Anritsu Company introduced the MG3740A analog signal generator
that outputs AM/FM/(DM test signals for evaluation of narrowband analog radio equipment used in public safety networks and private commercial networks.
The 20 GHz high performance vector upconverter module offers greater than 1 GHz modulation bandwidth, based on the PSG vector signal generator and the 20/40 GHz analog upconverter module, based on the PSG analog signal generator
. The 26.5 GHz high performance analog downconverter module offers greater than 170 dB of measurement range with a good noise floor, based on the PSA series spectrum analyzer.
Highlights include a new high-power, low-noise analog signal generator
and several arbitrary waveform generators.
Rohde & Schwarz added two new frequency options--the R&S SMB B112 and R&S SMB B112L--to its SMB100A analog signal generator
Whereas an analog signal generator
uses an oscillator to produce continuous waveforms, a DDS signal source, or arbitrary waveform generator (AWG), creates analog waveforms from discrete data points.
"One application for the S-Series SGA Analog Signal Generator
(Figure 3) is the testing of analog-to-digital converters." An ADC has two input ports, its analog signal input and its clock input, that are critically susceptible to jitter and other spurious artifacts.
has announced the availability of its E8663B analog signal generator
, which allows for the effective characterization of high-resolution radar and electronic warfare systems and components.
From $6,900 for the EXG N5171B Analog Signal Generator
to $19,320 for the MXG N5182B Vector Signal Generator.
