- 9KHz - 12.8GHz frequency range
- -112dBm noise floor (1KHz)
- 1KHz - 3MHz RBW (optional down to 30Hz)
- Custom measurement personalities + many options
- Easy to use and portable
Application measurement personalities customize the analyzer for tasks such as cable TV, EMC, digital cellular radio, RF communication, noise-figure and scalar network analysis measurements. Y ou can also add a variety of printers plotters and other accessories.
You can change the test capabilities of these spectrum analyzers to fit specific measurement needs. A memory card reader enables you to load application measurement personalities. Complex measurement routines are reduced to a keystroke. An option cardcage uniq ue to the
HP 8590 E-series allows you to add circuit-card options for additional capability. Optional built-in tracking generators provide a synchronously swept signal source for stimulus-response measurements. Operating any HP 8590 series spectrum analyzer req uires only minimal training.
Numerous features make it easier to control measurements and to analyze the results. These spectrum analyzers have built-in automatic calibration to ensure measurement consistency. Frequency panning lets you quickly reposition signals without repeated sweeps. The internal memory allows over 50 traces to be stored and more can be stored on RAM cards using the memory-card reader. Time and date stamping come standard.
Direct output to printer or plotter is available with either the HPIB / parallel or the RS-232/ parallel interface option. Both Hewlett-Packard and selected Epson printers are supported.
The new HP BenchLink Spectrum Analyzer PC software provides an easy-to-use communications link between your PC and the HP 8590 Series spectrum analyzers. Taking full advantage of the Windows interface you can easily transfer screen images or trace data via HP-IB or RS-232 interfaces, thereby making it easy to capture, analyze and document measurement results in a PC environment.
These portable spectrum analyzers bring powerful comprehensive measurement capabilities to R F microwave and digital applications.
Performance specifications include low phase noise of 105 dBc at 30 kHz offset and freq uency-synthesized accuracy of 2.1kHz at 1GHz, which can be improved to 210 Hz with an optional precision frequency reference. Second- and third-order dynamic ranges are 77 and 90 dB respectively. Calibrated amplitude range is + 30 to 130 dBm with Option 130 and calibrated onscreen display range is 70dB . Narrow resolution bandwidths of 30, 100, 200 EMI and 300 Hz are available on an optional circuit card which can be added to these analyzers at any time.
A window capability divides the display into two horizontal areas allowing you to zoom in on critical areas of a measurement trace or to display test data and the trace simultaneously. Many one-button measurements are standard including a marker table FF,T N dB bandwidths, thirdorder intercept, percent AM, and adjacent-channel power. A built-in memory card reader allows you to load measurement personalities your own custom programs and measurement data.
A growing number of circuit-card options provides even more measurement capability. Circuit cards are installed easily into a built-in cardcage and most are retrofittable. Circuit-card options include:
Narrow resolution bandwidths of 30, 100, 200 EMI and 300 Hz.
Time-gated spectrum analysis.
Analog+ display and fast time-domain sweeps.
AM / FM demodulator.
TV receiver/ video tester.
Demodulators for CT2-CAI and DECT.
Digital demodulators and/or digital signal processing for GSM 900.
Mobile radio standards.
A built-in 1.8GHz tracking generator (retrofittable) is available for the HP 8591 E and a 2.9GHz tracking generator (retrofittable) for the 8593E, 8594E, 8595E and 8596 E. The HP 85902A burst carrier trigger provides a TTL timing reference for digital wireless communication measurements.
