Keysight Technologies, Inc. announced five new frequency options for its E5063A ENA Series network analyzer and set the E5063A’s new starting price at $10,000. With these new options and price, the E5063A now offers the best balance between price and performance. This allows passive component manufacturers to satisfy business and technical requirements.
The new E5063A frequency options cover the 100 kHz to 500-MHz (Opt. 205), 1.5-GHz (Opt. 215), 3.0-GHz (Opt. 235), 6.5-GHz (Opt. 265) and 14-GHz (Opt. 2D5) frequency ranges. The options complement the E5063A’s existing 4.5-, 8.5- and 18-GHz measurement capabilities. Flexible frequency upgrades are also available to meet future needs and protect equipment investment.
“Testing is a critical step in the manufacture of passive components,” said Akira Nukiyama, vice president and general manager of Keysight’s Component Test Division, Kobe. “Performing the necessary testing cost-effectively is just as critical. With the new analyzer’s frequency range options, manufacturers now have the ability to perform the required testing using a network analyzer with industry standard performance and enough frequency range, all at a low price point.”
The E5063A is a low cost network analyzer providing optimized performance and functionality for testing simple passive components, such as antennas, cables, filters, and PCBs. The analyzer uses the consistent measurement framework of the industry standard ENA Series to boost efficiency and productivity, and is future proof and ready to evolve as the technologies change.
