N5193A

UXG Agile Signal Generator

10 MHz to 20 or 40 GHz

Definitions and Conditions

Specification (spec): represents warranted performance of a calibrated instrument that has been stored for a minimum of 2 hours within the operating temperature range of 0 to 55 °C, unless otherwise stated, and after a 1 hour warm-up period. The specifications include measurement uncertainty. Data represented in this document are specifications unless otherwise noted.

Typical (typ): describes additional product performance information. It is performance beyond specifications that 80% of the units exhibit with a 95% confidence level at room temperature (approximately 25 °C). Typical performance does not include measurement uncertainty.

Nominal (nom): describes the expected mean or average performance, or an attribute whose performance is by design, such as the 50 Ω connector. This data is not warranted and is measured at room temperature (approximately 25 °C).

Measured (meas): describes an attribute measured during the design phase for purposes of communicating expected performance, such as amplitude drift vs. time. This data is not warranted and is measured at room temperature (approximately 25 °C).

All of the above apply when using the instrument in its default settings unless otherwise stated.

This data sheet provides a summary of the key performance parameters for the N5193A UXG Agile Signal Generator. All options referenced in this data sheet are described in the UXG configuration guide (5992-1116EN).

Unless otherwise noted, this data sheet applies to units with serial numbers ending with 5646xxxx or greater and firmware revision A.01.86.

Synchronization

Multiple UXG units can be synchronized together to have phase coherent outputs. This is useful for simulating angle-of-arrival (AoA) and phased array antenna wavefronts.

Normal mode

Normal mode is optimized for maximum update rate (throughput). If the fast control port (FCP) Option CC1, CC3, or CC4 is installed, it provides the capability to use pulse descriptor words (PDWs) to control frequency, amplitude, phase, pulse (include chirp or phase coding), and FM or M. With CC1, the PDW is streamed into the rear-panel FCP 100-pin connector using 46-bit wide control words. The control word information is executed synchronously upon receipt of a trigger.

Fast CW mode

Fast CW mode is optimized for minimum latency. The FCP control over signal attributes is limited to CW frequency switching and the addition of FM/ M provided this option was purchased. It is typically used with the FCP Option CC2 for compatibility with instruments used in legacy test systems. When using the CC1 interface card, Option FR1 is required.

PDW Streaming mode

Streaming provides agile control of most of the instrument settings via a continuous stream of PDWs transferred from the internal SSD or an external source, such as a LAN or the Fast Control Port (with Option CC3 or CC4). The set of parameters controlled by Streaming include frequency, frequency band map, band adjust, relative power, phase, phase mode, pulse width, pulse start time, FM (chirp) and PM (phase coding). Each PDW consists of seven 32-bit words. The streaming PDW parameters are executed asynchronously, based on the time stamp information contained within the PDW. Option PM1 is required to stream.
