DSG800 RF Signal Generator

Performance capabilities at an entry level price for RF Signal Sources

1.5 GHz and 3 GHz sources capable of +20 dBm with OCXO timebase and pulse modulation options

The DSG800 series covers output frequencies from 9 kHz to 3 GHz. The instruments provide maximum output power up to +20 dBm and low SSB phase noise -105 dBc/Hz, amplitude accuracy of +/- 0.5 dB, and frequency resolution of 0.01 Hz at any frequency. An oven-controlled crystal oscillator time-base option provides < 5 ppb temperature stability and < 30 ppb/year aging stability, the most accurate and stable timebase available in this class. For IoT and RF applications from design to debug the DSG800 series provides uncompromised RF signal generation capabilities at an unprecedented value.

  • Frequency range 9 kHz tot 1.5 GHz (DSG815) or 3 GHz (DSG830)
  • Amplitude accuracy < 0.5 dB
  • 110 dBm to +13 dBm RF output power (+20 dBm unleveled)
  • Phase noise < -105 dBc/Hz (typ)
  • Clock stability 2 ppm (standard), optional 5 ppb
  • Standard frequency and amplitude sweep function (step, list, linear, logarithmic, continuous or single)
  • Standard analog AM/FM/ØM modulation (internal/external)
  • Optional pulse modulation with up to 70 dB on/off ration and pulse train generator
  • Compact 2 HE dimensions (rack mount kits available)
  • Amplitude correction for cables, amplifiers, antennas etc
  • Standard USB Host & Device and LXI LAN interfaces, SCPI command set
  • 3 Year warranty
