Keysight Agilent HP 8780A

8780A Agilent RF Generator

10 MHz to 3000 MHz, Vector Signal Generator

The 8780A is a 3 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 8780A Features:

  • 10 MHz to 3 GHz IF testing
  • BPSK, QPSK, 8PSK, 16QAM, 64QAM, digital modulation and pulse
  • Direct-sequence spread spectrum modulation with chip widths to 7 ns
  • Pulse modulation with 1 ns rise times
  • 700 MHz modulation bandwidth using I/Q or vector
  • Wideband FM: over 200 MHz p-p deviations
  • Optional analog phase modulation for satellite telemetry

The Keysight Agilent HP 8780A vector signal generator is a synthesized IF source with exceptional modulation for modern receiver and component testing. This signal generator is capable of modulation bandwidths almost 100 times wider than previous synthesizers. It is built-in mapping to simplify generation of common digital modulation formats. The Keysight Agilent HP 8780A`s extra-wide modulation bandwidth comes from a vector modulator that effectively doubles baseband modulation bandwidths for 700 MHz of output modulation.
