8562EC is a midrange performance spectrum analyzer that provides the frequency and dynamic range needed for high-speed digital wireless communication applications. It allows manufacturing
and R&D engineers to test network components with state-of-the-art
performance. The 8562EC has a frequency range of 30 Hz to 13.2 GHz,
which covers the spur-search ranges specified by leading standards
organizations in Europe and in the United States.

8563EC Microwave Spectrum Analyzer
The 8563EC extends the outstanding features and capabilities of the
8560EC Series RF spectrum analyzers into the microwave frequency
range. The 8563EC has a standard frequency range of 9 kHz to
26.5 GHz (preselected from 2.75 GHz to 26.5 GHz), with optional
low-end frequency coverage to 30 Hz. The image-enhanced, doublebalanced harmonic mixer of the 8563EC achieves noise-figure performance similar to that of a fundamentally-mixed front end.
Use the 85671A phase
noise utility to easily
characterize noise sidebands of an oscillator.
8564EC and 8565EC Millimeter-Wave Spectrum Analyzers
Whether you want to measure the third harmonic of a 15 GHz oscillator
or the noise sidebands of a 38 GHz carrier, the 8564EC and 8565EC
make spectrum analysis easier than ever before. A single coaxial connection is all you need to measure signals from 30 Hz to 50 GHz. Preselection minimizes images and multiple responses at higher frequencies.
The 8564EC has a frequency range of 9 kHz to 40 GHz, the
8565EC of 9 kHz to 50 GHz. Both have optional low-end coverage to
30 Hz and are preselected above 2.75 GHz.
8563E-K35 Adjacent Channel Power Ratio Test Set
Use this special option with the 8562EC/63EC/64EC/65EC spectrum
analyzers to increase the dynamic range of ACP measurements.
8563E-K35 uses an alternate first converter mixer with custom
filtering to increase the spectrum analyzer’s ACPR measurement
dynamic range. The dynamic range becomes at least 70 dB for
systems with a guard band between channels of 900 kHz or greater.
This meets the needs of W-CDMA specifications. Control menus are
integrated into the spectrum analyzer softkeys making the test set
easy to use.
85672A Spurious Response Measurements Utility
The 85672A is a downloadable program on a card that inserts directly
into any 8560EC Series spectrum analyzer. This test utility provides
fast and easy spurious response test capability for all of 8560EC
Series spectrum analyzers. Test setup time can be drastically reduced
for manufacturing and R&D engineers with this one-button solution.

Midrange Spectrum Analyzers, 8560EC Series (cont.)
• Accurate, automated ACP measurements on TDMA and TDD signals
• Measure according to NADC-TDMA, PDC, PHS, and other
standards
• Measurement accelerators speed up ACP testing
• Carrier on/off power
• Total channel power, percent occupied bandwidth
• Burst-timing measurements
Accurate and Easy-to-Use Power Measurements
Using the 8560EC Series Spectrum Analyzers
Many wireless communications systems employ burst-carrier techniques such as time division multiple access (TDMA) and time division
duplex (TDD) to maximize system capacity. The 8560EC series
spectrum analyzers offer power measurements for both continuous
and burst signals that are accurate, and easy to make. Measurement
capability includes adjacent channel power (ACP), carrier power,
channel power, and occupied bandwidth. These analyzers provide the
greatest measurement flexibility and RF performance, making them
powerful tools for R&D designers working with current wireless standards, or on systems with standards still under development.
The 8562EC Spectrum Analyzer
3
The 8562EC Spectrum Analyzer was designed specifically for digital
communications. Its frequency coverage of 13.2 GHz means that now
you can use the same analyzer for harmonic and spurious testing
both in- and out-of-band. The increased dynamic range and thirdorder intercept (TOI) capability allows wireless communications
engineers to test high-performance components in burst operation
systems. See page 111 for details.
Measurement Utility Increases Speed and Repeatability
The 85672A Spurious Response Measurements Utility makes measurements fast and easy with the touch of a button. Works on all
8560EC series spectrum analyzers. See page 111 for details.
Adjacent Channel Power
The ability to measure ACP on wireless telephones, pagers, and
other transmitters is critical in R&D, manufacturing and in the field.
The 8560EC series spectrum analyzers provide ACP measurements
for a variety of wireless communication systems, including support
for NADC-TDMA, PDC, and PHS digital formats. Many of the
implementation difficulties of the established standards have been
addressed, providing fast, accurate, and easy-to-use ACP measurements. Use an 8560EC series spectrum analyzer with the 8563ECK35 APCR test set to meet the needs of the W-CDMA specifications.
In addition to the standard analog method for making ACP
measurements (used for FM mobile telephones and continuous digital formats), the analyzers support four other methods used for
burst-carrier measurements of TDMA and TDD signals:
• Peak (for PDC and PHS)
• Two-bandwidth (for PDC)
• Time-gated (for NADC-TDMA)
• Burst-power (an Agilent proprietary method)
The burst-power method overcomes many of the problems of
the other standards, and is suitable for all formats. These methods
can easily be adapted to measure other transmitters besides those
used for cellular or cordless telephones. Configuration parameters
that can be set by the user include channel spacing and bandwidth,
number of alternate channels, burst period and width, and values for
root-raised-cosine frequency weighting. Measurement results can be
displayed in both graphic and tabular formats for ease of data interpretation and documentation. Measurement accelerators are available that give ACP results in just a few seconds, allowing real-time
transmitter adjustments.
Carrier Power
The carrier power feature provides the user with a quick means of
measuring the average “on” and “off” power of the burst carrier. This
measurement is performed in the time domain, using zero span.
Channel Power
The channel power feature quickly provides the user with information on total power within a specified channel bandwidth, as well
as power density within the channel. This feature greatly simplifies this common measurement, as the spectrum analyzer automatically performs the necessary integration across the desired
frequency band.
Occupied Bandwidth
Occupied bandwidth is a way of determining the spectral spread of
a signal. It is defined as the bandwidth which contains the specified
percent of the total transmitted power. The user may specify the percentage to be anywhere from 0.1 to 99.99 percent.
Burst Timing
Complete timing measurements can be made on the burst-carrier
signal using digitized, fast time-domain (zero span) sweeps. Using
sweep times as fast as 50 µs, edge times, burst width, and time
between bursts can easily be measured.

Time Gating
Eliminating the Compromise Between Speed and
Performance
The MXA signal analyzer drives signal and spectrum analysis to the
next level by offering the highest performance in a midrange analyzer and the industry’s fastest signal and spectrum analysis.
Fastest Signal Analysis
Design validation and manufacturing floor engineers and managers
agree that measurement speed is most critical in achieving their test
goals. With this in mind, Agilent continues to compare the MXA’s
measurement speed against other signal and spectrum analyzers in
the industry. The measurement results reveal that the MXA is 30 to
300% faster than other signal or spectrum analyzer regardless of the
frequency range. Following are some key benchmark results.
• <14 ms W-CDMA ACLR fast mode measurement speed
( = 0.2 dB)
• <5 ms marker peak search
• <51 ms tune, measure, and transfer over GPIB
• <75 ms measurement/mode switching speed for seamless
switching between mobile WiMAX, W-CDMA, HSDPA/HSUPA,
phase noise, and 89601A VSA (vector signal analysis) software
Highest Performance in a Midrange Signal Analyzer
Fast measurement speed doesn’t mean compromising dynamic
range. The MXA has the best-in-class dynamic range:
• +15 dBm third-order intercept (TOI)
• –154 dBm/Hz displayed average noise level (DANL)
• 78 dB W-CDMA ACLR dynamic range
With a 2 dB step mechanical attenuator or optional 1 dB step
electrical attenuator and 160 resolution bandwidth settings (in 10%
incremental steps), the MXA provides you with the best combination
of speed and dynamic range.
Electronic Attenuator
The optional 3 GHz electronic attenuator is able to withstand
millions of switches. The combination of exceptional measurement
speed, user-definable pass/fail capability, and excellent repeatability,
due to an all digital IF technology, make the MXA ideal for highvolume, low-cost manufacturing.

button, a mathematical algorithm is executed that automatically
changes the analyzer’s center frequency to the strongest signal in
the tunable span of the analyzer. It also adjusts the span to three
times the occupied bandwidth of the signal, sets the resolution and
video bandwidth, optimizes the reference level, performs a peak
search, sets a maker on the peak, and displays the measurement
result.

The Agilent 89600 series vector signal analysis software characterizes complex modulated, time varying signals with detailed and
simultaneous spectrum, modulation and time waveform analysis
tools. Use these tools to uncover signal anomalies you couldn’t see
before.
Measurements include: time, gated time, spectrum, power
spectral density, CCDF and CDF, auto-correlation and more. These
tools help you easily troubleshoot pulsed and hopping signals.
The 89600 VSA software offers markers which display current
location, calculate offset (delta) values, provide frequency counter
capability, integrate between two lines to determine bandpower, calculate occupied bandwidth (OBW), let you set up zones to calculate
adjacent channel power (ACPR), and conduct limit tests. Markers
can be coupled across displays (up to six simultaneously), allowing
you to “walk” through your signal and see its behavior in multiple
domains — a very powerful and useful feature.
Characterize intentionally and unintentionally-modulated
AM/PM/FM signals in both the frequency and time domains. Check
phase, amplitude and frequency trajectories of pulsed signals, make
phase noise measurements, uncover interference and more.
The 89600 VSA software lets you capture your digitized signal
in your measurement hardware. Then, link it to a supported Agilent
signal generator for signal stimulus. Record the signal at one
frequency, and using the zoom mode feature, transfer the signal to
the generator at a different frequency. Control key features of the
signal generator from the 89600 VSA software front panel.
The 89600 VSA software comes fully equipped to control
and process two base band or two RF channels. Powerful and
sophisticated trace data provide you with the basic capabilities to
perform MIMO-analysis. Use these tools to develop and analyze complex multi-antenna, radar, or signal surveillance systems. Check
hardware specifications to determine which hardware platform
configurations support multiple channels (literature #5989-1753EN.)
Take advantage of Agilent’s flexible licensing capability for the
89600 VSA software. A software license is the key that unlocks the
powerful measurement capability of the 89600 software on your PC.
Floating (89601AN), node-locked (89601A), and limited term
(89601N12) licenses are available, depending on your need.
View constellation diagrams, make I/Q quality measurements
(imbalance, quadrature error, offset) and more. The Agilent 89600

may not be available in other economy-class analyzers. Further, the
ESA has excellent frequency readout accuracy, a function of the
frequency reference error as well as the span error coefficient, RBW,
center frequency, and number of sweep points.
Measuring Low Level Signals such as Spurs
The ESA offers top performance thanks to its optional built in low
noise, high gain preamplifier. Achieving a Displayed Average Noise
Level (DANL) of better than –167 dBm.
Measuring Lower Level Signals Next to Higher Power
Signals
A spectrum analyzers dynamic range is a function of both its displayed
average noise level (DANL) performance and its intermodulation
distortion performance. The ESA third order intermodulation
distortion performance is +16 dBm third order intercept (TOI)
(+7.5 for basic analyzer configurations). In addition, the ESA
features a standard 5 dB step attenuator making it easy to optimize
the spectrum analyzer’s mixer level settings to achieve the best

Remotely Control and Monitor the ESA over the Internet
BenchLink web remote control (Option 230) enables you to remotely control your instrument over the internet or intranet. The
software operates on a locally-networked computer connected to
the ESA by GPIB. The ESA can then be controlled remotely from any
client computer on the internet or intranet with a standard
web browser.
The ESA simplifies the task of making common power measurements through its built-in power measurements. These measurement functions are easy to use.
129
Segmented sweep allows you to view up to 32 discontinuous segments of the spectrum with varying levels of resolution at the same
time. This feature allows you to view problem spots at the same time
and save time while doing so by eliminating the need to retune or
make long sweeps (standard and communication test analyzers
only).
Log Sweep
The log sweep function on the ESA makes it very easy to set up limit
lines and view the spectrum in log scale. This is useful for meeting
test requirements, such as CISPR, that specify requirements on a log
scale (standard and communication test analyzers only).
Amplitude Corrections
Making amplitude corrections for cables, antennas, external mixers
or other peripherals used with the ESA is simple using the ESA’s
built-in amplitude correction tables. Simply populate the ESA’s
amplitude correction table with correction factors and then turn the
corrections on. Up to 4 correction tables may be loaded and applied
at any one time. Add correction factors for cables, antennas, or other
devices.

