A replacement for this product is available:


Generate analog modulated signals at microwave frequencies
Selecting Option 540 provides 250 kHz to 40 GHz frequency range for the PSG and enables the generation of continuous wave (CW) or analog modulated signals at microwave carrier frequencies. The PSG is a premier signal generator able to produce high fidelity, low noise waveforms for a variety of applications.

Typical applications
Option 540 is required for signal generation applications that call for carrier frequencies at or below 40 GHz. Common uses include test stimulus generation for component and receiver test in point-to-point and point-to-multipoint broadband wireless communications systems, radar and electronic warfare systems, and satellite systems.

How to upgrade
A customer installable upgrade kit does not exist for this option.

  • AM, FM, ØM and Pulse analog modulation formats
  • 250 kHz to 40 GHz frequency
  • .001 Hz frequency resolution
  • 12 ms frequency switching speed (typical)
  • High output power
