BOONTON 4500A RF Peak Power Meter Analyzer

The Boonton 4500A RF Peak Power Meter Analyzer when operated with 56000 series power sensors, is a versatile power measuring system. It has the capability to make over 25 different measurements on captured signals. This instrument can measure the peak and average power of signals in the frequency range of 30 MHz to 40 GHz with a dynamic range of over 60 dB. The 4500A has three measurement modes - pulse power, CW power and statistical power. Specifications. Sensor Inputs; Frequency Range: 30 MHz to 40 GHz, selectable. Pulse Measurement Range: -40 to +20 dB. CW Measurement Range: -50 to +20 dB. Risetime (10 - 90%): See sensor specifications. Single-Shot Bandwidth: 100 kHz (based on 10 samples per pulse). Pulse Repetition Rate: 25 MHz. Minimum Pulse Width: 30 ns. Vertical Scale: Pulse and Statistical Mode. Pulse Mode; Time Base Range: 10 ns to 1 s/div. Time Base Accuracy: 0.01%. Time Base Resolution: 200 ps. Statistical Mode; X-Axis: .1, .2, .5, 1, 2, 5, 10% per division. Percent Offset Range: 0 - 99% (x-axis dependent). Percent Resolution: 0.002%. Options. 01 - Second measurement channel; the channel, trigger and calibrator connectors are located on the front panel. 02 - One measurement channel; the channel, trigger and calibrator connectors are located on the rear panel. 03 - Second measurement channel; the channel, trigger and calibrator connectors are located on the rear panel. 05 - TTL External Trigger Level. 04 – Delay by Events trigger qualifier.

Averaging is a mathematical process to reduce the variation in a measurement by summing the data points from multiple measurements and dividing by the number of points summed.

Jitter in technical terms is the deviation in or displacement of some aspect of the pulses in a high-frequency digital signal. Jitter is the time variation of a periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. Jitter may be observed in characteristics such as the frequency of successive pulses, the signal amplitude, or phase of periodic signals. Jitter is a significant, and usually undesired, factor in the design of almost all communications links (e.g., USB, PCI-e, SATA, OC-48). In clock recovery applications it is called timing jitter.

Pulse Power
Pulse Power, the energy transfer rate is averaged over the pulse width. Pulse width is considered to be the time between the 50 percent risetime/falltime amplitude points. Pulse power averages out any aberrations in the pulse envelope such as overshoot or ringing.
