E5061B network analyzer

The Agilent Technologies is offering the E5061B network analyzer that handles frequency range as low as 5Hz up to the RF range of 3GHz, eliminating the need for additional low-frequency-dedicated instruments.

Applications for the Agilent E5061B, part of the ENA series of network analyzers, include general RF-network measurements, such as filters or amplifier tests, and low-frequency measurements necessary for loop-gain evaluation of DC/DC converters.

The E5061B's frequency coverage is suitable for power distribution networks measurements, which evaluate the quality of a DC power supply circuit. This type of evaluation is increasingly important, especially in high-speed digital communication equipment.

The analyzer features S-parameter test port, 5Hz to 3GHz, with a wide dynamic range of 120dB at over 1MHz, 90dB at under 100Hz. The device also included gain-phase test port at 5Hz to 30MHz and switchable 1M?/50? input. In addition, the network analyzer has DC bias source from 0 to 40Vdc, which can be added to AC test signal (for both S-parameter and gain-phase test port) or can be used as a sweepable DC source. The E5061B comes in a compact form factor with a 254mm depth, requiring less desktop space.
