SGX1000 RF Signal Generators

The SGX1000 series of RF signal generators offer high performance signal generation with an easy-to-use interface in a compact form factor. The SGX1000 utilizes a proprietary blend of direct digital and direct analog synthesis to provide ultra-fine frequency resolution, lightning-fast frequency switching, ultra-low phase noise and jitter, and superior reliability.

The instrument’s intuitive, multi-touch display enables easy access and configuration to perform frequency and/or power sweeps as well as apply amplitude, frequency, phase and pulse modulation to address a wide variety of test requirements.

  • Superior reliability – MTBF (synthesizer module): >240,000

Understanding the Basics of RF Signal Generation

RF signal generators have been a staple in test and measurement for more than a half century. During that time, they have evolved significantly, but the underlying principles remain the same. This whitepaper provides an overview of the basic construction of RF signal generators and the associated figures of merit.


Principles of RF Power Measurement

A primer on RF and Microwave Power measurements

RF Power measurement techniques have evolved considerably since the earliest days of wireless. “Principles of RF Power Measurements” provides the reader an in depth guide to key methodologies for measuring CW, average and peak RF power signals using thermistor, diode detector, RF receiver-based, direct RF sampling, and monolithic IC techniques.
