Key Features & Specifications

  • The following features apply to a complete balanced-measurement system:
  • Display conventional (single-ended) and mixed mode S-parameters
  • Re-normalize test data for non-50-ohm devices
  • Achieve high measurement accuracy with full four-port vector error correction
  • Perform fast, accurate, automatic calibrations with easy to use N4431A four-port electronic calibration (ECal) module
  • Calculate important parameters with powerful user-defined displays
  • Gain additional insight with time domain analysis option

Description

The Keysight N4417A S-parameter test set is a key component of a Keysight physical layer and balanced-measurement system. When combined with a Keysight PNA Series E8356A, E8357A, E8358A Option 015 or E8801A, E8802A, E8803A Option 014 vector network analyzer and an external PC equipped with an IEEE-488 GPIB card, this test set makes characterizing high-speed digital interconnects as well as, fully balanced or balanced-to-single-ended RF components much easier.

The N4417A S-parameter test set requires the N4425A Balanced Measurement System software or the N1930A Physical Layer Test System software for control of the 4-port VNA system, calibration, and data display and analysis.

Please note, this test set is not subject to a calibration test. The test set’s performance characteristics are parameters that the product is expected to meet before it leaves the factory. A functional test can verify proper performance of all microwave components within the test set.
