The Keysight N5183A MXG is a microwave analog signal generator that offers high performance, reliability and versatility for various applications. The MXG can generate signals from 100 kHz to 40 GHz with low phase noise, high output power and excellent level accuracy. The MXG also supports various analog modulation types, such as AM, FM, phase and pulse modulation, as well as fast frequency and amplitude switching. The MXG can be configured with different options and accessories to meet specific customer needs. Some of the key features and benefits of the MXG are: Wide frequency range from 100 kHz to 40 GHz, covering most microwave applications High output power up to +24 dBm, enabling testing of high-power devices and systems Low single sideband phase noise of –86 dBc/Hz at 10 GHz and 20 kHz offset, ensuring signal quality and measurement accuracy Fast frequency switching speed of < 900 μs (with Option UNZ), reducing test time and increasing throughput Flexible analog modulation capabilities, such as AM, FM, phase and pulse modulation, enabling simulation of various signal impairments and modulation schemes Internal pulse generator (with Option UNU or UNW), providing convenient generation of complex pulse patterns Pulse train generator (with Option 320), allowing creation of up to 2047 custom pulse patterns Instrument security (with Option 006), enabling memory sanitizing, memory sanitizing on power on, and display blanking for data protection Multiple remote programming interfaces, such as GPIB, LAN and USB, supporting SCPI commands and compatibility languages for easy integration and automation Three-year warranty, providing peace of mind and lower cost of ownership The MXG can be ordered with different frequency options: Option 520 (100 kHz to 20 GHz), Option 532 (100 kHz to 31.8 GHz) or Option 540 (100 kHz to 40 GHz). Other performance enhancements, such as high power (Option 1EA), step attenuator (Option 1E1), fast frequency switching (Option UNZ), narrow pulse modulation (Option UNW) and flexible reference input (Option 1ER) can also be added. Accessories, such as rackmount kit, front handle kit, transit case and adapters are also available.
