Keysight in a statement said that its E5080A ENA vector network analyzer offers a combination of RF measurement performance and speed because the new ENA uses the Keysight PNA- and PXI-Series software architecture. This apart, the ENA also offers a large color touchscreen display with fast access to basic measurements.

Setting the new standard in RF component testing for R&D and manufacturing environments, the E5080A offers comprehensive functionalities for measuring active and passive components such as amplifiers, mixers, antennas and cables, including balanced DUTs, said Keysight.

Compared to the E5071C ENA, the E5080A offers performance advantages including more than 10 dB wider dynamic range (typically 147 dB) and up to 10 times faster measurement speed in real-world test scenarios. These enhancements improve precision and throughput in the testing of RF components such as filters with deep rejection bands.

“The E5080A provides the capability and performance needed to characterize the RF components used in 4G and next-generation smartphones, tablets and base transceiver stations,” said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Component Test Division.
