Key Features & Specifications


  • Analyze wideband signals (5G, WiGig, automotive radar) at millimeter wave
  • Simple and integrated mixer control and correction
  • Lower-cost E-band analysis capability


  • mmW modulation bandwidth up to 2.5 GHz
  • 55/60 GHz to 90 GHz E-band frequency range coverage
  • Baseband / IF analysis frequency range coverage up to 33 GHz

Measurement applications and software

  • 89601B vector signal analysis software provides demodulation and insight into transmitter performance
  • N8838A external mixer assistant provides easy measurement setup for control and correction of the M1971E mixer


Keysight oscilloscopes’ excellent signal integrity translates to exceptional RF performance. The N8838A external mixer assistant software enables the M1971E waveguide harmonic mixer to operate as a seamless millimeter wave front end to down convert 55/60 to 90 GHz signals to the scope for analysis with the 89600 VSA software. The simple user interface paired with the 10-bit ADC of the Infiniium S-Series oscilloscope allows for high-quality measurements for wideband signals (5G, 802.11ad, automotive radar, etc.).
