PNA and PNA-X network analyzers contain low-spurious direct digital synthesis source, enabling accurate measurements with less phase noise interference.
With clean source signals, customers can perform two-tone IMD measurements with close tone spacing. DDS sources enhance performance of software applications, including modulation distortion, SMC with phase, and I/Q converter measurements to provide speed in mixer/frequency converter characterization. Offering a third radio frequency source up to 13.5GHz on PNA-X simplifies measurement setup by taking place of external signal generator to drive local oscillators. PNA and PNA-X (integrated and flexible single-connection microwave test engine for measuring active devices) provide simplified test stations by replacing racks and stacks of equipment; reduced test time with range of single-connection measurement applications; accurate linear and nonlinear device characterization using advanced error correction; accelerated insight into component behavior using multi-touch display and intuitive user interface.
