A service that ensures that test equipment is shipped as fast as possible to customers’ research and development and manufacturing lines, ready for immediate use, has been introduced by Agilent Technologies Inc.
Express configurations for the CXA/EXA signal analyzers and MXG signal generators to provide off-the-shelf delivery of the most popular test and measurement configurations.
Express configuration solutions are preconfigured, functionally identical versions of Agilent’s custom-configurable products. They offer the same specifications, upgradeability and remote instrument identification over SCPI as their custom counterparts. All instrument options are license-key enabled, ensuring even greater usability and ease of delivery.
The express configurations instruments today include:
- The MXG RF analog signal generator express configuration (100 kHz to 1, 3, or 6 GHz) is optimized for component design and production verification. It features scalable RF performance, high reliability, easy self maintenance and high power — all in two rack units (2RU) to maximize uptime and save rack space.
- The MXG MW analog signal generator express configuration (100 kHz to 20 GHz) is optimized for broadband component manufacturing. Its small size (2RU) uses less rack space. Excellent power and level accuracy make the MXG MW express configuration a reliable stimulus for driving high-power devices.
- The CXA signal analyzer express configuration (9 kHz to 3 or 7.5 GHz) features standards-based one-button measurements such as channel power, OBW and ACP. A versatile, low-cost tool for essential signal characterization, the CXA helps accelerate product testing and development on multiple levels: cost reduction, throughput, design enhancement and beyond.
- The EXA signal analyzer express configuration (9 kHz to 3.6, 7.0, 13.6 or 26.5 GHz) provides engineers with the fastest means of maximizing throughput on the production line and reducing overall testing costs. It operates with 10 MHz of analysis bandwidth and is up to 300 percent faster than other economy-class spectrum and signal analyzers.
The EXA, CXA and MXG express configuration products are now available through local Agilent distributors in North America, Canada, China and Taiwan.
