Datasheet Accessory Kit

The Giga-Tronics 2540B signal generator delivers industry-best offset phase noise performance, high output power, and fast frequency switching speeds in a single unit. Loaded with performance features such as high time base stability, frequency modulation (FM), high-speed pulse/square wave modulation (PM), amplitude modulation (AM) and high leveled output power makes it an excellent test solution for a wide range of CW, modulation, swept frequency, and fast frequency switching applications in both R&D and manufacturing environment.

 

Key Features:

  • Frequency ranges - 2 GHz to 40 GHz with 0.001Hz resolution
  • Fast Frequency and Level switching time - < 550 μsec for ΔF0≤ 500 MHz
  • Ultra-low Close-in Phase Noise
  • High output power: +13 dBm at 40 GHz
  • Full Suite of Analog Modulation
  • Low Harmonics, Low Spurious

Advanced Synthesizer Technology:

The 2540B signal generator utilizes new Advanced Synthesizer Technology that delivers excellent close in phase noise performance of -77dBc @ 100 Hz and -96dBc @ 1KHz and an ultra low phase noise performance of -109 dBc @ 10 kHz and 100 kHz offset on a 10 GHz carrier frequency.


Faster to Program:

Every 2540B signal generator comes with Giga-tronics Automation Xpress, a PC based software package designed for enhanced user interface and automatic test systems. The Automation Xpress CD includes a full-featured plug-and-play driver and soft front panels to provide the ATE system integrator with everything needed to get up and running fast. A comprehensive LIST mode, Command-Line interpreter with script and loop capability, and GPIB traffic monitoring are just a few of the many features a test system programmer will appreciate when developing and debugging Test Program Sets.
