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.
