Product description

The M9393A PXI performance VSA is a vector signal analyzer with frequency coverage up to 50 GHz. The standard configuration provides frequency coverage from 9 kHz to 8.4, 14, 18 or 27 GHz and includes four individual PXI modules — M9214A digitizer, M9308A synthesizer, M9365A downconverter and M9300A frequency reference. The extended frequency configuration can be used to provide frequency coverage from 3.6 to 50 GHz with the recommended addition of the M9169E switchable attenuator module. For more information on product options and configurations, see the configuration guide, literature number 5991-4580EN.
