Agilent 83712B Signal Generator

The Agilent 83712B Synthesized CW Signal Generator has key oscillators and exchanged low-pass channels convey < - 55 dBc sounds, take out subharmonics, and smother spurious to < - 60 dBc. This signal generator gives a lot of output control (normally > + 14 dBm), while its capabilities are kept up even at high power levels (output control at frequencies beneath 1 GHz is + 20 dBm). This signal generator has >100 dB of dynamic range. Level determination is 0.01 dB with normal precision of ± 1.0 dB at any recurrence or power level. Client Level Correction rearranges creating exact, leveled control at far off test ports. The Agilent 83712B Signal Generator is the prescribed local oscillator for the HP 8970B noise figure meter with low broadband phase limits mistakes in estimations of low pick up gadgets.

You can utilize this signal generator with the HP 83550 arrangement millimeter-wave modules to create signs to 110 GHz. All front-board capacities are totally HP-IB-programmable and SCPI-good. This model offers a Recurrence Range between 10 MHz to 20 GHz, Recurrence Resolution of 1 kHz, 1 Hz (Opt 1E8), Output Power (with Option 1E1) between 0.01 to 1 GHz (+13 dBm), 1 to 18 GHz (+10 dBm) and 18 to 20 GHz (+8 dBm).

The 83712B has a Determination of 0.01 dB, Precision (- 4 dBm to most extreme indicated leveled output control) of 10 MHz to 50 MHz, ±1.3 dB; 50 MHz to 20 GHz, ±1.0 dB. Music: < - 50 dBc (at levels < +10 dBm), it doesn’t have Sub-Harmonics, Non-Harmonic Spurious (>3 kHz) of - 60 dBc.

Some of the most popular options are Option 1E1, which adds 110 dB of Output Step Attenuator, Option 1E2 which adds High-Performance Modulation Generator, Option 1E5 which adds High-Stability Time base, Option 1E8 which adds 1 Hz Frequency Resolution and Option 1E9 with  3.5 mm RF Output Connector.
