Can you change the attenuation on external I and Q individually on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators?
Yes, improved over the first-generation MXG.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can we upgrade N5181A or N5182A first-generation MXG to an N5181B or N5181B MXG X-Series signal generator?
No, there is not a hardware upgrade path from the first-generation MXG to MXG X-Series signal generator.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Will the MXG and EXG X-Series signal generator work with the analyzers for ESC (external source control)?
They will not work at the time of introduction. The next version of the X-Series signal analyzer firmware (late 2012) should support the analog versions. The vector versions are to be added in the future, but the timing is undetermined.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can we support atmospheric conditions with N7609B GPS on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators?
Yes.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can we get user defined data in ARB mode?
No, it is the same random pattern as in first-generation N5181A MXG. Real-time custom modulation has user defined data.

FAQ 2012-04-30

What is the size and format of the removable memory (SD card) on the X-Series signal generators?
8 GB SD card, RAW storage. This is available with Option 006 instrument security and removable memory card.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Is Option 300, GSM/EDGE Base-station loop-back test capability, going to be available on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators?
No, Option 300 will not be added to the X-Series signal generator instruments.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Is BER available on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators?
No, Option UN7, Internal Bit Error Rate Analyzer, is not available at introduction.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Is the pulse generator specification still the same with ALC On/Off on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, it still cuts off at <2µs, however, open loop power accuracy has improved with or without power search being run. In most cases, you will see tenths of dB accuracy without running power search. This is a significant improvement over first-generation MXG.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can customer scale output attenuation in IQ mod N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generator?
Yes, by using runtime scaling or IQ attenuator.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Does Option 320 require that I have Option UNU or UNW on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, Option 320, pulse train generator, requires Option UNW, narrow pulse modulation. Option UNU, pulse modulation, is not an option on the X-Series signal generators.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Does Option UNY, enhanced low phase noise, require Option UNX, low phase noise,on the X-Series signal generators?
No, they are independent options with different levels of phase noise performance above 3 GHz.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Will we be able to have more than 2 USB power sensors on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, we are able to connect to 4.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Is the output power improved on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, specified output power changed from +23 dBm to +24 dBm for MXG. For both MXG and EXG X-Series signal generators, standard output power has improved significantly. See the data sheet for more details.

FAQ 2012-04-30

What does the S/N mode affect negatively on the X-Series signal generators? Why not leave it on all the time?
The harmonics can degrade with S/N mode on.

FAQ 2012-04-30

What are the plans to upgrade the N5102A DSIM, if I want it to go to 160 MHz BW on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators?
DSIM will be able to run up to 200MSa/sec.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Is the tuning speed the same as switching speed on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, switching speed is the same as tuning speed.

FAQ 2012-04-30

What is the maximum size user file that can be played real-time on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generator?
For real-time custom modulation, it is 1024 MSa for the MXG and 512 MSa for the EXG. For real-time signal studio applications, it is up to 4 GB. Refer to specific Signal Studio Application for detailed specifications.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Will Options 430, 431 and 432 require Option 656 but not require Option 660 for ARB capability?
Yes, this is true for the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators.

FAQ 2012-04-30

What is the OS (operating system) of the X-Series signal generators?
Windows® CE

FAQ 2012-04-30

Do the new sources de-crypt waveforms in the same way as the legacy sources? Can we just use pre-existing waveforms?
Yes. First-generation MXG N5182A Signal Studio N76xxB waveforms will play in new sources. Exception will be N7613A Signal Studio for Fixed WiMAX which has the legacy N76xxA structure.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Is the phase coherency supported on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, with Option 012, LO in/out for phase coherency.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Will the N5171B and N5172B EXG X-Series signal generator have an OCXO option for improved drift rate?
No

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can you master/slave MXG and EXG or must they all be the same model number?
You can master/slave first generation MXG N5182A with the N5182B MXG and N5172B EXG X-Series signal generators. The N5172B or N5182B must be the master.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Do we offer an external divider option to cover the heterodyne band phase noise performance on the X-Series signal generators?
We have the 70429A-K95 divider that can be used as an external divider for frequencies <250 MHz.
