N5162A-503 – Agilent / HP Signal Generators

N5162A-503 – Agilent / HP Signal Generators
3.00GHz (Frequency Range Max.)
The N5162A MXG ATE RF signal generator provides the same industry-leading performance, reliability, and form factor (2RU) of the popular N5182A MXG — all at a reduced price. This signal generator has been streamlined for automated test equipment (ATE) needs with the removal of the front-panel display and all connectors relocated to the rear panel for convenient and secure rack configurations. Combining the outstanding MXG performance with a base price reduction over the N5182A MXG signal generator, makes the N5162A MXG ATE vector signal generator ideally suited for today’s demanding production environment.

Simplified self-maintenance decreases time for repair and performance verification, keeping downtime to less than 2 hours using field-replaceable assemblies.

Option 503 is recommended for test cases that require CW, analog modulated, and vector modulated RF test signals at or below 3 GHz carrier frequencies. This option is ideal for popular communications systems in the cellular and lower ISM frequency bands, such as W-CDMA, cdma2000®, WLAN, and WiMAX™. Common signal generation uses include LO and clock substitution, interference generation, and reference signal generation for analog and digital components and receivers.
•Covers the cellular and lower ISM frequency bands
•Frequency resolution: 0.01 Hz
•Phase noise performance: -116 dBc/Hz at 1 GHz carrier, 20 kHz offset
•Output power: +23 dBm at 2 GHz with electronic attenuator
