Siglent Introduces 4 GHz & 6 GHz RF Signal Generators

Siglent Technologies has introduced two new RF Signal Generator models for standard and advanced applications with output frequencies up to 6 GHz and Vector Signal Generation capability. These generators support a wide variety of RF testing applications including the NR-5G Band (FR1) between 3.4 and 3.7 GHz.

Siglent’s new Model SSG5000X Series RF Signal Generator can source analog and vector signals up to 4 GHz or 6 GHz. In the same family, the new SSG5000X-V Series generator features internal IQ modulation with an RF Modulation Bandwidth up to 150 MHz and an arbitrary waveform playback function. A well-designed menu structure makes it easy to create complex signal types.

Both of these new RF Signal Generators feature superior performance specifications. The phase noise specification is -120 dBc (@1 GHz / 20 kHz offset), the regulated maximum output level goes up to +20 dBm (settable up to +26 dBm), and the minimum output level is -130 dBm (settable down to -140 dBm). The SSG5000X can also be upgraded with an optional OCXO-module that improves the temperature stability of the source, which is especially important for precision tests and manufacturing applications.

The SSG5000X Series comes standard with a 5-inch touch display. The front panel and display menu structure is easily accessible and well designed, so that it takes only minutes to learn. Like most newly introduced Siglent test instruments, the SSG5000X incorporates a web server for easy remote control over Ethernet. This unit offers all analog modulation types including Pulse-Modulation as a standard feature. Different types of Frequency or Amplitude sweeps can be set and combined. The Signal Valid and Trigger In/Out BNC-connectors on the back side enable a smooth and easy implementation into automated test systems. All units support the connection of an external USB-Power Meter in order to compensate the path loss between the RF out of the generator and the DUT.

The 4 GHz Versions SSG5040X-V can be upgraded to 6 GHz at any time by using a Software License Key. The price for the new SSG5000X Series starts at $8,809.
