USB measurement platform saves test bench space

A measurement platform of compact USB instruments comprising vector network analysers (VNAs), oscilloscopes and an arbitrary waveform generator (AWG) has been announced by Keysight Technologies. Controlled via PC through a USB connection, the new instruments help customers save space on the test bench and are easily shared among members of a development team.

The small rack size makes them ideal for manual or semi-automated testing in design-validation and light-manufacturing applications.

Keysight Streamline Series platform is available in three models.

The P937xA models are compact two-port VNAs with frequency coverage up to 26.5GHz. All are designed to excel in the testing of passive devices such as antennas, filters and duplexers. Running on a host PC, the context-sensitive user interface is identical to that of Keysight’s latest benchtop VNAs.

The P924xA high performance oscilloscopes provide full measurement functionality along with advanced triggering, rapid waveform updates, and popular features such as zone triggering. With the Keysight InfiniiVision interface running on the user’s PC, the look and feel is consistent with familiar benchtop oscilloscopes.

Using Keysight-exclusive Trueform waveform generation, the P9336A three-channel AWG provides 16-bit resolution with maximum analysis bandwidth of 540MHz and maximum onboard memory of 4GB. Applications range from general-purpose testing to complex I/Q signal generation for characterisation of transceivers and modulators. To simplify signal creation, the USB AWG is compatible with Keysight Signal Studio software.
