   GIGATRONICS 8003   Description / Specification:    
GIGATRONICS 8003 10 MHz to 40 GHz Precision Scalar Analyzer

The Gigatronics 8003 Precision Scalar Analyzer measures scalar (magnitude only) properties of microwave components. These properties include insertion characteristics (gain or attenuation) and reflection characteristics (return loss or VSWR). It offers a 90 dB dynamic range with a linearity of
±0.04 dB in the CW Mode and ±0.06 dB in the Swept Mode. A unique feature of the 8003 is its ability to make CW power meter-accurate power measurements. Giga-tronics power sensors include EEPROMs programmed with Cal Factor data to give fully corrected power readings during frequency sweeps. A front panel calibrator linearizes sensors and bridges to ±0.04 dB linearity, and provides an absolute power accuracy of ±0.7% at 1 mW. The 8003 can be used as a 3-channel power meter.


Frequency Range: 10 MHz to 40 GHz in coax using Giga-tronics 803XXA Series power
sensors and 80500 Series bridges and an appropriate sweeper.
Power Range: +30 to -70 dBm.

System Dynamic Range.
CW Measurements: 90 dB.
Swept Measurements;
  AC Mode: 90 dB,
  DC Mode: 80 dB.
Peak Measurements: 40 dB.
Inputs: Three identical inputs, A, B and C accept detected outputs from Giga-tronics power sensors and bridges.

Average Power
Average power means that the energy transfer rate is to be averaged over many periods of the lowest frequency involved. For a CW signal, the lowest frequency and highest frequency are the same, so average power and power are the same. For an amplitude modulated wave, the power must be averaged over many periods of the modulation component of the signal as well.

A harmonic of a wave is a component frequency of the signal that is an integer multiple of the fundamental frequency, i.e. if the fundamental frequency is f, the harmonics have frequencies 2f, 3f, 4f, . . . etc.

Phase Noise
Phase noise is the frequency domain representation of rapid, short-term, random fluctuations in the phase of a waveform, caused by time domain instabilities. Phase noise (L(f)) is typically expressed in units of dBc/Hz, representing the noise power relative to the carrier contained in a 1 Hz bandwidth centered at a certain offsets from the carrier.