11970 Series Harmonic Mixers
The 11970 series waveguide mixers are general-purpose harmonic
mixers. They employ a dual-diode design to achieve flat-frequency
response and low conversion loss. These are achieved without external dc bias or tuning stubs. Manual operation and computercontrolled hardware operation are simplified because mixer bias
and tuning adjustments are not required.
11970 series harmonic mixers are available in six bands (15 to 17 dBm LO)
11970, 11974 Series Mixers
Eliminate the need for signal identification at millimeter frequencies.
The Agilent 11974 series mixers are preselected from 26.5 to 75 GHz
for faster, easier testing of millimeter devices and systems. Preselection reduces mixer overload from broadband signals and reduces
radiation of local oscillator harmonics back to the device under test.
Equipment operators can quickly locate true signals, and software
development for automated measurements is greatly simplified.
These mixers feature advanced barium-ferrite technology and
come with a standalone power supply. They are particularly useful
for broadband millimeter signal analysis, millimeter electromagnetic interference (EMI) measurements, and unattended monitoring of
millimeter signals.

8447A and 8447D Amplifiers
Protect the input circuits of spectrum analyzers, counters, amplifiers
and other instruments from high power levels with minimal effect on
measurement performance. The 11867A RF limiter (dc to 1.8 GHz)
reflects signals up to 10 W average power and 100 W peak power.
Insertion loss is less than 0.75 dB. The N9355/56 series microwave
limiters cover frequency ranges from 10 MHz to 18 GHz (N9355B/56B),
to 26.5 GHz (N9355C/56C), and to 50 GHz (N9355F), respectively. They
provide the best broadband input power protection to sensitive RF and
microwave instruments with low insertion loss. Typical limiting
threshold for the N9355 limiters is 10 dBm and that for the N9356 is
25 dBm.
The Agilent 8447A and 8447D are low-noise, high gain amplifiers
used to improve the sensitivity of counters, spectrum analyzers, RF
voltmeters, EMI meters, power meters and other devices. They will
also increase the maximum power available from a signal generator
or sweeper.

Increase Measurement Throughput
In manufacturing environments, fast measurement speed and
repeatability are critical. The NFA series of Noise Figure Analyzers
include many features that can reduce your measurement time and
increase throughput. The frequency list function allows you to select
specific points within a complete measurement span to make your
measurement. The Sweep averaging function allows a real-time
update to the screen during a measurement, as you adjust the performance of the DUT during a sweep. Both these functions, as well
as the limit line functionality for quick and easy pass/fail testing and
the additional ability to recall complete calibrated instrument
states, increase productivity and measurement throughput.
Enhanced Connectivity
The built-in floppy disk drive, GPIB, RS232 serial and Printer port
connectors allow data transfer between the analyzer and a PC or
workstation. There is also a built-in VGA connector for connecting a
large-screen monitor.
Color Graphical Display
To enhance usability, the Noise Figure Analyzers come with an integrated 17 cm full color LCD display, for simultaneous viewing of
noise figure and gain against frequency. There are three different
formats for viewing measurements, the two separate channel or
combined graph format, a table format, and a spot frequency noise
figure and gain measurement “meter” format.

NFA Series
A Flexible and Intuitive User Interface
The user interface on the NFA series of Noise Figure Analyzers is
intuitive and easy to use, with easy to find keys, which are sized and
then placed in the relevant key group according to function. The
soft-key depths have been kept to a minimum and there are clear
visual indicators on the screen showing the current machine state.
Easy Measurement Setup
The NFA series of Noise Figure Analyzers now takes the pain out of
complex measurement setups, with their simple but instructive
menus. The built-in help button gives key function and remote
programming commands, that should eliminate the need to carry
manuals when setting up measurements.
Low Instrumentation Uncertainty
When making noise figure measurements, a key parameter to
be aware of is measurement uncertainty. The NFA has a low
instrumentation uncertainty to aid in accurate and repeatable
measurement of manufacturers’ components. In addition, to aid
customers in setting their components/systems specifications,
Agilent has produced a web-based uncertainty calculator that will
give customers information on how to improve and classify their
measurement specifications more accurately.
For more information, visit our web site at: www.agilent.com/find/nf
English URL www.agilent.com/find/products
The NFA series of Noise Figure Analyzers include 2 industry-standard GPIB ports and an RS232 serial port, to aid in the automated
control of the instrument. The second GPIB port is dedicated to
Local oscillator control. The default control language is SCPI, but
users can also define custom LO commands.
Ease of Integration
To aid with the integration of the analyzer into manufacturing
environments, Agilent has produced a Programmers Reference
Manual containing example programs to help migrate to the new
system. The NFA is not code compatible with the 8970B, nor can it
control the 8971C.

parameters of nonlinear behavior, such as
gain compression and AM-to-PM. They can
also measure frequency translation devices
by offsetting the receivers for the source
stimulus. Additionally, the source can be
pulsed to produce pulsed S-parameters.
Overview
Network Analyzers
Agilent network analyzers are instruments
that measure transfer and/or impedance
functions of linear networks through
sine-wave testing (see Figure 2). A network
analyzer system accomplishes these
measurements by configuring its various
components around the device-under-test.
The first requirement of the measurement
system is a sine-wave signal source to stimulate the device-under-test. Since transfer and
impedance functions are ratios of various
voltages and currents, a means of separating
the appropriate signals from the measurement ports of the device-under-test is
required. Finally, the network analyzer itself
must detect the separated signals, form the
desired signal ratios and display the results.
3
Why Network Analysis?
Characterizing the behavior of linear
electrical networks that will be stimulated by
arbitrary signals and interfaced with a
variety of other networks is a fundamental
problem in both synthesis and test processes.
For example, the engineer designing a multicomponent network must predict with some
certainty, from knowledge of the individual
components, the final network performance.
Similarly, a production manager must know
allowable tolerances on the products manufactured and whether the final products meet
the specified tolerances. Network analysis
offers a solution to these problems through
complete description of linear network
behavior in the frequency domain.
Additionally, some network analyzers offer
the capability to transform measurement
data, taken in the frequency domain, to the
time domain, providing further insight into
the behavior of linear networks.
Network analysis accomplishes the
description of both active and passive
networks by creating a data model of such
component parameters as impedances and
transfer functions. However, these
parameters not only vary as a function of
frequency but are also complex variables in
that they have both magnitude and phase
(see Figure 1). Swept network analyzers
measure magnitude and phase (the total
complex quantity) as a function of
frequency with less difficulty than
conventional CW measurements.
Impedance and transfer functions then can
be displayed conveniently on an internal
display, or on peripherals such as a printer.
Thus, network analysis satisfies the
engineering need to characterize the
behavior of linear networks quickly, accurately, and completely over broad frequency
ranges. Agilent Technologies manufactures
a full line of scalar network analyzers
(magnitude only) and vector network
analyzers (both magnitude and phase).

amplifier is read directly with a Smith Chart display.
Figure 1: Simultaneous wideband and narrowband
sweep of a microwave filter, showing magnitude and
deviation from linear phase.
What is Network Analysis?
Network analysis is the process of creating
a data model of the transfer and/or
impedance characteristics of a linear
network through stimulus-response testing
over the frequency range of interest. All
network analyzers in the Agilent product
line operate according to this definition.
At frequencies above 1 MHz, lumped
elements actually become “circuits”
consisting of the basic elements plus
parasitics like stray capacitance, lead
inductance, and unknown absorptive losses.
Since parasitics depend on the individual
device and its construction, they are almost
impossible to predict. Above 1 GHz
component geometries are comparable to a
signal wavelength, intensifying the variance
in circuit behavior due to device construction.
Network analysis has classically been
limited to the definition of linear networks.
Since linearity constrains networks
stimulated by a sine wave to produce a
sine-wave output, sine-wave testing is an
ideal method for characterizing magnitude
and phase response as a function of frequency.
Modern network analyzers use sine-wave
power sweeps to characterize certain
Signal Sources and Signal
Separation
In the general case, any sine-wave
source meeting the network analyzer’s
specifications can be used to stimulate the
device-under-test. If the analyzer is capable
of swept measurements, great economies in
time can be achieved by stimulating the
device-under-test with a sweep oscillator or
synthesized sweeper. Most Agilent network
analyzers contain internal, synthesized
sources with excellent frequency
resolution. Swept measurements allow
quick and easy characterization of devices
over broad frequency ranges.
At high frequencies the problem of
signal separation usually involves traveling
waves on transmission lines and becomes
correspondingly more difficult. Agilent
network analyzers employ both internal
and external test sets applicable for
separating the appropriate traveling
waves in a variety of high-frequency
measurements.

Complete Characterization of Linear Networks (cont.)
Broadband and Narrowband
Detection
After the desired signals have been
obtained from the test set, they must be
detected by the network analyzer; Agilent
network analyzers can use one of two
detection methods. Broadband detection
accepts the full-frequency spectrum of the
input signal, while narrowband detection
involves tuned receivers that convert CW or
swept-RF signals to a constant-IF signal.
There are certain advantages to each
detection scheme.
Scalar analyzers usually employ
broadband detection techniques.
Broadband detection reduces instrument
cost by eliminating the IF section required
by narrowband analyzers but sacrifices
noise and harmonic rejection. However,
noise is not a factor in many applications.
Finally, broadband systems can make
measurements where the input and output
signals are not of the same frequency, as in
the measurement of the insertion loss of
mixers and frequency doublers.
Vector network analyzers normally
employ narrowband detection techniques.
Narrowband detection makes a more
sensitive low noise detection of the constant
IF possible. This allows increased accuracy
and dynamic range for frequency-selective
measurements (as compared to broadband
systems).
Vector network analyzers can vary with
their employment of broadband, narrowband, or both types of detection. When both
types of detection are available, the user
selects the detection method, which allows
optimization of the device measurements.
Relative ratio measurements are
usually made in dB, which is the log ratio of
an unknown signal (Test Channel) with a
chosen reference signal (Reference
Channel). This allows the full dynamic range
of the instrumentation to be used in measuring variations of both high- and low-level
circuit responses. For example, 0 dB implies
the two signal levels have a ratio of unity,
while ±20 dB implies a 10:1 voltage ratio
between two signals.
All network analyzer phase measurements are relative measurements with the
reference channel signal considered to have
zero phase. The analyzer then measures the
phase difference of the test channel with
respect to the reference channel.
Phase information complements
amplitude data in the measurement of device
parameters. Phase is more sensitive to network
behavior and it is a required component of
complex impedance and transfer functions.
Phase data is also required to measure
delay distortion or group delay of networks.
Delay distortion occurs when different frequency components of a complex waveform
experience nonlinear phase shifts as they
are transmitted through a network. Group
delay (see Figure 4) is a measure of this
distortion and is defined as:
–
Tgd = d
d

response and passband reflection return loss.

