The PSA Series modern instrument architecture features an all digital IF section, a highly accurate internal reference signal, and automatic internal alignment processes to achieve unsurpassed accuracy, guaranteed by Agilents high standards for meeting our published specifications.
The PSA Series spectrum analyzer is designed to optimize measurements for speed and dynamic range. With a 2-dB step attenuator and 160 resolution bandwidth settings (in 10% steps), you can customize each of your measurements to achieve the best combination of speed and dynamic range.
With the all-digital IF, the PSA can perform both swept or FFT measurements.
FFT capability can significantly reduce the sweep time in narrow span measurements and low-level spur searches.
Increase the dynamic range of your close-to-carrier measurements with the phase noise optimization feature of the PSA Series. Depending on how close to or far from the carrier you are measuring, the PSA has different LO phase lock loop configurations to reduce phase noise and therefore increase the dynamic range of your measurement.
Analyzer time varying signals such as pulsed RF, time division multiple access (TDMA), interleaved and burst-modulated with gated sweep capability. This type of time gating makes fast spectrum measurements on burst signals without interference from switching the carrier on and off.
The PSA Series offers a standard suite of flexible, one-button RF and microwave power measurements with format based setups. With Power Suite, measurements that were once difficult and tedious to make are now executed with a single button press and provide easyto- read results.
One-button measurements include: channel power occupied bandwidth, adjacent channel power (ACP), multi-carrier ACP power, statistics (CCDF), harmonic distortion, burst power, third order intercept (TOI), spurious emissions, spectrum emission mask.
Format-based setups for:
IS-95C GSM/EDGE 3GPP W-CDMA cdma2000.
W-LAN (802.11a/b/g) W-LAN HiperLAN/2.
The PSA Series offers a variety of optional measurement personalities to expand measurement capability. A measurement personality is a software program that can transform the spectrum analyzer into another type of test instrument, essentially giving it another personality.
You can make the most challenging measurements very easily and with the same instrument you use for spectrum analysis.
Perform phase noise measurements for oscillator tests, measure the noise figure of your amplifier, or even perform modulation analysis on your 2G or 3G signal. If you have a proprietary modulated signal that you want to test, you can link the PSA to the 89601A vector signal analysis software for flexible demodulation and analysis.
The PSA Series has built-in capability to network with PCs, printers, software programs, and test systems. Features include IVI-COM drivers for developing measurement routines and collecting results,.
IntuiLink connectivity software to transfer measurement results and screen captures directly into Microsoft Excel and Word, a floppy disk drive to store results and display data, and GPIB and 10 baseT LAN for SCPI programming. You can also operate the analyzer remotely, anywhere in the world, using our BenchLink Web Remote control software (Option 230).
