Vector Signal Generator: VSG25A

Source: Signal Hound

The VSG25A is a vector signal generator from Signal Hound featuring a 12-bit I/Q baseband waveform generator that is designed to easily generate analog, digital, and arbitrary waveforms. With the ability to be clocked at any frequency from 54 kHz to 180 MHz, and with an operating frequency range of 100 MHz to 2.5 GHz, this device also includes a 4096 x 16 bit pattern buffer for built-in or custom modulation.

The VSG25A features less than 1 Hz of frequency resolution, a timebase accuracy (excluding temperature drift) of ± 5 ppm/year, absolute amplitude accuracy of -40 to +10 dBm, and a pulse width from 6 ns to 25 ms. This signal generator is capable of multi-tone test patterns, is USB-powered, and has more than 1000 simultaneous tones.
