The P5024A from Keysight Technologies is a USB Controlled Vector Network Analyzer that operates from 9 kHz to 20 GHz. This VNA is available in 4 Port or 6 Port configurations. It provides high performance in key specifications such as dynamic range, measurement speed, trace noise, and temperature stability. The VNA has a frequency resolution of 1 Hz with a frequency accuracy of ±7 ppm and has a typical dynamic range of 137 dB from 16 to 20 GHz. It has a power sweep range from -60 to +7 dBm (@16 – 20 GHz) and an output port power of up to +13 dBm.
The P5024A features the same intuitive GUI as Keysight’s PNA, ENA, and PXI VNAs. A common software platform makes it easy to choose the right level of performance to match budget and measurement needs. This commonality guarantees measurement consistency, repeatability, and a common remote-programming interface across multiple instruments in R&D and manufacturing. It is available in a compact package that measures 176 x 48 x 333 mm and weighs 2.82 kg. The VNA is suitable for testing passive components, amplifiers, mixers, or frequency converters.
