Keysight Agilent HP 83712B

83712B Agilent RF Generator

10 MHz to 20 GHz Signal Generator

The 83712B is a 20 GHz RF Generator from Agilent. 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.

Keysight Agilent HP 83712B Features:

  • High stability time base for frequency accuracy
  • Low SSB phase noise for out-of-channel tests
  • High power output for driving the LO port of mixers
  • Low output power with option 1E1 for receiver sensitivity and SINAD measurement

The Keysight Agilent HP 83712B is a 20 GHz Synthesized CW Generator that sets a new standard for performance at a price that is surprisingly affordable. No longer will you have to give up frequency coverage, modulation or reliability to meet your budget. The Keysight Agilent HP 83712B signal source will perform beyond your expectations at a price within your reach. Fundamental oscillators and switched low-pass filters deliver <-55 dBc harmonics, eliminate subharmonics and suppress spurious to <-60 dBc. The Keysight Agilent HP 83712B signal source provides plenty of output power (typically >+14 dBm), while spectral purity is maintained even at high power levels (typical output power at frequencies below 1 GHz is +20 dBm).
Option Description:
1E1: Adds 110 dB output step attenuator
1E5: Hi Stability Reference
1E8: 1 Hz frequency resolution
1E9: 3.5 mm RF output connector
