Requires a 8350B mainframe to operate

   The Agilent/HP 83595A RF plug-in provides a 10 MHz to 26.5 GHz broadband coaxial swept frequency source for the Agilent 8350B sweep oscillator mainframe. Applications include scalar network analysis, serving as a local oscillator for down-converting high frequency signals, and a stand-alone RF signal source.

   The Agilent/HP 83595A covers the 0.01-26.5 GHz range in a single sweep.  While the HP 83595A series feature broadband sweeps, they still maintain narrowband precision.  The frequency ou tput exhibits excellent stability and accuracy.  At 26.5 GHz the HP 83595A maintains an accuracy of ± 12 MHz.  Power output capabilities have been expan ded to provide power sweep and slope control.  In addition, the HP 83595A series plug-ins are completely HP-IB programmable.

   The most outstanding feature of the HP 83595A series plug-ins is their broad frequency range.  Innovative technology is used to create this precision frequency range. The principle behind this technology is the Switched YIG Tuned Multiplier circuit (SYTM).  The YTM circuit uses the output of a fundamental oscillator to dr ive a high-efficiency multiplier that has been integrated with a tracking YIG filter in order to create and select high order harmonics to be used as output fre quencies. A figure of merit for the HP 83595A series is their flat output power over the entire frequency range.  The output power is internally leveled wi thin 0.9 dB with a displayed resolution of 0.1 dB. 

   Since power parameters are critical to high frequency measurements, the HP 83590 Ser ies (along with all HP 83500 series plug-ins) offer many modes of power output.  In addition to a single power output, the HP 83590 Series offer a Power Sw eep function.  The Power Sweep function sweeps a power range for characterizing level sensitive devices like amplifiers and transistors.  The Slope mo de is supplied to provide compensation for cable or test set losses.  In all these modes the power output is internally monitored and leveled.  If pre ferred, the power may be externally leveled.  The HP 83590 Series plug-ins are capable of power meter leveling with the HP 432A/B/C, 436A, and 438A power meters.
