E5080B ENA Vector Network Analyzer

Data Sheets


As devices become highly integrated, complete characterization requires a complete RF and microwave measurement solution. The E5080B brings R&D performance up to 53 GHz and flexibility to a midrange platform. Best-in-class dynamic range, trace noise, and temperature stability guarantee reliability and repeatability. Test consistently across your entire workflow with the same UI and SCPI commands as high-end PNAs.

The E5080B enables complete device characterization for passive components, amplifiers, mixers, and frequency converters. You can perform more tests with one box with integrated features such as DC sources, bias tees, pulse generators, pulse modulators, and internal second source. Gain deeper insights with software applications including spectrum analysis, mixer measurements, and noise figure. Choose from a 2- or 4-port option with frequency coverage from 9 kHz up to 20 GHz or for higher frequencies, 100 kHz up to 53 GHz.

The E5080B utilizes the same measurement science as other Keysight vector network analyzers (VNAs) such as the PNA, PXI, and Streamline Series VNA. A common software platform makes it easy to choose the right level of performance to match budget and measurement needs. This commonality guarantees measurement consistency, repeatability, and a common remote-programming interface across multiple instruments in R&D and manufacturing.


Specification (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 90 minutes with VNA application running
  • Instrument is within its calibration cycle
  • Instrument remains at a stable surrounding environment temperature (between 0 °C to 40 °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.


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.

Dynamic Range

The specifications in this section apply to measurements made with the Keysight E5080B ENA Series vector network analyzer under the following conditions:

  • 10 Hz IF bandwidth
  • No averaging applied to data
  • Does not include crosstalk effects

Corrected System Performance

This section provides specifications for the corrected performance of the E5080B ENA Series VNA using either of 85032F, 85052D, 85058B Mechanical Calibration Kit or N4691D, N4694D Electronic Calibration (ECal) Module. To determine transmission and reflection uncertainty curves with other calibration kits, please download the Uncertainty Calculator from http://www.keysight.com/find/na_calculator to generate the curves for your specific calibration kit.

Measured with 10 Hz IF bandwidth, no averaging applied to data, environmental temperature = 23 °C (± 3 °C) with < 1 °C deviation from calibration temperature.
