The Agilent N5230A / HP N5230A 4-port PNA-L vector network analyzer provides the best combination of speed and accuracy for measuring multi-port and balanced components such as filters, duplexers and RF modules up to 20 GHz. The N5230A’s automatic port extension feature automatically measures and corrects for fixtures, making measurements of in-fixture devices simple and accurate. The configurable test set provides access to the signal path between the internal source and the analyzer’s test ports. This option provides the capability to improve instrument sensitivity for measuring low-level signals, to reverse the directional coupler to achieve even more dynamic range or to add components or other peripheral instruments for a variety of applications such as high-power measurements. The extended power range adds a 60 dB step attenuator internally to the RF source path. This attenuator extends the source output power range to over 80 dB, allowing for maximum flexibility when stimulating the device under test.
