Keysight N5172B EXG RF Vector Signal Generator Description

From 9 kHz to 6 GHz, the Keysight N5172B analog and vector MXG and EXG signal generator deliver unmatched performance in five key categories: phase noise and spectral purity, bandwidth, EVM, ACPR, and output power.

Perform advanced receiver testing compatible with the latest standards using the MXG or EXG and Signal Studio software: define signal parameters, transfer them to the instrument, and use closed-loop or interactive control during signal generation.

X-Series signal generators are designed for high reliability and simplified service. One key example is the self-maintenance strategy: if onsite repairs are ever needed, they can be completed in less than two hours with our refurbished-parts exchange program.

Keysight N5172B Features

  • Achieve faster throughput and greater uptime with cost-effective performance optimised for manufacturing test
  • Perform basic parametric testing of components and functional verification of receivers with industry-leading ACPR, EVM, and output power
  • Reduce the time you spend on signal creation with Signal Studio software; purchase only the waveforms you need with 5- and 50-pack licensing
  • Minimise downtime and expenses with self-maintenance solutions and low-cost repairs
