Keysight Agilent HP N5183A

N5183A Agilent RF Generator

Microwave Analog Signal Generator

The N5183A is a 40 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.

The Keysight Agilent HP N5183A MXG microwave analog signal generators deliver the performance needed for broadband component manufacturing up to 40 GHz. This instrument provides ≤ 900 µs frequency switching (≤600 µs typically) to improve test times for applications like antenna test and manufacturing, with a small size (2RU) to better utilize rack space. Excellent power and level accuracy make the MXG microwave a reliable stimulus for driving high power devices. The MXG microwave can be configured to meet your test needs today, from LO substitution and CW interferer to analog modulation for device characterization, and is easily upgraded to meet your needs in the future.
