- Electronic storage of Excess Noise Ratio (ENR) calibration data decreases the opportunity for user error
- Automatic download of ENR data to the NFA speeds overall set-up time
- Temperature compensation improves measurement accuracy leading to tighter specification of device performance
- N4000A/001: Type-N (m) connector
The SNS Series of noise sources work in conjunction with the NFA Series of noise figure analyzers to simplify measurement set-up and improve accuracy and reliability. When connected to the NFA Series analyzer the noise source automatically downloads the electronically stored calibration data to the analyzer, as well as automatically measuring its own temperature so that compensation can be applied to the calibration data. This covers applications with a range of frequencies, Excess Noise Ratio (ENR) and coaxial connector types.
The SNS series N4000A is a 10 MHz to 18 GHz noise source with nominal ENR 6 dB. The N4000A noise source is designed for accurately measuring devices with low noise figure, or devices whose gain is especially sensitive to small changes in source impedance. DUT's with noise figure up to 20 dB can be accurately and reliably measured with this device.