the ratio of b1/a1, if a2 = 0 (port 2 terminated
in its characteristic impedance). S21 is the
complex transmission coefficient from port
1 to port 2, b2/a1, if a2 = 0. The “a’’ and “b’’
signals represent the amplitude and phase of
the incident and emerging or reflected
traveling waves. By reversing the ports and
terminating port 1 in its characteristic
impedance, S22 and S12 can be similarly
defined.
Additional Capabilities
Signal Processing and Display
Once the RF has been detected, the network
analyzer must process the detected signals
and display the measured quantities (see
Figure 3). All Agilent network analyzers are
multi-channel receivers utilizing a reference channel and at least one test channel;
absolute signal levels in the channels,
relative signal level (ratios) between the
channels, or relative phase difference
between channels can be measured,
depending on the analyzer.
Scattering parameters, or S-parameters,
were developed to characterize linear
networks at high frequencies. S-parameters
define the ratios of reflected and transmitted
traveling waves measured at the network
ports. A two-port device is modeled with
S-parameters (see Figure 5). S11 is the
complex reflection coefficient at port 1, and is
Figure 4: Direct measurement of group delay with
digital readout at marker.
An alternative method for measuring
phase distortion is deviation from linear
phase or differential phase. Deviations
from linear phase can be measured by
introducing enough electrical length in the
network analyzer’s reference channel to
linearize a device’s phase shift. This is
usually accomplished by using the electricaldelay feature of the network analyzer, which
cancels the average electrical length of a
device mathematically.
Precision design work and manufacturing
tolerances demand highly accurate
measurements, but most errors in network
measurements are complex quantities that
vary as a function of frequency. By
characterizing and virtually removing these
systematic errors, measurement accuracies
are improved by several orders of magnitude.
Agilent network analyzers contain built-in,
high-speed computational hardware that can
perform the complex mathematics required
for sophisticated error correction.
Computer-controlled network
analyzers can be programmed to set up and
make many measurements automatically.
The measurement process is further
accelerated by the computer’s ability to
store, transform, summarize, and output
data in a variety of formats to a number of
peripherals. These capabilities make the
computer-controlled network analyzer ideal
for both computer-aided design or automatic
production testing. Several products have
built-in automation features, including GP
Instrument BASIC. The PNA family of
network analyzers have an integrated
Windows® operating system. This provides
the user with powerful computer control
directly in the network analyzer.

solution for manufacturing and R&D engineers evaluating RF components and circuits from 9 kHz to 8.5 GHz, featuring an integrated
2- or 4-port, the highest performance, extended lower frequency
range and fastest speed in its class. The ENA Series significantly
reduces cost of test through its ability to cover such a wide frequency
range in a single instrument. The Agilent ENA series addresses a
broad array of component and circuit tests including EMC-related
applications and automotive, wireless communications, aerospace
and defense, education, and medical applications.
De Facto Industry Standard RF Network Analyzer
The ENA series is a replacement for the legacy de facto industry
standard: Agilent 8753 RF network analyzer. The lower-end frequency
is 9 kHz without built-in bias tees and 100 kHz with built-in bias tees.
Built-in bias tees and AUX inputs for DC measurements allow the
ENA series to replace Agilent 8753 in DC-biased measurement applications and amplifier test applications, respectively. The built-in
probe power also allows active probes to be used without an external probe power supply. In-circuit testing can be done using the
high-impedance probe.
Excellent Measurement Accuracy and Speed
The ENA series provides exceptional performance with industryleading dynamic range (123 dB), trace noise (0.004 dBrms at 70 kHz
IFBW) and fast measurement speed (39 ms at 1601 points, 2-port
full cal). The ENA’s measurement capabilities enables the design of
high performance components with a short cycle time.
Advanced Architecture for Multiport Component Test
Built-in 2, or 4 test ports provide simultaneous measurement of all
signal paths for components. This advanced architecture minimizes
the number of sweeps to complete a multiport S-parameter measurement and dramatically improves test throughput.

The ENA series offers the frequency-offset mode (FOM) that provides frequency-offset sweep, external signal source control, and
fixed IF/RF measurement capabilities. In addition, the ENA FOM
supports two mixer calibration techniques. The first technique is the
vector-mixer calibration (VMC) that corrects for directivity, source
match, load match, and reflection frequency response at each test
port by using a characterized calibration mixer with de-embedding
function. This calibration provides the most accurate measurements
of phase and absolute group delay. The second is the scalar-mixer
calibration (SMC) that offers the highest accuracy conversion
loss/gain measurement results while correcting the mismatches of
both input and output test ports.
Reducing Calibration Time Using ECal
The ENA series provides full 2- and 4-port calibration and improves
measurement accuracy of multiport devices. The ENA series supports various electronic calibration kits (ECal), including the
N4431B 4-port electronic calibration kit. The ECal automatically
performs the calibration procedure and minimizes operational
errors. The ECal module can be controlled by the ENA series via
USB interface without an external PC. The front USB port is available for the ECal module and can easily connect to a rack mounted
ENA. The ENA supports various ECal functions. After ECal calibration, performance can be verified using the ECal Confidence Check
function. The User-Characterization ECal function enables calibration with various adapters attached, increasing your calibration
flexibility.
Evolution of Test Automation, Built-In VBA
The ENA series accelerates test system development, expands customization capability and increases flexibility of test system integration. VBA is a powerful programming language that brings in a
new era of test automation. A test program can be developed in the
ENA Series by using the built-in VBA editor. This powerful programming tool helps you to accelerate test system development.
A custom user interface can be easily developed with the
graphical programming features of the VBA. This allows the limit
test results and instructions to be displayed and helps to avoid operational errors.
At times measurement parameters need to be calculated mathematically or processed statistically after data acquisition. The VBA
is also useful for such post processing. Unique analysis functions are
easily implemented using various VBA functions. This expands
analysis capability of the test equipment and fully meets test needs.

Throughput
Decreasing test time is often critical for success in manufacturing
environments. The PNA family has many attributes that help you
accomplish your throughput goals. The outstanding performance
of the analyzers starts with exceptionally fast sweeps that do not
sacrifice performance. Features such as segmented sweeps and limit
lines for pass/fail testing allow you to optimize test efficiency.
For devices that once required two to four instrument setups for
complete characterization, the PNA Series’ ability to have up to
thirty-two-measurement channels, each with its own stimulus and
response parameters, can also improve your test throughput.
When using Agilent’s electronic calibration (ECal) modules,
you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to perform calibrations, so you can spend more time measuring your devices. Simply
connect the ECal module to your test ports and let the analyzer
control and measure all the standards necessary for full two-port
calibration. These modules are controlled directly from the analyzer
via a USB connection.

Baseband, IF Network/Spectrum/Impedance Analyzer, 10 Hz to 500 MHz/10 Hz to 500 MHz/100 kHz to 500 MHz
• Full-vector network and spectrum measurement and analysis
• Wide dynamic range network measurement with fast
sweep speeds
• ±0.05 dB/±0.3° dynamic magnitude/phase accuracy
• Extremely fast narrowband spectrum measurement
• Impedance analysis option and test kit available
• –145 dBm/Hz sensitivity for spectrum analysis
• Built-in IBASIC for easy test automation
• Time-gated spectrum analysis option
• Color TFT display and built-in disk drive/RAM disk
Extremely Fast Spectrum Measurement
The 4395A features Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) digital-signalprocessing (DSP) technique for 20 to 100 times faster narrowband
spectrum measurement than swept-tuned spectrum analyzers. The
stepped FFT is performed for all RBW settings. For example, with
100 Hz RBW and 100 kHz span, the 4395A has a sweep time of 300 ms,
while swept-tuned spectrum analyzers take a few tens of seconds. The
stepped FFT can greatly improve the efficiency of narrowband spectrum measurement.
Time-Gated Spectrum Analysis
With Option 4395A-1D6, the 4395A offers time-gated spectrum analysis capability to capture and measure repetitive burst signals in video,
disk drives, communication equipment, and more. The minimum gate
length is 6 µ sec so that even narrow-burst signals can be analyzed.
Impedance Measurement Function
and RF Impedance Test Kit
A full-featured impedance measurement function (useful for quickcheck general-purpose impedance applications) can be added to the

4395A Specifications Summary
4395A with 87511A
4395A Network/Spectrum/Impedance Analyzer
The 4395A provides excellent vector network, spectrum and optional
impedance measurements for audio, baseband, HF, VHF, and IF
applications. When combined with a test set, the 4395A provides
reflection measurements, such as return loss, and SWR, and S parameters. Gain, phase, group delay, distortion, spurious, CN ratio, and
noise measurements often required for evaluating components and
circuits can be measured using one instrument. As a vector network
analyzer, the 4395A operates from 10 Hz to 500 MHz with 1 mHz
resolution and its integrated synthesized source provides –50 to
+15 dBm of output power with 0.1 dB resolution. The dynamic magnitude and phase accuracy are ±0.05 dB and ±0.3° so that it can
accurately measure gain and group delay flatness, which are becoming more important in modern electronics systems.
As a spectrum analyzer, the 4395A operates from 10 Hz to
500 MHz with resolution bandwidths (RBWs) spanning 1 Hz to
1 MHz in a 1-3-10 steps. A fully-synthesized local oscillator allows
stable and accurate frequency analysis. Direct A/D conversion (no
LOG amplifier is used) results in ±0.8 dB level accuracy (@ 50 MHz,
–20 dBm). Noise sidebands fall below –110 dBc/Hz @ 100 kHz offset
from carriers, while sensitivity is –145 dBm/Hz at 10 MHz.

• Full-vector network and spectrum measurement and analysis
• Wide dynamic range network measurement with fast sweep
speeds
• ±0.05 dB/±0.3° dynamic magnitude/phase accuracy
• Extremely fast narrowband spectrum measurement
• Impedance analysis option and test kit available
• ±1.0 dB level accuracy for spectrum analysis
• –150 dBm/Hz sensitivity for spectrum analysis

The stepped FFT is performed when the resolution bandwidth
(RBW) is set at 3 kHz or below. For example, with a 30 Hz RBW and
10 kHz span, the 4396B has a sweep time of 400 ms, while swepttuned spectrum analyzers take a few tens of seconds. The stepped
FFT can greatly improve the speeds of narrowband spectrum
measurement such as frequency tuning of a VCO or CN measurements.
Time-Gated Spectrum Analysis
With Option 4396B-1D6, the 4396B offers time-gated spectrum
analysis capability to capture and measure repetitive burst signals in
video, disk drives, communication equipment, and more. The minimum gate length is 2 µsec so that even narrow-burst signals can be
analyzed.
Impedance Measurement Function and
RF Impedance Test Kit
A full-featured impedance measurement function (useful for quickcheck general-purpose impedance applications) can be added to the
4396B by adding Option 4396B-010 and the 43961A RF impedance
test kit. Covering from 100 kHz to 1.8 GHz, impedance parameters
|Z|, , C, L, Q, D, and more, are directly measured and displayed.
The basic impedance accuracy (typical value) is 3%. The 43961A RF
impedance test kit is designed for the 4396B and is required to utilize
the features of Option 4396B-010. A 7 mm connector is mounted on
this kit for easy connection to an appropriate impedance test figure.
A wide variety of Agilent test fixtures can be used with the test kit,

4396B Specifications Summary
4396B with 85046A
4396B RF Network/Spectrum/Impedance
Analyzer
The 4396B provides excellent RF vector network, spectrum, and
optional impedance measurements for lab and production applications. When combined with a test set, the 4396B provides reflection
measurements, such as return loss, and SWR, and S-parameters.
Gain, phase, group delay, distortion, spurious, CN, and noise
measurements often required for evaluating components and circuits can be measured using one instrument. As a vector network
analyzer, the 4396B operates from 100 kHz to 1.8 GHz with 1 mHz
resolution and its integrated synthesized source provides –60 to +20
dBm of output power with 0.1 dB resolution. The dynamic magnitude
and phase accuracy are ±0.05 dB and ±0.3° so that it can accurately
measure gain and group delay flatness, which are becoming more
important in modern electronics systems.
As a spectrum analyzer, the 4396B operates from 2 Hz to 1.8 GHz
with resolution bandwidths (RBWs) spanning 1 Hz to 3 MHz in a
1-3-10 sequence. A fully-synthesized local oscillator allows stable
and accurate frequency analysis. Direct A/D conversion (no LOG
amplifier is used) results in ±1.0 dB overall level accuracy. Noise
sidebands fall below –105 dBc/Hz offset 10 kHz from carriers below
1 GHz, while sensitivity is –150 dBm/Hz at 10 MHz and –147
dBm/Hz at 1 GHz. In addition, with two independent display channels available, you can simultaneously view network and spectrum
(or transmission and reflection) characteristics of the device under
test in split-screen format. For example, an amplifier’s frequency
response (network measurement) and distortion (spectrum measurement) can be shown at the same time.

