N8212A performance vector upconverter synthetic instrument module is a vector microwave source with greater than 1 GHz I/Q modulation bandwidth to generate a stimulus signal by upconverting a baseband signal. It features superior AM, FM, phase and pulse modulation capabilities (external or internal modulation). The N8212A is based upon the PSG vector signal generator.
The synthetic instrument family offers the highest-performing RF/MW LAN-based modular instrumentation and the smallest footprint for automated test systems (ATSs); providing the maximum flexibility, and minimizing the cost of an ATS over its lifetime.
