Agilent PNA network analyser metrology option

Friday, 10 January, 2014 | Supplied by: Keysight Technologies Australia Pty Ltd

Agilent Technologies has introduced a metrology option for its PNA family of network analysers that offers metrology institutes and calibration laboratories enhanced S-parameter measurement accuracy.

The metrology option employs a special technique for accurately characterising the thermal stability of Agilent’s PNA network analysers, independent of the effects from cables and adapters. The technique provides 48 hours of stabilisation data that accurately characterises instrument drift stored on the analyser’s hard drive.

In addition, the metrology option has optimised the raw performance of the PNA family to address the specific measurement needs of metrology laboratories. For example, all front-panel loops were removed to improve stability. The PNA’s raw source match and load match were also optimised. Receiver linearity was realised by specialised hardware techniques based on Agilent’s in-house semiconductor processes.

Agilent’s PNA family of network analysers includes the PNA-L, PNA and PNA-X Series, covering frequencies from 300 kHz to 1.05 THz.
