Highlights

Speed, Performance and Multichannel Capability

The M9381A PXIe vector signal generator (PXI VSG) is a compact modular instrument that provides frequency coverage from 1 MHz to 6 GHz and works seamlessly with the M9391A PXIe vector signal analyzer (PXI VSA). The PXI VSG reduces test time with fast amplitude and frequency switching and versatile list mode optimized for manufacturing test.

 

Optimized for RF device design validation and manufacturing test environments, the M9381A PXI VSG delivers a combination of speed, performance, and multichannel capability. Built on a flexible, scalable modular platform, the M9381A PXI VSG is the low-risk way to manage change and be ready for tomorrow—today.

  • Choose RF modulation bandwidth: 40, 100, or 160 MHz, and easily upgrade as test needs change
  • Increase throughput with fast RF frequency tuning and amplitude switching for high-speed automated test
  • Easily integrate into test environments with IVI-COM, IVI-C, LabVIEW, and MATLAB drivers
  • Scalable platform fits up to 4 channels in one chassis, and 8 channels in multi-chassis configuration
  • Channels time synchronized to within 1 ns and phase coherent to within 1 degree
  • Simplify signal creation with Keysight’s PathWave Signal Generation software

Be Ready for Tomorrow — Today 

The flexible, modular design of the M9381A enables you to:

  • Pair with the M9391A PXIe vector signal analyzer for a complete solution for optimized for RF manufacturing test environment
  • Scale to multi-channel signal generation to test multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) devices
  • Easily upgrade memory, frequency range, and modulation bandwidth
