The Agilent E5052B Signal Source Analyzer with the Revision 3.1 firmware update is used for traditional high-quality phase-noise measurements such as VCO evaluation and PLL testing, jitter measurements and signal source analysis. An automatic PN measurement setting for RF attenuation and IF gain simplifies the E5052B's operation, making it more efficient and enabling the best measurement conditions. The analyzer's operation is further simplified thanks to a new context-sensitive online help menu that provides users with easier, more intuitive instrument help.
Another key feature of the Revision 3.1 firmware update is the Equation Editor function. Added as a means to extend the E5052B's Trace Math capabilities, it provides an easier, more flexible way for users to make their own applications with post-processing of measured data or traces.
The Agilent E5052B 10 MHz to 7 GHz signal source analyzer features the world's highest measurement throughput and best usability in characterizing VCO or other types of high frequency signal sources, as well as clock jitter evaluation in high-speed data communication systems. Coupled with the world's fastest phase-noise performance, these features make the Agilent E5052B the ideal choice for designers and manufacturers of multi-Gbps data communication systems, signal source modules, signal generators, and systems used in the aerospace/defense, component, wireless and wireline markets.
