Phase Noise TestersWith platforms from 5 MHz to 7 GHz, 26 GHz, and 40 GHz

The 7000 series is an integrated solution that offers an indispensable set of measurement functions for evaluating VHF to microwave frequency signal sources such as crystal oscillators, PLL synthesizers, clocks, phase-locked or free-running VCO's, DROs, SAW, or Yig oscillators, and others. The flexible instrument comprises a two-channel, cross-correlation system with two internal, tunable references sources that also allows measurements with externally sourced references. We offer three platform options for the 7000 Series Phase Noise Testers: the 7070 5 MHz-to-7 GHz, the 7300 5 MHz-to-26 GHz, and the 7340 from 5 MHz-to-40 GHz.

Signal Source Analyzer Resources

A remote control for the instrument is available with LAN (VXI-11), USB or GPIB. The GPIB is an option and conforms with IEEE standards. The remote control is addressed with a user choice of software or command string options. The included comprehensive GUI gives users control of all parameters in BNC's familiar virtual instrument panel.
