Agilent Technologies Introduces 14 New FieldFox Handheld Analyzers

September 4, 2012 Leave a comment

Delivering Bench-top Accuracy, MIL-spec Durability to Field Applications. 

 Agilent Technologies Inc, today announced 14 FieldFox handheld analyzers that deliver benchtop-instrument accuracy in field-test environments. Designed for harsh conditions and hard-to-reach locations, FieldFox analyzers cover satellite communications, microwave backhaul, military communications, radar systems and a wide range of additional applications.

FieldFox microwave analyzers can be configured as cable-and-antenna analyzers, spectrum analyzers, vector network analyzers, or all-in-one combination analyzers. Each compact, 6.6-pound (3.0-kg) package is available in four frequencies: 9, 14, 18 or 26.5 GHz.

To ensure durability in harsh field environments, the completely sealed enclosure is compliant with U.S. MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2 requirements. To enhance ease of use, the instrument has a vertical, or “portrait,” orientation and large buttons, allowing users to easily operate the unit with their thumbs, even while wearing gloves.

“Measuring up and earning a spot in our customer’s field kit is the driving idea behind the FieldFox analyzers,” said Guy Séné, president of Agilent’s Electronic Measurement Group. “These rugged performers equip on-the-go personnel to handle routine maintenance, in-depth troubleshooting and anything in between. Better yet, FieldFox delivers Agilent-quality microwave measurements – wherever our customers need to go.”

FieldFox microwave vector network analyzers provide full two-port S-parameter measurements with a remarkably low trace noise of ± 0.004 dB and superior dynamic range of 94 dB (up to 18 GHz). The VNAs offer an industry-first QuickCal function, which enables hassle-free calibration without external accessories. With any other instrument, adding devices such as jumper cables to the test port requires recalibrating with an external calibration kit.

FieldFox microwave spectrum analyzers provide industry-leading amplitude accuracy of ±0.5 dB at power-up, with no warm-up required, allowing field users to instantly and precisely characterize transmitter power. They can detect more signals in the band of interest with phase noise of -111 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset, and measure low-level signals in the presence of high-power transmitters with spur-free dynamic range of 105 dB.

The combination analyzers’ base function is cable and antenna analysis, and users can configure the instrument to do spectrum and vector network analysis as well. To further save space in a field kit, FieldFox analyzers can be ordered with a built-in power meter, independent signal generator, vector voltmeter, interference analysis, variable DC source, frequency counter and built-in GPS receiver.

Among the 14 models are two new FieldFox RF combination analyzers: the N9913A (4 GHz) and the N9914A (6.5 GHz). These models expand Agilent’s RF lineup, which already includes the highly integrated N9912A RF analyzer (4 or 6 GHz) and the highly accurate N9923A RF vector network analyzer (4 or 6 GHz).


(Promo Code #5.900)

Starting September 1st, 2012, receive a free Build-in Power Meter when you purchase any FieldFox analyzer, this promotion will end on Feb 28th, 2012.

Agilent Introduces New Family of Waveform Generators

August 21, 2012 Leave a comment

Agilent Technologies Inc, today introduced the 33500B Series waveform generators. The eight new one- and two-channel models, which generate waveforms up to 30 MHz, incorporate exclusive Trueform signal-generation technology. Trueform enables these models to offer unmatched capabilities for generating a full range of signals for the most demanding measurements required when designing electronic devices.

The 33500B waveform generators provides the lowest jitter and lowest total harmonic distortion in their calss, giving the engineers the ability to generate the exact signals they need. With better jitter performance, engineers can place edges more accurately, helping them reduce timing errors in their circuit designs. With total harmonic  distortion less than 0.04 percent and non-harmonic spurs less than 75dBc, the 33500B Series offers clean signals that don’t introduce noise, enabling users to get more accurate results.

The 33500B Series’ 8.4-ns rise and fall times and low jitter allow engineers to set trigger points more accurately as well. The instruments’ 16 bits of resolution allows engineers to make output changes down to 1 uV – giving them the ability to test today’s low-voltage circuits and designs.

With the 33500B Series, engineers can take advantage of easy software upgrades to expand the instruments’ capabilities when they need to increase bandwidth and add true point-by-point arbitrary waveforms and deeper waveform memory.

Trueform Technology

Over the past two decades, direct digital synthesis has been the waveform-generation technology of choice in function generators and economical arbitrary waveform generators. Waveform generators built with DDS offer good frequency resolution, convenient custom waveforms and a low price. However, DDS has intrinsic limitations as well. Engineers with exacting requirements have had to either work around the compromised performance or spend up to 10 times more for a high-end, point-by-point waveform generator.

“Trueform  technology offers a new alternative that blends the best of DDS and point-by-point architectures, giving engineers the benefits of both without the limitations of either,” said Gary Whitman, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s System Products Division.  “Trueform  technology uses an exclusive digital sampling technique that delivers unmatched performance at the same low price customers expect with DDS.”

Unique Capabilities

In addition to point-by-point arbitrary wave-forms, the 33500B Series offers features not normally found on waveform generators in this class:

Waveform summing and combining capability: Allows engineers to easily add noise to signals for margin and distortion testing using only a single channel. On a two-channel model, engineers can sum and combine up to four signals.

Variable-bandwidth noise: Allows engineers to adjust the bandwidth of the built-in noise generator to control the frequency content of their signals.

Waveform sequencing: Allows engineers to create multiple configured waveforms with several common segments.  Users can also build long, complex waveforms using minimal instrument memory.

Pseudo-random binary sequence pattern generation: Allows engineers to test digital serial buses by streaming standard PRBS patterns – like PN7 and PN19 – without the need for a separate pulse generator.

Optional baseband IQ player: Allows wireless communication engineers to economically play IQ signals without the need for an expensive signal generator. The IQ player provides the ability to make adjustments to the signal, including amplitude gain, channel offset and channel skew as needed for a more accurate representation.
