Agilent (Hewlett-Packard) 8970B Noise Figure Meter

The Agilent 8970B makes noise figure measurements in the 0 to 30 dB range. Measured noise can be displayed as noise figure or equivalent input noise temperature. Excess Noise Ratio (ENR) data can be entered in data tables on the noise figure meter. The meter uses this information to correct for ENR vs. frequency variations. The 8970B can be used with Agilent 346 (CMC loans the Agilent 346B Solid State Noise Source separately) or 347 noise sources.

Agilent 87405A Preamplifier, 10 MHz to 3 GHz

The 87405A Preamplifier is a multi-purpose instrument for any application that requires low noise and additional gain. The SNR of the final signal in an RF system is greatly impacted by the initial amplification of the signal and its original SNR. By having low noise figure in a preamplifier, the final signal will have a lower noise than without the preamplifier.

Disruption to CMC online applications

Thursday, May28th 6am-9am EDT

CMC is making improvements to infrastructure that will temporarily affect license access to ANSYS Campus Solutions for research, Amira, Avizo, Coventor, DW2000, Labview, Optiwave, SoftMEMS, and Zemax CAD tools. These improvements will also affect access to the CMC Cloud web access and My Account sections of the website. All other online services will continue to operate normally. 

We apologize for the inconvenience this will cause.
