Berkeley Nucleonics has enhanced the 7000 series of fully automated signal source analyzers and extended the measurement capability to 26 GHz. In addition to measuring absolute phase noise on a large variety of CW sources with offsets from 0.01 Hz to 50 MHz, the 7000 series performs residual and absolute phase noise characterization of CW and pulsed signals, transient analysis and VCO characterization.
High speed measurement modes are optimized for automated testing, making the 7000 series a very versatile signal source analyzer for both R&D and production testing. The instrument is simple to use and offers high accuracy and reproducibility combined with measurement speed. It has a high dynamic range with low system noise floors, while offering an attractive cost for labs and production environments.
Two models are available that are application dependent: Model 7070 covers 5 MHz to 7 GHz and Model 7300 covers 5 MHz to 26 GHz. The instruments are Ethernet, USB or GPIB controlled and “plug and play” with any standard computer.
The entire instrument is enclosed in a compact, fanless, 3U, 19 inch chassis and weighs 10 kg.
