Keysight 8971C Highlights
The Keysight 8971C noise figure test set allows the 8970B to make noise figure measurements over an extended frequency range. Careful design and high-performance components, including a stable YIG filter, allow broadband single-sideband measurements from 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz with a single calibration and sweep. A low-noise preamplifier built into the noise figure test set lowers the second-stage noise figure, thereby reducing a major source of measurement uncertainty. Measurement modes in the 8970B allow for double down-conversion using the 8971C as the second downconverter.
- Simultaneous gain and noise figure measurements for amplifier characterization
- Easy to compensate for tuner insertion loss for transistor characterization
- Only for use with the 8970B (cannot be used with the NFA series)
- Opt 001=L.O. Power Amplifier
