The Agilent PNA Series is a measurement platform that meets the challenge; with the right combination of fast sweep speeds, wide dynamic range, low trace noise, and flexible connectivity. Test your high-performance components with a fast, accurate network analyzer that meets your measurement needs now and well into the future.
The Microwave PNA Series brings superior performance to microwave frequencies in 20, 40, 50, and 67 GHz models. With exceptional stability (<0.06dB/C) and four receivers for TRL/LRM calibration, the Microwave PNA Series is ideal for your high-performance microwave components. In addition, the microwave models offer the option of frequency-offset measurements, enabling you to characterize mixers and amplifiers. The mixer measurement algorithm enables accurate characterization (including absolute group delay) of various mixer types, with an easy-to-use interface, and includes Agilents exclusive vector error-corrected calibration technique. The RF PNA series, with 3, 6, and 9 GHz models, provides TRL/LRM calibration for accurate characterization of in-fixture and on-wafer devices. Also, the 3-port models are ready to tackle components such as circulators, duplexers, splitters, couplers and base station combiner/divider units (CDUs) with their fast, simultaneous measurements of all three paths. The entire PNA series achieves new levels of connectivity. There are many methods of communication to and from the instrument, using a variety of built-in I/O interfaces. Windows 2000 lets you take advantage of many features you take for granted on your personal computer, helping you attain a new level of integration for your device-measurement purposes. For local storage, use the analyzers internal hard disk drive or connect a compatible CD drive. In addition, using drive mapping and the LAN interface, you can save data directly to remote PCs or file servers. This arrangement makes it very easy to develop statistical-process-controlled manufacturing environments. The PNA series allows a number of ways to connect and control other test equipment such as power meters or signal sources. You can choose to connect them via the available USB, GPIB, LAN, serial, or parallel interfaces. When utilizing any one of your Windows-supported automation tools, you can control the test equipment directly from the analyzer. The LAN interface also makes it easy to perform remote troubleshooting. You can view measurement results and control the analyzer from anywhere on the network, whether you are on another floor, in another building, or even at a different site. For manufacturing environments, test automation is essential for high throughput. For R+D, automated tests can save considerable time that might be spent on repetitive and tedious measurements. The PNA series lets you automate your test processes using several powerful automation approaches. You can create programs using familiar SCPI commands via the GPIB or LAN interfaces, or use COM commands over LAN for fast analyzer access. Decreasing test time is often critical for success in manufacturing environments. The PNA series has many attributes that help you accomplish your throughput goals. The outstanding performance of the analyzers starts with exceptionally fast sweeps that do not sacrifice performance. Features such as segmented sweep and limit lines for pass/fail testing allow you to most efficiently test your device. For devices that once required two to four instrument setups for complete characterization, the PNA series ability to have up to thirty-two-measurement channel, each with its own stimulus and response parameters, can also improve your test throughput. When using Agilents electronic calibration (ECal) modules, you can dramatically reduce the time it takes to perform calibrations. Simply connect the module to your test ports and let the analyzer control and measure all the standards necessary for full two-port calibration. These modules are controlled directly from the analyzer via a USB connection.
