Cost Effective, High Performance Compact USB RF Signal Generator

Saelig has announced the availability of a cost-effective pocketable USB-connected RF Vector Signal Generator from Triarchy Technologies. The VSG6G1C provides standalone and PC-controlled functions comparable to full-size analog RF signal generators.

The signal generator operates from 1 MHz to 6.1 GHz with frequency sweep, frequency hopping using I&Q modulation, and arbitrary signal generation, this compact signal source can generate most of the modulated signals that RF engineers might need. The VSG6G1C's many test functions can be customized to meet the needs of proprietary and other nonstandard wireless protocols.

It’s compact design is ideal for field test situations since it can be conveniently added to a field service kit, and configured to operate standalone without any connected PC - just a 5V USB source or battery pack. The Vector Signal Generator can also operate in ATE systems as a signal source module, simulating many different RF systems for test purposes.

With output levels up to 10 dBm, signals can be delivered in CW, sweeping, and hopping modes. The unit features a built-in pulse generator for creating pulse modulation. The built-in arbitrary function generator adds the ability to generate a wide range of modulation modes, such as: I&Q modulation, AM, PM, FM analog, FSK, ASK, PSK, MSK, GMSK, SFSK, as well as digital modulation schemes such as QPSK, 8PSK, QAM, and phase modulation types such as CDMA, TMDA, GSM and more. A reference clock input and output is provided.

Being compact (4" x 1" x 1") and housed in a light (3oz) metal case, the signal output is provided via an N connector, while the I&Q connectors provide I&Q input and output. A pulse output is available at the rear of the unit for synchronization purposes or when using the device as pulse generator. Intuitive PC software is supplied which displays a simple desktop instrument front panel for adjustments and for setup.

The VSG6G1C RF Vector Signal Generator is made by Triarchy Technologies, an innovative Canadian RF design house.
