Check option N9340B-IBC and
Know your spectrum
Regardless of whether you are handling military communications, a Wireless
Service Provider (WSP), or involved with spectrum management you need to
avoid impaired communication. The N9340B provides you with a reliable, accurate and detailed picture of your communication spectrum.
Optimize your test time versus accuracy
When you test, you need fast data capture to help locate and identify elusive,
transient interference signals. That’s why every N9340B spectrum analyzer has
a truly fast sweep time. It requires less time to measure across the spectrum,
to obtain more reliable test results and to help you achieve more for the same
investment of time and money.
Gain confidence in your test results
Spurious signals and noise are of great concern to all network users. A superior
combination of low displayed average noise level (DANL) and single sideband
(SSB) phase noise coupled with a narrow resolution bandwidth (RBW) means
your signal measurements are more reliable and you will have more confidence
in your test results. The N9340B’s low DANL and SSB phase noise helps you
detect very low-level signals (spurs or noise) which are close to the carrier. You
will avoid missing these difficult-to-identify signals, which would otherwise lead
to an insufficient or even incorrect understanding of the spectrum.
The N9340B’s RBW is the narrowest in its class. The narrow 30 Hz bandwidth
of the analyzer ensures that it is even easier to identify, resolve, and measure
two signals that are close together. Additionally, with a resolution filter shapefactor of less than 5, the N9340B has the ability to resolve closely spaced
signals with unequal amplitudes.
Moreover, the narrow RBW means that the spectrum analyzer introduces minimal noise itself, helping to further reduce DANL and improve sensitivity.
Superior sensitivity
With more wireless devices on the market requiring greater bandwidth usage,
the ability to discriminate between different signals becomes more challenging.
It’s under such demanding conditions that the superior performance of an
N9340B analyzer proves its worth. The N9340B has one of the best sensitivity
and selectivity specifications. The DANL is –124 dBm, or –144 dBm with the
optional preamplifier (30 Hz RBW, 10 MHz < fc ≤ 1.5 GHz). The optional preamplifier adds 20 dB gain for improved analyzer sensitivity.
Speed at your fingertips
The RF spectrum is a finite resource, therefore its usage requires management.
Most regulatory authorities responsible for administering frequency allocation
require service suppliers and network operators to perform routine monitoring of
signal power and transmission frequency stability.
N9340B applications for
field test
• Aerospace and defence:
Radio and radar test, interference analysis, on-site repair
• Wireless service providers:
Interference analysis, on-site
• TV and broadcasting:
Interference analysis, channel
power check
• Spectrum management
Spectrum monitoring
N9340B is now equipped with powerful features to address field applications
using a handheld spectrum analyzer. An analysis is identifying interfering
signals. These often arise from illegal transmissions, and may cause impairment
of services for authorized users, often resulting in financial loss. These interfering signals could possibly restrict critical communications of civil aviation and
emergency services, which could jeopardize public safety.
Now you can take advantage of the spectrogram display to view the behavior
of varying signal parameters over time. The N9340B includes spectrogramas a
standard feature. The scrolling three-dimensional display is noted for its ability
to track the frequency and power behavior over the time, particularly intermittent signals. The user can use spectrogramto analyze the stability of a signal
over the time, or to identify intermittent interference signals in communications
There are two markers for the user to identify power versus frequency and time.
Also the time interval between two consecutive colored rows can be adjusted.
When amarker is put on the spectrogram, the N9340B can display the trace for
the time of the selected marker.
The spectrogramdata and screenshots can be saved and recalled for later
analysis or reporting.
The spectrogram gives the threedimensional display of power, frequency
and time.
Extended spectrogrammonitoring (Option INM)
Option INM extends the N9340B spectrogram capability further with the ability
to continuously monitor and save spectrogram data over time not only to the
analyzer’s internal memory or a USB flash drive, but also directly to a PC. With
option INM users can save more than 1,500 continuous frames of data depending on the size of the USB flash drive or PC memory.
Option INM also supports an Automatic Save function. The N9340B can save
the spectrogram at a user specific time or at a set interval of frame. All the
small files with the same prefix can be combined into one file using N9340 PC
Software, making analysis easier.
The user can choose among the 3 display modes: spectrogram only, spectrum
trace only or the combination of a spectrogram and a spectrum trace in one
screen. Limit lines with pass/fail functionality is also available in this measurement. The N9340B will identify the failed frame of spectrogram data with a
red mark. The Pass/Fail test can also provide alerts. Users may use marker to
find the previous/next frame failed data to quickly find the offending event or
interference. The spectrogram data may be played back for review on either the
analyzer’s display or on a PC utilizing N9340B PC Software.
