Agilent Technologies (Santa Clara, CA) has introduced two microwave analog signal generators: the N5183B MXG and N5173B EXG. The MXG has phase noise of less than -124 dBc/Hz (at 10 GHz, 10 kHz offset). The EXG offers +20 dBm at 20 GHz and low harmonics of <-55 dBc to characterize broadband microwave components, such as filters and amplifiers. The generator also supports continuous-wave (CW) blocking for receiver testing or basic local-oscillator upconversion for point-to-point microwave backhaul links.
