High Performance Noise Figure Measurement

The noise figure analyzer is a dedicated solution to perfom noise figure measurement. A noise figure analyzer, in its most basic form, consists of a receiver with an accurate power detector and a circuit to power the noise source.

The high performance Keysight NFA X-Series noise figure analyzers have variable bandwidths to facilitate measurement of narrow-band devices, as do spectrum analyzer-based measurement systems.

Easy Noise Figure Measurement Setup

The NFA series of Noise Figure Analyzers now takes the pain out of complex measurement setups, with their simple but instructive menus. The built-in help button gives key function and remote programming commands, that should eliminate the need to carry manuals when setting up measurements.

Low Noise Figure Measuring Instrumentation Uncertainty

When making noise figure measurements, a key parameter to be aware of is measurement uncertainty. The NFA has a low instrumentation uncertainty to aid in accurate and repeatable measurement of manufacturers’ components.

Increase Measurement Throughput

In manufacturing environments, fast measurement speed and repeatability are critical. The NFA series of Noise Figure Analyzers now include many features that can reduce your measurement time and increase throughput such as frequency list and sweep averaging function.
