 5 Hz to 3 GHz network analyzer from Agilent for power distribution measurements

Agilent has introduced the E5061B, a compact network analyzer that analyzes a frequency range of 5 Hz up to the RF (radio frequency) range of 3 GHz. The E5061B is a part of the ENA series of network analyzers includes general RF-network measurements such as filters or amplifier tests, and low frequency measurements for loop-gain evaluation of DC-DC converters. The E5061B's frequency coverage is suitable for power distribution networks (PDN) measurements for DC power supply circuit. This type of evaluation is increasingly important, especially in high-speed digital communication equipment.

The key features of the E5061B are,

S-parameter test port: 5 Hz to 3 GHz of frequency, with a dynamic range of 120 dB at > 1MHz, 90 dB at < 100 Hz.
Gain-phase test port: 5 Hz to 30 MHz of frequency, switchable 1 MO/50 O input
Built-in DC bias source from 0 to ±40 Vdc, which can be added to AC test signal (for both S-parameter and gain-phase test port) or can be used as a sweepable DC source
Compact form factor with a 254-mm depth, requiring less desktop space.

"The new E5061B represents an extension of a recognized industry standard in RF network analysis capabilities from Agilent," said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Component Test Division, Kobe. "Delivering the excellent RF performance that is common to the ENA series, the E5061B also offers accurate LF measurement capability. It's the ideal, general-purpose LF-to-RF network analyzer that meets a variety of network measurements."

Agilent says, its ENA series addresses a component and circuit tests, including EMC-related applications and automotive, wireless communications, aerospace and defense, education and medical applications. The series includes the Agilent E5071C (9 kHz to 8.5 GHz /300 kHz to 20 GHz), the Agilent E5061A/62A (300 kHz to 1.5/3.0 GHz) and now the Agilent E5061B, expanding coverage to LF measurement requirements down to 5 Hz.
