Keysight Introduces Next Generation of Benchtop, Modular and PXI Vector Network Analyzers

Keysight has launched the next generation of network analyzers - E5080B, P50xxA Series, and M980xA Series, which deliver reliability and repeatability with best-in-class dynamic range, trace noise, and temperature stability, as well as a wide range of software applications, enabling engineers to consistently achieve comprehensive device characterization.

The E5080B ENA Series are 2/4 Port Benchtop Vector Network Analyzers that operate from 9 kHz to 20 GHz.

The P50xxA Series are 2/4/6 Port Computer Controlled Vector Network Analyzers that operate from 9 kHz to 20 GHz and 100 kHz to 53 GHz.

The M980xA Series are PXIe Vector Network Analyzer that operate from 9 kHz to 20 GHz and 100 kHz to 53 GHz.

High-speed digital, wireless, aerospace and defense, and automotive companies need integrated active and passive components for devices such as cell phones, satellite communications, and 5G base stations, to increase performance and reduce the size of end products. These highly integrated devices require highly integrated test solutions that address radio frequency (RF) test challenges while providing advanced functionality and performance.

Keysight’s new E5080B, P50xxA Series, and M980xA Series network analyzers deliver next-generation features and performance in benchtop, USB, and PXI form factors. These new analyzers combine built-in pulse generators and modulators, spectrum analysis, and time domain analysis in a single instrument to save time by fully characterizing modern devices without the need for additional test hardware.

The new vector network analyzers enable customers to:

  • Simplify test setups that can be quickly reconfigured and calibrated
  • Reduce the number of parts in a test setup, minimizing maintenance and downtime costs
  • Accelerate test times and improve throughput with a simple, easily automated setup 
  • Enhance accuracy by eliminating loss from extra connections and external switches
  • Customize hardware to easily adapt to future test requirements

Keysight’s new network analyzers include the following measurement application software: 

  • automatic fixture removal  
  • time domain analysis
  • basic pulsed-RF measurements   
  • scalar mixer/converter measurements      
  • gain compression measurements   
  • spectrum analysis
