Dear Sir,
              We have following network analyzer
              *Agilent Technologies PNA-L- NETWORK ANALYZER (N5230C) (10MHz-20GHz)*
              What is my doubt is, *do we measure NOISE FIGURE(NF) using above Network Analyzer without connecting NOISE SOURCE of  5dB or 15 dB. Does this network analyzer has in built NOISE SOURCE.* If inbuilt Noise Source, we need not go for connecting externally noise source of 5 dB or 15 dB.
              Can you clarify my   above data.
              If anybody knows , what are all things we can measure using above NA, show me the help link and also show me the NOISE FIGURE and Third Order input intercept Point (IIP3)and Third order output intercept point (OIP3) measurement help document using above NA.
