Agilent Technologies Inc. released what it claims is the first dual-channel PXI vector signal analyzer that delivers high-bandwidth, independently tuned, two-channel, continuous data capture. The solution works either the lab or in real-world environments.
This product is a new configuration of Agilent’s M9392A analyzer, aimed at helping R&D and test engineers detect and identify sources of RF interference – “even in dense urban environments where many unwanted signals may be present,” Agilent says.
Here’s more: The dual-channel 250 megahertz of analysis bandwidth, 26.5-GHz frequency coverage on two channels, and continuous streaming to 100 megahertz of bandwidth. Both channels can be housed in an 18-slot, 4U PXIe chassis.
Engineers can use the dual-channel PXI vector signal analyzer to perform continuous data capture, either directly to an embedded or external controller for data capture of a few seconds, or to a RAID for data capture lasting from several minutes to more than six hours, depending on the storage capacity of the RAID and the desired measurement bandwidth.
Agilent also says this solution can be used in combination with Agilent Command Expert, a free software application that combines instrument command sets, documentation, syntax checking and command execution in a single interface.
Pricing information: The dual-channel PXI vector signal analyzer is available in a single-channel configuration for $66,235 and a dual-channel configuration for $132,470; chassis, controller and 89600 VSA software are price separately.
