Agilent 54753A Single Ended TDR/TDT for the Agilent 54750A High-Bandwidth Digitizing Oscilloscope
The HP 54753A is a two-channel vertical plug-in with a TDR step generator built into channel one. The bandwidth of the TDR/vertical channel is 18 GHZ. The bandwidth of channel two is 20 GHz. The step generator provides a 200 mV TDR step with a system rise time of <45 ps. The system has the ability to normalize the
TDR by applying a digital filter. Normalization removes errors caused by loss or imperfect launchers or cables.
The rise time of the normalization filter may be varied to allow you to simulate the edge speeds found in your system. You may also push the rise time up to 10 ps. Unlike the HP 54120 series, the normalization filter when activated processes every acquisi-tion so you see changes as the DUT is adjusted.
The HP 54753A provides support for external step generators, such as the PicoSecond Pulse Labs 4015C.
