Base model

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.

FAQs – Applicable To All FieldFox Microwave Analyzers

Question

1. What is the difference between USB power sensor (Option 302) and built-in power meter (Option 310)?

Description

External hardware

Option 302

USB power sensor

Option 302 allows users to connect a USB power sensor to FieldFox’s USB port and make broadband power measurements.

USB power sensor required

Option 310

Built-in power meter (or channel power meter)

Option 310 is a channelized power measurement capability built into FieldFox analyzers. Maximum bandwidth is 100 MHz.

The power sensor can easily be moved to the measurement point, with a USB cable connecting the detector to

FieldFox.

Yes, on/off, and nominal power level control

Tuned receiver, so measures frequencies within defined channel bandwidth

Frequency range of the analyzer

Set CW frequency, Set channel width/span

Depends on channel width and attenuator setting.

No warm-up time required

InstAlign accuracy: ± 0.5 dB typical for a CW signal. Since the measurement is within a certain frequency channel or bandwidth, to make an accurate measurement, the user needs to know the exact center frequency and the signal’s bandwidth and set those accurately.

Yes, via SCPI

The measurement point needs to be connected to Field-

Fox’s RF input port. If a RF jumper cable is used, the user needs to account for the loss of the cable with an offset value (can be entered into the analyzer).

No access to FieldFox's source from the built-in power meter mode

FAQs – Applicable To All FieldFox Microwave Analyzers (continued)

Question

3. What do I need to get GPS information?

4. What is the connector for Option

309, DC output?

5. What are the connectors for the

Reference/Trigger In and Reference/Trigger Out?

Answer

(1) The recommended GPS solution is to order:

– Option 307 - built-in GPS receiver

– A GPS antenna such as N9910X-825

– Other GPS antennas can also be used

– The GPS connector on the instrument is SMA (f)

(2) Alternatively, you can purchase a USB-based GPS receiver. You do not need to purchase any FieldFox options for the USB-based GPS to work. However, the USB-based GPS only provides time and location data, and time synchronization capability. It cannot be used to increase the frequency accuracy of the instrument.

The DC output has a SMB (m) connector. Recommend ordering N9910X Option 713 bias-tee power cable SMB (f) to BNC (m).

The connector for the Ref/Trig In is SMA (f). Recommend ordering N9910X Option 712 Trig/Ref in SMA (m) to BNC

(f) cable.

The connector for the Ref/Trig Out is SMB (m). Recommend ordering N9910X Option 713 bias-tee power cable

SMB (f) to BNC (m).

6. What is Option 030 Remote control capability?

7. What USB sensor is required for

Option 330?

8. What measurement capabilities are included with Option 330?

(1) Option 030 provides a license for FieldFox to allow remote control via an iOS device.

(2) Not supplied by user, but necessary for operation of Option 030 are:

– iOS device: iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch with iOS 6.1 or higher with free FieldFox app

– A WiFi or 3G/4G network connection between FieldFox and iOS device

Option 330 or pulse measurements requires a Keysight USB peak power sensor. Visit www.keysight.com/find/usbsensorsforfieldfox for a list of supported peak power sensors. Average power sensors cannot be used with Option 330, only peak power sensors. The peak power sensor needs to be purchased separately.

Average power, peak power, and peak to average ratio

Analog gauge display and digital display, dBm and watts

Relative/absolute measurements, dB or %, minimum and maximum limits

Trace graph for pulse profiling with gating

Rise time, fall time, pulse width, pulse period, pulse repetition frequency

9. What is included with Option 208? Option 302, USB power sensor measurements, includes CW power measurements (one frequency at a time). With

Option 208 added, you can make swept-frequency power measurements. You can plot source power, gain, and receive power versus frequency. Additionally, the source frequency can be offset from the receiver frequency. The power sensor needs to be purchased separately.
