E4428C Agilent RF Generator

Used
The E4428C is a 6 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:

  • 250 kHz to 3 or 6 GHz (.01 Hz resolution)
  • -136 to 17 dBm @ 1 GHz and 10 dBm @ 6 GHz output power
  • +/-0.5 to +/-0.9 dB level accuracy (> -110 dBm)
  • -134 dBc/Hz SSB phase noise @ 20 kHz offset, 1 GHz carrier (typ)
  • Enhanced phase noise performance (Option UNJ) ships standard
  • High-stability timebase: oven-controlled crystal oscillator (OXCO)
  • AM, FM, ØM, and pulse (may be simultaneously enabled)
  • Typical 6 ns rise/fall times and 20 ns pulse width
  • Dual internal function generators: sine, square, triangular, ramp, and noise
  • 10BaseT LAN and GPIB
  • SCPI and IVI-COM drivers
  • Backwards compatible with all ESG signal generators

The Agilent E4428C ESG analog signal generator delivers outstanding spectral purity, level accuracy, output power, and analog modulation performance up to 3 or 6 GHz for all general-purpose test needs. This makes the Agilent E4428C ESG a superb choice for general-purpose tests requiring CW, AM, ØM, and FM receiver and component test signals in the cellular, ISM, and UNII frequency bands.
