Agilent E4416A Peak and Average Power Meter Available for Immediate Rental from Advanced Test Equipment
DIEGO, Calif. – January 6, 2010 – The high-performing
Agilent E4416A single-channel power meter is a low-cost, single-box solution for peak, peak-to-average ratio,
average power and time gated measurements, for the complex modulation formats used in today’s and future wireless
Time-gated measurements are performed using the meters comprehensive triggering
features, such as an external TTL compatible trigger input. Up to 4 simultaneous time-gated measurements can be
made. Individual start and duration times can be setup, allowing users to measure the average, peak or
peak-to-average ratio. For example, on a GSM signal, this capability can be used to measure the average power over
5% to 95% of the burst duration, as well as measuring the peak power and pulse droop.
Faster test times improve manufacturing productivity and efficiency. The meter’s 20 Msamples/second continuous
sampling rate provides the capability to accurately profile complex modulation formats of up to 5 MHz bandwidth.
The LCD display is arranged into two windows and provides user’s with the ability to show either a large 1-line or
up to a 4-line numeric measurement display, or an analog display, or show the trace display. To provide an
intuitive user interface, the meter’s hardkeys provide the most frequently used functions for making measurements
on TDMA and CDMA signals, such as the TRIGGER function, while the softkey menus simplify configuring the meter for
the user’s particular measurement needs.
