8656A Agilent RF Generator

The 8656A is a 990 MHz 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.

Additional Features:

  • Frequency range: 100 kHz to 990 MHz
  • Output levels of -127 dBm to +13 dBm
  • Internal modulation (2 digit display): 400 and 1000 Hz, AM, FM or combination
  • HP-IB Interface

The Agilent 8656A has a wide range and covers the IF and LO frequencies as well as the RF frequencies of most receivers. It also allows testing in a variety of communication systems including the 800 MHz FM mobile band and some telemetry bands. Frequency resolution of 100 or 250 Hz allows convenient setting of increments including 6.25 kHz channel spacings.
