RF Signal Generator for Signals up to 40 GHz

Siglent SSG6087A15 September 2023 - SIGLENT released the SSG6000A Series RF Signal Generator, a performance instrument for cutting-edge testing of microwave and millimeter waves with wide frequency range, excellent signal spectrum purity, high accuracy, and large power output. It is not only an ideal local oscillator and clock source, but also a high-performance analog signal source suitable for applications in R&D and production. The SSG6000A signal generator is built to deliver outstanding signal purity across a broad frequency range of 100 kHz to 40 GHz, even at high output power levels.

Excellent phase noise of -135 dBc/Hz, low sub harmonic signal components of < –80 dBc and low broadband noise of –155 dBc gives you confidence that you are testing your device and not the limits of your instrumentation. Coupled with exceptional frequency and power stability, the SSG6000A is a great solution for applications including LO emulation, radar, receiver, ADC/DAC, and components testing.

Long term stability is important in aging and lifecycle tests that can last days or weeks. The standard OCXO reference hardware module inside ensures high-precision and high stability signal output. High output power of +22 dBm can test high-power devices more accurately and stably without an external amplifier, and overcome the loss of the test system. The combination of high output power, low harmonics and standard step attenuation is suitable for characterizing broadband microwave components such as filters and amplifiers.

The SSG6000A supports AM and pulse modulation, pulse sequence generator, power meter control and other functions. Pulse modulation on/off ratio is more than 80 dB, and the rise/fall time is less than 15 ns. Pulse train generator has pulse width of 20 ns to 300 s and as many as 2047 different pulses. The pulse repetition period can be changed from 1 to a maximum of 65,535 which produces a very long, customizable pulse train that can be used for testing.

The SSG6000A features a 5-inch touch screen along with keypad and knob simplifying front panel operation. Two USB ports on the front panel enable connections to a variety of devices such as memory sticks and USB power sensors. The upgraded digital platform makes remote programming quick and efficient. The GUI includes multiple one-touch features that enable the user to quickly set up measurement parameters including gated and external trigger modes.

SSG6000A is upgradeable, reliable, and configurable for a broad range of applications from R&D to manufacturing and failure analysis. SIGLENT provides a total solution backed by proven reliability and our standard 3 years warranty plus pre-sale and post-sale support.
