Keysight (Agilent) 4396B 1.8GHz Network/Spectrum Analyser Description:
- 100KHz - 1.8GHz frequency range
- Full vector network and spectrum measurement and analysis
- Wide dynamic range and fast sweep speed
- +-0.05dB / +-0.3 degree dynamic accuracy
- Impedance analysis option and test kit available
The 4396B provides excellent RF vector network, spectrum, and optional impedance measurements for lab and production applications. Gain, phase, group delay, distortion, spurious, CN, and noise measurements often required for evaluating components and circuits can be measured using one instrument.
When combined with a test set, the 4396B provides reflection measurements, such as return loss, and SWR and S parameters. As a vector network analyzer, the 4396B operates from 100 kHz to 1.8 GHz with 1 mHz resolution and its integrated synthesized source provides -60 to +20 dBm of output power with 0.1 dB resolution. The dynamic magnitude and phase accuracy are +/-0.05 dB and +/-0.3 deg so that it can accurately measure gain and group delay flatness, which are becoming more important in modern electronics systems.
As a spectrum analyzer, the 4396B operates from 2Hz to 1.8 GHz with resolution bandwidths (RBWs) spanning 1 Hz to 3 MHz in a 1-3-10 sequence. A fully-synthesized local oscillator allows stable and accurate frequency analysis. Direct A/D conversion (no LOG amplifier is used) results in +/-1.0 dB overall level accuracy. Noise sidebands fall below -105 dBc/Hz offset 10 kHz from carriers below 1 GHz, while sensitivity is -150 dBm/Hz at 10 MHz and -147 dBm/Hz at 1 GHz. In addition, with two independent display channels available, you can simultaneously view network and spectrum (or transmission and reflection) characteristics of the device under test in split-screen format. For example, an amplifiers frequency response (network measurement) and distortion (spectrum measurement) can be shown at the same time.
The 4396B features a stepped Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) digital signal- processing (DSP) technique for 20 to 100 times faster narrowband spectrum measurement than swept-tuned spectrum analyzers.
The stepped FFT is performed when the resolution bandwidth (RBW) is set at 3kHz or below. For example, with a 30Hz RBW and 10kHz span, the 4396B has a sweep time of 400 ms, while swept tuned spectrum analyzers take a few tens of seconds. The stepped.
FFT can greatly improve the speeds of narrowband spectrum measurement such as frequency tuning of a VCO or CN measurements.
With Option 1D6, the 4396B offers time-gated spectrum analysis capability to capture and measure repetitive burst signals in video, disk drives, communication equipment and more. The minimum gate length is 2sec so that even narrow-burst signals can be analyzed.
A full-featured impedance measurement function (useful for quick check general-purpose impedance applications) can be added to the 4396B by adding Option 010 and the 43961A RF impedance test kit.
Covering from 100kHz to 1.8 GHz, impedance parameters are directly measured and displayed. The basic impedance accuracy (typical value) is 3% . The 43961A RF impedance test kit is designed for the 4396B and is required to utilize the features of Option 010. A 7 mm connector is mounted on this kit for easy connection to an appropriate impedance test fixture.
A wide variety of Agilent test fixtures can be used with the test kit, including the surface-mount-device fixtures.
