Compatibility of U2000 with Agilent instruments

Keywords:power meter? power sensor? U2000 Series?

Making precise power measurement requires both a power meter and a power sensor. The power sensor converts the RF signal and microwave signal into analogue signals. Subsequently, the power meter will perform the statistical processing and display the result in decimal format. Today, the Agilent U2000 Series USB power sensors connect to a PC via the USB port, providing power measurements ranging from +20 dBm to C60 dBm, and over frequencies ranging from 9kHz to 24GHz. The combination of power meter and power sensor makes the U2000 Series USB power sensor a stand-alone instrument that provides an affordable solution for power measurement. Results of the power measurement can be retrieved through the power measurement software on the PC via USB cable or via SCPI commands. The U2000 Series USB power sensors are also compatible with Agilent instruments such as the vector network analyser, spectrum analyser, signal generator, cable and antenna tester, and FieldFox RF analyser.

This application note explains how the U2000 Series USB power sensor performs source power calibration with the N5230A PNA-L and scalar analysis of a frequency converter with E5071C ENA vector network analyser. The U2000 Series USB power sensors are able to turn the N9340A handheld spectrum analyser into a power meter function and also perform user flatness correction (UFC) with external leveling using the N5183A MXG signal generator.
