Keysight E8257D PSG Analog Signal Generator Description

The Keysight E8257D PSG analog signal generator delivers industry-leading output power, level accuracy, and phase noise performance up to 67 GHz. The 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 minimises test uncertainty to identify errors early in the design process.

The world-class phase noise performance (typically -126 dBc/Hz @ 10 GHz carrier and 10 kHz offset) 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.
 

Modular Microwave Signal Generator Platform – Optionally Add AM, FM, ØM, and/or Pulse Generate continuous wave (CW) signals for LO substitution or swept stimulus response analysis. Optionally add AM, FM, ØM and/or pulse modulation to accurately characterise RF and microwave components and devices. Many performance enhancement options are also available to configure the signal generator to meet your specific test requirements.

Keysight E8257D Key Features & Functions

  • Address your toughest requirements with metrology-grade frequency & level accuracy with excellent distortion & spurious characteristics
  • Test high-power devices & overcome test system losses with 1 W output power
  • Address the demanding needs of Doppler radar, ADC & receiver-blocking tests with the PSG’s extremely low phase noise
  • Characterise devices & circuits by adding AM, FM, PM & pulse modulation to your signal
  • Meet test system needs up to 1.1 THz with frequency extender modules
