Agilent E5071C ENA RF Network Analyzers
highest performance, extended lower frequency range and fastest speed in its class, the Agilent ENA is the ideal solution for
manufacturing and R&D engineers evaluating RF components and circuits from 9 kHz to 8.5 GHz.
Agilent's E5071C ENA Series is an integrated 2- or 4-port, high-performance RF network analyzer that significantly reduces engineers'
cost of test through its ability to cover such a wide frequency range with a single instrument. The ENA provides exceptional performance
with industry-leading dynamic range, trace noise and fast measurement speed. Such functionality allows the Agilent ENA to address a broad array of component and circuit tests including EMC-related
applications and automotive, wireless communications, aerospace and defense, education, and medical applications.
Key Features and Specifications
- Frequency options are available: From 9 kHz/100 kHz (with bias tees) to 3 GHz/8.5 GHz
- Wide dynamic range: > 123 dB dynamic range at test port (typical)
- Fast measurement speed: 39 ms @ full 2-port cal, 1601 points
- Low trace noise: 0.004 dB rms @ 70 kHz IFBW
- Integrated 2- and 4-ports with balanced measurements
- Powerful analysis and error corrections
- Wide power sweep range of 65 dB provides easy and fast evaluation
Excellent measurement accuracy
The Agilent ENA dramatically improves measurement accuracy and responds to current and future test needs. Because of its wide
dynamic range of > 123 dB at 10 Hz IFBW, the sweep speed can be faster at the required dynamic range. The trace noise is lowered to
< 0.004 dBrms at 70 kHz IFBW. It delivers accurate pass band ripple measurement of a filter. The ENA’s excellent measurement
performance improves test quality and repeatability as well as test throughput, which affect production yield and the overall cost of
Expanded Dynamic Range
One of the specific features of Agilent's new ENA Series solution is an expanded dynamic range up to 6 GHz for improving the quality of
5 GHz-band wireless communications products such as WLAN and WiMAX. The 65-dB power sweep range helps simplify amplifier compression
evaluation and allows the user to make continuous measurements by sweeping source power levels between two significantly different
levels, both of which contribute to improved test efficiency and reliability.
Advanced multiport test set architecture
Built-in 2- and 4-test ports provide simultaneous measurement of all signal paths for components with up to 4-ports. This advanced
architecture minimizes the number of sweeps to complete a multiport S-parameter measurement and dramatically improves test throughput.
The ENA holds up to 36 measurement channels in a single instrument state. Independent frequency list, calibration data, measurement
parameters, trace layout, triggering and limit test are applied in each measurement channel, which acts as if it is an independent
network analyzer. This multi-channel capability eliminates recall time for sequencing multiple instrument setup states.
Multi-window layout displays all measurement channels
Measurement results require quick and clear observation, especially for multiport component test. The ENA can display up to 36
measurement channels simultaneously. For example, it is possible to use nine channels for a multiport device measurement as shown in
the following measurement example. In most cases, each of these measurement channels requires individual sweep list, number of points
(NOP), sweep type and test limits. The measurement result of all these channels needs to be displayed. The ENA provides flexible windows
layout and displays up to 361 windows in the large LCD display. Operators can easily select from predefined layouts using either soft
keys, pull down menus or SCPI/COM commands. It is easy to monitor all measurement results in a variety of layouts that help to achieve
increased test productivity.
