Agilent Technologies claims that its instruments is the industry's first 42.98-GHz spectrum analyzer. Offering resolution bandwidths up to 8 MHz, the E4447A is aimed at microwave and millimeter applications, including satellite and emerging digital communications, pulsed signals, and 3G wireless systems. Combined with the company's 89601A vector signal analysis software, the E4447A can be used to evaluate and troubleshoot wireless and emerging communications formats.
Fifteen optional measurement personalities are available for the E4447A. Integrated into the analyzer, these application-specific firmware programs provide advanced measurement capability with one-button simplicity. With the push of a button, engineers can easily perform complex measurements like phase noise for oscillators, the noise figure of an amplifier, scalar network analysis for components, as well as digital modulation analysis on 2G to 3.5G signals. The E4447A Series spectrum analyzer is priced at $73,941 and is available now. Additional information is available at www.agilent.com/find/PSA
