Extension of the frequency range up to 500 MHz for FRA and antenna analyzer modes
(homemade add-on)

The device in the FRA and AA modes can operate on the harmonics of the generator signal. To obtain a high level of harmonics in the spectrum, you can use a rectangular pulse shaper using digital logic from the LVC family. The fast slew rate of the ICs provides a high level of odd harmonics in the output signal even at high frequencies.

High impedance FET probe
(homemade add-on)

High-speed (500 MHz) FET operational amplifier OPA653 is used. The attenuation ratio is 1x (one-to-one), the input capacitance is about 4 pF.
