A fully integrated high-performance cross-correlation signal source analyzer from 5 MHz to 40 GHz
The model 7000 series Signal Source Analyzers are particularly well suited for conducting phase noise and jitter measurement in VCXOs, TCXOs, and OCXOs. Unlike some traditional systems, they have the ability to analyze both absolute and additive phase noise.
The 7000 Series is a fully contained signal source analyzer (SSA) from 5 MHz to 40 GHz. The instrument supports absolute and residual phase noise (from 0.01 Hz to 50 MHz offset) as well as transient and baseband FFT analysis. It addition, the 7000 Series SSA provides spectrum and phase monitoring and excels in fast sweeping automated test modes for VCO characterization or high volume phase noise testing.
Berkeley Nucleonics offers three different models of signal source analyzers with variations in frequency range measurement coverage. Both systems are ideal for crystal oscillator manufacturers because of their use of external source features. This set up can significantly cut down analysis time and required correlations for key data. They’re also ideal for Automated Testing Environments (ATE) through the use of their GUI, command protocol, or any drivers built for LabVIEW, MatLab, or C++.
The BNC Signal Source Analyzers offer many unique features that set them apart from competitive offerings. Some of the more notable features include:
- Broadband in a single compact instrument from 5 MHz to 40 GHz
- Measurement offsets from .01 Hz to 100 MHz
- AM (Absolute Amplitude Noise) measurements
- Pulsed Measurement Capabilities
- Absolute Phase Noise - High Drift mode (ability to measure modulations and high drifting or unstable DUTs, etc)
- External Reference Tune Voltage Ranges -5 to 20 V
- Transient Mode: possible to measure WB Frequency, NB Frequency, NB Phase, NB Power (WB/NB being Wide Band and Narrow Band).
- Transient Mode: 10 MHz external reference can also be used to lock the references -> synchronized phase and frequency measurements in NB are possible.
- Enhanced Spectrum Monitoring tool
- FM mode – Frequency noise, for high drift
- ½ the cost of Agilent 5052 or other traditional competing equipment.
