2051 IFR RF Generator
The 2051 is a 2.75 GHz RF Generator from IFR . 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.
- Frequency range: 10 kHz to 2.7 GHz
- PSK, FSK, QAM, GMSK
- I and Q modulation to 10 MHz (1 dB bw.)
- External digital data input
- Internal PRBS data source
- Excellent accuracy and stability
- Envelope control for RF bursts
- Programmable channel filter characteristics
- Variable data rate control
- NADC, PDC, GSM, TETRA plus others
- Wide band DCFM for fast FSK
- Baseband I & Q outputs
The 2051 combines comprehensive analog modes, AM, FM, PM and Pulse (optional), with I Q vector modulation. A digital mode using internal DSP (digital signal processing) is provided to convert digital data into complex modulation formats.
Two FM modes are available, wideband FM (>10 MHz) for fast FSK or video applications and a 1 MHz bandwidth mode. Both modes offer FM deviations up to 1% of carrier frequency. FM is available as either DC or AC coupled. A patented FM nulling correction system eliminates carrier frequency offsets that occur with lesser generators when using DCFM, and allows the 2050 to be used confidently with Wireless LAN or paging equipment such as POCSAG, FLEXTM and ERMES.
These instruments are suitable for a wide range of applications including the testing of new digital communication systems.
