The Agilent 8990B peak power analyzer is for use in peak power-pulse analysis for the aerospace, defense and wireless markets.
Complementing the 8990B are the N1923A and N1924A wideband power sensors, which cover a frequency range of 50 MHz to 18 GHz and 50 MHz to 40 GHz, respectively. When combined with either sensor, the 8990B peak power analyzer achieves 5 nanosecond rise time/fall time,
It is equipped with a 15-inch XGA color touchscreen that is capable of simultaneously displaying four channel results for more image detail. The sampling rate is 100 MSa/s, which will enable R&D engineers to get the resolution they need to detect abnormalities in a signal trace for design improvement.
The 8990B comes with 15 predefined pulse parameter measurements, including rise time, pulse droop, pulse width and time delay, which can be executed automatically in two easy steps via the touchscreen. These parameters are used in the design, testing and validation of power amplifiers, TR module, transponders, radar test sets and satellite payloads, and other test devices that require complex pulse measurement.
The Agilent 8990B peak power analyzer is priced at $28,500. The Agilent N1923A wideband power sensor (50 MHz to 18 GHz) and the Agilent N1924A wideband power sensor (50 MHz to 40 GHz) are $5,000 and $5,500, respectively.
