A New Efficient, Cost-Effective Solution To RF Signal Generation

- Advertisement -

A harmonious blend of size, speed, and cost-effectiveness, engineered for precision and efficiency in microwave and millimetre wave testing in R&D or production environments.

Siglent has introduced the SSG6000A series, a radio frequency (RF) signal generator adept at fulfilling the demands of microwave and millimetre wave testing. It emerges as a viable alternative, striking a balanced chord between size, speed, and cost. This makes it particularly appropriate for projects prioritising program efficiency yet operating within confined testing budgets and spaces.

The device accommodates amplitude modulation (AM) and pulse modulation, along with functionalities like a pulse sequence generator and power meter control. Its embedded standard OCXO (Oven Controlled Crystal (Xtal) Oscillator) reference hardware module guarantees the delivery of signals with high precision and stability. Serving not only as an optimal local oscillator and clock source but also doubles as a superior analog signal source. It is well-suited for various application settings, including R&D and production environments. The principal specifications encompass:

  • Frequency up to 13.6 GHz/ 20 GHz/ 40 GHz
  • Level setting range: -130 dBm ~ 24 dBm
  • Level error ≤ 0.7 dB (typ.)
  • Standard AM modulation
  • Standard OCXO and step attenuator (0 to 110 dB, 10dB step)
  • Frequency resolution 0.01 Hz
  • Amplitude resolution 0.01 dB
  • Maximum output power + 22 dBm

It offers clear signals from 100 kHz to 40 GHz, even at high power outputs, with phase and minimal broadband noise, focusing on precise device testing. It exhibits frequency and power stability between 0-50℃, which is vital for long-term tests. With an output power of +22 dBm, it facilitates testing high-power devices without extra amplifiers, ensuring accuracy and stability while compensating for system loss. It’s perfect for evaluating broadband microwave components such as filters and amplifiers.

It supports AM and pulse modulation, power meter control and other functions, including a versatile pulse train generator for extended pulse train testing. It can adapt to rapid broadband testing with adjustable pulse widths, pauses, and step/list scanning modes.
