The 360 network analyzer is the control and display
unit for all versions of the system. Its control (front)
panel controls provide menu selections for test functions,
test parameters, measurement enhancements,
and frequencies. Frequency information is sent to
the signal (frequency) source Over a dedicated system
GPIB. Test parameters, system status, and
measurement data are displayed on the large color
screen and hard copied on a printer or plotter.
Test sets are available that allow microwave vector
measurements-including S parameter measurements
of both active and passive devices-frequency
conversion measurements, antenna measurements,
and receiver measurements. Frequency
range is 10 MHz to 40 GHz. Millimeter-wave test
sets to 110 GHz are also available.
Two signal sources are available 10 MHz to
18 GHz and 10 MHz to 40 GHz. The signal source is
controlled by the network analyzer from a dedicated
IEEE-488 bus. It provides clean, phase-locked test
signals for precise test data. Frequency resolution is
100 kHz. Standard 6600B models are also compatible
and could be used in place of the 3608845
and 360SS69 sources.
