Reach for Unrivaled Excellence

Keysight's PNA-X is more than just a vector network analyzer. It is the world’s most integrated and flexible microwave test engine for measuring amplifiers, mixers, frequency converters, and other active devices. The hardware includes two internal signal sources, a signal combiner, S-parameter and noise receivers, pulse modulators and generators, and a flexible set of switches and RF access points. These hardware features provide a powerful core for a broad range of linear and nonlinear measurements, all with a single set of connections to your device under test.

  • Simplify your test system by replacing an entire rack of equipment with one PNA-X network analyzer.
  • Reduce test time with the widest range of single-connection measurement applications.
  • Accurately test linear and nonlinear device characterization using advanced error correction.
  • Choose from the industry's widest range of measurement applications for speed, accuracy, and ease of use in advanced RF test.
  • Accelerate insight into component behavior using a multitouch display and intuitive user interface.






The Custom Power Behind Our Instruments

Pushing the boundaries of technology requires instantaneous bandwidth, spurious-free dynamic range, and signal fidelity beyond basic measurements. Keysight powers every performance product with custom MMICs, designed in-house, manufactured in our proprietary indium phosphide (InP) and gallium arsenide (GaAs) fab with custom ASIC signal processing that ensure the industry’s fastest, most reliable measurements. Count on Keysight to accelerate your next innovation. The PNA-X is more than just a vector network analyzer--it's the world's most integrated and flexible microwave test engine. In the PNA-X, Keysight semiconductors enable innovative source-per-port architecture for fast measurement speed with excellent power, phase noise, and measurement stability per port.

Design and Test a Phased Array Antenna

Discover the fundamental principles behind phased array antenna design and testing, including measurement techniques and calibration. Learn how the Keysight phased array test solution integrates and synchronizes digital control of the PNA-X vector network analyzer, VXG-C vector signal generator, and a compact antenna test range (CATR) to deliver fast, fully automated measurements.

Replace Racks

With its highly integrated and versatile hardware and reconfigurable measurement paths, the PNA-X replaces racks and stacks of equipment — with a single instrument. One PNA-X can take the place of the following test gear:

  • network analyzer
  • spectrum analyzer
  • two signal sources
  • noise figure meter / analyzer
  • power meters
  • switch matrix
  • digital voltmeter
