N5182B MXG X-Series RF vector high-performance signal generators are fine-tuned to be your “golden transmitter” in R&D with 9 kHz to 6 GHz frequency coverage.

Already own a performance signal generator?

Trade in your current signal generator or a competitor's model and get a credit up to 50% toward a new N5171/2B, N5181/2B, N5173B, or N5183B signal generator.


9 kHz - 3 GHz MXG Vector High-Performance Signal Generator

The Keysight N5182B analog and vector MXG and EXG signal generators deliver unmatched performance in five key categories: phase noise and spectral purity, bandwidth, EVM, ACPR, and output power. 

Perform advanced receiver testing compatible with the latest standards using the MXG or EXG and Signal Studio software: define signal parameters, transfer them to the instrument, and use closed-loop or interactive control during signal generation.

  • Take your designs to their limit with outstanding hardware performance, including unmatched phase noise and spurious characteristics.
  • Drive power amplifiers and characterize nonlinear behavior with industry-leading adjacent channel power ratio (ACPR) and output power.
  • Test wideband devices with factory-equalized 160 MHz RF bandwidth.
  • Reduce the time spent on signal creation with PathWave Signal Generation software, including LTE, WLAN, and GNSS.
  • Lower your cost of ownership with 3-year cal cycles and comprehensive solutions for self-maintenance.