8757D Scalar Network Analyzers
Measure insertion loss, gain, return loss, SWR, and power quickly and
accurately with the 8757D scalar network analyzer. With high-performance detectors and directional bridges, and a companion source and
digital plotter, the 8757D is the basis of a complete measurement
system with superb performance.
The 8757D features three detector inputs and two independent
display channels, allowing simultaneous ratioed or non-ratioed
measurement of your device’s transmission and reflection characteristics, 75 dB dynamic range (+20 to –55 dBm) for measuring
high-rejection devices, and a choice between ac (square wave modulated) or dc detection techniques. The internal plotter/printer
buffer allows you to send your measurement data directly to a
plotter and then proceed to the next measurement, typically in less
than five seconds. The 8757D includes a user-friendly interface, and
menu-driven, direct-access softkeys, which simplify its operation.
It offers limit testing, external disk save/recall, and a color display. Limit testing reduces test time by letting the analyzer make
quick and objective pass/fail decisions. External disk save/recall
allows your measurement state to be preconfigured by an engineer
or skilled specialist and then automatically recalled by production
technicians. The result is reduced set-up time and greater test
integrity at each production station. The precision color display simplifies the separation of measurement information while providing
a pleasant display for the technician.

a dual-diode detector to improve power measurement accuracy when
harmonics are present, plus internal frequency correction factors,
read by the 8757D, for more accurate power versus frequency
measurements. The result is a system optimized for swept absolute
power measurements.

85037 Series Precision Detectors (ac/dc)
Reflection Measurement Accuracy
The 85037 series precision detectors are designed specifically for
operation with the 8757D scalar network analyzer and may be used
in either ac or dc detection modes. These dual diode detectors contain internal frequency correction factors in an internal EE PROM
(read automatically by the 8757D) for improved measurement accuracy versus frequency. When used in conjunction with the 8757D’s
internal power calibrator (Option 002), these detectors provide the
maximum absolute power measurement accuracy. The 85037 series
detector is not compatible with the 8757E.
Uncertainties due to calibration error and the frequency response of
the source, detectors, and bridges are removed via open/short averaging. The remaining uncertainties are primarily the sum of directivity uncertainty, effective source match uncertainty and dynamic
power accuracy. See Technical Data Sheet for further information.

Transmission Loss or Gain Measurement Accuracy
Transmission loss or gain measurements are made relative to a 0 dB
reference point established at calibration. Transmission measurement uncertainty = dynamic power accuracy + mismatch uncertainty.
Dynamic power accuracy is the measurement uncertainty due
to the change in power level between calibration and the measurement. Mismatch uncertainty is the uncertainty due to reflections in
the measurement setup. The frequency response errors of the source,
detectors, bridge and power splitter are removed via calibration.

Agilent Multiport Test Sets Extend Network Analysis
Capabilities to a Greater Number of Test Ports, Increase
Throughput, and Enable the Best Accuracy for your
Multiport Applications
Many of today’s wireless communications and broadband components have three, four or even more ports. These components
require multiple connections for complete characterization with a
two-port network analyzer. However, time-to-market pressures
require these multiport components to be tested quickly while maintaining high levels of accuracy and high repeatability to achieve the
desired production volumes. Multiport test sets used in conjunction
with standard network analyzers dramatically reduce overall tune
and test times because the DUT only needs to be connected once to
test multiple signal paths. Minimizing the number of connections
also reduces operator fatigue, and lowers the chance of connection
to the wrong port. In addition, fewer connections mean less wear
on cables, connectors, fixtures and DUTs. A multiport test set is
especially valuable in manufacturing applications where the time
required for device connection, handling, and/or configuration is
significantly greater than the test time.
Agilent provides high-performance multiport test solutions to
meet the demands of the never-ending trend to decrease size
through integration of modules, and the pressure to increase
throughput and lower test cost. A variety of solutions are available
for testing devices ranging from integrated front-end modules to
base station combiner/divider units to satellite manifolds. These
solutions combine hardware, firmware, and sometimes software,
plus electronic calibration, to provide high accuracy and fast
measurement speeds. For more information, contact your local
Agilent Field Engineer or visit www.agilent.com/find/multiport

Calibration Kits
Error-correction procedures require that the systematic errors in the
measurement system be characterized by measuring known devices
(standards) on the system over the frequency range of interest.
Agilent Technologies offers two types of calibration kits: mechanical
and electronic. For further information about these products, please
refer to the following web site www.agilent.com/find/accessories or
www.agilent.com/find/nacal
Electronic Calibration (ECal) Modules
Mechanical Calibration Kits
All network analyzer, coaxial mechanical calibration kits contain standards to characterize systematic errors. Many mechanical calibration
kits also contains adapters for test ports and a torque wrench for
proper connection. Mechanical calibration kits are divided into three
categories: economy, standard, and precision. Economy kits include a
fixed load. Standard kits include a sliding load or a series of offset
shorts. Precision kits contain TRL devices.
Electronic calibration (ECal) is a precision, single-connection, 1-,
2-, or 4-port calibration technique that uses fully traceable and verifiable electronic calibration modules. ECal provides repeatable,
accurate measurements while bringing convenience and simplicity
to your daily calibration routine. ECal replaces the traditional calibration technique that uses mechanical standards. With mechanical
standards, you are required to make numerous connections to the
test ports for a single calibration. These traditional calibrations
require intensive operator interaction, which is prone to errors.
ECal modules consist of a connector-specific calibration standard.
Modules are available with 3.5 mm, 7 mm, Type-N, Type-F, 2.92 mm,
2.4 mm, 1.85 mm and 7-16 connectors. Options exist for 2-port
modules with one male and one female connector (MOF), two male
(00M) or two female (00F) connectors. Four-port ECal modules
support both mixed-sex and mixed-connector-type configurations.
In addition to the standard factory characterizations of these connector configurations, users can characterize their ECal modules
with adapters on the test ports. The resulting user-characterization
data can then be saved into user memories within the ECal modules.
The adapters can serve as “connector savers” or be used to change
connector type or connector sex, giving maximum calibration
flexibility. The user-characterization feature can also bring the
convenience of ECal to fixture and wafer-probe environments.
The PNA and ENA Series of network analyzers can control
ECal modules directly using a USB connection. 8753 and 8720
network analyzers control ECal modules via the 85097B VNA
interface kit. For more information, refer to the ECal Product
Overview (literature number 5963-3743E).
PC Interface Module with Control Software
The 85097B consists of a VNA interface module, and power supply.
The interface module is the interface between the parallel port on
your 8753 or 8720 network analyzer, the ECal module, and the external power supply. The 85097B interfaces with the 8753E/ET/ES, the
8719D/ET/ES, the 8720D/ET/ES and the 8722D/ET/ES network
analyzers.
Mechanical Verification Kits
Measuring known devices, other than the calibration standards, is a
way of verifying that the network analyzer system is operating properly. Agilent offers verification kits that include precision airlines,
mismatch airlines, and precision fixed attenuators. Traceable measurement data, on disk, is shipped with each kit. Verification kits
may be recertified by Agilent Technologies. This recertification
includes a new measurement of all standards and new data with
uncertainties.

3.5-mm Test Set Ports
Cables
Test port cables provide the connection required when using network analyzers with various test devices and equipment. Test port
cables are available for two test configurations as shown below.
Configuration A utilizes a single test port cable for use when the
device under test (DUT) is connected directly to the port on the
test set. Configuration B utilizes two test port cables; which provides more flexibility since the DUT is connected between the test
port cables.

As timing and voltage margins continue to shrink, confidence in
signal integrity becomes an increasingly vital requirement of the
design verification process. With eye scan, you can have the same
eye-diagram capability in a logic analyzer that you have in your
scope, and it covers up to 510 channels at a time. Eye scan gives you
a rapid, comprehensive overview across hundreds of signals simultaneously.
Debug Real-time Code at the Source Level
• Correlate the logic analyzer trace with the high-level source code
that produced it
• Locate the cause of a problem by “stepping backward” from the
point where you see a problem to its root cause
• Set up your next logic analyzer acquisition by simply pointing
and clicking on a line of source code
• Determine the cause of data corruption by acquiring all activity
relative to a variable
Trigger, Search, View and Analyze at the Packet Level
More designs are incorporating serial buses. With Agilent’s packet
viewer you can trigger, search, view and analyze at the packet level.
The display is customized for the protocol family being decoded by
the packet decode tool. To optimize protocol viewing and analysis
you can simultaneously view summarized and detailed packet information. Packet detail views include tabs for header, payload, and
lane information.
Get Additional Insights Into Your Design with
Multiple Views and Analysis Tools
As the complexity of digital systems increases, you need to analyze
and view data in ways that were previously unavailable in a logic
analyzer. The following analysis tools enable you to rapidly consolidate large amounts of data into displays that provide rapid insight
into your system’s behavior.
• The B4601C Serial-to-parallel analysis package converts a serial
data stream into parallel data words, performs clock recovery,
processes frame and data portions separately, and removes
stuffed bits from the data block
• Use the B4602A Signal Extractor Tool to extract I and Q data
from simple serial protocols or re-multiplex high-speed digital
data that has been de-multiplexed onto additional logic analyzer
channels

Reduce Computer and Storage
Test Time by Combining MultiProtocol Analysis and Traffic
Generation in a Single Platform
Because Computer and Storage system’s
behavior is the result of tight interactions
between multiple busses and protocols,
identifying the root cause of defects or performance issues requires a real-time system
level view on multiple protocol domains. In
order to recreate the right test conditions,
your test platform must also provide a
deterministic traffic generation and device
exercising capabilities.
Based on the modular, scalable, multiuser N2X chassis, the Agilent System
Protocol Tester combines multi-protocol
analysis, traffic generation, performance
and conformance verification to debug,
validate and optimize semiconductors,
software and systems using high speed
protocol standards.
English URL www.agilent.com/find/products
The System Protocol Tester includes
multiple test solutions for various
applications:
• The Protocol Analyzer application helps
you transparently record in real-time the
protocol communication between two or
more devices and easily visualize the
trace information at the packet level with
the right protocol decoding capabilities.
Additional performance measurements
and advanced triggering capabilities help
quickly identify the root cause of your
design problems.
• The Exerciser and Traffic Generator applications can stimulate your design with
sophisticated traffic scenarios, and help
accelerate test phases and improve
product robustness. These applications
also provide sophisticated device emulation capabilities to recreate complex or
large scale test environments.
• The Switch Testers help characterize
switches and networks performance
under various traffic conditions, perform
scalability testing and product robustness through device virtualization and
negative testing
• The Compliance Test Solutions will perform
tests in order to verify and ensure
compliance with specifications defined
by the standard bodies

E2960A/B Protocol Analyzer for PCI Express Gives you
Fast Access to Reliable and Understandable Data
The E2960A/B protocol analyzer for PCI Express captures the traffic
or transactions on a PCI Express link and allows you to analyze it
and troubleshoot problems to find the root cause. The protocol analyzer provides non-intrusive monitoring of traffic between two PCI
Express devices (either a system talking to an add-in card or the
exerciser talking to an add-in card or system). With its capabilities
in analyzing generated PCI Express traffic, the analyzer is perfectly
suited for turn-on and debug of PCI Express systems and designs. It
captures and analyzes packets from the physical up to the transaction layer as well as training sequences and ordered sets.
There are analyzer solutions for all link width (x1 up to x16)
and speed grades (2.5 Gb/S and 5 Gb/S available). Advanced triggering capabilities that reduce the time needed to detect even difficult
to find errors are available on all solutions.
The E2960B features “per lane LEDs” that give an instantaneous feedback on the link, lane and speed status (manual and automatic speed setting), both on the I/O module as well as the GUI. The
“per lane display” shows data even prior to channel bonding completion including 8b, 10b or K/D symbols. 2 “Trigger-down-the-lane”
patterns allow triggering on ordered sets on selected lanes.
An easy-to-use GUI offers graphical trigger setup, search and
filter capabilities to help you intuitively interpret PCI Express transactions. The context sensitive and easy flow technologies allow to
display data easily understandable but also very condensed.

