The N5291A PNA millimeter-wave network analyzer solution from Keysight operates from 900 Hz to 120 GHz. It produces metrology-grade results that enable developers to characterize their millimeter-wave designs. The new solution enhances device characterization and modeling by delivering exceptional stability and accuracy for on-wafer and connectorized measurements. Magnitude stability is less than 0.015 dB and phase accuracy is less than 0.15 degrees over a 24-hour period.
Leveraging Keysight's proven expertise in metrology, the solution's calibration capabilities are based on an improved-accuracy database that supports a 1.0 mm calibration kit (85059B) and a 1.0 mm verification kit (85059V). With this foundation, the new broadband millimeter-wave solution provides measurement results that are traceable to national metrology institutes. Ruggedized 1.0 mm test ports ensure repeatable connections that improve calibration uncertainty and therefore system-level measurement precision. Users can apply automatic fixture de-embedding to connectorized measurements or perform calibration at the probe tips during on-wafer measurements.
The broadband millimeter-wave solution also supports a variety of Keysight's proven measurement applications. Examples include complete characterization of amplifiers and frequency converters (gain compression software option), measurements of mixers and frequency converters (scalar mixer software option), and calibrated multi-channel spectrum measurements (extended spectrum analyzer software option).
