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 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

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

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

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 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

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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

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

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

How can I generate TETRA and DECT signal for basic interference testing in many compliance test houses, which are bursted, just like the real standard
You can use PRAM to simulate spectrally correct signals for TETRA and DECT for bursted signals. See the X-Series User’s Guide for further information.

FAQ 2012-04-30

Can we add a SCPI logger/history for past few commands on the X-Series signal generators?
Yes, we have this capability.
