Vector network analyzer setup for X-band measurements

System components include:

HP 8510C network analyzer

HP 8341B synthesizer is a swept, synthesized source with1-Hz frequency resolution, and wide dynamic range. The arbitrary frequency sweep mode can be programmed for exact frequencies or sweep segments at which your device is to be tested, giving faster measurements while maintaining full error-corrected performance.
