   The Agilent 85640A is a MIL-Rugged portable tracking generator to be used with the Agilent 8560A, 8561A/B, or 8562A/B portable spectrum analyzer. Combining the Agilent 85640A tracking generator with a portable spectrum analyzer results in a system having both scalar-analysis and spectrum-analysis capabilities. Use the scalar-analysis capability to perform measurements such as gain, frequency response, compression, flatness, and return loss on components and subsystems. Use the spectrum analysis capability to measure harmonic and inter-modulation distortion, as well as spurious products.


  • Portable and rugged
  • Versatility in the field
  • High throughput and wide dynamic range

   The combination of the 85640A and a portable analyzer allows you to make a wide variety of scalar measurements in the field. Check sub-system performance and make antenna return-loss measurements to isolate potential problems. Use your portable scalar system and the analyzer's built-in FFT capability to locate faults in cables and interconnections. Opens and shorts, as well as damaged or poorly-connected cables, can be isolated and then repaired.

   A tracking generator combined with a spectrum analyzer allows measurements to be made with fast, continuous sweeps. The 85640A features a dynamic range higher than 115 dB and shares the synthesized frequency accuracy of the spectrum analyzer. This lets you quickly and accurately make real-time adjustments of devices and measure parameters such as filter rejection and switch insulation. In addition, the 85640A includes a manually-controlled, built-in output attenuator and vernier, so you can vary the output level for measurements like gain compression.
