8648D Agilent RF Generator
The 8648D is a 4 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.
- Frequency range: 9 kHz to 4000 MHz
- Superior level accuracy
- Wide frequency and output power coverage
- Optional pulse modulation and high power
- Remote and memory interfaces for semi-automated testing
- Simple, dependable operation
The Agilent 8648D is designed for semi-automated receiver test, and a variety of general purpose applications. This signal generator starts with the basic capabilities of the Agilent 8647A, enhances residual FM, level accuracy and phase noise performance, offers optional pulse modulation and high power, and extends the frequency to 4 GHz. While economical,it is built to stringent quality standards, promoting reliability and measurement repeatability. In addition, the simplistic design of the front panel shortens the operator's learning curve and increases productivity. With 300 storage registers and ten user-definable sequences (accessible from a remote keypad), it easily adapts to any test procedure. The Agilent 8648D is ideal for manufacturing high-volume products such as cordless telephones, pagers and two-way radios from 9 kHz to 4000 MHz.