E2960A/B Protocol Exerciser for PCI Express lets you Test
and Validate your System’s Performance under Varied
Conditions
With its fully adjustable parameters, the E2960A/B protocol exerciser lets you emulate any PCI Express design. Furthermore it is
capable to generate and respond to any PCI Express packet or
sequences of packets. It is an intelligent I/O communication tool that
can react as a PCI Express end node or root complex. The E2960A/B
exerciser’s functionality extends far beyond the capabilities of a
simple packet generator. It is tailored to validate corner cases and
emulate stress conditions for components on system boards and
add-in cards. The protocol exerciser is the ideal tool to test and validate x1 up to x16 PCI Express designs.
The E2960A/B exerciser lets you stress all data paths in your
system so you can force it to fail. You can also insert errors and test
the behavior of designs in response to these errors to enable worstcase-scenario testing.
Using the x1 through x 16 LTSSM exerciser (Link Training and
Status State Machine) training sequences and ordered sets can be
generated across all the lane widths, enabling effective testing of the
link negotiation and supporting dynamic lane width changes.
Using the passive backplane, you can verify your device in a
controlled environment that gives you a quite PCI Express bus independent of a system. The passive backplane features 3 independent
busses, all prepared for traffic up to x16 and includes reset, standby
power, SSC etc.
N2X Platform Continuity
The E2960A/B protocol analyzer and exerciser for PCI Express are
based on the modular system tester platform with Agilent’s N2X
technology. The universal and upgradeable platform offers multiprotocol and time correlated test/cross bus analysis support for ASI,
PCI Express and Fibre Channel applications and protects capital
investment. Components from one generation can be reused in the
next generation.
The complete software including the GUI is also the same for
both series of products, so customers can protect their investment
and leverage their existing know-how to start PCIe 2.0 testing immediately.
The APIs are backward compatible so that previously developed scripts can be reused.
Powerful Triggering, Easy Setup
The protocol analyzer’s sophisticated trigger capabilities are based
on a trigger sequencer. It offers an easy-to-use set up and graphical
representation of the trigger sequence. Examples and listed predefined conditions reduce time-consuming trigger setups. You can
define up to 8 states, 8 patterns and 2 counters with various actions
store, increment counter, trigger out and so on.

E2969A Protocol Test Card for PCI Express compliance testing.
3
The E2969A is a protocol test card for PCI Express, which performs
tests in order to verify and ensure compliance with PCI Express
specifications as defined by the PCI SIG. The protocol test card is a
collaborative development between Agilent and Intel® and will coincide with the Intel product development solutions for PCI Express.
In addition the card also guarantees the interoperability of the DUT
with other PCI Express devices. It is developed primarily for use by
R&D engineers who wish to validate the functional compliance of
their PCI Express based designs, including chips, add-in cards or
systems. The card is simply plugged into the DUT and is ready for
use as soon as the software has been installed. The card supports
following operating modes:
• Add-in-card Test Mode
• Known Endpoint Test Mode (KEP)
• Topology/BIOS Simulation Test Mode
The three test modes provide pre-programmed tests, which are
executed by means of a Graphical User Interface (GUI). The modes
can be selected either via the software (in the GUI) or by setting a
dipswitch on the card.
The Graphical User Interface allows the user to select tests and
execute them. There are two main windows available in the GUI. All
tests in the corresponding mode are listed with name and description relative to the PCI Express Specification. In the description
field, tool tips provide a detailed description of each test. Individual
or groups of tests can be selected and are executed using the run
button. After running the tests, the GUI shows the status of each test
by indicating green for passed and red for failed. For more details on
the tests, the report window should be selected.
Add-In Card Test Mode
Graphical User Interface with test selection.
In this mode the PTC is inserted between the system and a PCI
Express add-in card to be tested. The Protocol Test Card now acts as
switch device between the system and the PCI Express add-in card
(the Device Under Test, DUT). The DUT is inserted into the PCI
Express slot on top of the Protocol Test Card. The top connector is
capable of accepting up to x16 PCI Express cards; however, these
will be tested in PCI Express x1 mode. The tests in this mode are
used to check the correct behavior and functional compliance of the
PCI Express add-in card (DUT). The test software communicates
commands to the PTC via PCI Express and performs various tests
on the DUT. In this mode it is necessary to power the PTC using the
external power connector. A standard AT/ATX Power Connector
can be used for this purpose.
The GUI of the PTC monitors the behavior of the add-in card,
its device drivers and OS in response to a range of inserted errors.
Known Endpoint Test Mode
In this mode the Protocol Test Card behaves like a known endpoint
device. This mode is used for testing chipsets. No other card can be
inserted into the Protocol Test Card in this mode. The Protocol Test
Card itself acts as a known endpoint. The tests in this mode monitor
the behavior of the platform.
Topology/BIOS Simulation Test Mode
This test mode is where the Protocol Test Card appears as a complex
PCI Express topology. It aids in verifying the PCI Express compliance of the BIOS, and that it is able to detect and initialize a complex
PCI Express topology correctly.

SAN Tester Software Application (Active Test)
The SAN tester software is an Active Test application that helps you
stimulate your Fibre Channel design with configurable traffic. The
SAN Tester application will also characterize the performance and
scalability of your Fibre Channel design using real-time measurements including Throughput, Latency, Lost Frames and Errors. The
SAN Tester application can be used to test Fibre Channel
Semiconductors, Switches, Directors & Fabrics.
Using the SAN Tester software application, each test port can
be configured as one or multiple Fibre Channel devices sending and
receiving wire speed traffic to other devices. Port to port, partial
mesh and full mesh configurations can be created, testing your
devices with realistic or extreme traffic conditions.
The SAN Tester software application provides extensive
parametric control of wire speed Fibre Channel traffic generation
and real time continuous monitoring of performance, robustness,
reliability of SAN systems. Thanks to the scalability of the
Agilent platform, it can test individual devices to large-scale SAN
infrastructures.
Features of the SAN Tester software application includes:
• Flexible port emulation – test ports can be configured in N_port
or L_port mode
• Configurable device emulation – test ports or emulated devices
can be configured to mimic different HBAs and different
initialization process
• Multi-protocol support – test ports can be configured as Fibre
Channel Protocol (FCP) or FICON devices
• Variable Traffic Modes – varies traffic modes exist to better
simulate real network conditions. Traffic load can also be
modified in real time to identify the knee of the system’s
performance curve
• Real time measurement – each test port acquires continuous
real-time traffic statistics for better insight into how your system
is performing. Statistics reported include throughput, latency,
lost frames, CRC errors and sequence errors
System and Protocol Test
173x Fibre Channel Protocol Test Tools (cont.)
Protocol Analyzer Software Application
The Protocol Analysis software application helps you passively
monitor the communication between 2 or more Fibre Channel
devices. With effective presentation, the protocol analysis application helps you quickly understand what is being communicated and
the exact timing of the communication between the multiple devices
on the network.
Using the Protocol Analysis software, each analyzer is able to
capture relevant information by combining a deep trace and an intuitive dual channel, state based triggering and filtering engine. The
application also contains Agilent unique features such as Easy Flow
visualization, comprehensive decoding, extensive pattern libraries,
drag and drop functionality, helping you quickly find the root cause
of problems.
Features of the Protocol Analysis Application include:
• Dual Channel, Multi-state triggering engine – ensures the
problem event is actually captured
• Easy Flow visualization – graphically depicts the precise time
and flow of information through multiple analyzers
• Context Sensitive Columns – displays only relevant protocol field
to maximize understanding the protocol interaction
• Multi-protocol platform – provides cross correlation to other
protocols in the same platform
SAN Director Tester
The Agilent Technologies 1733L SAN director tester simplifies the
testing of director-class switches in QA and manufacturing environments. Now you can easily generate I/O traffic to test the performance and availability of your director switches while lowering your
overall cost of test.
Existing test methods of using a large number of PC controllers, or a “wall of PCs”, to generate I/O traffic to stress the director switch has a number of limitations, including lack of centralized
control, unable to scale and cost considerations in terms of power
and space consumption.
The 1733L SAN Director Tester is small and compact. With
realistic Fibre channel 4 Gb/s traffic generation and real time measurements on all 128 ports, and by providing a centralized multiport control panel the 1733L SAN director tester simplifies test
setup, execution and analysis, resulting in faster test completion.

The Smartest Way to Accurate Jitter Tolerance Test and
Characterization
The J-BERT N4903A High-Performance Serial BERT provides the
only complete jitter tolerance test solution for characterization of
serial gigabit devices.
It offers complete, integrated and calibrated jitter composition
for stressed eye testing of receivers up to 12.5 Gb/s. Automated and
compliant jitter tolerance testing allows quick and accurate characterization for all popular serial bus standards, such as PCI Express,
SATA, FB-DIMM, Display Port, Fibre Channel, CEI, 10 Gigabit
Ethernet and XFP/XFI.
The J-BERT matches the latest serial bus interfaces perfectly
with its ability to analyze undeterministic traffic with idles from the
DUT with the analyzer’s Bit Recovery Mode. The pattern generator
allows setting up complex pattern sequences to bring a device into
loop back mode. To match LVDS and other low voltage standards, all
clock, data inputs and outputs are differential and can handle small
amplitude swings.
Clockless interfaces can be analyzed with the built-in CDR with
tunable loop bandwidth (option CTR). The J-BERT offers differential subrate clock outputs with any ratio of clock and data signals
without extra equipment. Data and clock outputs support spread
Spectrum Clocking (SSC), commonly used in computer bus
standards.
The J-BERT is an expandable, future-proof BERT platform
where all options can be configured to the current test needs and
upgraded later when those needs change.
It is the ideal choice for R&D and validation teams who characterize and stress chips and transceiver modules with serial I/O ports
up to 12.5 Gb/s.

The N4916A de-emphasis signal converter enables design and test
engineers to accurately characterize gigabit serial ports and channels that operate with de-emphasized signals. This results in more
robust receiver designs, with reliable operation in real printed
circuit board environments.
De-emphasis is a commonly used technique for transmitting
electrical signals at gigabit data rates to compensate for the losses
caused by PC board traces.
Many popular serial bus standards, such as Display Port, PCI
Express®, SATA 3 Gb/s, fully-buffered DIMM, Hypertransport, CEI,
10 Gigabit Ethernet require transmit de-emphasis.
The de-emphasis signal converter can be controlled via the

screen to ensure intuitive use for operators. It makes the instrument
easy to use and easy to learn.
Twice the Measurement Throughput
By using both the electrical and optical (SFP) interfaces concurrently,
you can double your measurement throughput (electrical in/optical
out and vice versa).
Automation Made Easy
The remote programmability of the user interface, using SCPI –
syntax, makes it simple to integrate the N5980A into other
programs.

