SANTA ROSA, Calif., May 30, 2019
Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: KEYS), a leading technology company that helps enterprises, service providers and governments accelerate innovation to connect and secure the world, today introduced a new phase noise measurement system for "power users", which enables them to optimize and prove performance of new designs, meet operational requirements, as well as remain on schedule and on budget.
Phase noise is an unwanted phase modulation noise that emerges in nearly all radio frequency and microwave devices including oscillators, mixers, dividers, multipliers and amplifiers. Power users, including professionals responsible for developing high-performance aerospace and defense applications as well as cutting-edge device characterization for 5G and other wireless communication systems, need to validate the phase noise performance of their designs.
Keysight's new N5511A Phase Noise Test System (PNTS) models are available in three frequency ranges - from 50 kHz and going up to 3, 26.5, or 40 GHz with offsets from .01 Hz to 160 MHz internally. It can be configured for either single or dual-channel operation and offers the following key technology features:
"In terms of radio frequency and microwave design, less phase noise means more performance, and the new Keysight N5511A PNTS can help customers achieve that performance," said Dan Dunn, vice president and general manager of Keysight's Aerospace Defense and Government Solutions Group. "Its flexible architecture lets customers integrate exceptional reference sources – theirs or ours – and confidently solve specific challenges faster."
The flexible and scalable architecture of Keysight's N5511A PNTS enables power users to:
Consisting of phase detector and data conversion modules housed in a custom, low-noise single PXIe mainframe four units (4U) high, the N5511A occupies minimal rack space. The system software included runs on an integrated PC controller using the Microsoft Windows 10 operating system.
Pricing and Availability
N5511A Phase Noise Test System is available now. Prices start at USD $135,000.
Keysight will demonstrate the N5511A Phase Noise Test System at the International Microwave Symposium 2019, Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, Stand 606, June 4 - 6.
