Hi -

The PSA Spectrum Analyzer doesn’t have a specified lifetime.

The PSA began shipping December 2000, and the vast majority of instruments made back then are still in operation.

The parts most susceptible to wear out in the PSA are the mechanical attenuators; they typically last about six to seven years with normal usage.

Nevertheless, the PSA can be serviced world-wide at the Agilent service centers.
