I work at a small company and we are looking for a low cost spectrum analyzer to look at 12-14 bit data converter performance and to measure PLL phase noise (1-10ps total RMS jitter).  We operate at frequencies < 1.5 GHz.  I would love to hear advice from the experts whether the 8590A/B would be suitable, or whether higher end equipment is recommended or perhaps necessary.

I was planning to use the free PN GPIB tool to measure phase noise.

Thank you for your help.
