Generate RF Test Signals up to 6 GHz

Option 506 equips the Keysight MXG vector to generate signals in a 100 kHz to 6 GHz frequency range.

Typical Application

Option 506 is recommended for test cases that require CW, analog modulated, and vector modulated RF test signals at or below 6 GHz carrier frequencies. This option is ideal for popular communications systems in the cellular and ISM frequency bands, such as W-CDMA, cdma2000®, WLAN, and WiMAX™. Common signal generation uses include LO and clock substitution, interference generation, and reference signal generation for analog and digital components and receivers.

This option cannot be added as a product upgrade – only available at time of purchase.
