The Keysight SNS Series of noise sources work in conjunction with the Keysight NFA Series of noise figure analyzers and ESA E-Series spectrum analyzers with noise figure personality. To simplify measurement set-up and improve accuracy these noise sources automatically download electronically stored calibration data to the compatible Keysight noise figure measuring analyzers. The noise sources also have the capability to automatically measure their own temperature so that compensation can be applied to the calibration data. These capabilities increase the overall reliability and accuracy of noise figure measurements.
SNS Series key features and benefits:
– Automatic download of ENR data to the analyzer speeds overall setup time.
– Electronic storage of Excess Noise Ratio (ENR) calibration data decreases the opportunity for user error.
– Temperature sensing improves measurement accuracy, leading to tighter specification of device performance.
The N4000A and N4001A, which cover the 10 MHz to 18 GHz frequency range, come with an APC 3.5 (m) connector as standard, and offer the option of a Type-N (m) connector.
The N4002A, which covers the frequency range 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz, has an APC 3.5 (m) connector as standard.
