Agilent Technologies  has introduced a compact network analyser, the Agilent E5061B, that analyzes a frequency range as low as 5 Hz up to the RF (radio frequency) range of 3 GHz. This network analyser's broad range and versatility eliminates the need for additional low-frequency-dedicated instruments.

Applications for the Agilent E5061B, part of the ENA series of network analysers, include general RF-network measurements, such as filters or amplifier tests, and LF (low frequency) measurements necessary for loop-gain evaluation of DC-DC converters. The E5061B's frequency coverage is suitable for power distribution networks (PDN) measurements, which evaluate the quality of a DC power supply circuit. This type of evaluation is increasingly important, especially in high-speed digital communication equipment.

Features of the Agilent E5061B include: 

  • S-parameter test port, 5 Hz to 3 GHz, with a wide dynamic range of 120 dB at > 1MHz, 90 dB at < 100 Hz; 
  • gain-phase test port, 5 Hz to 30 MHz, switchable 1 MO/50 O input; 
  • compact form factor with a 254-mm depth, requiring less desktop space. 
  • 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
Agilent's ENA Series addresses a broad array of component and circuit tests, including EMC-related applications and automotive, wireless communications, aerospace and defense, education and medical applications.

The series includes:

  • Agilent E5071C network analysers (9 kHz to 8.5 GHz /300 kHz to 20 GHz)
  • Agilent E5061A/62A network analysers (300 kHz to 1.5/3.0 GHz)
  • Agilent E5061B network analysers
Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Component Test Division, Kobe said, "The new E5061B represents an extension of a recognized industry standard in RF network analysis capabilities from Agilent. 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 analyser that meets a variety of network measurements."
