The MG3690B series of broadband signal generators covers both RF and microwave frequencies from 0.1 Hz to 70 GHz. For mmW frequencies, the MG3690B’s coverage can be extended up to 325 GHz or beyond, with external multipliers. Thus, the MG3690B series is an ideal signal source for both RF and microwave requirements, fully configurable from simple to high performance applications.
The Anritsu MG3690B microwave signal generator series also offers the highest output power, best-in-class spectral purity, and fastest switching speed. For example, the Anritsu MG3692B can provide guaranteed +23 dBm at 20 GHz with -94 dBc/Hz phase noise at 1 kHz offset while typically switching at 5 ms per point! This level of performance eliminates the need for external amplification, enables the verification the toughest spectral purity requirements, and greatly reduces test times. If 5 ms per point is not fast enough then switch to the optional analog ramp sweep for even faster measurements.
The MG3690B also offers a full suite of modulation capabilities for signal simulations from simple to the most complex. These modulation options include Amplitude (AM), Frequency (FM), Phase (ØM), and Pulse (PM). The MG3690B can be configured to perform these modulations simultaneously via either internal or external waveform generators. For IQ modulation, the IF input option allows the easy up-conversion of an externally IQ-modulated RF signal.
The MG3690B replaces the original MG3690A signal generator, offering higher output power and faster frequency switching speed. Whether you have a requirement for a high power local oscillator that can deliver up to a half watt typically at 20 GHz, or you want to decrease the test time of an ATE station by greater than two folds, the Anritsu MG3690B will exceed your expectations. The MG3690B preserves full backward compatibility with the MG3690A and previous 68C/69B series of RF and microwave signal generators.
The Anritsu MG3690B is the ideal signal generator.
