Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced a series of broadband microwave test accessories specifically optimised for communications and aerospace/defense applications.
The innovations embedded in this series provide broadband capability and enhanced measurement accuracy, which significantly expand the test and measurement capabilities in the communications and aerospace/defense industries.
Agilent’s new series of microwave test accessories is comprised of a 67 GHz DC block, a 67 GHz fixed attenuator, a 50 GHz power limiter, and 50 GHz absorptive PIN diode SPDT and SP4T solid state switches.
N9398G DC Block provides good RF performance up to 67GHz with greater than 15 dB return loss, 1 dB insertion loss and good temperature stability. This increases measurement accuracy while suppressing DC signals that can often times damage test instrumentation.
Agilent 8490G precision fixed attenuator exhibits good attenuation accuracy and a low standing-wave-ratio of 1.45 GHz up to 67GHz. Agilent 8490G precision fixed attenuator comes with six attenuation options: 3, 6, 10, 20, 30 and 40 dB.
The Agilent N9355F power limiter provides broadband input protection from excess RF power, DC transients, electrostatic discharge and accidental power overloads for a variety of RF and microwave instruments and components. The Agilent N9355F has an integrated DC block at both input and output ports to block signals below 10 MHz and pass signals up to 50 GHz.
