Measuring IMD of frequency converters

Question asked by david_ballo Employee on Jul 22, 2009
Here's a heads-up that Agilent's PNA-X Option 087 IMD application now supports measurements on mixers and frequency converters. If you already own this option, you can upgrade (for free) to firmware rev A.08.55.08 (http://na.tm.agilent.com/pna/firmware/firmware.htm), which will give you two new Measurement Classes: Swept IMD Converters and IM Spectrum Converters.

One cool new feature is that you can measure IMD while sweeping LO power. This helps you find the optimum LO power level or see how much LO-power margin you have.
