Applications

All-purpose RF Source

Wide frequency range covers the main frequency bands for RF applications such as radio and television, mobile, wireless networks, and radio-relay communications. This makes possible to use the generator for debugging and testing for all systems listed above. High output power compensates for additional level loss on the way to the DUT. Convenient user interface, large control elements and high-contrast display make it easy to obtain the desired signal at the RF output. Graphic display based on organic LEDs enables operation at low ambient temperatures. Small dimensions save precious rack mount space allowing to place two devices horizontally with 2U height.

Arbitrary Reference Frequency Generator

Small frequency step combined with low phase noise in low bands allows to use the generator as an arbitrary reference frequency source while testing the deviation tolerance of symbol clock rates and local oscillators of communication systems. Low phase noise at low output frequencies is possible due to frequency dividers used up to the lower bound of the frequency range instead of frequency conversion from high to low range.

One-decibel Compression Point  Measurement for High-power Output Stages

High output level enables one-decibel compression point and saturated power  measurements without additional pre-amplifiers. Usually high-power output stages have relatively small gain, so availability of high power at the generator's output sufficiently simplifies the testing process.

Second and Third Order Intercept Point  and  measurements

High spectral purity, low nonlinear distortion of output stage, and high output level compensating for additional losses in attenuators before power combiner, enable intermodulation parameters measurements of almost any RF path.

RF-path Frequency Response Measurements

Good frequency response flatness in wide frequency band due to AGC and digital correction systems allows to run scalar network analysis of DUT.

Debugging of the RF Transceiver blocks for Telecommunication and Test&Measurement Equipment

Low level of nonharmonics and phase noise makes it possible to use generator in debugging of spur-sensitive test&measurements RF paths. Exceptional spectral purity, i.e. sub-harmonics and nonharmonic spur absence, is essential while debugging and testing wideband test&measurement devices which are sensitive to spurs, for example spectrum analyzers and measurement receivers. It saves a lot of time and resources while detecting and analyzing spurs and other unwanted effects in the devices under test.

High output level also enables to use it as a local oscillator for passive balanced mixers, which usually require high power for ensuring better linearity of the path.

When debugging some systems, it is required that several LO sources in the same path are bound to some reference by natural factor. And reference frequency may significantly differ from standard series of references offered by most signal generators. In this case SG8 can use any frequency as a reference, making no demands to its stability or precision.

Test&Measurement Automation

External control interfaces (RS-232, USB) and sufficiently fast frequency settling time allow automation of the testing process in volume production, and usage of the generator in scientific laboratories where equipment is usually combined to one complex controlled by PC.
