Agilent Technologies introduced the M9391A, a 1-MHz to 3- or 6-GHz PXIe vector signal analyzer, with up to 160-MHz bandwidth designed to test the latest wireless standards. Used in combination with Agilent's modular X-series applications, the M9391A delivers a consistent user interface, common measurement consistency, and backward-compatible APIs to accelerate test development and throughput, the company says.
The M9391A is a complementary product to the M9381A PXIe VSG for testing and design validation of wireless power amplifiers, transceivers and cellular base stations, primarily picocell and femtocell. It features Fastune technology that enables improved servo-loop test times through rapid frequency and amplitude adjustments.
"The new PXIe vector signal analyzer has impressed customers with its easy programmability and seamless integration into their existing test systems," said Mario Narduzzi, modular solutions marketing manager of Agilent's Software and Modular Solutions Division. "Once they witness this significant increase in overall test throughput for power amplifier manufacturing test applications, this solution is an obvious choice."
Engineers can use the M9391A PXIe VSA with the M9381A and modular X-Apps to test wideband power amplifiers, front-end modules, transceivers and more. The PXI VSA comes with 40-MHz RF bandwidth and can be upgraded to 100- or 160-MHz bandwidth.
