Agilent 8970B 10 MHz to 1600 MHz Noise Figure Meter
Type: Noise Figure Meter
With the HP 8970B noise figure meter, noise figure measurements are easy, accurate, and repeatable. Automatic second-stage correction makes accurate noise figure readings possible even for low-gain devices. The HP 8970B's dynamic range allows gain measurements of at least 40 dB (higher in some cases) or loss measurements to -20 dB, with no external attenuation or amplification.
The HP 8970B can store up to four Excess Noise Ratio (ENR) noise source calibration tables. It also properly interpolates ENR values at each measurement frequency. The HP 8970B takes the mystery out of noise figure measurements. It uses a microprocessor to make the calculation and corrections necessary for truly accurate, convenient, and flexible noise figure measurements. The meter also controls external local oscillators (such as the HP 8370 series synthesizers or the HP 8360 series synthesized sweepers) and the HP 8971C noise figure test set.
