Keysight Agilent HP E8241A

E8241A Agilent RF Generator

250 kHz to 20 GHz Signal Generator

The E8241A 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 E8241A Features:

  • Widest frequency range (250 kHz to 20 GHz) with 0.01 Hz frequency resolution - standard
  • Highest power available (+13/+20) at 20 GHz with excellent level accuracy (0.7 and 0.9 dB)
  • SSB phase noise is -110 dBc/Hz at 20kHz offset at 10 GHz carrier
  • Optional SSB phase noise is -98 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset at 10 GHz carrier
  • Long warranty 1-year standard and 5-year optional
  • Digital Sweep functions (list and step) with capability of calibrating every point at the test port using the user flatness correction

PSG-L Series Performance The Keysight Agilent HP Performance Signal Generator E8241A offers accurate characterization of products and eliminates the need of an external amplifier for testing high power devices. The PSG series provides 20 dBm at 20 GHz (option 1EA) reducing overall equipment and test costs. The superior level accuracy of the Keysight Agilent HP E8241A (+/- 0.7 dB) reduces test uncertainties and improves production throughput. Standard products have phase noise performance of -85 dBc/Hz at 1khz offset and -110 dBc/Hz at 20 kHz offset and a 10 GHz carrier. The Keysight Agilent HP E8241A provides improved performance with option UNJ of -98 dBc/Hz at 1 kHz offset and -110 dBc/Hz at 10 kHz offset and a 10 GHz carrier. The new PSG series guarantees accurate evaluation of devices, errors can be pinpointed early on in the design process thus resulting in a reduced development time.