34401A Digital Multimeter
The 34401A digital multimeter establishes a new price/performance
standard by offering such features as 61 ⁄2 digits of resolution, 1000
readings per second, and 15 ppm basic dc accuracy at a surprisingly
affordable price. The 34401A has been designed for superior performance while providing the flexibility to meet both your present and
future needs.
Great Bench Performance
The clear, logical front panel of the 34401A allows you to easily
select all primary measurement functions. Traditional “bench”
functions, such as continuity and diode test, are included. Math
functions, such as NULL, dB, dBm, limit test, and min/max/avg are
easily selected. A simple menu scheme gives you access to powerful
advanced features, such as the ability to store up to 512 readings in
internal memory. Measurement results are displayed on a bright,
high-visibility readout. A rugged case ensures survival even under
the toughest conditions, and the optional accessory pouch makes it
easy to pack up and go with the 34401A.
Superior Performance in Your System
The 34401A can take up to 1000 readings per second, including
GPIB bus transfer in ASCII format. Both GPIB and RS-232 are
standard, letting you select the interface that best meets your needs.
The 34401A responds to three different command languages. It
accepts SCPI commands (Standard Commands for Programmable
Instruments), which ensures present and future compatibility.
Drivers are also available for both National Instruments Labview
and Agilent’s VEE software.
IntuiLink Software, included with your 34401A, allows you to
transfer your measurement data and images into Microsoft Excel or
Microsoft Word with little or no programming. You can specify the
meter setup and take a single reading or log data to the Excel
spreadsheet in specific time intervals. Programmers can use the
ActiveX components to control the DMM using SCPI commands. To

34420A
34420A Nanovolt/Micro-ohm Meter
The Agilent 34420A sets a price/performance standard in low-level
measurement capability. The noise performance of the 34420A
nanovolt/micro-ohm meter is more than an order of magnitude
better than that previously available from Hewlett-Packard.
Accurate, Repeatable Low-Level Measurements
A shielded copper pin screw-down connector, a 71⁄2-digit A/D converter, 2 ppm basic dc accuracy, and a new measurement algorithm
that gives 100 dB normal mode rejection without front-end filtering
result in measurement capability you can depend on to make
accurate and repeatable low-level measurements. Low noise input
amplifiers and a highly-tuned input protection scheme bring reading
noise down to 8 nVp-p. Longer integration times improve noise
performance even further.
Unprecedented Functionality
Two input channels allow voltage measurements to be made independently, or they can be mathematically combined to make
difference and ratio measurements. Ohms measurements combine
the low-noise input circuits with a highly-stable current source to
provide outstanding low-resistance measurements. Offset compensation is employed to eliminate the effects of stray thermal EMFs
that would otherwise result in measurement error. Low power
ohms and a low-voltage resistance measurement capability allow
repeatable measurements to be made where a low voltage (20 mV) is
required to avoid oxidation punch-through. A wide range of
temperature measurement capabilities are also built in, providing
support for SPRT, thermocouple, RTD, and thermistor temperature
sensors.
Math Functions Enhance Capabilities
Math functions such as NULL, STATS, and SCALE ease the capture
of minimum and maximum readings, provide averages and standard
deviation, scale your measurement results, and ultimately makes it
easier for you to characterize your input signal. The 34420A can also
store up to 1024 readings in internal memory.
Built-in Versatility
You will find that the 34420A will fit equally well into your bench
or your system applications. Designed with the bench user in mind,
operation of the 34420A from the front panel is straightforward and
intuitive. For system applications, the 34420A includes both GPIB and
RS-232 interfaces standard, and uses Standard Commands for
Programmable Instrumentation (SCPI). This ensures both present and
future compatibility. The 34420A also responds to commands for the
Keithley 181 nanovoltmeter.
Agilent IntuiLink: Easy Data Access
The Included Agilent IntuiLink software allows your captured data to
be put to work easily, using PC applications such as Microsoft Excel or
Microsoft Word, to analyze, interpret, display, print, and document the
data you get from the 34420A. To find out more about IntuiLink, visit

U2000
Series
Excellent Performance without Compromise
The Agilent U2000 Series USB power sensors allow you to display
power measurement on a PC or on other Agilent instruments
without the need of a separate power meter. The compact U2000
Series gives you the same functionality and performance as a
conventional power meter and sensor. This is a cost-effective
solution that leverages the latest diode sensor technologies, hence,
you will experience the same level of performance for your power
measurements with a lower cost solution.
Simplified Measurement Setup without the Need of
an External Power Supply and Triggering Module
The U2000 Series is a complete solution that simplifies your
measurement setup and meets all your measurement needs. No
external power supply is required to power up the sensor as it
utilizes the power from the USB port. The low current consumption
(approximately 170 mA) enables a number of USB sensors to be
connected to a PC without the need of an external USB hub to
supply any additional power.
The U2000 Series consists of built-in triggering circuit that
enables measurement synchronization with the external instrument
or event, for instance, to control the timing of capturing a pulse signal. With the plug-and-play capability of the U2000 Series, a quick
connection can be established between the USB power sensor and
the PC for your immediate measurements.
The U2000 Series is bundled with the Power Panel that offers a
standard GUI for basic power measurement. The Power Panel can
display power measurements in both analog and numerical formats
and a trend chart display that monitors up to 10,000 data points.
The Power Panel also comes with mathematical functions for
multiple channels such as delta, sum and ratio in multi-list
measurement.
The software also comes with integrated Help File that guides
you through the operations of each function. The provided save and
record capability of U2000 Series can be disabled using the password
protection. This aims to prevent any unauthorized data storage and
to safeguarding sensitive information and measurements. This makes
the Agilent U2000 Series suitable to be used in a secure environment.
Easy Monitoring and Troubleshooting with
N1918A-100 Power Analyzer
The N1918A Power Analysis Manager offers an orderable option —
N1918A-100 Power Analyzer that further extends the capabilities of
the U2000 Series.
External Calibration-free Measurements
The U2000 Series provides “internal zeroing” that eliminates the
needs of disconnecting or powering off the device under test. It
integrates a switching circuit into each USB sensor, hence, users can
perform the zeroing while the sensor is still connecting to a device
under test.
The compact design of U2000 Series also eliminates the sensor
calibration that requires an external reference source, and the path
loss calibration caused by the different combination of power meter
and sensor. Users can rely on the factory calibration to ensure measurement accuracy.
The internal zeroing and calibration-free designs remove the
steps to connect and disconnect the power sensor from the calibration source. Hence, it can reduce the test times, measurement uncertainty, and wear and tear of the connector. The USB power sensors
can also be embedded into the test fixtures without switching the
reference signals.
Key Features of the Advanced Power Analyzer
• Comes with enhanced visualization with larger and more flexible display
formats that includes Digital Softpanel, Gauge, Trace Graph, Strip Chart
displays and multiple tabs
• Provides complete 15-point pulse characterization for peak power analysis
• Supports overlay measurements and waveform math computations

Optimum Measurement Accuracy and Repeatability
To minimize the sensor and source mismatch, one of the main contributors to the overall measurement uncertainty, the E9320 sensors
have a low SWR specification (1.15 for signals <+10 dBm, 50 MHz
to 2 GHz). Comprehensive error correction is also provided as the
calibration factors, linearity, and temperature compensation data
are all stored within the E9320 sensor’s EEPROM.

High Performance Sensors
The E932x sensors have two frequency ranges, from 50 MHz to
6 GHz to cover most wireless communications applications, and a
higher frequency range 50 MHz to 18 GHz. Each frequency range has
a choice of 3 different video bandwidth sensors:
• 300 kHz for TDMA signals, for example GSM
• 1.5 MHz for cdmaOne
• 5 MHz for W-CDMA and cdma2000
Using just one sensor, user’s can measure W-CDMA, cdmaOne
and TDMA as each sensor provides a high, medium and low video
bandwidth setting, selectable by the meter. So user’s can select the
modulation bandwidth required for their application, while maintaining the maximum dynamic range.
Fast Measurement Speed
The E9320 power sensors provide fast measurement speed, over the
GPIB, up to 1,000 corrected readings per second, with the E4416A
power meter.

provides up to 5.5 hours of continuous operation, brings Agilent’s
accuracy to field applications. Front and rear panel bumpers protect
the E4418B from everyday knocks. The meter weighs only 4 kg
(9 lbs), and a bail handle makes it easy to carry.
Because the E4418B power meter is designed to be code-compatible with the previous-generation 436A and 437B power meters,
a user’s investment in automatic-test procedures, software generation and verification is protected.

Best SWR in the Industry
Mismatch uncertainty is usually the largest single source of error in
power measurements. The 8480 power sensor family gives you extremely low SWR even at mm-wave frequencies. For example, the W8486A
power sensor has a specified SWR of less than 1.08:1 over its entire
75 to 110 GHz frequency range. This low SWR translates into minimum mismatch uncertainty and optimum measurement accuracy.
Accurate Calibration and Traceability
Each power sensor in the 8480 family is individually calibrated and
traceable to the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology
(NIST). The uncertainty in this calibration factor is your link to
NIST. The cal factor measurement system used by Standards Lab
provides you with minimum cal factor uncertainty.
Millimeter-Wave Sensor Calibration
A 50 MHz calibration port is included in Agilent waveguide power
sensors for calibration with the power meter. This calibration provides traceability to NIST at millimeter-wave frequencies, and it eliminates the uncertainties due to temperature changes and the variance
in making measurements with different meter/sensor combinations.

The N1921A (50 MHz to 18 GHz) and the N1922A (50 MHz to 40 GHz)
only operate with the P-Series power meters. These sensors have
their sensor cable permanently connected (hard-wired) to ensure
the best wide bandwidth flatness specifications.
External Calibration-free Measurements
The P-Series power sensors are the first to provide ‘internal zero and
calibration’ which eliminates the need for sensor calibration using
an external reference source. Agilent’s patent-pending technology
integrates a dc reference source and switching circuits into each
power sensor, so that you can zero and calibrate the sensor while
it is connected to a device under test. This feature removes the
need for connection and disconnection from the calibration source,
thereby reducing test times, measurement uncertainty, and wear
and tear on connectors. It is especially useful in manufacturing and
automated test environments where every second counts. Sensors
can be embedded within test fixtures without the need to switch in
reference signals.
Simplified Correction Factors
To ensure the accuracy of power measurements, a power meter typically overlays many different sensor correction factors, including
linearity, frequency and temperature. At higher bandwidths, this
technique can be cumbersome and less than accurate. To simplify
the process and improve measurement speed while preserving
measurement accuracy, Agilent uses a 4-dimensional modeling
technique that measures input power, frequency, temperature, and
output voltage across the power sensor’s specified measurement
ranges. Data from this 4-D model is generated during the initial
factory calibration of the sensor and stored in EEPROM, and
advanced algorithms are used to quickly and accurately evaluate the
sensors against this model, without requiring the power meter to
interpolate the calibration factors and linearity curves. If you run
tests in which the frequency changes often – testing multi-carrier
amplifiers on different bands, for example – you’ll notice a marked
improvement in measurement speed.

