Tektronix TSG4102A E1

TSG4102A E1 Tektronix RF Generator

2GHz Analog Signal Generator with OCXO time base and GPIB

The TSG4102A E1 is a 2 GHz RF Generator from Tektronix. An rf generator is a tool engineers use to generate sinusoidal outputs while testing electronic equipment. The output will automatically have its frequency varied or swept between frequencies. A “sweep” is one complete cycle of a frequency variation. Engineers use rf signal generators as test equipment, mostly to measure responses of filters, amplifiers, and electrical components.

The Tektronix TSG4102A E1  RF Vector Signal Generator offers mid-range performance and up to 200 MHz modulation bandwidth at an entry-level RF signal generator price. This signal generator uses a new technique to provide spurious free outputs with low phase noise (-113 dBc/Hz at 20 kHz offset from 1 GHz carrier) and extraordinary frequency resolution (1 μHz at any frequency).

The Tektronix TSG4102A E1 comes standard with analog modulation. Convenient, in-field software upgrades allow for easy transition from analog to more advanced vector and digital modulation capabilities, providing the most flexible configuration and best CAPEX protection. This instrument complements other leading mid-range RF test solutions from Tektronix, such as the USB-based RSA306 Spectrum Analyzer and MDO4000B and MDO3000 Mixed Domain Oscilloscopes.The Tektronix TSG4100A Series instruments use an ovenized SC-cut oscillator (TSG410xA-M00 or E1 models) time-base, providing a 100 X improvement in stability (and a 100 X reduction in the in-close phase noise) compared to instruments that use a TCXO time-base.
