Real-time phase noise analysis up to 50 GHz

25 November 2020 Test & Measurement

Wireless Telecom Group announced the introduction of the Holzworth HA7063A Downconverter, which extends the capabilities of the phase noise analyser product portfolio to 50 GHz.

The new downconverter solution was specifically designed to address measurement needs of high-frequency, wide-bandwidth 5G and radar applications, as well as to seamlessly integrate with the Holzworth HA7000 series real-time phase noise analysers, enabling both new and existing customers to unlock this extended performance and capability.

The HA7063A delivers phase noise and RMS jitter measurements in real time, while providing ultra-low noise measurement floors within a compact form factor. It utilises a unique heterodyne architecture that optimises measurement noise floors across its entire frequency range, providing both absolute and additive (residual) phase noise measurement capability. The frequency extension enables the expansion of Holzworth real-time phase noise analysers with the distinctive ability to actually measure and quantify the noise floor of the instrument itself. Competitive products merely offer approximated noise floor information that can only be derived while measuring a device under test.

The HA7000 Series utilises high-speed digital processors and powerful front-end analog performance to provide a high level of accuracy and acquisition speed, as well as uncompromised performance and data repeatability. The HA7063A’s integration with the HA7000 real-time phase noise analysers is controlled through a single, highly intuitive user interface for simple operation.
