Rack Mounted FieldFox for Agilent SMT Pkg Test
A single FieldFox RF Analyzer replaced a
legacy VNA, spectrum analyzer and power
meter
Application:
• Low volume, on-wafer manufacturing test
applications
• Measuring ICs
• Measuring S21 gain, power, harmonics
Benefits:
• Much lower cost solution
• Performance and accuracy of FieldFox met the
requirements
• Measurement time is << than part handling time

Summary: Results of MMIC Integration
• Agilent MMICs enable FieldFox analyzers to establish a new
level of performance to 26.5 GHz in a 14 watt, no fans or vents,
easy to use instrument
• FieldFox has the same measurement science as high end
benchtops resulting in direct measurement correlation
• FieldFox rugged design meets MIL-PRF-28800F Class 2
and has been type tested to MIL-STD-810G Explosive
Atmosphere test. Meets CISPR 11 Class B.
• Integration = higher reliability, enables standard 3 Year warranty
• FieldFox combination analyzers can be configured with up to ten
instruments in one which is extremely useful for both field and
R&D lab measurements
