* Options 082 and 083 are mutually exclusive. Option 082 is a lower cost, lower function version of option 083. There is no upgrade available from option 082 to option 083.

** Options 028 and 029 are mutually exclusive. Option 028 makes non-match corrected noise figure measurements with the standard receivers. Option 029 adds a dedicated noise receiver which is more accurate and the ability to correct for source match. There is no upgrade set up from option 028 to option 029. In this case, Keysight will discount the price of option 028 from the option 029 upgrade kit.


Additional Options: Some options are listed in the About Network Analyzer dialog which are not shown above. Option 081, Reference Channel Transfer Switch, and 014, Configurable Test Set, come as standard equipment on all PNA-X analyzers. Option Pxx, Number of Test Ports, and Sxx, Number of Internal Sources, are determined by other hardware settings and are not user-settable. Options UNL and 016 are listed for cross-compatibility with older PNA option sets. These options are bundled together as option 219 or 419 on the PNA-X.
