8990B Peak Power Analyzer
Agilent’s 8990B is a high-performance RF peak power meter that measures and analyzes RF pulses. The 8990B achieves a 5-ns rise time/fall time (with the N1923A or N1924A power sensor), allowing R&D engineers and technicians to capture shorter pulse measurements with high accuracy during module design, verification, or troubleshooting. Built for ease of use, the 8990B is equipped with a 15-in. XGA color display that can simultaneously display four-channel results (two RF and two video channels) in detail. It comes with touch-screen capability for quick data manipulation. Users can set, trigger, and measure pulses with dedicated buttons for amplitude and time-scale settings. The instrument can make 15 pulse parameter measurements and marker measurements, all predefined and executable in two steps via the touch-screen display.
