Agilent Technologies has introduced the E5072A vector network analyser. Available as either a two-port 30-kHz to 4.5-GHz or 8.5-GHz instrument, it offers improved performance over current RF network analysers, enhanced functionality, a configurable test set and a wide output power level for full characterisation of devices.

Such capabilities make it ideal for RF antenna test as well as high-power, power amplifier and high-rejection filter measurements. Available with a sweep time of 4 ms with 401 points, the E5072A is designed for cost-sensitive manufacturing customers requiring higher performance than comparably priced RF network analysers. It addresses this need by delivering enhanced capability and performance at an affordable cost.
