Model: HP / Agilent 4396A     Condition: Reconditioned

The 4396A provides excellent RF vector network and spectrum measurements for lab and production applications.  Gain, phase, group delay, distortion, spurious, CN, and noise measurements often required for evaluating components and circuits can be measured using one instrument.  When combined with a test set, the 4396A provides reflection measurements, such as return loss, and SWR, and S parameters.  As a vector network analyzer, the 4396A operates from 100kHz to 1.8GHz with 1mHz resolution and its integrated synthesized source provides -60 to +20dBm of output power with 0.1dB resolution.  The dynamic magnitude and phase accuracy are ±0.05 dB and ±0.3 deg so that it can accurately measure gain and group delay flatness, which are becoming more important in modern electronics systems.

As a spectrum analyzer, the 4396A operates from 2Hz to 1.8GHz with resolution-bandwidths (RBWs) spanning 1Hz to 3MHz and accurate frequency analysis.  Direct A/D conversion (no LOG amplifier is used) results in ±1.0dB overall level accuracy.  Noise sidebands fall below -105dBc/Hz offset 10kHz from carriers below 1GHz, while sensitivity is -150dBm/Hz at 10MHz and -147dBm at 1GHz.  In addition, with two independent display channels available, you can simultaneously view network and spectrum (or transmission and reflection) characteristics of the device under test in split-screen format.  For example, an amplifier's frequency response (network measurement) and distortion (spectrum measurement) can be shown at the same time.

A built-in 1.44 MB floppy disk drive lets you save and recall test setups, calibration data, measurement data, and HP IBASIC programs in either LIF or MS-DOS format.  An internal RAM disk (volatile memory) is useful for quick saving and recalling.

Network Analysis with Wide Dynamic Range and Fast Sweep Times

The advanced design that provides the low noise floor for spectrum analysis also results in a high speed, wide dynamic range network analyzer.  For real-time tuning of test devices, the 4396A offers sweep time with 90 dB dynamic range (typical) with 350 sec/point sweep time (70 ms sweep time with 201 display points) using 40 kHz IF bandwidth.  At 10Hz IF bandwidth, the analyzer provides 120dB dynamic range.  For easy go/no-go testing, test limit lines are available.

Extremely Fast Spectrum Measurement

The 4396A features a stepped Fast Fourier Transform (FFT) digital-signal-processing (DSP) technique for 20 to 100 times faster narrow band spectrum measurement than swept-tuned spectrum analyzers.  The stepped FFT is performed when the resolution bandwidth (RBW) is set at 3kHz or below.  For example, with a 30Hz RBW and 10kHz span, the 4396A has a sweep time of 400 ms, while swept-tuned spectrum analyzers take a few tens of seconds.  The stepped FFT can greatly improve the efficiency of narrow band spectrum measurement such as frequency tuning of a VCO or CN measurements.

In addition, the 4396A has list sweep capability for both network and spectrum measurements.  This powerful feature sweeps only desired frequency spans, and allows different RBWs to greatly improve test throughput.  For example, when you want to view a fundamental signal and its low-level third harmonic, you no longer have to sweep all frequency ranges with a narrow RBW and endure the long wait for results.  By using list sweep and selecting only frequencies of interest (using a narrow RBW around the low-level signal and a wide RBW for the rest of the sweep), you can clearly view both the fundamental and the third harmonic in much less time compared to using conventional spectrum analyzers.

Time-Gated Spectrum Analyzers

With Option 1D6, the 4396A offers time-gated spectrum analysis capability to capture and measure repetitive burst signals in video, disk drives, communication equipment, and more.  The minimum gate length is 2 sec so that even narrow burst signals can be analyzed.  Furthermore, since the video bandwidth (VBW) filter is digitally implemented, you can use narrow VBWs for noise smoothing without considering the response time of the VBW filter.  This is very useful for time-gated CN measurement of narrow burst signals, where the filter delay of conventional analog VBW filtering would make the measurement impractical.

Easy Test Automation and Customization

You can control additional equipment (via HP-IB or TTL interface) and create test programs without an external computer.  When equipped with Option 1C2, the 4396A includes a built-in instrument controller and HP Instrument BASIC (HP IBASIC), which is a subset of the HP BASIC programming language for instruments.  An external keyboard connects directly to the 4396A for programming convenience
