Power Meters Provide Wide Bandwidth

The P-Series power meters offer users a frequency measurement range up to 40 GHz with continuous sampling, calibration-free measurements, and backward compatibility with the 8480 and E-Series power sensors. The meters deliver a sampling rate of 100 Msamples/s and a video bandwidth of 30 MHz. Continuos sampling capability means that multiple measurements of peak power and rise time, under the same conditions, provide identical results. Said to be a first, calibration-free power measurements are made possible by integrating a dc reference source and switching circuits into the power sensor, allowing the sensor to be calibrated while connected to the device under test. Compatibility with the 8480 and E-series power sensors provides additional choices for conventional average power measurements over a frequency range from 9 kHz to 110 GHz. The meters are available with one or two channels, priced at $7,075 and $9,975, respectively. AGILENT TECHNOLOGIES INC., Palo Alto, CA. (800) 235-0312.
