Agilent Technologies announces a 42.98 GHz spectrum analyzer, which offers resolution bandwidths up to 8 MHz. The E4447A offers high-performance analysis for designers and production engineers of microwave and millimeter applications, including satellite and emerging digital communications, pulsed signals, and 3G wireless systems. Combined with the company’s 89601A vector signal analysis software, the E4447A is also suited for R&D engineers to evaluate and troubleshoot wireless and emerging communications formats. The E4447A PSA offers 0.62 dB ( 0.17 dB typical) amplitude accuracy at 1 GHz, with < 30 ms and low-level spur search to 42.98 GHz. The Agilent 89601A VSA software works with the E4447A and offers traditional RF spectrum displays; (I/Q) analysis up to 8 MHz; signal capture memory with recording and playback; RF and IF triggering; a wide variety of analog and digital demodulators; and an extensive set of time, frequency and modulation analysis tools.