and time-interval signal characteristics.
The breadth of the Agilent offering allows
the best product to be selected for each
application. An ideal functional and
performance fit delivers the greatest value:
the best and most cost-effective solution.
Agilent counter/timers offer:
• High-measurement accuracy
• Fast system throughput/GPIB capability
• Low cost of ownership
• Ease of use
• Triggering simplicity
Counter Products
RF Counter
The 53181A leads off Agilent’s line of
frequency counters. The 53181A RF
counter employs continuous measurement
technology to provide superior performance at a very low price. Frequency and
period measurements are provided over the
range of 0.1 Hz to 225 MHz with exceptional
resolution of 10 digits in one second. An
optional second channel increases the
frequency range to 1.5 GHz, 3 GHz, 5 GHz,
or 12.4 GHz, making it easy to cover your
exact RF measurement needs. Other
features of the 53181A include GPIB, automatic limit testing, analog display mode,
single-button recall, extensive in-box
statistical and math analysis, and more.
The 53181A RF counter is designed
for systems and bench applications where
high-precision frequency measurements
are required in an easy-to-use, small and
rugged package.
53181A: The low-cost RF counter for systems
and bench use
Overview
The 53131A frequency counter offers high performance for system or bench.
Universal Frequency and Time
Interval Counters
The Agilent universal counter/timers
incorporate frequency measurements, just
like the 53181A, and additional capabilities
for time-interval measurements. Specifically,
these counters measure precise timing
between two trigger events. These highperformance universal products also
provide complete, automatic characterization of rise time, pulse width, and other
signal parameters. Options are available
(frequency extensions, high-precision time
bases) to customize the products.
The current Agilent frequency counter
offering includes two high-performance
universal counters: the 53131A and 53132A.
The 53131A is designed for manufacturing test, troubleshooting, and service.
This counter allows you to easily make
highly reliable frequency and timing
measurements. Featured are extensive
in-box analysis, automatic limit testing,
analog display mode, single button recall,
and more. The 53131A’s half-rack size and
light weight make it well suited for both
benchtop and rackmounting.
The 53132A is designed for highperformance ATE systems. It combines the
functionality of the 53131A with improved
frequency and time interval resolution.
53131A: High-performance system and bench
counter (10 digits/sec. and 500 ps LSD).

dc to 46 GHz. Many enhancements — power
measurement, battery operation, systems
interface (GPIB), and high-accuracy time
bases — are available standard or as
options.
53150A/53151A/53152A: Portable CW microwave counter with power measurement for
telecommunications service
53147A/53148A/53149A: Portable CW

power meter for improved power accuracy
High-Precision Oscillators
The accuracy of frequency and timeinterval measurements is vitally dependent
on the time base or reference element
selected. Agilent has pioneered the field of
high-precision crystal oscillators. The
current counter product line benefits from
Agilent’s leadership in quality and precision oscillator technology. Three oscillator
varieties are standard or optional with
Agilent counters and counter/timers:
RTXO: Room-temperature crystal oscillators
are designed for minimum frequency
change over a change in temperature.
TCXO: Temperature-compensated oscillators use external components to offset
temperature effects. TCXO time bases have
temperature characteristics which are
typically five times better than an RTXO,
or <5 x 10 –7 for a 0° to 50°C change.
Oven Time Base: This alternative places the
crystal and temperature-sensitive elements
within a temperature-controlled environment. A heating element maintains a
consistent temperature. The best stability
is achieved when the operating point is
15° to 20°C above the highest temperature
to which the unit will be exposed. After
warm-up, the frequency remains very stable,
typically <7 x 10 –9 over a 0° to 50°C
variation.

53181A RF Counter
A Full Family of High-Performance RF
and Universal Counters
Within Budget, Without Compromise
The 53131A/132A/181A high-performance counters offer exceptional price and performance in a rugged, lightweight package with
a unique combination of ease of use, complete measurement set,
extensive analysis capability, reliability, and high measurement and
data transfer speed.
These instruments use real-time digital signal processing technology to analyze data while simultaneously taking new readings,
speeding measurement throughput. The technology allows the counters to gather more data for each measurement so you get
the high-resolution measurements in a fraction of the time it takes a
conventional counter.
Powerful Analysis Capability
The 53131A/132A/181A counters offer built-in statistics and math
functions so you can scale measurements and simultaneously
measure and track average, min./max. and standard deviation. Automated limit testing lets you set upper and lower limits for any
measurement. When a measurement falls outside those limits, the
counters log the out-of-limit conditions, notify the operator and generate an output signal to trigger external devices or stop the test. An
analog display mode carries limit testing one step further, letting you
see at a glance whether a measurement falls within pass/fail limits.
Analog display mode uses an asterisk to represent the current measurement
relative to user-defined upper and lower limits. The colon on the left represents the
lower limit and the colon on the right represents the upper limit.
High-Speed Automated Test Capability
For computer-controlled systems applications, each counter
includes a standard GPIB interface with a data transfer rate of up
to 200 fully-formatted measurements per second. The counters use
the Standard Commands for Programmable Instruments (SCPI)
protocol, letting you leverage your programming investment across
your measurement system. The standard RS-232 talk-only interface
provides printer support or data transfer to a computer through a
terminal-emulation program.

53150A, 53151A, 53152A Microwave Counters
Functionality Without Clutter
The Agilent 53150 series represent a total re-thinking of microwave
counters: innovative designs that offer no-compromise performance
and quality while attaining true portability. The 53150A, 53151A, and
53152A measure both frequency and power over the frequency ranges
of 20 GHz, 26.5 GHz, and 46 GHz, respectively, and feature a single,
extremely wideband microwave input (50 MHz up to 46 GHz).
The 53150 series offers a clean, uncluttered front panel with with a
minimum of push buttons. Despite their simple appearance, these
counters retain all the powerful functions one expects in precision
instrumentation, with such useful functions as: measurement averaging, arbitrary as well as nulling offsets for both frequency and power,
display of power in either dBm or Watts and full control of resolution,
sampling rate, and GPIB address plus extensive self-diagnostics.
No Compromise Performance
Field Tough but Ready for Benchtop or ATE Applications
Utilizing a unique single board design with low phase noise PLL circuitry, the 53150 series offers exceptional sensitivity, excellent power
measurement accuracy and repeatability as well as fast acquisition
times and full programmability. Performance equals or surpasses the
industry standard Agilent 5350 series in virtually every aspect, and
in a package that is less than half the weight and size.
The 53150 series is as comfortable in the field as in the laboratory.
The rugged case with an integrated tilting handle can tolerate the
vibration and shock expected in field use. For easy transportation, a
soft carrying case is also available. The “see anywhere” backlit
LCD display ensures visibility in all environments, from dark to full
sunlight. And in situations where AC is unavailable, the internal,
replaceable camcorder batteries provide over 2.5 hours of continuous
operation. Alternatively, the unit can be powered from an external
11-18 VDC source.
For benchtop and ATE applications, the 53150 series delivers
full functionality and high measurement speed along with fully programmable RS-232 interface and high speed GPIB (SCPI compliant)
as standard. In addition, these counters are compatible with
standard Agilent rackmount hardware.
Frequency and Power Measurements with
a Single Connection
The heart of the 53150 series is an advanced sampler design that
integrates a separate zero bias Schottky diode for the accurate measurement of input power. This allows the convenient measurement
of both frequency and power with a single connection. The unique
cable-loss-compensation feature (power correction) yields accuracies and repeatabilities that rival power meters. Best of all, since the
frequency of the test signal is measured simultaneously, the diode’s
frequency response is automatically adjusted for. And like the latest
in diode sensors, deviation from square law is also compensated for.

General Specifications
4287A with the 16196A
4287A RF LCR Meter
The Agilent 4287A RF LCR meter offers accurate, reliable and fast
measurements from 1 MHz to 3 GHz to improve quality and throughput of electronic component testing in production lines. The 4287A
employs the direct-current voltage-measurement technique, as
opposed to the reflection-measurement technique, which yields
accurate measurements over a wide impedance range.
High Throughput and Reliable Measurement
The 4287A is suitable for testing electronic components in the
RF range. The 4287A’s measurement speed is remarkably fast. In
addition, the superior measurement repeatability at low test currents such as 100 µ A provides a fast throughput since less averaging
is required.
Simplified System Integration
The test head cable (1 m or 2 m by using an extension cable) can be
easily connected closely to the tip of the device-under-test (of the
component handler) without any increase in error. The built-in comparator function, a high-speed GPIB interface, and an handler interface, are available for simple integration with the component handler
and PC. The enhanced comparator function makes sophisticated
binning possible for multi-frequency or array chip testing.
Ease of Use
The 8.4-inch color display provides a clear view of measurement
settings and results. The newly developed user interface makes
operability easy and error-free. The built-in statistical analysis functions provide a process for monitoring test quality and efficiency.
The LAN interface helps centralize production control and monitor.
Also, a number of 7 mm SMD test fixtures can be used with the
4287A’s furnished fixture stand and 3.5 mm-to-7 mm adapter,
eliminating the need to build custom fixtures.

4263B LCR Meter
3
The 4263B LCR meter is Agilent Technologies’ most cost-effective
low-end LCR meter, designed for both component evaluation on the
production line and fundamental impedance testing for bench-top
applications. The 4263B has five test frequencies that allow you to
simulate testing under the correct conditions: 100 Hz, 120 Hz, 1 kHz,
10 kHz, and 100 kHz. An optional 20 kHz test frequency can be
added to those five frequencies (4263B-002).
High-Speed Measurements
The 4263B can boost throughput with a measurement speed of 25 ms
at any test frequency. This ability improves the throughput of electrolytic capacitor and transformer testing. The 4263B can check the
contact condition between the test terminals and the device-undertest (DUT). This function ensures the reliability of PASS/FAIL testing
with automatic handlers in production. The quick recovery system of
the 4263B improves throughput. Normal operation is resumed the
instant a faulty DUT is removed from the handler, so the handler can
always be operated at its full speed.
Electrolytic Capacitor Measurements
The 4263B’s accuracy and wide measurement range are the right
tools to make precise measurements of electrolytic capacitors.
Charged capacitors can discharge through the front end and destroy
an instrument. The 4263B’s front end is designed for protection and
maintains test integrity.
Transformer Parameter Measurements
With the 4263B’s ability to make turns ratio (N), mutual inductance
(M), and dc resistance (DCR) measurements, data calculations and
changing test setups are no longer time-consuming tasks (4263B-001).
The flexible signal level setting and the voltage-and-current monitor
function facilitate the use of the 4263B for level dependent DUTs, such
as core inductors.

4338B Milliohmmeter
The 4338B milliohmmeter is a precise, reliable, high-speed test tool
for measurements of low resistance.
Precise, Low-Resistance Measurement
3
Contact failure of electromechanical components in a low-current
circuit is a key issue for component reliability. The 4338B offers selectable low ac test signals (1 µ A to 10 mA). Users can now characterize
low resistances of electromechanical components under low-current
conditions. A high resolution of 10 µΩ allows you to determine the
slightest differences in contact resistance testing of relays, switches,
connectors, PC board traces and cables. The 1 kHz test signal eliminates potential errors introduced by thermoelectric effects on the
device-under-test (DUT) contacts. The 1 kHz ac test signal is the best
solution to evaluate the internal resistance of batteries, because it
avoids dc energy consumption.

