83731A Agilent RF Generator


The 83731A 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.

The Agilent 83731A synthesized signal generator 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. This 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. This 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).
