E8257D Agilent RF Generator


The E8257D is a 67 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 Range: 250 kHz-67 GHz
  • Output Power typical performance: +23dBm @ 20 GHz, + 17dBm @ 40 GHz, + 14dBm @ 67 GHz with excellent level accuracy
  • Modulation: AM, FM, Pulse, Phase
  • Broad frequency ranges - 250 kHz to 20, 31.8, 40, 50 or 67 GHz (operational to 70 GHz) with 0.001 Hz resolution
  • High output power - typical performance of +23dBm @ 20 GHz, + 17dBm @ 40 GHz, + 14dBm @ 67 GHz with excellent level accuracy
  • World-class SSB phase noise
  • Flexible analog modulation formats - AM, FM, phase, and pulse
  • Dual internal function generators - sine, square, triangular, ramp, and noise waveforms
  • Easy frequency extension - up to 325 GHz with OML, Inc. AG Series mm-wave modules.
  • Narrow pulse modulation - typical 8ns rise/fall times and 20ns pulse width from 10 MHz to 67 GHz
  • Multiple high rate sweep modes - digital step/list sweep and analog ramp sweep featuring code compatibility with the Agilent HP 8757D scalar network analyzer
  • External control using PSA Series spectrum analyzer
  • Backwards compatible - same form factor and 100% code compatible with previous generations of PSG signal generators
The Agilent E8257D PSG analog signal generator's high output power and superior level accuracy often eliminates the need of an external amplifier for testing high power devices and minimizes test uncertainty to identify errors early in the design process. The world-class phase noise performance is ideal for local oscillator, low jitter clock substitution and adjacent channel selectivity tests. When testing advanced RF & microwave radar, communications, and control systems, the PSG analog signal generator delivers the performance you demand.
