The Noise Com NC346A is designed for precision noise figure measurement applications. The VSWR has been improved, reducing multiple reflections of the test signals and significantly increasing the measurement accuracy of most noise figure set-ups. The NC346 Series noise sources have broadband coverage and extremely good temperature and voltage stability, for the finest noise figure meter-compatible laboratory standards.
