The Agilent/HP 5316B is a low-cost, high-performance
universal counter offering frequency, period, time interval, ratio,
and totalize measurements. Unique counting circuitry delivers the
best of both reciprocal and conventional frequency counting.
Programmable functions include all measurement modes, plus trigger
level and trigger slope controls.
The Agilent/HP 5316B is encased in high-quality
metal that meets strict standards for electromagnetic
compatibility, making it suited to applications such as low-level
receiver or high-power transmitter testing. With standard HP-IB
interfacing, 5316B is suited for ATE system design or other
environments where interference from other equipment is a
An optional 1-GHz C channel extends the frequency
range for navigations and communications applications. A
high-stability oven oscillator can also be added for higher
accuracy in demanding environments.
- Exceptional resolution at both low and high frequencies
- Three time-interval modes solve more problems
- Flexible signal conditioning optimized for both frequency and
- Selectable gate time from 60 ms to 10 s
- 100 MHz A and B input channels, Optional 1 GHz C channel
- Full frequency range (to 100 MHz) on both input channels
- Proven reliability and excellent RFI protection
- Exceptional Resolution
- Below 10 MHz, the counter measures the input signal period,
then computes and displays the reciprocal frequency with 7 digits
of resolution in one second for signals as low as 0.1 Hz. Above 10
MHz, the counter automatically performs as a conventional
- Three Modes
- The HP 5316B offers 100 ns single-shot time-interval
resolution. Time-interval averaging boosts performance to 10 ps
resolution. A time-interval delay ignores spurious signals that
would normally cause the counter to trigger.
- Flexible Conditioning
- Choose ac or dc coupling, a sensitivity control (variable
attenuator), and a switchable low-pass filter. Both channels have
trigger level controls with easy setting.
