Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today introduced five new PNA-L
vector network analyzer models, offering design and manufacturing
engineers the highest performance (up to 50 GHz) in a mid-range VNA,
along with lower cost and future-proof capabilities.
Agilent’s new N523xA PNA-L vector network analyzers replace existing
N5230C models. They are available in five frequency models. Three
frequency models start at 300 kHz, with two or four ports available for
the 13.5- and 20-GHz models, and two ports available for the 8.5-GHz
product. The other two frequency models, with two ports, start at 10 GHz
and include the 43.5- and 50-GHz products.
The models feature both increased measurement range (5 dBm more output
power and 20 dB more dynamic range) and speed (the result of a new
synthesizer with faster frequency switching). They also offer an
improved user interface with a 24 percent bigger display. Because the
models are 100 percent compatible with the N5230C PNA-L, no changes to
the user’s current test setup are required.
The new PNA-L models use the Agilent PNA-X’s innovative components,
including the CPU and display. Sharing a common hardware platform allows
the PNA-L to realize continuous performance improvements as the PNA-X
hardware improves. Moreover, PNA-L models can run applications
previously only offered on the PNA-X platform, such as gain compression
and fast continuous wave mode.
Providing a lower price alternative to the Agilent PNA and PNA-X network
analyzers, the new PNA-L models are well suited for a range of
applications, including S-parameters of passive components and simple
active device measurements of amplifier and frequency converters. They
can also be used in material measurements and for signal-integrity
The Agilent PNA-L is part of the PNA family of network analyzers. The PNA
family includes the PNA-L, PNA and PNA-X Series, covering
frequencies from 300 kHz to 1.05 THz. The PNA-L is designed for
general-purpose network analysis; the PNA is the world’s highest
performing vector network analyzer; and the PNA-X provides complete
linear and nonlinear component characterization in a single instrument
with a single connection. The PNA family offers advanced connectivity
via LAN, USB and GPIB; an easy-to-use open architecture based on the
Microsoft Windows® operating system; and an extensive embedded help
system. The PNA family’s CPU and operating system can be upgraded as
