In our institution, we have EXA Signal Analyzer Agilent Spectrum Analyzer N9010A (9 KHz - 3.6 GHz). My query is, using this Agilent N9010A spectrum analyzer , are we able to measure third order input intercept point (IIP3) and P1 dB compression point.

If it is possible, what specification combiner we need, what are all other equipments we need to measure the IIP3 and P1 dB compression point. Using Agilent ADS 2014, we have simulated IIP3 as 50 dBm. Does it possible measuring the 50 dBm IIP3 using above said Spectrum analyzer.

Can you clarify my doubts.
