A compact, 300 kHz to 6, 12, or 20 GHz ultra low phase noise, 20 microsecond
switching, phase coherent signal generator with up to 4 (8) independent outputs
The APMSXXG is a phase coherent multi-output ultra-fast switching and low phase noise signal
generator with a frequency range from 300 kHz to 6, 12 or 20 GHz and is ideally suited for a wide
range of application, where good signal quality, accurate and wide output power range are
required. Excellent phase noise is combined with spurious and harmonic rejection.
A high-stability OCXO reference provides excellent frequency accuracy and stability. The generator
accepts a wide range of external references including the range from 1-250 MHz or 1 GHz.
The APMSXXG comes in a standard 19 inch 1U (up to 4 channels) or optionally 3U (8 channels)
enclosure and offers various control interfaces like USB, LAN or GPIB. Each interface allows easy
and fast communication using SCPI 1999 command set. Remote control of the instrument can be
quickly attained from any host system. A customer-supplied application programming interface
(API) or programming examples for Matlab, Labview, C++ and other commercially available tools
make implementation very straightforward.
The following options are supported:
PE4: electrical step attenuator
ULN: ultra low phase noise
IPM: intra-pulse modulation (not with ULN)
PHS: phase coherent switching (requires ULN)
GPIB: IEEE-488.2,1987 programming interface
