Signal Analyzer Offers 50-GHz Bandwidth, Covers 5G NR Compliance Requirements

March 21, 2020
With superior phase noise at higher frequencies, Keysight’s latest signal analyzer improves workflows for validation and manufacturing engineers of 5G radios.

Sporting superior phase noise at higher frequencies, Keysight Technologies’ N9021B MXA X-Series signal analyzer 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.

Industries from wireless to satellite communications require wider analysis bandwidth to meet demands for higher data throughput. As higher-bandwidth technologies such as 5G NR become mainstream, engineers need tools for design validation and manufacturing that offer the accuracy, speed, and bandwidth to accelerate device development.

Keysight’s new signal analyzer offers an enhanced frequency-sweep algorithm for swifter test times. It performs RF and millimeter-wave analysis to address the needs of engineers designing and delivering high-frequency new-generation wireless devices.

The N9021B signal analyzer delivers a number of key capabilities; one of those is taming complex signals by combining real-time spectrum analysis with the company's PathWave 89600 vector signal-analysis software. It also captures measurement expertise and delivers repeatable results with PathWave X-Series measurement applications. Flexibility of test assets are maximized through licensing terms that enable application sharing between X-Series analyzers and PXIe instruments.

Some of the banner specs for the instrument in N9021B MXA X-Series Signal Analyzer offers the following key features:

  • Frequency range of 10 Hz to 50 GHz, meeting the 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)
  • Single-sideband (SSB) phase noise of -129 dBc/Hz (1 GHz, 10 kHz offset) for accurate EVM measurements (5G NR EVM less than 1%)

Keysight's N9021B MXA X-Series signal analyzer is available now starting at $105,220.00.
