Streamline Series Vector Network Analyzer (A-models)

Data Sheets

Introduction

The freedom of portable network analysis doesn’t have to mean a compromise in performance. The P50xxA Series brings high-end performance and flexibility to the portable Keysight Streamline Series. Gain confidence in your measurements with best-in-class performance offering fast, reliable, and repeatable results. Explore the complete characterization of your devices with a rich portfolio of software applications that transform the compact network analyzer into a complete RF measurement solution.

The P50xxA Series, a member of Keysight’s Streamline Series offers the performance required for testing passive components, amplifiers, mixers or frequency converters. The vector network analyzer (VNA) provides best-in-class key specifications such as dynamic range, measurement speed, trace noise and temperature stability. Choose from 2- or 4-port models up to 53 GHz, or 2-, 4- or 6-port models up to 20 GHz. The VNA is packaged in a compact chassis and controlled by an external computer with powerful data processing capabilities and functionalities.

Definition

Specifications (spec) 1

Warranted performance. Specifications include guardbands to account for the expected statistical performance distribution, measurement uncertainties, and changes in performance due to environmental conditions. All specifications and characteristics apply over a 25 °C ± 5 °C (unless otherwise stated).

The following conditions must be met:

  • Instrument has been turned on for 60 minutes with VNA application running.
  • Instrument is within its calibration cycle.
  • Instrument remains at a stable surrounding environment temperature (between -10 °C to 55 °C) for 60 minutes prior to turn-on.

 

Characteristics (char.)

A performance parameter that the product is expected to meet before it leaves the factory, but that is not verified in the field and is not covered by the product warranty. A characteristic includes the same guardbands as a specification.

Typical (typ.)

Expected performance of an average unit at a stable temperature between 25 °C ± 5 °C for 60 minutes prior to turn-on and during operation; does not include guardbands. It is not covered by the product warranty. The instrument must be within its calibration cycle.

Nominal (nom.)

A general, descriptive term or design parameter. It is not tested, and not covered by the product warranty.

Supplemental Information

A performance parameter that is tested on sampled product during design validation. It does not include guardbands and is not covered by the product warranty.

Calibration

The process of measuring known standards to characterize an instrument's systematic (repeatable) errors.

Corrected (residual)

Indicates performance after error correction (calibration). It is determined by the quality of calibration standards and how well "known" they are, plus system repeatability, stability, and noise.

Uncorrected (raw)

Indicates instrument performance without error correction. The uncorrected performance affects the stability of a calibration.
