Keysight (Agilent) 86118A

70 GHz, Dual Remote Sampling Head
Contact us for pricing and availability.
With over 70 GHz of electrical bandwidth, the 86118A provides one of the fastest channel performance available today. A well behaved frequency response minimizes attenuation of the signal spectrum and maintains fast edge speeds. The 86118A is a unique module for the 86100 Infiniium digital communications analyzer because the sampling electronics are located in a small, lightweight housing that can be placed up to 2 meters away from the mainframe to minimize loss through cabling.

In order to measure differential signals option 86118A-H01 is highly recommended. It provides less than 65 ps skew between the two channels and alignment capability within 150 ps.
