8664A Agilent RF Generator

Used
The 8664A is a 3 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.

Additional Features:

  • Frequency: 3 GHz
  • <-100 dBc nonharmonic spurious to 2 GHz reduces error when testing spurious immunity of receivers
  • AM, FM, and optional pulse modulation
  • 0.01 Hz frequency resolution
  • <-140 dBc/Hz typical SSB phase noise at 20 kHz offset at 1 GHz with Option 004

The Agilent 8664A signal generator is suited for basic receiver testing up to 3.0 GHz. With Option 004 (low-noise enhancement), it can be used for out-of-channel receiver testing or as a clock source where having the lowest phase jitter is important. Radar testing can be done by adding Option 008 (pulse modulation) . Pulse width and delay can be internally adjusted between 50 ns and 999 ns, eliminating the need for an external pulse generator. Standard FM rates of up to 2 MHz and deviations to 10 MHz are suitable for many applications such as high-speed digital communications.
