Agilent ( Hewlett-Packard) 346B Noise Source, 10 MHz to 18 GHz, Nominal ENR 15 dB

The Keysight 346B is a general-purpose broadband noise source that eliminates the need for several sources at varying frequencies. Excess noise ratios for each 1 GHz interval from 10 MHz to 18 GHz are printed on the noise source. Low VSWR reduces uncertainty from the reflection of test signals. Useful for noise figure measurements using the Y-factor method.

Stanford Research SR720 LCR Meter

The SR720 LCR Meter measures major (L, C, R) as well as minor (Q, D, R) parameters of passive components with 0.05 % accuracy. The meter can perform measurements at five fixed test frequencies ranging from 0.1 to 100 kHz and adjustable amplitudes from 0.1 to 1.0 Vrms. The device accepts up to 40 Vdc external biasing if the built-in 2 Vdc is insufficient for a measurement. Included in this rental package is an SR728 BNC adapter for connecting remote fixtures and other equipment. Three binning schemes (pass/fail, overlapping, and sequential) are useful for ensuring that groups of components have the same parameter values that are listed on their specification sheet within a programmable error. Computer control is enabled through an RS-232 or GPIB connection.
