signal generator

[′sig·nəl ‚jen·ə‚rād·ər]
(engineering)
An electronic test instrument that delivers a sinusoidal output at an accurately calibrated frequency that may be anywhere from the audio to the microwave range; the frequency and amplitude are adjustable over a wide range, and the output usually may be amplitude- or frequency-modulated. Also known as test oscillator.
