Highlights

Speed, Performance and Multichannel Capability

Optimized for RF device design validation and manufacturing test environments, the M9381A PXI VSG delivers a combination of speed, performance, and multichannel capability. Built on a flexible, scalable modular platform, the M9381A PXI VSG is the low-risk way to manage change and be ready for tomorrow—today.

 

  • Choose RF modulation bandwidth: 40, 100, or 160 MHz, and easily upgrade as test needs change
  • Increase throughput with fast RF frequency tuning and amplitude switching for high-speed automated test
  • Easily integrate into test environments with IVI-COM, IVI-C, LabVIEW, and MATLAB drivers
  • Scalable platform fits up to 4 channels in one chassis, and 8 channels in multi-chassis configuration
  • Channels time synchronized to within 1 ns and phase coherent to within 1 degree
  • Simplify signal creation with Keysight’s PathWave Signal Generation software

Be Ready for Tomorrow — Today 

The flexible, modular design of the M9381A enables you to:

  • Pair with the M9391A PXIe vector signal analyzer for a complete solution for optimized for RF manufacturing test environment
  • Scale to multi-channel signal generation to test multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) devices
  • Easily upgrade memory, frequency range, and modulation bandwidth
