Description Spectrum/Network Analyzer
                                    The HP 3589A helps solve your measurement problems by
combining spectrum and network analysis features in one
analyzer. It does this by providing three distinct
measurement types, all of which are available for the entire
10 Hz to 150 MHz frequency range.

•	The swept spectrum measurement type lets you measure
spectral components for spans up to 150 MHz. But a design
that includes a digital resolution bandwidth (RBW) filter
allows the HP 3589A to measure these components several
times faster than traditional swept-tuned analyzers.

•	The narrowband zoom measurement type lets you make
narrowband measurements much more quickly than swept
spectrum measurements by using an implementation of the Fast
Fourier Transform. This lets you characterize, for example,
a signal and its close-in sidebands. Narrowband zoom
measurements are available for spans of 40 kHz or less.

•	The swept network measurement type lets you characterize
one-port and two-port devices. Because the HP 3589A provides
vector (rather than scalar) network data, you can
characterize both the magnitude and phase response of these
devices. And with the addition of the HP 35689A/B test set,
you can make S-parameter measurements as well.

You can also operate the analyzer remotely, via the HP-IB,
to make automated measurements—a technique that’s
particularly useful for repetitive tasks (such as those
encountered in production-line testing). However, you aren’t
restricted to remote operation for automated
measurements—you can also use the analyzer’s optional HP
Instrument BASIC (Option 1C2) to create automated
measurement routines without an external controller or computer.

Your instrument may also be equipped with the time-gated
sweep option (Option 1D6). This extends the analyzer’s
triggering capability to let you characterize magnetic and
optical media and head assemblies from burst signal sources
such as video recorders, magnetic and optical disks, and
similar devices.

Other options include additional instrument memory (Option
1C1) and a high-stability frequency reference (Option 1D5).

Quick Start Guide

This book introduces you to the HP 3589A Spectrum/Network
Analyzer and the HP 35689A/B S-Parameter Test Set. The
introduction comes in the form of several quick tasks
that will have you making measurements in no time.

The tasks are grouped into six sections, The Basics
will get you started. Setting Up shows you how to initialize
some important settings. Working with the Display
shows you how to control some important display options.
Making Measurements shows you how to make several basic
measurements. Saving and Plotting shows you how to use
some basic disk and plotting functions. Automating
Measurements introduces two of the analyzer’s measurement
automation features.

If you need additional information while you are performing
one of these tasks, use the analyzer’s online help
system—a task in The Basics shows you how.

Operator's Guide
For Instruments with Firmwave Revision A.00.00

This book is the HP 3589A Operator's Guide. It provides a
conceptual overview of the HP 3589A Spectrum/Network
Analyzer and its companion HP 35689A/B S-Parameter Test Set.
This book also contains typical tasks to help you learn how
to use your new analyzer. These include both
measurement-specific tasks and general tasks.
