The 3580A Spectrum Analyzer is a low frequency, high performance analyzer. Its 1Hz bandwidth allows the user to examine noise and extraneous signal content close in to a signal of interest. The 3580A features an adaptive sweep which allows the user to set a threshold above which only the spectra of interest are observed. Digital storage is another important feature which enhances the display for slowly swept low frequency signals. • Frequency range: 5Hz to 50kHz • Resolution: 1Hz • Amplitude range: (linear) 20 V-100 nV full scale; (log) +30 dBm or dB V and -150 dBm or dB V • Dynamic range: 80 dB • Sweep scan width: 50Hz to 50kHz • Log sweep: 20Hz to 43kHz ± 20% after 3 sweeps • Sweep times: 0.1 sec to 2000 sec • Output range: 0 to 1 V RMS into 600 ohms • Frequency response: ± 3%, 5Hz to 50kHz • Adaptive sweep for increased scan speed .

Service and Operating Manual Bundle: 8569B Spectrum Analyzer Operation and Service Manual 1982-12-01 | PDF 33.3 MB

High performance and simple operation are combined with unique microprocessor-controlled capabilities in the 8569B Microwave Spectrum Analyzer. Excellent sensitivity and internal preselection assure the wide, spurious-free measurement range necessary for production applications, while the digital display and couples controls speed measurement routines. The internal frequency range of 10MHz to 22GHz is extended using external mixers: to 40GHz in two bands (optional); to 71GHz with 11971 series mixers (sold separately); and to 115GHz with commercially available mixers. For semi-automatic operation, connect a desktop computer to the unit via HP-IB to allow access to the displayed trace data and the control settings necessary to analyze or record measurements, or display operator messages and prompts on the CRT. Direct, hard copy output to a digital plotter is possible with the need of a controller or any programming. •Simplified three knob operation •Wide resolution range (100Hz to 3MHz) •Amplitude range from -123 to +30 dBm •HP-IB display interface.
