The HP 8341A synthesized sweeper delivers the combined high-performance of a synthesizer and a broadband sweep oscillator in one instrument that is completely controllable via the HP-IB. This efficient combination of performance and versatility is ideal for manual or automatic test systems and in many cases lets the 8341A replace a sweep oscillator, a frequency counter, an RF synthesizer, and a microwave synthesizer. The synthesized broadband frequency coverage of 10 MHz to 20 GHz, and the precise 1 Hz to 4 Hz frequency resolution are generated by indirect synthesis techniques, enabling the 8341A to achieve low single-sideband phase-noise performance. The 8341A also features CW switching times of better than 50 ms (typically <35 ms). In addition, a "Fast Phase-lock" programming command can be used to reduce typical CW switching times to between 11 and 22 ms.

Analog sweep widths as narrow as 100 Hz or as broad as the full frequency range of the 8341A permit rapid and thorough testing of any device within their broad frequency ranges. Five frequency markers are provided, along with useful marker functions such as marker sweep, marker to center frequency, and marker difference.

The high performance pulse modulators of the 8341A Option 006 offer >80 dB ON/OFF ratio and <25 ns rise and fall times. Pulse amplitudes are leveled for pulse widths as narrow as 100 ns. The 8341A also features dc-coupled AM modulation with a 3 dB bandwidth of 100 kHz and a minimum depth of 90%. Pulse and amplitude modulation can be used simultaneously to simulate antenna scan patterns.

The 8341A provides high output power, which can be controlled down to -110 dBm with Option 004.

Besides being an excellent stand-alone general purpose source, the 8341A is also an ideal source for precision microwave network analysis.
