Precision and Versatility

The Agilent Technologies 8360 family consists of the general purpose B-model series and the application-focused L-model series. They combine the excellent frequency resolution, level control, signal purity, and modulation capabilities you expect of a high-performance synthesized signal generator with the speed and convenience of a sweep oscillator. They are ideal for the demanding requirements of signal simulation, local oscillator, and stimulus/response component or subsystem test applications. The 8360 family offer a choice of models to meet a variety of application requirements. Ultra-broadband frequency coverage from 10 MHz to 50 GHz is available in coax using a 2.4 mm precision connector. High-power models with up to +20 dBm are also available, and can be used to directly drive the 83550 series mm-wave source modules

Component test

For component or subsystem testing, speed and accuracy are critical. The 8360 offers synthesized precision, as well as many convenient sweep modes including high-throughput analog ramp, step and power sweeps. The 8360 is also completely compatible with all of the current 8510 and 8757 microwave network analyzer systems, including broadband coaxial, millimeter, pulsed RF, and antenna-test configurations.

Sweep flexibility

Choose from phase-lock-corrected analog sweeps, fully synthesized stepped sweeps, or list sweeps that allow arbitrary frequency sequencing. Frequency switching times can be as fast as five milliseconds in step or list sweep modes. At each step in list mode, power level and dwell time are independently controllable. Step sweeps offer the ultimate in simultaneous speed and accuracy, providing six times faster sweeps on 8510C systems when compared to previous generation sources. Ramp sweeps increase productivity in 8757 scalar systems and provide ten times better accuracy in 8510 systems.

User flatness correction

The 8360 delivers excellent output level accuracy and flatness. But the frequency response and mismatch errors of switches, cables, and other components between the source and the test port can degrade source performance. User flatness correction in the 8360 allows transfer of power-meter accuracy to any remote point of interest, with typical residual flatness of only hundredths of a dB. This correction applies in either CW or any sweep mode, in real time. The 8360 can control an 437B power meter to accomplish this calibration automatically, or correction arrays can be loaded via GPIB or manually.

Two-tone measurements

Accurate fixed-frequency and swept-frequency offset measurements can be achieved by setting up two 8360 synthesized sweepers in a two-tone (master/ slave) measurement configuration. An 8360-based two-tone measurement system can be operated in either ramp- or step-sweep measurement modes. Ramp sweep measurements offer rapid device characterization, while stepsweep measurements provide synthesized frequency accuracy at each frequency point. By using one timebase for both sources, instabilities from temperature or line voltage variations are reduced. Designers and manufacturers of frequency-translation devices and amplifiers can use the greater accuracy and stability achieved during testing to increase productivity.
