Rigol Technologies, Inc. has announced their latest product, a high-performance RF signal source family, the DSG3000 series. As Rigol’s first RF signal source, the DSG3000 series offers standard AM/FM/ØM modulation, as well as options for I/Q modulation and I/Q baseband output. The instrument is available with maximum frequencies of either 3 GHz or 6 GHz.
Featuring a high signal purity with phase noise measuring <-110dBc/Hz@20kHz (typical) and a wide output range of -130dBm to +13dBm, the DSG3000 RF signal generator has standard pulse modulation with an on/off ratio of up to 80dB, with optional pulse train generator available. The DSG3000 series also has an amplitude accuracy of <0.5dB (typical). The standard 0.5ppm internal clock can be upgraded to an optional 5ppb high stability clock.
All modulations of the DSG3000 series support internal and external modulation modes and work with USB, LAN and GPIB remote control interfaces. LAN control is LXI-C and the instrument is supported by an IVI driver for convenient test system performance. The DSG3000 series also features a wear-free electronic attenuator design and an automatic flatness calibration function via external automated power meter control over USB. The standard 2U height of the DSG3000 is designed to save rack space, with rack mount kit also available from Rigol.
