A long-lost friend, and so very helpful
An LCR meter allows you to easily measure the values and loss factors of inductors and capacitors at one or more frequencies. However, if these components need to handle broadband signals it is desirable to know their characteristics over a wide frequency range. That’s where an impedance analyzer comes in handy. With this instrument you can produce a chart of the impedance and loss factors over a wide frequency range.
