The E-Band signal analysis reference provides a powerful test platform for analyzing emerging communication standards operating at millimeter wave frequencies. Two-channel capability allows for testing of multichannel devices; different antenna polarizations simultaneously; and channel sounding measurements.
The reference is made up of a combination of hardware instruments and software. The latest N8838A external mixer assistant software enables the S-Series oscilloscope to control the N5183B MXG X-Series microwave signal generator and the M1971E waveguide smart mixer. Also with the 89601B vector signal analysis software, engineers can make insightful measurements for complex signal analysis. This makes it simple to get accurate, calibrated measurements on E-band signals.
According to Dave Cipriani, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s oscilloscope business, the refermec is low-cost, simple-to-use and maintains high performance making it ideal for customers addressing applications such as 5G, WiGig, automotive radar and millimeter wave backhaul.
