Power Detector compatible with Agilent 8756A NetworkAnalyzer - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

Hello Ashish and welcome to the TM Forum,

This NA is obsolete. The detectors for use with this NA are the 11664A/B series. The link below is to the user manual. It lists all the measurement components used with this NA. I suggest downloading it (pdf) for future reference. Agilent has a habit of removing obsolete equipment documentation without notice.

Good Luck,

Thank you for your your help. I know that the NA is obselete, however I have no other option. I want to know whether there is any other Power Detector which can be used with this SNA(8756) and also will be useful when I upgrade to a better SNA

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
