Will there be drivers available for the N5181B or N5182B X-Series signal generators?
Yes, 32 and 64 Bit IVI com, IVI C and MATLAB drivers are available. LabView driver is planned for late 2012.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Does Option UNU, pulse modulation, exist on the X-Series signal generators?
No, Option UNW, narrow pulse, is the only pulse option.

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

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

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.

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

Can customers use custom digital modulation in ARB mode?
Yes, but the data will be a fixed, random pattern.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can waveforms be writable to removable SD card so customers do not have to take apart instrument to remove internal hard drive?
Yes, this capability is available through security Option 006.

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

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

Are the function generators all inside the MXG and EXG X-Series signal generators?
Yes, with Option 303, multifunction generator. See the data sheets for full capabilities.

FAQ 2012-04-30

How can I program the N5102A DSIM on the N5182B MXG or N5172B EXG X-Series signal generator?
The DSIM is planned to be available late 2012. The DSIM is programmed from the front panel of the MXG, just like the ESG, no external PC needed.

FAQ 2012-04-30

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

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

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

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

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

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can you bypass the internal reference chain with clean rubidium source on the X-Series signal generators?
The 10 MHz path is very clean and works with an external reference. The 1-50 MHz tunable path is noisier, see the data sheets for more details.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Does N5181B or N5182B MXG Option UNY/UNX have backward code compatibility with E8663D or 8663D signal generators?
Yes, the N5181B and N5182B MXG Option UNY/UNX has the same SCPI as PSG E8663D. E8663D is the replacement of 8663D with BWCC (backward code compatibility).

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

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

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

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
