Notes:
Base model means that the functionality listed is the primary function of that instrument. For example, on the N991xA or N995xA combo analyzers,
cable and antenna analysis is the standard function included with every N991xA or N995xA.
1. Option 305 is not available on the N993xA or N996xA. However, a subset of cable and antenna analyzer measurements, return loss and VSWR, is available
as Option 320.
2. Option 320 is not applicable to N991xA, N995xA, or N992xA. The reflection measurements of return loss and VSWR are included with every N991xA,
N995xA, and N992xA. So there is no need for an Option 320 on these analyzers.
3. On the N991xA or N995xA analyzers, order Options 233 and 210 to obtain a tracking generator with the spectrum analyzer. There is no Option 220 on the
N991xA or N995xA analyzers. To obtain tracking generator capability, you need Options 233 and 210. Option 233 provides the spectrum analyzer capability
and Option 210 the “tracking” capability.

FieldFox Combo Analyzer FAQs (continued)
Question
10. What are the requirements for
Option 209?
Answer
Extended Range Transmission Analysis (ERTA) or Option 209 is a scalar measurement system based on the use
of two FieldFoxes. One FieldFox acts as the source and reference receiver, while the second FieldFox acts as the
measurement receiver.
Required hardware
A. Two FieldFoxes. FieldFoxes can be any of these models:
–– FieldFox microwave combination analyzers: N9913A, N9914A, N9915A, N9916A, N9917A, N9918A, N9950A,
N9951A, N9952A
–– FieldFox microwave spectrum analyzers: N9935A, N9936A, N9937A, N9938A, N9960A, N9961A, N9962A
–– ERTA cannot use N9912A, N9923A, N9925A, N9926A, N9927A or N9928A
The two FieldFoxes used in ERTA do not have to be the same model.
ERTA requires the following options on Combo FieldFoxes.
(N9913A, N9913A, N9914A, N9915A, N9916A, N9917A, N9918A, N9950A, N9951A, N9952A)
–– Option 210, VNA transmission/reflection
–– Option 233, spectrum analyzer
ERTA requires the following options on SA FieldFoxes.
(N9935A, N9936A, N9937A, N9938A, N9960A, N9961A, N9962A)
–– Option 220, tracking generator
Both FieldFoxes (the one used as the source, and the other used as the receiver) must have the options listed
above. The ERTA option (209) cannot be installed unless 210 and 233 are present on a combo analyzer, or 220 is
present on an SA analyzer.
With either the Combo or SA FieldFoxes, the following options are highly recommended:
–– Option 235, preamplifier – this option increases the measurement dynamic range by increasing the received
signal power.
–– Option 307, GPS receiver – this option increases the dynamic range by increasing the frequency accuracy
and permitting the use of a narrower RBW.
B. Power splitter, two-resistor model, Keysight 11667A, 11667B, or 11667C. Other power splitters can be used but the
specifications listed are based on the match and tracking performance of 11667A, 11667B, or 11667C. Three-resister power splitters are not recommended.
C. N9910X-712, Trigger/Reference-in cable, SMA (m) to BNC(f), 1 m, quantity two
D. N9910X-713, Trigger/Reference-out cable, SMB (m) to BNC (m), 1 m, quantity two
E. LAN connection – For ERTA, the two FieldFoxes communicate via a LAN connection. For a direct connection, a
cross-over LAN cable is required. Alternately, both analyzers can be on a local area network.
