Keysight N5242A PNA-X 2 Port Microwave Network Analyzer

Manufacturer: Keysight
Model Number: N5242A-2
World´s widest range of single-connection measurement applications. The Keysight PNA-X network analyzer is the world´s most integrated and flexible single-connection microwave test engine for measuring active devices such as amplifiers, mixers, and frequency converters. You can choose from five frequency models to meet your specific device test needs: 8.5 (N5249A) 13.5 (N5241A), 26.5 (N5242A), 43.5 (N5244A), 50 (N5245A), and 67 GHz (N5247A). The PNA-X provides unrivaled configurability with a built-in second source, combiner, and internal signal-routing switches. Replace racks and stacks. Reduce your equipment count by replacing racks and stacks of equipment with the PNA-X. Applications: S-parameters (CW and pulsed), Noise figure, Gain compression, Intermodulation and harmonic distortion, Conversion gain/loss, True-differential stimulus, Millimeter-wave, Nonlinear waveform and X-parameter* characterization, Antenna test