Component Test Instruments
Component Measurement
Today’s electronic components are designed
for higher performance, while being reduced
in size, power consumption, and cost.
Efficient and accurate component
characterization, design evaluation, and
manufacturing test are critical to the success
of component users and suppliers. Agilent
Technologies offers the industry’s broadest
line of component test instruments for passive as well as active components. The products in this section are designed to measure
fundamental impedance-related parameters
of electronic components and materials.
Impedance Measuring Instruments
Impedance measuring instruments can be
divided into two general categories: LCR
meters and impedance analyzers. LCR
meters primarily measure inductance,
capacitance, and resistance of the test device
at spot frequencies. Impedance analyzers, in
addition to all the functions of the LCR
meter, measure impedance, phase, and
sometimes transmission parameters. These
analyzers have extended frequency range, a
synthesized source, swept frequency
capability, and excellent frequency resolution.
Combination network/spectrum/impedance
analyzers offer the benefits of impedance
analysis as well as vector-network and
spectrum analysis. See the Selection Guides
that follow for general instrument
capabilities. For higher frequencies (above
3 GHz) in a 50 Ω environment, a dedicated
vector-network analyzer is the best solution
for impedance measurements. See Network
Analyzers.
Selecting a test fixture is as important
as selecting the right instrument. Agilent
offers a wide range of accessories for axial,
radial, and SMD chip devices. See page 261.
Materials Measurements
Materials have two properties that
determine how they interact with electromagnetic fields:
• Permittivity () or dielectric constant for
electric fields
Overview
259
• Permeability (µ) for magnetic fields
Permittivity (*= ’ -j ”) and
permeability (µ*=µ’- j µ”) are complex values.
The real part (’ or µ’) is a measure of how
much energy is stored in a material. The
imaginary part (”or µ”) is a measure of how
much energy is lost in a material. These
properties are not constant and may change
with frequency or temperature, for example.
Accurate measurements of these material
properties during characterization or
inspection help to achieve the best performance for a given application while shortening design cycles and minimizing scrap.
A materials measurement system
consists of an instrument, a fixture to hold
the material, and software or firmware to
calculate complex permittivity or
permeability values and display the results.
For material testing applications, Agilent
currently offers three types of solutions: LCR
meter-based, impedance analyzer-based, and
network analyzer-based systems.
Agilent offers fixture accessories based
on the open-ended coaxial probe, the transmission line measurement, the parallel plate
capacitance, and the inductor impedance
technique. These choices allow you to best
match the fixture, frequency range, and
measurement technique with your material’s
physical and electrical test requirements.
The chart of material test applications and
solutions is shown in the next page 260.
Overview
Signal Source Device Test
Agilent provides an excellent performance
analyzer for evaluating nearly all types of
RF and microwave signal source device
such as crystal oscillators, VCOs, DROs,
RFICs, and PLL synthesizers. The Agilent
Signal Source Analyzer is the single
instrument solution enabling phase
noise, frequency, power, DC current,
and frequency/phase/power over time
measurements. See page 268 for the
Agilent Signal Source Analyzer.

Also, the temperature drift compensation function enables you
to perform open/short compensation at pre-defined temperature
points so that temperature drift error can be drastically reduced.
Accurate Impedance Measurement with Probe Station
When connecting the E4991A to a probe station, accuracy degradation caused by port extension and improper calibration, is a significant concern. E4991A-010, Probe Station Connection Kit, provides
all necessary parts in one option and solves this problem. This
option includes extension cables, a connecting plate, and detailed
installation procedures. Cascade Microtech is an Agilent channel
partner and they provide RF probe stations. By combining E4991A010 with a Cascade Microtech RF probe station, you can create an
accurate on-wafer characterization system.

signal level ranges enable device evaluation under actual operating
conditions. The DC bias, AC signal level swept measurement, and
the monitor of test signal functions are available to the E4991A.
Internal VBA programming function is also useful for R&D in
order to analyze component or material by using own analysis
method. Furthermore, the built-in Equivalent Circuit Analysis
Function automatically calculates the circuit constant values of
five circuit models. These functions will drastically improve engineering productivity.

4294A
4294A Precision Impedance Analyzer
The Agilent 4294A precision impedance analyzer is an integrated
solution for efficient impedance measurement and analysis of components and circuits. The 4294A covers a broader test-frequency
range (40 Hz to 110 MHz) with Basic impedance accuracy: ±0.08%.
Excellent High Q/Low D accuracy enables analysis of low-loss components. The wide signal-level ranges enable device evaluation under
actual operating conditions. The test signal level range is 5 mV to
1 Vrms or 200 µ A to 20 mArms, and the DC bias range is 0 V to ±40 V
or 0 mA to ±100 mA. Advanced calibration and error compensation
functions eliminate measurement error factors when performing
measurements on in-fixture devices. The 4294A is a powerful tool
for design, qualification and quality control, and production testing
of electronic components. Circuit designers and developers can also
benefit from the performance/functionality offered.
Wide-Range Accurate Measurement
The 4294A enables impedance measurement using the auto-balancing
bridge technique over the frequency range 40 Hz to 110 MHz. The basic
impedance accuracy is ±0.08%, and the typical Q accuracy is ±3% @
Q = 100, ≤10 MHz. This advantage permits accurate evaluations of
impedance characteristics for a wide variety of electronic devices as well
as electronic and non-electronic material within a wide frequency range.
Versatile Analysis
The 4294A graphically displays impedance measurement results.
This permits easy analysis of the resonant frequency and impedance
values of electronic components using the marker functions. The
marker functions offer a simple method to pinpoint the resonant
frequency of components, as well, these functions assist users in
many other observations. The combination of the accumulate mode
(to superimpose traces) and the list sweep functions permits observation of the change in a DUT’s characteristics due to a change in the
measurement condition. Versatile and high-speed automatic testing
is possible using the list sweep function in conjunction with the limit
line function. The list-sweep function provides the ability to enhance
test throughput by segmenting the sweep to include only necessary
measurement frequencies, while the limit-line function (for Go/
No-Go Testing) provides the ability to apply test limits within each
segment. These functions greatly support the quality and performance
required evaluating modern and improved electronic components,
equipment and materials.

Equivalent Circuit Analysis
The equivalent-circuit analysis function provides advanced modeling (three and four element models) based on circuit constant values
of five available circuit models. This function simulates the frequency characteristics of components by using derived circuit values or
user-specified values. Comparison of design values to measurement
values can assist with efficient component design.
Programming
Full programmability is provided using built-in Instrument (IBASIC).
Desired measurements and computations, including graphics
analysis, can be programmed simply by storing front-panel keystroke operations. The one-key execution function allows easy selection and execution of customized IBASIC programs. Several forms
of storage are built-in (10 Mbyte no-volatile memory, RAM disk or
Floppy Disk).
Good PC Connectivity
Features fit to the latest PC environment include LAN (Local Area
Network) capability, VGA monitor output, and the TIFF file format.
LAN capability permits simplified networking ability when collecting,
sharing and analyzing data. VGA monitor output improves productivity and reduces eyestrain. TIFF file format allows easy transfer of
graphics to a PC.
Abundance of Accessories
Various Four-terminal-pair test fixtures can be used with the
4294A. The 42941A impedance probe kit (1.5 m), which covers
40 Hz to 110 MHz, enables in-circuit impedance measurement of
electronic circuits or components. Grounded devices can also be
measured. The 42942A terminal adapter, which covers 40 Hz to
110 MHz, converts the 4-terminal-pair port configuration to a
7 mm test port. This adapter permits the use of familiar 7 mm test
fixtures. Again, grounded measurement is available.

View Spectra in the Order Domain (35670A-1D0)
View spectra as a function of orders or track up to five orders on
four channels simultaneously with computed order tracking
(35670A-1D0). Orders as high as 200 can be tracked. An order map
can be displayed as a function of RPM or time, using the waterfall
function. Waterfall markers let you view the track of any order.
Computed order tracking is ideal for troubleshooting rotating
machinery. Run-up or run-down measurements can be displayed in
bode or polar formats. Oscilloscope-quality orbit diagrams are
another benefit. Because the data is resampled with changes in
RPM, a single-loop orbit display is maintained as the shaft RPM
is varied. With four channels (35670A-AY6), two orbits can be
measured simultaneously-at both ends of a shaft, for instance. An
RPM measurement readout, available in any instrument mode, aids
in the interpretation of measurement data from rotating machinery.
Computed order tracking provides alias-protected measurements without expensive and cumbersome external ratio synthesizers and tracking filters. This new technique uses a digital tracking
algorithm that follows rapid changes in shaft RPM without time delay
and eliminates the phase noise normally associated with ratio synthesizer techniques. Accuracy is enhanced over traditional methods.

35670A Dynamic Signal Analyzer
The 35670A lets you make laboratory-quality measurements in the
field, on an automobile test track, flying above a city, or in the narrow confines of a submarine. Small enough to fit under an airplane
seat, the 35670A is a two-, or four-channel (35670A-AY6), FFT-based
spectrum/network analyzer. The standard instrument provides
spectrum, network, time-domain, and amplitude-domain measurements from virtually dc to slightly over 100 kHz. Your ability to solve
problems in the field is enhanced with the optional four-channel
35670A — measure noise at multiple locations inside vehicles, make
triaxial vibration measurements, or gather data from several
locations along a noise transmission path.
With the 35670A, you carry all your measurement and analysis
tools in one package. Octave analysis (35670A-1D1) adds real-time
measurements of l/1, 1/3, or 1/12 octave spectra at frequencies up to
40 kHz. Computed order tracking (35670A-1D0) allows you to view
spectra as a function of orders, or to view the amplitude of multiple
orders as a function of RPM. Standard 16 MB of memory
provides deep transient time capture or extra space for 2 MB of
non-volatile memory. An arbitrary source (35670A-1D4) lets you
test devices with real-life test signals. With Instrument BASIC
(35670A-lC2), you can automate measurements or customize your
instrument interface. Everything you need to troubleshoot vibration
and noise problems in the field is in one instrument. (You can
retrofit all options — buy only the functionality you need today and
add more as your needs change.)
A deep transient time capture memory can record up to four
channels of data plus a tachometer signal for playback in the narrowband FFT, octave, order, correlation, or histogram instrument modes.
Pre- and post-trigger delay functions let you capture the leading edge
of one-time events or eliminate transmission delay in signals.
Real-Time Octave Analysis to 40 kHz (ANSI S1.11-1986)
Octave analysis (35670A-1D1) adds a real-time octave analyzer to
your 35670A for analysis in 1/1-, 1/3-, or 1/12-octave bands. Four
LEMO connectors with power for microphones are provided by the
microphone adapter and power supply (35670A-UK4). The 1/1- and
1/3-octave band filters in the 35670A comply fully with ANSI
S1.11-1986 (Order 3 Type 1-D), DIN 45651, and IEC 225-1966. An
overall total power band and an A-weighted overall power band
can be activated as needed. All three octave band modes and the
overall power band can be A-weighted with an analog filter in full
compliance with IEC 651-1979 Type 0. The overall power band can
be redefined as a broadband impulse detector that complies with
IEC 651-1979 Type 0. A fan-off mode eliminates instrument noise
from measurements. A pink noise source allows you to evaluate
electroacoustic devices.

The swept-sine instrument mode expands the network analysis range
of the 35670A to 130 dB. Higher noise rejection and accuracy are
obtained by auto-ranging the instrument during the sweep. Automatic
sweep resolution reduces measurement time without sacrificing accuracy. Alternatively, sweep resolution can be set by the user.
Advanced Modeling and Analysis Cut Design Time
Prototype revisions are reduced by modeling design modifications
using curve fit and synthesis functions (35670A-1D3). In a typical
application, a model of the test device is created by curve fitting a frequency response measurement. Up to 20 poles and 20 zeros are used to
describe the device; results can be output in pole/zero, pole/residue, or
polynomial formats. The designer then transfers the circuit model to
the synthesis function. Using synthesis, the model is modified by
adding or deleting poles and zeros. The frequency response function of
the modified model is then synthesized to test the design modification.
Automation Improves Productivity
Instrument BASIC (35670A-1C2) replaces the external computer in
small test systems. Like the computer, it can be used to automate measurements, create a custom user interface, synthesize new information from raw data, or control other instruments and peripherals. An
optional external keyboard plugs into the rear panel. The 35670A provides direct control of external disks, plotters, and printers via GPIB
RS-232, or parallel interfaces, and is fully programmable via the GPIB.
