Widest frequency range (250 kHz to 20 GHz) with 0.01 Hz frequency resolution - standard
Highest power available (+13/+20) at 20 GHz with excellent level accuracy (0.7 and 0.9 dB)
SSB phase noise is -110 dBc/Hz at 20 kHz offset at 10 GHz carrier
Optional SSB phase noise is -98 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset at 10 GHz carrier
Digital Sweep functions (list and step) with capability of calibrating every point at the test port using the user flatness correction
Easy frequency extension to 110 GHz using the 83550 series Millimeter-Wave Source Modules
The Performance Signal Generator Series offers accurate characterization of products and eliminates the need of an external amplifier for testing high power devices. The PSG series provides 20 dBm at 20 GHz (option 1EA) reducing overall equipment and test costs. The superior level accuracy of the PSG Series (+/- 0.7 dB) reduces test uncertainties and improves production throughput. Standard products have phase noise performance of -85 dBc/Hz at 1khz offset and -110 dBc/Hz at 20 kHz offset and a 10 GHz carrier. The PSG provides improved performance with option UNJ of -98 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset and -110 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and a 10 GHz carrier. The new PSG series guarantees accurate evaluation of devices, errors can be pinpointed early on in the design process thus resulting in a reduced development time.
