Power Detector compatible with Agilent 8756A NetworkAnalyzer - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Hello Ashish and welcome to the TM Forum,

This NA is obsolete. The detectors for use with this NA are the 11664A/B series. The link below is to the user manual. It lists all the measurement components used with this NA. I suggest downloading it (pdf) for future reference. Agilent has a habit of removing obsolete equipment documentation without notice. ... -90013.pdf

Good Luck,

Thank you for your your help. I know that the NA is obselete, however I have no other option. I want to know whether there is any other Power Detector which can be used with this SNA(8756) and also will be useful when I upgrade to a better SNA
