Agilent 8566B Spectrum Analyzer
100 Hz to 22 Ghz
Technical Overview
Outstanding Precision and Capability
The Agilent 8566B
Spectrum Analyzer…
…the Spectrum Analyzer
that keeps getting better
Designed for bench and system
use, the 8566B offers superior
measurement speed, microwave
frequency accuracy, and sensitivity.
Measure low-level signals up to 22 GHz
with narrow resolution bandwidths.
Synthesizer stability virtually eliminates long-term drift and residual FM.
Turbo speed option
Frequency range is 100 Hz to 22 GHz
with a dc-coupled input. Preselected
external mixers extend this coverage
from 26.5 to 75 GHz. Other external
mixers allow measurement to 325 GHz.
An internal bus and microcomputer
control make possible many powerful
operating and data processing features,
as well as flexibility under computer
control. Sixteen Kbytes of user RAM
are available for storing trace data,
instrument states, and custom downloadable programs (DLPs). All displayed
information can be sent directly to a
plotter when sweeptime is greater
than or equal to 20 ms.
Accurate measurements
Amplitude measurement range
extends from +30 to -135 dBm
with a 90 dB calibrated display.
-9
Less than 1 x 10 /day frequency
reference error and the spectrum
analyzer selectivity allow high
frequency accuracy even when you
are measuring small signals in the
presence of large ones.
Already a world leader in measurement speed, the 8566B can be made even
faster with Option 002, which nearly doubles the internal processing speed
of the analyzer. Some measurements can be made up to 50% faster, and
overall throughput is typically improved by 5 to 25%. (Sweep speed is not
affected by Option 002.)
The turbo option is compatible with all 8566B accessories, and it can be
added to any 8566B without affecting specifications. (An 8566A must first be
upgraded to a 8566B.)
Accessories and options
By adding measurement accessories and options, the 8566B spectrum
analyzer fits into many applications, including electromagnetic
compatibility (EMC) testing, broadband signal surveillance, and
component stimulus response testing.
• EMI measurement accessories and software create systems for testing
to commercial and military standards.
• Microwave tracking sources add scalar measurement capability.
• Preselected external mixers simplify millimeter-wave measurements
from 26.5 to 75 GHz.
• Interactive test generator (ITG) soft-front-panel-based drivers speed
software development.
• MIL-STD 45662A calibrations are available.
Custom Soft key programming
You can create complex measurement routines on an external controller, store
the programs in user RAM, and execute them using a single custom soft key.
Simple measurement routines can be entered from the intrument front
panel, stored in user RAM, and executed using a single custom soft key.

Solutions
Test systems tailored to your needs
For EMI troubleshooting and pre-qualification testing, use your 8566B
spectrum analyzer with components and accessories from Agilent
Technology’s complete line of EMI products. The many offerings include
current probes, line impedance stabilization networks (LISNs), antennas,
positioning equipment, EMI measurement software, an RF preselector, and
a quasi-peak adapter.
Commercial and MIL EMI receivers
The 8566B spectrum analyzer forms the heart of two powerful and flexible
EM1 receivers. These receivers are ideal for commercial and military EMI
compliance testing from 20 Hz to 40 GHz.
The 8571A receiver is optimized for military EMI testing, making both peak
and average detection measurements using impulse bandwidths. The 8572A
includes all the features and capabilities of the 8571A, but adds quasi-peak
detection and specialized IF bandwidths for commercial compliance
measurements.
Both receivers offer ±2 dB absolute amplitude accuracy over their full 20 Hz
to 22 GHz frequency range, as required by MIL-STD 461 and CISPR
Publication 16. For higher frequency measurements, a 22 to 40 GHz block
downconverter can be added. The receivers include a built-in, 1 to 26.5 GHz
amplifier and a 20 Hz to 50 MHz input port with a built-in limiter and
rugged attenuator. They are also compatible with EMI measurement software
and complete line of test accessories.

Accessories That
Enhance Performance
Millimeter mixers
Preselected mixers
The 11974 Series preselected mixers eliminate the need for time-consuming
signal identification routines at millimeter frequencies. With preselection, no
images or multiples are generated to confuse measurements. These external
mixers allow you to quickly locate true signals, and they simplify software
development for automated measurements. The 11974 Series mixers are
available in four bands covering 26.5 to 75 GHz.
Harmonic mixers
The 11970 Series waveguide mixers are general-purpose external harmonic
mixers. They offer flat frequency response and low conversion loss without
requiring external dc bias or tuning adjustment. The 11970 Series mixers are
offered in six bands covering 18 to 110 GHz.
Preselected mixers eliminate images and multiples.
6
Harmonic mixing extends frequency range.
Tracking Sources
Add high dynamic range scalar measurement capability to the 8566B.
The 85644A and 85645A portable tracking sources allow you to use your
spectrum analyzer for measuring transmission and reflection characteristics
of devices. You can also characterize harmonic distortion, intermodulation
distortion, spurious products, and more.
The tracking sources give the 8566B dynamic range greater than 125 dB up
to 12.5 GHz and greater than 105 dB through 22 GHz.
Other features include:
• Swept offset tracking for mixer testing and swept TOI measurements
• Up to +10 dBm leveled output power
• Standalone CW source capability
High dynamic range scalar measurement

Microwave preamplifier
Boost the sensitivity of the 8566B spectrum analyzer with the 8449B
microwave preamplifier. This low noise, high gain preamplifier has a
frequency range of 1 to 26.5 GHz. Sensitivity improvements of up to 25 dB
allow you to detect and analyze very low level signals in dramatically
reduced time, using wider handwidths. Low return loss on the input and
output ports of the preamplifier minimizes mismatch uncertainty.
