S95083B Vector and Scalar Mixer / Converter Measurements
Provides fully calibrated conversion gain / loss, relative phase, and absolute group delay measurements of mixers and converters without the need for reference or calibration mixers.
The Keysight S95083B measurement software includes the scalar mixer / converter plus phase (SMC+Phase) measurement class. It provides fully calibrated conversion gain / loss, relative phase, and absolute group delay measurements of mixers and converters without the need for reference or calibration mixers. Eliminating the calibration mixer requires a U9391C / F / G comb generator and an external DC power supply. A vector mixer characterization (VMC) is also included for measuring group delay of frequency-converting devices. VMC can be used to characterize a user-supplied calibration mixer.
S95083B provides an intuitive and easy-to-use user interface for setting up mixer and converter measurements, with single or dual conversion stages. It controls the analyzer’s built-in source(s), as well as external signal generators for use as local oscillator (LO) signals.
S95083B measurement software is a superset of S95082B software, so they should not be installed together. S95083B software is compatible with S95084B software, which enables measurements of converters with internal LOs.
Key converter measurements:
- Get fully calibrated measurements of conversion loss / gain plus phase and group delay, with swept or fixed input and output frequencies and input and LO power.
- SMC+Phase offers measurements of deviation from linear phase and absolute group delay without a reference mixer.
- VMC adds a function for measuring group delay of frequency converting devices.
- Measure converters with fully embedded local oscillators with S95084B.
- Power-meter-based calibration provides high accuracy for conversion gain or loss.
- SMC+Phase comb generator-based calibration eliminates the need for calibration mixers.
Easy to set up and use:
- Intuitive tab-based user interface makes it easy to configure measurements.
- Calibration wizard guides the user through the calibration process.
- Application controls external signal generators and power meters.
