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 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

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

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 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 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

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 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

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

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

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

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

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

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. LabView driver is planned for late 2012.

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.

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

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

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

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

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

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 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

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

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).
