Holzworth Extends its Phase Noise Analyzer Portfolio to 50 GHz for 5G and Radar Applications

The Wireless Telecom Group has announced the introduction of the Holzworth HA7063A Downconverter, which extends the capabilities of the Phase Noise Analyzer product portfolio to 50 GHz. The new downconverter solution was specifically designed to address measurement needs of high frequency, wide bandwidth 5G, and radar applications as well as seamlessly integrate with the Holzworth HA7000 Series Real-Time Phase Noise Analyzers, enabling both new and existing customers to unlock this extended performance and capability. The HA7063A delivers phase noise and RMS jitter measurements in real-time while providing ultra-low-noise measurement floors all within a compact form factor and an optimized price point.

The HA7063A Downconverter utilizes a unique heterodyne architecture that optimizes measurement noise floors across its entire frequency range, providing both absolute and additive (residual) phase noise measurement capability. The frequency extension enables the expansion of Holzworth Real-Time Phase Noise Analyzers with the distinctive ability to actually measure and quantify the noise floor of the instrument itself. Competitive products merely offer approximated noise floor information that can only be derived while measuring a device under test. The HA7000 Series utilizes high-speed digital processors and unparalleled front-end analog performance to provide a high level of accuracy and acquisition speed, as well as uncompromised performance and data repeatability. The HA7063A’s integration with the HA7000 Real-Time Phase Noise Analyzers is controlled through a single, highly intuitive user interface for simple operation.

Holzworth's high-performance phase noise analyzers, RF synthesizers, and peripheral components are relied upon to meet the current and emerging test and measurement needs in semiconductor ATE systems, quantum computing, and AI systems, military/aerospace ATE and calibration systems, OEM integrations, and benchtop applications. Holzworth products are designed for ultra-low phase noise performance while delivering proven accuracy, high reliability, automation, flexibility, and optimal performance-to-price ratios.
