Keysight Technologies has launched the next generation of network analyzers which company said will deliver reliability and repeatability with dynamic range, trace noise and temperature stability, as well as a wide range of software applications, enabling engineers to achieve comprehensive device characterization.
Keysight Technologies said that high-speed digital, wireless, aerospace and defence, and automotive companies need integrated active and passive components for devices such as cell phones, satellite communications, and 5G base stations, to increase performance and reduce the size of end products. These highly integrated devices require highly integrated test solutions that address radio frequency (RF) test challenges while providing advanced functionality and performance.
The company claims that its new E5080B, P50xxA Series and M980xA Series network analyzers will deliver next-generation features and performance in benchtop, USB, and PXI form factors. These new analyzers combine built-in pulse generators and modulators, spectrum analysis, and time domain analysis in a single instrument to save time by fully characterizing modern devices without the need for additional test hardware.
“Keysight understands the unique challenges engineers face when testing components that require a wide variety of measurements, such as multiple-input-multiple-output antennas used in wireless or radio applications,” said Joe Rickert, vice president of high-frequency measurement R&D, at Keysight Technologies.
“Keysight's new network analyzers deliver the core functionality needed for engineers to perform the required variety of measurements via a single instrument,” said Rickert.
