  • 1. Form Factor: Class 3 MIL RuggedRecommendations if this is a requirement: Option 1: PSA as it is Class 3 MIL Rugged Option 2: ESA as it is Class 3 MIL Rugged Option 3: X-Series see environmental specs in appendix

  • 2. Hardware Functionality* NOTE: There are no plans to obsolete the TG at this time

  • 3. Hardware Performance: Key Specifications PSA 856x MXA ESANOTE: The 856x series has great phase noise performance. This is the #1 specification that you need to qualify to help your customers migrate

  • 4. Backward Code Compatibility: 856x to X-SeriesN9061A Remote Language Compatibility ApplicationEmulates the HP/Agilent 856xE/EC remote programming language Supports the most frequently used 856xE/EC commands Available with new X-Series signal analyzers (MXA/EXA) as a standard feature Has command error logging

    Areas of Caution:Does not cover commands for:856x Phase Noise Utility856x Spurious UtilityThe X-Series (MXA/EXA) does not currently have Amplitude Correction and Limit Lines features at this time but this is under development and will be available soon.

  • 5. Additional Features: Security Clearing ProceduresIn General:Go to and enter the model number of your instrument.


    MXA/EXA: Removable CPU, option CPU

    PSA:PSA high-performance spectrum analyzers offer 4 levels of security: 1) Display manipulation; 2) Secure erase all memory; 3) User file deletion; and 4) Read-only file mounting. While levels 1) and 2) are standard feature s for all PSA(s), levels 3) and 4) require PSA Option 117.

    ESA: Option CPU

  • 5. Additional Features: Calibration Cycle & Cost of Ownership Example is for a 26 GHz analyzer, prices were quoted in Aug 08 Z540 and ISO 17025 calibration also available at additional charge Agilent TME Calibration Software is available at:

    ** NOTE: EXA was introduced in Sep 2007 so still collecting data to see if we can go to a 2 year cal cycle
