Keysight N5247B PNA-X Vector Network Analyzer, 10 MHz to 90 GHz Solution, 2 Ports

The Keysight N5247B PNA-X Vector Network Analyzer available from the CMC Equipment Rental Program is a multi-function test system that allows you to perform a wide range of automated measurements on linear and non-linear RF devices such as amplifiers, mixers, and frequency converters.  The VNA provides 10 MHz to 67 GHz measurements on its own, and it now comes with a test controller and test heads to provide E-band testing from 60 to 90 GHz using coaxial and waveguide methods. A probe station is also included with positioners to support the frequency extenders.


  • 10 MHz to 90 GHz operating range
  • Coaxial (1.85mm, 1mm) and Waveguide (WR12) inputs and outputs.
  • 2 test ports , single source
  • 110 dB system dynamic range, 32,001 points, 32 channels, 15 MHz IF bandwidth on VNA
  • High-output power (+10 dBm at 67 GHz) and a wide power sweep range (40 dB) on VNA
