The MG3710A series of vector signal generators from Anritsu (Richardson, TX) generates test signals based on all leading technologies, including LTE, LTE Advanced, W-CDMA/HSPA, CDMA2000, GSM and PDC, as well as WLAN, Bluetooth®, and ISDB-T. Three models offer frequency coverage from 100 kHz to 2.7 GHz, 4 GHz, or 6 GHz, depending upon the instrument. The generators have two built-in RF outputs, each of which allows two modulation schemes to be selected simultaneously, so up to four different RF signals can be generated at one time. The unit has ACLR of -71 dBc, which allows tests to be made closer to the device under test (DUT). SSB phase noise performance is

The instrument features vector modulation bandwidth of 120 MHz that can be extended to 160 MHz using an external IQ input, and absolute level accuracy is ±0.5 dB. High power output of +23 dBm eliminates the need for an external amplifier. It features switching speed of
