Manual Datasheet

The Agilent 8664A signal generator is suited for basic receiver testing up to 3.0 GHz. With Option 004 (low-noise enhancement), it can be used for out-of-channel receiver testing or as a clock source where having the lowest phase jitter is important. Radar testing can be done by adding Option 008 (pulse modulation) . Pulse width and delay can be internally adjusted between 50 ns and 999 ns, eliminating the need for an external pulse generator. Standard FM rates of up to 2 MHz and deviations to 10 MHz are suitable for many applications such as high-speed digital communications.



  • 100kHz - 3GHz
  • Low SSB phase noise (Option 004)
  • AM and wideband FM
  • High performance pulse modulation (Option 008)
  • Ultra low leakage (Option 010)


Applications (3 GHz):

RF communications
Out-of-channel receiver testing: Ideal for receivers with ≥90 dB selectivity with Option 004, and/or spurious immunity of <85 dB to 3 GHz
General purpose Wideband FM with rates to 6 MHz for simulation of many new digital systems
Component Test
Ideal clock source with low phase jitter for high speed digital components
Radar/EW testing
Optional pulse modulation with internal delay and width adjust
Coverage of most weather and avionics radars, Option 008 provides pulse modulation capable of generating appropriate pulse width and delay internally
