The Holzworth HA7062D Real-Time Phase Noise Analyzer is born from the company’s history of industry leading phase noise analyzers with proven accuracy, high-reliability, automation and flexibility. The real-time engine covers the full measurement bandwidth with extremely fast measurement speeds to reduce product development time and optimizes ATE manufacturing throughput.
The HA7062D base model operates from 10 MHz to 26 GHz with a frequency extension available to 40 GHz. The RF input measurement level ranges from −5 to +20 dBm. For phase noise measurements, RF tracking range is typically ±10 ppm, offset frequency ranges from 0.1 Hz to 100 MHz and the phase noise uncertainty is ±4 dB from 1 Hz to 10 Hz, ±3 dB from 10 Hz to 1 kHz and ±2 dB from 1 kHz to 100 MHz.
While many companies provide a measurement confidence factor, which is often misinterpreted as the noise floor of the instrument, Holzworth has architected the instrument’s front-end so that the noise floors limits can be measured. The unique architecture of the HA7062D allows for direct access to key internal modules in order to measure the actual noise floor of the analyzer at any given frequency versus minimum frequency offset and number of correlations.
The HA7062D has high-speed digital processors for speed, but the proven accuracy and speed starts with the analog front-end. A key component of the analog front-end is a pair of Holzworth HSX Series RF Synthesizers as the test system’s internal LOs. These ultra-low noise RF sources not only complement the dual core FFT engine to provide one of the most advanced phase noise analyzers available, but they are also made available to the user at the front panel’s LO Output ports.
The HA7062D has a 1U high, rack mountable chassis form factor. The fully shielded, fan-less chassis eliminates ground loops and troublesome microphonics for uncompromised performance and repeatability. A universal rack mount bracket kit is an available accessory.
