SG40XX Series Frequency Agile Signal Generator

SG40XX series frequency agile signal generators have a wideband frequency hopping function. The signal frequency switching time within the entire output frequency band range reaches 1us, and the fastest signal jump speed can reach 100,000 times per second. It is the fastest frequency switching in commercial analog signal sources. The fastest signal source can be used in antenna test systems, radar tests, satellite load tests and other systems that require multi-frequency testing, which can greatly improve the test efficiency of the test system. The frequency agile signal source meets wide frequency coverage, the output frequency range is 10MHz to 24/40GHz, the frequency step is 0.01Hz, the signal output dynamic range is -110~+15dBm, and the power adjustment step is 0.1dB. As a standard test and measurement equipment, it also has the characteristics of excellent output signal spectral purity, low phase noise and high clutter suppression. It is also suitable for various test environments that require high-quality source signals. The control interface of the signal source supports various interface forms such as LAN and RS422, and supports the SCPI standard command set, making it easy for users to complete the test system construction.

Applications: Simulating increasingly complex signal environments in radar, electronic warfare and antenna testing/Testing electronic warfare systems faster and more accurately/Fast antenna and RCS testing/Fast production line testing/Fast automatic test systems (ATE)/Multi-channel reception testing / Phased array/array antenna calibration.
