Noise Figure Measurement Application

Manufacturer's part number :


Manufacturer Agilent Technologies

Keysight Technologies

Description :

The N9069A noise figure measurement application is one in a common library of more than 25 measurement applications in the Keysight X-Series, an evolutionary approach to signal analysis that spans instrumentation, measurements and software. Transforming the X-Series signal analyzers into noise figure measurements, the application provides one-button noise figure and gain measurements to help you design, evaluate, and manufacture your devices or receiving systems.
