M9302A PXI Local Oscillator

Data Sheets

Data Sheet



The Keysight Technologies, Inc. M9302A PXI Local Oscillator (LO) is optimized for fast settling time to allow for fast frequency down conversion in Aerospace and Defense applications such as radar and wideband signal capture, and in wireless communications applications. 

Product description

The M9302A is a two-slot 3U PXI VCO-based 3 GHz to 10 GHz LO. The fast switching time and low phase noise of this LO make it an ideal component of a microwave vector signal analyzer. 

When integrated in the Keysight M9392A PXI Vector Signal Analyzer, and combined with the 89600 VSA software, the M9302A becomes a part of a complete signal analysis solution enabling analysis of communications, radar and avionics signals to 26.5 GHz in a modular open-system standard.

Hardware platform


The M9302A is PXI compliant, using either a cPCI(J1), PXI-1, or PXIe Hybrid slot. Designed to benefit from fast data interfaces, the products can be integrated with other test and automation modules in cPCI(J1), PXI-1, or PXIe Hybrid chassis slots.

The PXI format offers high performance in a small, rugged package. It is an ideal deployment platform for many automated test systems. 

A wide array of complementary PXI products are currently available. Products include multimeters, waveform generators, local oscillators, digitizers, and switch multiplexers. 

Software platform 

IO libraries 

Keysight IO Libraries Suite offers FAST and EASY connection to instruments and the newest version extends that capability to include modular instruments. 

The Keysight IO Libraries Suite helps you display ALL of the modules in your system, whether they are PXI, PXIe, or PCIe. 

From here you can view information about the installed software or start the module’s soft front panel. Launch the module’s soft front panel directly from Keysight Connection Expert. Find the right driver from Keysight Connection Expert. 


Keysight provides instrument drivers that work with your choice of software that saves time and preserves software and hardware investments.

Keysight modular instruments come with IVI-COM, IVI-C, LabVIEW and MATLAB software drivers that work in the most popular T&M development environments including, Visual Studio (VB.NET, C#, C/C++), VEE, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and MATLAB. 

With the multiple drivers included and minimum software adjustments, any Keysight PXI local oscillator can be swapped out, replaced, or upgraded with the latest PXI local oscillator. 

Easy software integration

Included are application code examples for VisualStudio (VB.NET, C#, C/C++), VEE, LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and MATLAB which provide local oscillator set-up and basic acquisition functionality. These application code examples are easily modified to quickly integrate the module into your measurement system. 

Software applications

Keysight soft front panels provide easy to use instrument communications for diagnostics and basic hardware setup. The M9302A’s graphical user interface guides developers through module setup. Users can quickly configure the instrument parameters.

More sophisticated functions are available through the instrument’s numerous programmatic interfaces. The M9302A supports interfaces for Visual Studio, MATLAB, and LabVIEW. The interfaces are implemented using the IVI standard supporting both IVI-COM and IVI-C.
