N5162A – Agilent / HP Signal Generators

N5162A – Agilent / HP Signal Generators
6.00GHz (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.