With the option INM, the Agilent N9340B spectrum analyzer can provide
unattended monitoring of communication systems capturing performance
or intermittent events like interference over extended periods of time – days
rather than hours. The option INMcan provide additional value for the wireless
network communication system managers, hospital administrators, etc. as well
as police and homeland security by recording spectrogram measurement results
over time.
The N9340B INM shows spectrogram and
spectrum trace on the same screen.
DSL measurements (Option XDM)
xDSL (ADSL and VDSL) is widely used for broadband internet connections
at homes and businesses. Service providers occasionally face problems with
interference on their xDSL lines. The interference is mainly intermittent intrusion
from nearby external sources such as electric motors, elevators, and appliances.
In order to monitor, capture and remove intermittent interference, the engineer
may need to work in the field for extended periods of time.
With hardware option XDM the N9340B now supports measurements on ADSL,
ADSL2+ and VDSL networks. It provides very good sensitivity with low displayed
average noise levels (DANL) to meet the mask requirements over ADSL frequency ranges, from 9 kHz to 12 MHz, for ADSL.
Users may choose t o make the xDSL measurement in either spectrum analysis
or spectrogram mode. Using xDSL measurement in spectrogram mode is ideal
for capturing intermittent interference on xDSL lines. When used with option
INM, the DSL measurement application can measure and record DSL performance data to a USB flash drive or PC over hours or even days.
An xDSL probe from Vierling is required to connect the N9340B analyzer to xDSL
networks for measurements in the field.
The option XDM is not available as an upgrade and must be ordered at the time
of instrument purchase. The XDM option can also be used for other applications
which require improved DANL and phase noise at frequencies from 9 kHz to
12 MHz.
ADSL measurement with N9340B XDM
IBOC measurements (Option IBC)
N9340B IBC also supports a onebutton auto-tune function that greatly
simplifies the otherwise complex
user setup required to capture and
measure IBOC signals of interest.
The auto-tune function will automatically set the frequency span, RBW,
Average and Detector types, etc. It
only takes seconds for the auto-tune
function to display the correct measurement results.
Option IBC equips the N9340B with in-band on-channel (IBOC) measurement
capability through a dedicated measurement personality and selected hardware
improvements. IBOC technology is a method of transmitting digital and analog
radio broadcast signals (AM and FM) simultaneously on the same frequency.
This HD Radio™ version of hybrid digital/analog technology is the only one
approved by the FCC for U.S. radio broadcast stations.
The included Channel list feature
enables users to easily create and
recall setup and measurement
parameters for single or multiple
broadcast frequencies and channels.
The user no longer needs to spend
time remembering numerous channel setups but can simply load the
desired channel from the list to start
a measurement. The Channel list can
be loaded, copied and deleted.
Option IBC has built-in FCC and NRSC (National Radio Systems Committee)
spectral emission masks for quick compliance measurements with visual and
audible pass/fail indicators.
The IBC option adds enhanced SSB phase noise for IBOC AM measurements
and a noise cancellation process for improved IBOC FM measurement margins.
IBOC-AMcovers 530 kHz to 1.7 MHz and IBOC-FMcovers the 87.5 MHz to
108 MHz frequencies.
N9340B is the industry’s first
handheld spectrum analyzer with a
dedicated IBOC measurement mode.
The option IBC is not available as an
upgrade and must be ordered at the
time of instrument purchase.

One-button measurement
The Agilent N9340B supports one-button measurements of occupied bandwidth,
channel power and adjacent channel power ratio. This virtually eliminates set-up
time in the field.
Occupied bandwidth (OBW)
An occupied bandwidth measurement integrates the power of the displayed
spectrum and puts one pair of vertical lines at the frequencies between which
the interested signal is contained.
An N9340B spectrum analyzer supports two ways to measure the occupied
bandwidth, in percentage or in dBc.
The occupied bandwidth measured in
The occupied bandwidth measured in dBc.
Channel power
Use channel power to measure both power and power spectral density in a
user-specified channel bandwidth. One pair of vertical lines on the display
indicates the edges of the channel bandwidth.
It is quick and easy to set center
frequency integration bandwidth, and
channel bandwidth.
Adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR)
Wireless service providers need to minimize the interference caused by power
leaking into adjacent transmit channels. Adjacent channel power ratio measurements help to check for signal leakage and the identification and control of
sources of interference.
