Agilent Technologies Announces Faster RF Signal Generation and Analysis to Significantly Improve Manufacturing Test Throughput for Power Amplifiers Front-End Module Test

Agilent Technologies Inc. has introduced the M9391A, a 1-MHz to 3- or 6-GHz PXIe vector signal analyzer, with up to 160-MHz bandwidth designed to test the latest wireless standards. Used in combination with Agilent’s modular X-series applications, the M9391A delivers a consistent user interface, common measurement consistency, and backward-compatible APIs to accelerate test development and throughput.

The M9391A is a complementary product to the M9381A PXIe VSG for testing and design validation of wireless power amplifiers, transceivers and cellular base stations, primarily picocell and femtocell. The new analyzer performs more tests in less time, significantly reducing costs. It features innovative Fastune technology that enables unprecedented servo-loop test times through rapid frequency and amplitude adjustments. Plus, its hardware-accelerated power measurements maximize throughput while retaining measurement integrity.

Engineers can use the Agilent M9391A PXIe VSA with the M9381A and modular X-Apps to test wideband power amplifiers, front-end modules, transceivers and more. The PXI VSA comes with 40-MHz RF bandwidth and can be upgraded to 100- or 160-MHz bandwidth supporting extremely fast modulation analysis by real-time hardware resampling. The hardware is license-key upgradeable to adapt to new and changing requirements.
