Agilent Technologies Introduces New 8990B Peak Power Analyzer with the Fastest Rise Time/Fall Time in the Peak Power-Measurement Market

Agilent Technologies Introduces New 8990B Peak Power Analyzer with the Fastest Rise Time/Fall Time in the Peak Power-Measurement Market


Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced the Agilent 8990B, a peak power analyzer that offers faster measurement speed and greater measurement accuracy in peak power-pulse analysis for the aerospace, defense and wireless markets.

Complementing the 8990B are the new N1923A and N1924A wideband power sensors, which cover a frequency range of 50 MHz to 18 GHz and 50 MHz to 40 GHz, respectively. When combined with either sensor, the 8990B peak power analyzer achieves 5 nanosecond rise time/fall time, the fastest overall rise time/fall time in the peak-power market, making the 8990B an excellent solution for RF pulse measurement and analysis.

Built for ease of use and high performance, the 8990B is equipped with a 15-inch XGA color touchscreen that is capable of simultaneously displaying four channel results for more image detail. And with the 8990B's sampling rate of 100 MSa/s, R&D engineers get the high resolution they need to detect abnormalities in a signal trace for design improvement.

The 8990B comes with 15 predefined pulse parameter measurements, including rise time, pulse droop, pulse width and time delay, which can be executed automatically in two easy steps via the touchscreen. These parameters are used in the design, testing and validation of power amplifiers, TR module, transponders, radar test sets and satellite payloads, and other test devices that require complex pulse measurement.

"The 8990B peak power analyzer sets a new standard in RF pulse measurement and analysis with better performance and a great overall user experience that considers the challenges users face today," said Ee Huei Sin, vice president, Agilent's Basic Instruments Division. "This product marks another milestone for Agilent in the power meter and power sensor portfolio."