Center frequency, main channel
bandwidth, adjacent channel bandwidth,
and channel space can eadily be set.
Spectrum emission mask (SEM)
The new N9340B adds Spectrum Emission Mask (SEM) as a standard feature.
SEMis a mask for out-of-channel emissions measurement. The SEMis defined
relative to in-channel power.
The user can set the parameters of the main channel, out-of-channel frequency
bands, and the limit lines. Included is Pass/Fail testing for the overall spectrum
emission mask and each individual out-of-channel frequency range. The N9340B
will trigger the failure indicator once any measurement result violates the mask.
Also displayed are the main channel power and the power level metrics relative
to in-channel power for each out-of-channel frequency range. The user can
save the spectrum scan, the mask, the data or screenshot for later analysis and
The spectrum emission mask shows the
main channel power and the power level
vectors relative to in-channel power for
each out-of-channel frequency range.
AM/FM modulation analysis (Option AMA)
Optional AM/FM modulation analysis shows the metrics you need, including
carrier power, modulation rate, AM depth/FM deviation, SINAD and carrier
frequency offset. User definable limits provide Pass/Fail indicators in 4 cases:
higher than carrier power, larger than AM modulation index or FM deviation,
lower than AM modulation index or FM deviation, or larger than carrier frequency offset. The user can save the waveforms with metrics for reporting as
well as the set-up parameters for future measurements or analysis.
The detailed metrics offer you the
complete understanding of the AM.
The detailed metrics offer you the
complete understanding of the FM.
ASK/FSK modulation analysis (Option DMA)
Optional ASK/FSK modulation analysis is now available. Amplitude Shift Keying
(ASK) is used in RFID and optical systems. Frequency Shift Keying (FSK) is used
in many applications including cordless phone, paging system and RFID.
N9340B with option DMA supports 4 display modes: Symbol, Waveform,
ASK/FSK Error, and Eye Diagram. Included is Pass/Fail testing of higher than
carrier power, higher than ASK modulation depth/FSK frequency deviation,
lower than ASK modulation depth/FSK frequency deviation and higher than
FSK frequency deviation. The metrics you need are shown, including carrier
power, ASK/FSK error, ASK depth/FSK frequency deviation, and ASK index etc.
For reports and future measurements the waveform with metrics and setup
parameters can be saved.
The Eye Diagram of ASK also shows the
metrics with detailed parameters.
The Waveform of FSK also shows the
metrics with detailed parameters.
High accuracy power measurement
The N9340B now supports high-accuracy, USB plug-and-play power measurements as standard when connected to an Agilent U2000 series USB power
sensor. Make true average power measurements for all signal types with wide
dynamic range up to 18 GHz with just the push of a button. The Agilent U2000
USB sensors require no external power supplies and with internal zeroing eliminate the need for external calibration. Without the need for additional boxes,
the user can easily set up, calibrate and control the power meter/sensor via the
analyzer’s USB port. The N9340B can collect, display and save the power meter
The analyzer also provides Pass/Fail testing with user set upper and lower
limits and a Pass/Fail indicator. Test results are shown in dBm and W when
making absolute measurements and in dB and percentage when measurements
are relative. Two display modes are available: Meter or the Chart mode to log
power measurements over time.
N9340B supports Meter and Chart
mode to display the results of power
N9340B supports U2000 series USB
power sensors for high accuracy power
Field strength measurement
Electric field strength measurements are frequently required for field testing
of transmitter and antenna coverage. Field strength measurements are now a
standard function in the N9340B. Calibrated field strength measurements are
easy to make once the antenna factors are loaded into the analyzer via the
provided PC software based antenna template. Either field strength (in dBμV/m,
dBmV/m, or V/m) or power flux density (in dBm/m or W/m) can be displayed.
With the amplitude offset function, the user can correct gain or loss. And finally
together with the user-definable multi-limit line function, the N9340B offers the
user quick and convenient field strength measurements and analysis.
The field strength measurement
automatically takes into the account of
the antenna factor. The antenna table
is definable by the standard N9340B PC
Channel table
For the users who prefer to tune the spectrum analyzer according to channel
numbers rather than center frequency, you will find the new Channel Table
feature easy-to-use. The Channel Table includes the major wireless communication standards, such as AMPS, GSM/EDGE/GPRS, CDMA, CDMA2000 etc.
The Channel Table can also be edited by the user with the included N9340 PC
Software. The revised Channel Table can be downloaded to the analyzer via a
PC USB cable or a USB memory stick.
The channel table offers the ability
to tune N9340B according to channel
