The N5227B Series from Keysight Technologies are 2-Port and 4-Port Vector Network Analyzers that operates from 900 Hz to 67 GHz. These VNAs can measure S-parameters with the smallest uncertainty and high stability, and efficiently characterize active components with applications that simplify setups. This VNA has a dynamic range of 128 dB and harmonics of -60 dBc. The device accelerates insight into component behavior using a multi-touch display and intuitive user interface. It contains a proprietary low-spurious direct digital synthesis (DDS) source, enabling customers to take accurate measurements with less phase noise interference.
With the clean source signals, customers can perform two-tone IMD measurements with close tone spacing previously only possible with high-performance analog signal generators. The new DDS sources also enhance the performance of a wide range of software applications, including modulation distortion, SMC with phase, and I/Q converter measurements, to provide exceptional speed in mixer/frequency converter characterization. The device provides the following key benefits:
- Simplified test stations by replacing racks and stacks of equipment.
- Reduced test time with a wide range of single-connection measurement applications.
- Accurate linear and nonlinear device characterization using advanced error correction.
- Accelerated insight into component behavior using a multi-touch display and intuitive user interface.
This network analyzer is available as a benchtop unit with various connectors and interface options.
