Agilent / HP / Keysight 8510C
8510C Vector Network Analyzer
The Agilent/HP 8510C vector network analyzer provides the best performance to new design and test challenges.
The HP 8510C vector network analyzer makes broadband measurements from 45 MHz to 50 GHz in 2.4 mm coax, from 45 MHz to 110 GHz in 1.0 mm coax and from 33 GHz to 110 GHz in waveguide bands with unmatched accuracy and convenience.
The HP 8510C network analyzer measures the magnitude, phase, and group delay of two-port networks to characterize their linear behavior.
Optionally, the HP 8510C network analyzer is also capable of displaying a network's time domain response to an impulse or a step waveform by computing the inverse Fourier transform of the frequency domain response.
Hard copy plots are automatically produced by the HP 8510C when used with an HP-GL compatible plotter using either the system bus (HP-IB compatible) or serial output interface (RS-232-C).
Eight instrument states can be stored in nonvolatile memory via the SAVE menu. They can then be recalled via the RECALL menu. Eight traces of data can be stored in the trace memories. Traces 1-4 are stored in nonvolatile memory.
The built-in disk drive of the 8510C can be used to store and retrieve different types of data on a 3.5 inch disk. Data files can be stored in either the HP LIF or MS-DOS® formats. Diskettes of double sided format or high density format are recommended.
Data can also be stored on disk using an external disk drive with command subset SS/80. Data files are stored in Hewlett-Packard’s standard LIF or MS-DOS format.
The HP 8510C network analyzer can be Combined with an HP 8514B, 8515A, or 8517B for making full S-parameter measurements.
A wide range of accessories support the HP 8510C network analyzer including calibration kits, verification kits, cables and adapters in 7 mm, 3.5 mm, 2.92 mm. Type-N, 2.4 mm, 1.85 mm and 1.0 mm coax and in the standard waveguide bands.
The time domain option (010) converts data from transmission or reflection measurements to the time domain using the inverse Fourier transform and presented on the CRT display.
