Noise Figure FAQ for Network Analyzers
Frequently asked questions about the PNA-X Series Source-Corrected Noise Figure Measurement (Option 029)

FAQ 2020-01-09

What is Keysight's Windows 7 to Windows 10 Migration Schedule?
We are beginning the transition of our Windows based instruments from Windows Embedded Standard 7 to Windows 10 IoT Enterprise. Click on the link for additional information.

FAQ 2019-08-28

PNA Manual, Firmware, Upgrades, and Support
PNA-L, PNA, and PNA-X Manual, firmware, software, upgrade, and support information. Also available are PNA software utilities, and calibration kit and verification kit data.

FAQ 2017-08-29

Does the noise figure application on the PNA-X (option 029) provide a full noise-parameter system (tuners and software)?
No, we don’t provide a full noise-parameter system. Click on the question for additional information.

FAQ 2017-06-28

Can the PNA-X support SSLT or SSST calibration techniques?
Yes; however, the Cal Kit must be defined properly to work. The Cal can be modified via Advanced Modify Cal Kit for Definitions under the Calibration menu.

FAQ 2017-06-28

What is the difference between the Integrated true-mode stimulus application (opt 460) and the Differential and I/Q devices application (opt 089)?
The Integrated TMSA and the DIQ both simplify measurements of differential (balanced) devices. The two applications however, are used for different measurements. Click on the question for additional information.

FAQ 2017-06-28

How do I measure a pulsed RF signal output with a sampling oscilloscope?
There are two possible ways. Click on the question for additional information.

FAQ 2017-06-28

Can antivirus programs run on the Windows based PNA-X?
Yes, antivirus programs can run on any Windows based machine.

FAQ 2017-06-28

When using the DIQ application, what happens when I set the internal receiver to measure beyond the frequency range of my instrument?
Data for frequencies beyond the instrument hardware limitations is extrapolated from the hardware’s maximum and minimum limits. Click on the question for additional information.

FAQ 2017-06-28

Can the PNA-X be configured to install Windows updates as they are pushed out by Microsoft?
Yes, any Windows based machine can be configured to install Windows updates.

FAQ 2017-06-28

Which PNA / ENA remote interfaces support use of the Keysight cXL code translator?
On the PNA and ENA vector network analyzers, the Keysight cXL code translator is supported and operational only via the GPIB interface.

FAQ 2016-01-27

When automating markers on the ENA is it possible to programmatically query the indicated inductance or capacitance on a Smith Chart?
The inductance / capacitance information cannot be directly queried via the automation interfaces. The inductance (positive reactance, top half of the Smith Chart) or capacitance (negative reactance, lower half of the Smith Chart) is not available as an automation query.

FAQ 2014-08-11

On the PNA Vector Network Analyzer Family Is it possible to save a Touchstone (SnP) file with unwrapped phase?
Yes. The PNA Family of Vector Network Analyzers can save Touchstone (SnP) files with the phase information as unwrapped phase. To achieve unwrapped phase in a Touchstone file save perform the following...

FAQ 2013-07-29

What acoustical characteristics do the Keysight PNA, PNA-L, and PNA-X meet?
The Keysight PNA, PNA-L, and PNA-X models meet the Keysight Quiet office/lab/test space sound pressure and sound power specification when ventilation input temperature is below +28 degrees C.

FAQ 2012-06-14

How is trace math implemented within the Keysight Technologies Vector Network Analyzers?

FAQ 2012-01-11

How can I calculate the equivalent phase delay, as a function of frequency, for a given electrical delay as set on Vector Network Analyzer?
Equivalent phase delay, based upon electrical delay is computed as: θ˚ = Ftest * Delay * 360

FAQ 2011-10-07

Is it possible to configure the Keysight PNA families of network analyzers to display a time domain transformed trace as impedance versus time or di...
The PNA family can display the time domain transformed response as impedance. However, the required use of the equation editor negates the availability of a display directly in time or distance.

FAQ 2010-06-24

My Keysight PNA Family Network Analyzer no longer recognizes the external multiport test set. How do I fix this anomaly?

FAQ 2009-08-21

How do I protect my PNA-X in the presence of power-line transients or noise?
Protect your PNA-X from power-line transients or noise by installing a surge protector or, for severe power-line problems, a power conditoner. These devices will also prevent the PNA-X from rebooting when a power-line transient is encountered.
