Signal Analyzer for Signals from 10 Hz to 50 GHz

Keysight N9021B06 March 2020 - Keysight Technologies launched the Keysight N9021B MXA X-Series Signal Analyzer which provides design validation and manufacturing engineers with superior phase noise performance at higher frequencies, and includes software that improves workflows while meeting 3GPP 5G new radio (NR) compliance standards.

The new Keysight N9021B MXA X-Series Signal Analyzer offers an enhanced frequency sweep algorithm, accelerating test time improvements with uncompromising performance. It provides radio frequency (RF) and millimeter-wave (mmWave) analysis to address the needs of engineers designing and delivering high-frequency new-generation wireless devices, including:

  • Advancing wireless and satellite communications design verification and manufacturing with the widest analysis bandwidth in its class and superior phase noise performance at high frequencies
  • Eliminating the complexity of challenging signals by combining real-time spectrum analyzer (RTSA) with Keysight's PathWave 89600 VSA software
  • Capturing measurement expertise and delivering repeatable results with industry-proven PathWave X-Series Measurement Applications
  • Maximizing the flexibility of test assets with a wide variety of PathWave X-Series Applications offering licensing terms that enable application sharing between X-Series signal analyzers and PXIe instruments

"Engineers need a test and measurement solution that addresses the signal analysis needs for a diverse set of wireless devices and systems, and provides the performance required to make rapid, accurate and repeatable measurements across both RF and mmWave frequencies," stated Joe Rickert, vice president and general manager of high frequency measurement R&D for Keysight's communications solutions group. "Keysight's new MXA X-Series Signal Analyzer enables these engineers to overcome the challenges in identifying signals at higher frequencies and offers wider bandwidth to meet a breadth of wireless application test requirements."

The new N9021B MXA X-Series Signal Analyzer offers the following key features:

  • Frequency range of 10 Hz – 50 GHz meeting specification requirements for both 5G NR FR1 and FR2
  • Signal detection with extended analysis bandwidth up to 510 MHz and better than 72 dB spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR)
  • Best-in-class RF performance with a single sideband (SSB) phase noise -129 dBc/Hz (1 GHz, 10 kHz offset) for better EVM measurements (5G NR EVM less than 1%)
  • Full-band real-time spectrum analysis (RTSA) to capture elusive or transient signals
  • Fast, accurate signal and spectrum measurements to increase throughput and yield while minimizing cost in 5G manufacturing

Pricing and availability

Keysight's N9021B MXG X-Series Signal Analyzer is available now at a starting price of US $ 105,220.00
