SMC100A Datasheet Brochure
The Rohde & Schwarz SMC100A Signal Generator emanates signals ranging from 9 kHz to 1.1 GHz or 3.2 GHz with a maximum power output level of >+17 dBM. This signal generator is a lightweight (3.9 kg), high-quality, versatile testing device with AM, FM, φM and pulse modulation modes integrated as standard features. Rohde & Schwarz SMC100A models are remote control compatible with other signal generator units, support nine languages and are built to last with integrated overvoltage protection. Built-in self-testing software provides error diagnostics and level accuracy is optimized through level correction. A low SSB phase noise, low wideband noise and superior nonharmonic suppression allow this signal generator to excel at all applications in which spectrally pure signals are essential. Renting the Rohde & Schwarz SMC100A Signal Generator is especially beneficial for technicians seeking to minimize the cost of procuring a signal generator.
