   The Agilent/HP 8991A peak power analyzer provides complete and accurate characterization of today's complex pulsed signals. It is capable of performing seven automatic timing measurements (rise time, fall time, pulse width, PRI, PRF, duty cycle, and delay) and five automatic power measurement (peak power, average power, pulse top/base amplitude, and overshoot) with push-button ease. Front-panel operation is intuitive and straightforward. Data entries can be typed in or made with the front panel knob; automatic measurements are made with simple keystroke. The 8991A offers two sensor channels plus two external triggering/oscilloscope channels, allowing the simultaneous measurement of modulating signals and detector power envelopes.


  • Amplitude and time markers for measuring power exactly where its needed
  • Two oscilloscope channels for measuring time delay between video and microwave pulse
  • Versatile triggering enables the capturing of exclusive glitches
  • Waveform math functions for measuring scalar pulse parameters
  • Dynamic Range: >45 dB
  • Minimum Pulse Width: 20 ns
  • Rise Time: <5 ns
  • Sensor and Video Inputs: 1 and 4; 2 and 3

    The Agilent/HP 8991A peak power analyzer is designed to measure the power of pulsed signals accurately over a wide dynamic range. A well-designed calibration strategy was required to achieve the specified accuracy over all of the specified operating conditions. Agilent/HP 8991A calibration includes both calibration of the power sensor and calibration of the analyzer. Changes in input power, carrier frequency, and sensor temperature are automatically compensated for. The user is not required to disconnect the sensor from the device under test and connect it to a calibration source.

   The Agilent/HP 8991A performs 8 automatic timing measurements including, rise time, fall time, pulse width, PRI, PRF, duty cycle and delay. Also 5 automatic power measurements, peak power, average power, pulse top/bottom amplitude and overshoot. Two sensor channels and two trigger/oscilloscope channels.
