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. The N4000A noise sources has a choice of connectors, with an APC 3.5(mm) connector as standard.
The SNS series N4001A noise source is ideal for general purpose use with a low reflection coefficient and a nominal ENR of 15 dB from 10 MHz to 18 GHz. DUT's with noise figures up to 30 dB can be measured accurately and reliably with this device. The N4001A has a selection of connectors, with an APC 3.5(m) connector as standard.
The SNS series N4002A noise source was designed to measure DUT noise figures reliable and accurately up to 30 dB from 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz. This noise source comes with an APC 3.5 connector as standard.
