Keysight / Agilent - N5106A

Minimize design uncertainty with the most flexibility to test beyond standard requirements

The PXB lets you customize test cases and validate designs under real-world conditions with the broadest range of test parameters. Create fully parameterized signals for established and evolving standards with Keysight Signal Studio. In addition, the PXB lets you model the signal-propagation environment with fully parameterized real-time channel emulation (fading). With the largest playback memory available, you can run longer test sequences to better approximate real-world signals. You can also capture signals up to 512 Msa from your own device for post-processing.

Reduce the time, cost and complexity of system setup and calibration

With less instrumentation to manage, the N5106A PXB simplifies test setup. You need only one box for multi-format baseband generation, real-time fading and signal capture. With it, you can construct over 20 configurations to meet your test needs. These configurations, along with external instrument connections, can be redefined in seconds using the PXB user interface. The PXB eliminates the time-consuming work of combining cables, splitters and power meters to connect and calibrate instruments. Plus signal routing, summing, sync and calibration are all managed seamlessly inside the PXB.

Maximize the value of your investment through higher instrument utilization and easy upgrades

The N5106A PXB supports multiple functions, future technologies, frequent use and easy upgrades. You can leverage one multipurpose diagnostic toolset across the R&D lifecycle: design, integration, verification and pre-conformance.

To extend the longevity of your test equipment, the PXB features license-key upgrades to add new capabilities and signal formats, and quick on-site upgrades to add hardware for higher-order configurations. Plus you can use your existing RF signal generators and analyzers or add them incrementally to your setup, then redeploy them when they’re no longer needed.
