E5504B E17 System Modification Note Contents-1
General Description
General Description
The E5500 phase noise measurement solution series contains four standard
hardware configurations in four frequency ranges.
A-Series Systems
Model number
Frequency range
E5501A/B
50 kHz to 1.6 GHz
E5502A/B
50 kHz to 6 GHz
E5503A/B
50 kHz to 18 GHz
E5504A/B
50 kHz to 26.5 GHz
The standard A-series configurations are automatic test equipment (ATE)
subsystems consisting of software, a VXI mainframe, an MMS mainframe,
and plug-in instruments. Computers and other ancillary instruments are not
included with the A-series systems unless added by special options.
A-series subsystems use a VXI digitizer and have an offset frequency range
from 0.01 Hz to 4 MHz.
Typically, A-series ATE solutions are equipment configurations that are
installed into, and function as subsystems of, a customer’s manufacturing
test system. This type of subsystem is not installed in a system cabinet
initially and may be used in a bench top arrangement. However, depending
upon the instruments and options chosen, portions of the equipment may
require further integration.
B-Series Systems
The standard B-series configurations are complete tested systems consisting
of a computer with preconfigured software, an MMS mainframe, plug-in
instruments, and a spectrum analyzer. B-series systems include a PC
digitizer card, an RF spectrum analyzer, and have an offset frequency range
from 0.1 Hz to 100 MHz.
Typically, the B-series systems are bench-top, research and development
oriented systems, but can also be installed in system cabinets in many
combinations.
