SMA100A – Rohde & Schwarz Signal Generators

SMA100A – Rohde & Schwarz Signal Generators
6.00GHz (Frequency Range Max.)
The R&S SMA 100A combines superior signal quality with very high setting speed, which makes it ideal for any task. Whether in development, production, service or maintenance, the R&S SMA 100A does an excellent job.

In the frequency range from 9 kHz to 6 GHz, it can generate CW signals as well as all common types of analog modulation (AM, FM, φM, pulse modulation). Excellent specifications and a wide range of modulation signals – these are the characteristic features of the R&S SMA 100A. In addition, a low-jitter clock synthesizer option supplies differential clock signals of up to 1.5 GHz independently of the RF frequency.
•Very low SSB phase noise of typ. –135 dBc
•Wideband noise of typ. –160 dBc
•Nonharmonics of typ. –100 dBc
•Very short frequency and level setting times of <3 ms across the entire frequency and level range •Fast hopping mode with flexibly addressable frequency and level pairs, as fast as normal list mode •Frequency setting time of typ. <10 μs within a bandwidth of 40 MHz due to direct access to the DDS-based synthesizer (with the R&S SMA-B20 or -B22 option) •Very high level accuracy and repeatability •Electronic attenuator with built-in overvoltage protection over entire frequency range •Pulse modulator with excellent characteristics (on/off ratio >80 dB, rise/fall time typ. 10 ns)
•Pulse generator integrated as standard
•Built-in LF generator up to 1 MHz, optional multifunction generator (R&S SMA-K24) up to 10 MHz
•Optional low-jitter clock synthesizer up to 1.5 GHz (R&S SMA-B29)
•Intuitive user interface with graphical display of signal flow (block diagram)
•Remote control via GPIB or LAN
•USB connectors (e.g. for keyboard, mouse, memory stick)
•Selectable SCPI- or 8662A/63A-compatible IEC/IEEE bus command set
•Control via remote operation tool (e.g. VNC)
